Apple fixes a vulnerability exploited by an Israeli spyware vendor. An ATM skimmer is sentenced to four years after cameras recorded his crime spree. And the Kremlin is as reliable as expected when it comes to curbing ransomware. This is CyberScoop for September 14, 2021.

Hackers use a craft technique to breach iPhones

Apple released a patch Monday for two security vulnerabilities, one of which the Israeli surveillance company NSO Group has exploited, according to researchers at Citizen Lab. The zero-click exploit allowed NSO Group clients to infiltrate target iPhones without the target even needing to click on a message or link. Researchers, Apple, and U.S. cybersecurity officials are urging users to update their iOS devices ASAP. NSO Group declined to comment on the allegations. Tonya Riley has the details.

Prison time for another ATM skimmer who focused on NYC, NJ

A U.S. judge sentenced a Romanian man who installed data-stealing devices on ATMs throughout New York City and New Jersey to more than four years in prison in what is only the latest example of scammers using crude technical methods to access victims’ bank accounts. As part of a fraud ring, Dorinel Trofin and an associate would install hidden card-reading machines on popular ATMs, copying customers’ information and then withdrawing cash from the same accounts later. The pair also installed pinhole cameras in the cash machines to capture customers’ personal identification numbers. The effort affected more than 1,000 people and involved more than $1.5 million in attempted losses. Jeff Stone looks closer.


No help from Russia on slowing ransomware, FBI says

During an appearance Tuesday at the Intelligence National Security Alliance summit, FBI Deputy Director Paul Abbate said "there is no indication that the Russian government has taken action to crack down on ransomware actors that are operating in the permissive environment they have created there" since the White House began discussions with Kremlin after a series of high profile attacks. The update comes after Anne Neuberger, a key national security official, said the U.S. has noted a "reduction" in extortion-style hacks. What happens next is anyone's guess. Here's more on the issue.
