CERT-SE:s veckobrev v.29

Trots högsommar händer många spännande händelser i cybervärlden. Mycket uppmärksamhet har det varit kring avslöjandet om att övervakningsföretaget NSO:s programvara Pegasus, missbrukas för att övervaka journalister och människorättsaktivister. Kaseya meddelar att de har fått tag på dekrypteringsnyckeln för REvil-ransomware och har börjat dela denna med drabbade kunder.

Trevlig läsning! Nu gör CERT-SE:s veckobrev ett sommaruppehåll och är tillbaka vecka 35.
