At least $20B worth of cyber in Biden budget blueprint

President Joe Biden proposed $9.8 billion for federal civilian cybersecurity and $10.8 billion for unclassified DOD cyberspace operations for fiscal 2022.

Tim Starks hits the highlights.


Making government supplier VDPs more official

Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., announced legislation on Tuesday that would require U.S. government vendors to have vulnerability disclosure policies and programs, echoing a requirement that DHS put in place last year for agencies themselves to maintain them.

ATM skimming suspect tries fighting off police in Mexico, video shows

Police in Mexico have arrested the alleged head of a financial fraud operation that used corrupt ATMs to steal more than $1 billion from tourists in recent years. Florian Tudor, a Romanian man perhaps better known as “The Shark,” was apprehended on Thursday when officials from Mexico’s attorney general’s office took him into custody. The incident erupted in wrestling, shouting and authorities carrying Tudor out of the building by his arms and legs, according to video published by news outlets in Mexico City. Jeff has the context.


Jury finds Methbot boss guilty

It didn't take long for jurors in New York City to decide that Aleksandr Zhukov, who spearheaded a $7 million fraud scheme with help from a botnet, was guilty. Zhukov, a Russian man, was arrested in 2018 on charges that he founded the so-called Methbot operation, an international scheme to defraud U.S. advertising firms who thought they were investing in online advertisements. In fact, they were funneling cash to an innovative team of internet scammers. We're covered it since the beginning.
