Hackers accessed patient, employee data in Canadian health systems

Canadian officials say that culprits behind a cyberattack on the Newfoundland and Labrador province's health care system were able to access patient and employee data, in some cases going back 14 years. The attack, first detected Oct. 30, led to the cancellation of thousands of medical appointments. Authorities had been largely mum on details of the attack until Tuesday, and still aren't talking about key matters like whether the attackers sought money. Tim Starks has the story.

Don't vote, said a network of fake Twitter accounts in Honduras

Hundreds of fake Twitter accounts targeted opposition candidates and urged citizens not to vote in an upcoming Honduran presidential election, according to research published Wednesday by threat intelligence firm Nisos. The 317 accounts appear to be part of an effort to influence the Nov. 28 Honduran presidential election by denigrating two  opposition candidates running against the incumbent National Party of Honduras’ candidate, Nasry Asfura. It's the latest example of disinformation at work in Latin America, where campaigns have recently been exposed in Honduras and neighboring Nicaragua. AJ Vicens reports.


Move over, Fancy Bear

Trend Micro said on Wednesday it has discovered a new Russian-language cyber mercenary group that has been going after targets ranging from Russian businesses to journalists and politicians. So far, TrendMicro researchers have uncovered more than 3,500 targets of the group. In September, researchers found that hackers “targeted the private email addresses of a former head of an intelligence agency, five active government ministers (including the minister of defense) and two members of the national parliament of an Eastern European country.” Tonya Riley has more.
