The calendar turns, and so does the cyber news. But your favorites from 2021 are hardly going away anytime soon. This is CyberScoop for January 3.

Ready for 2022?

New year, but not a clean slate: We’ll continue to report on the <a href="https://preprod.cyberscoop.com/chinese-hackers-use-log4j-exploit-to-go-after-academic-institution/">fallout from the Log4j bug</a> in the coming weeks, as the biggest vulnerability story from late 2021 will remain big in 2022. Our old friends <a href="https://preprod.cyberscoop.com/shutterfly-ransomware-conti/">ransomware</a> and <a href="https://preprod.cyberscoop.com/fake-termination-notices-dridex-evil-corp/">phishing</a> will still be on our radar, of course, and we’ll be watching nation-state hackers, spyware purveyors, online scammers, privacy issues and cybersecurity industry developments, too. Thanks for being a loyal reader!

Israeli newspaper's website is defaced

What appeared to be a pro-Iranian hacking group defaced the website of the Jerusalem Post on Monday on the two-year anniversary of the U.S. government's assassination of Qassem Soleimani, the former leader of an arm of the Iranian armed forces. The digital intruders posted a photo of an Israeli nuclear facility being destroyed, along with a vague threat in English and Hebrew. The attack, while minimal and basic, appears to be the latest online incident in an ongoing tit-for-tat between Israel and Iran. AJ Vicens reports.

Cyber-hygiene for L.A. phones

Los Angeles is the latest jurisdiction to offer a mobile app meant to protect users from potentially nasty cyber-incidents. The LA Secure app — like similar projects in New York City and in Michigan — sends users an alert if they appear to be connecting to a “rogue” Wi-Fi network or clicking on a suspicious link. The app is backed by the City of Los Angeles government and the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority. Benjamin Freed has more at StateScoop.
