Your weekly top 5 technical and security issues Nerds should pay attention to:

Phishing email attacks targeting remote workers on the rise. This isn’t really a surprise since that’s where security is weakest.

Malwarebytes hit by hackers implicated in SolarWinds breach. Their own reporting, but originally disclosed in a tweet by @mkleczynski.

SonicWall’s internal network hacked using a SonicWall zero-day. Security is hard, even for security companies.

Laptops given to British schools came preloaded with remote-access worm. Oh boy. Although, unfiltered student computers, in our experience, don’t take long to get drive-by malware anyway.

DDoSers are abusing Microsoft RDP to make attacks more powerful. Not that we needed another reason to keep RDP unexposed, but there is another one now.

Did you know? 

Beeper brings iMessage to Android, but there’s a catch.

For my video narration version of the above see: https://youtu.be/l0jIJh8BVVY
