Putin, Biden posture on possible hacker exchange

A discussion over an exchange of accused hackers from Russia and the U.S. could be on the agenda this week when President Joe Biden meets with his Russian counterpart on the shores of Lake Geneva in Switzerland. Vladimir Putin, in an interview with Russian state media, said he’d consider the possibility of extraditing accused hackers from Russia to America under the condition that the U.S. would do the same. During a news conference at a Group of Seven summit, Biden said he would be “open” to the idea of holding accused hackers in the U.S. accountable for violating the law. The issue is far from settled.

EA Games’ security is slacking

The company behind FIFA World Cup and other popular games confirmed last week that hackers stole valuable source code. Hackers allegedly got into the system by first infiltrating the company’s Slack and then posing as an employee requesting to request authentication from IT support in order to log in to the company systems. The incident comes among a rise in attacks against video game companies. Tonya Riley dug in.


The Hamburglar Cometh

McDonald’s became the latest fast food vendor to have customer data stolen by hackers after the burger chain revealed a breach Friday. Email addresses, phone numbers and delivery addresses for customers in South Korea and Taiwan were affected. McDonald’s said additional markets were affected but did not name them. Sean Lyngaas tracked down the story.


Avaddon gone?

The ransomware gang Avaddon appeared to shut down last week. It did so as it was climbing the charts of the most active ransomware operators, prompting a lot of speculation about what caused the departure. They also let their remaining victims off the hook, releasing decryption keys that led to Emsisoft producing a free decryption tool. Tim Starks explores the mystery.
