Each morning I receive Cyber Threat Intelligence briefings - they outline current threats, attacks,etc.. that are occurring. I usually don't see many of these reported in the news, some come from online sources, news reports, government investigations/reports.
There are a few things that I thought you all would be interested in.

1) Snatch ransomware is becoming a favorite of Russian hackers
https://www.zdnet.com/article/snatch-ra ... irus-apps/
The authors of the Snatch ransomware are using a never-before-seen trick to bypass antivirus software and encrypt victims' files without being detected.

The trick relies on rebooting an infected computer into Safe Mode, and running the ransomware's file encryption process from there.

The reason for this step is that most antivirus software does not start in Windows Safe Mode, a Windows state meant for debugging and recovering a corrupt operating system.

However, the Snatch crew discovered that they could use a Windows registry key to schedule a Windows service to start in Safe Mode. This service would run their ransomware in Safe Mode without the risk of being detected by antivirus software, and having its encryption process stopped.

2) Russian hacking against Ukraine
https://www.cyberscoop.com/gamaredon-ap ... -foritnet/
A suspected Russian hacking campaign that’s resulted in attacks against Ukrainian military and government agencies also has affected journalists, law enforcement and nongovernmental organizations, according to new findings.

Gamaredon, a hacking group that has been active since 2013 and mostly haunted Ukrainian government targets, has broadened its reach within that country, the threat intelligence company Anomali said in research published Dec. 5.

Agreed - this kid is just a human shield for hardcore leftist adults pushing a total transformation of the global economy without regard for the consequences

The “owning the libs” motivation is not unique to the Trumpies

I was referring to Greta. It's adults tearing down a kid because her words hurt their feelings.

Whatever. She is speaking up for what she believes and making herself a public figure. Many people disagree so they will have different reactions. The fact that she is a minor makes more of the natural reaction to laugh at her. I'm sure there are some yelling or stomping their feet, but I haven't seen that.

You want to see adults tear down a kid, compare the reaction to Greta to the reaction to Nick Sandman, who did NOT make himself a public figure and voiced NO opinion. There was pure venom spewed over and over. :nod:

You aren't paying attention then. There are adults that are being downright cruel and disgusting, all because a little girl is saying something. All a bunch of pussies, if you ask me.

Same goes for the snowflakes that were tearing down Sandman. It's all shameful.

Here? As I said "I'm sure there are some yelling or stomping their feet". There are ugly people all over the world. But Jeff was trying to make it sound that either folks here were slamming her (I think everyone here is simply laughing at her), or that a majority of folks on the right are. I don't think either is the case.

Again, if you're offended by people taking shots at her, don't put her out there as an easy target.

She can't be a sword and a shield at the same time.

I guess I’m not a “shoot the messenger” kinda guy.

I’ve learned that when people start attacking the person or the process instead of the facts, it’s because they either can’t or won’t.


Plus, civility doesn’t cease if someone is a public figure. Just my opinion.

A 16 year old who made an adult decision to be the spokesperson of a global movement.

Unless we want to argue that it wasn’t her choice and she’s being used, then she’s as fair game as any adult.

16 year olds don't make adult decisions. Adults however do act like 10 year old children including the President of the United States Donald J. Trump. It's pathetic that an old man who happens to be our President is stalking and harassing a 16 year old girl on social media for being named a Time Person of the Year (remember how excited Trump was when he was named in 2016?). Children are NEVER fair game....Melania Trump told us this....right? Their causes are fair game.....THEY are not. Particularly harassment directed at her medical condition.......it fucking pathetic man. You are too.....twat. :thumb:

:coffee:
Thanks for agreeing that she's being manipulated.

Why aren't you mad at those people?

You just totally ignore the basic fact that the President of the United States Donald J. Trump verbally assaulted a 16 year old girl on Twitter because she stole his award. He's a fucking 70-something year old jealous attention whore who can't even follow his own wife's #BeBest campaign of internet anti-bullying. How pathetic for the leader of the free world and for people like you who claim to profess their concern for children.....I guess for you that only includes fetuses or children of Republicans. :roll: :thumbdown:

Stop trying to deflect that this conversation today is not about her activism is about an adult man harassing 16 year old girl......with Asperger syndrome no less. I hope your children turn out better than you, twat. :thumb:

Don't worry, they are better people partly because of the values I instilled in them. I thank God every day that you hate children and don't reproduce.
