Big tech firms have a point to make, when it comes to the effects of antitrust legislation on privacy and security. A Belarus group expands the playbook for hacktivists. The dust settles around Trellix. This is CyberScoop for January 25.

Competition, security, or both?

Apple and Google last week derided a piece of antitrust legislation moving through the Senate for allegedly posing a threat to security and privacy for users. Technical experts say the companies' warnings are hard to prove, but they're also grounded in some truth. Experts across civil society, academic and industry agree that provisions in the bill — like allowing sideloading — could potentially make users less safe. But the big problem? There's no privacy law informing what exactly the bill is trying to protect. That makes it harder for lawmakers to have a meaningful discussion about the intersection of competition and privacy. “We haven’t thought a lot about the potential tradeoffs between privacy and competition in the U.S.,” said Erika Douglas, an assistant professor at Temple University’s Beasley School of Law. “I don’t think that we’ve really decided if privacy comes at the cost of competition that we’re comfortable with that tradeoff, or vice versa.” Tonya Riley talks to the experts.

Hacktivists target Belarusian Railways to slow Russian troop movements, make statement

The Belarus Cyber Partisans — a group of self-taught hacktivists working with disaffected members of the Belarusian security forces to expose government corruption — announced Monday they'd hacked Belarusian Railways. They claimed to have encrypted some of the railways' servers, databases and workstations and demanded the release of 50 political prisoners and for any Russian military assets to be removed from Belarus, a key Russian ally. The hack comes as a potential Russian invasion of Ukraine looms, with Belarus being a key artery for Russian military equipment. AJ Vicens reports.

Arrival of Trellix shakes up big cyber brands

Now that the private equity firm STG has completed a merger of FireEye and McAfee Enterprise, the industry has a new heavyweight brand: Trellix. The McAfee name lives on, but as a consumer-facing business. So does some of FireEye’s history, as Mandiant continues under its former parent’s stock listing. The FireEye name itself? You can probably say goodbye to it. Joe Warminsky breaks it down.
