The Justice Department is taking a second look at its cybersecurity policies. A Navalny ally is cautioning about phishing attacks linked to him. And Magecart is going after food delivery platforms. This is CyberScoop for May 3, 2021.

The DOJ is rethinking everything cyber

The rising tide of ransomware attacks and supply chain breaches has prompted America’s top law enforcement agency to go back to the drawing board. The Justice Department has begun a 120-day review of its cybersecurity policies, and officials say they’ll leave no stone unturned in exploring new ideas. “We need to rethink … and really assess are we using the most effective strategies” against such hacking, Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco said Friday. Sean Lyngaas reports.

A phishing warning from Navalny’s chief of staff

Some people are more experienced in dealing with scammers and spies than others. Take Leonid Volkov, the chief of staff for Russian opposition figure Alexei Navalny. Someone has been posing as Volkov in an apparent effort to smear think tanks. On Friday, Volkov told policymakers and academics to be wary of such subterfuge. “It looks like not enough lessons have been drawn from John Podesta clicking those phishing [links] back in 2016,” Volkov said. Sean has more.


Remember Magecart?

The pandemic has been a boon for food delivery services, but also for crooks exploiting them. Look no further than the latest report from Gemini Advisory: five breaches of food delivery platforms in the last six months, tallying 343,000 stolen payment cards. Sean has the details.


Too close for contact

About 72,000 Pennsylvanians may have had their personal information compromised by a contact-tracing vendor working with the state’s health department, the agency acknowledged last week. Employees at Insight Global, a staffing agency the state hired last year to hire and train nearly 1,000 contact tracers, “disregarded security protocols established in the contract and created unauthorized documents” including Pennsylvanians' phone numbers, emails, genders, ages, sexual orientations, COVID-19 diagnoses and exposure statuses. The state, which has paid Insight Global nearly $30 million, plans to find a new contact-tracing vendor when the company's contract expires in July. StateScoop's Ryan Johnston has more.
