A milestone for a new State Department office that has been years in the making. If you use Spring, we hope you've heard of Spring4Shell by now. And a London court receives teenage Lapsus$ suspects. This is CyberScoop for April 4.

State cyber bureau debuts

The State Department launched its Bureau of Cyberspace and Digital Policy on Monday. It's the latest step in a years-long saga that began when the Trump administration phased out the existing cyber office at Foggy Bottom, and Congress and both the Trump and Biden administrations have jousted over the subject ever since. Eventually a Senate-confirmed ambassador-at-large will lead the bureau according to the State Department, but until then, Jennifer Bachus is serving as principal deputy assistant secretary in charge. Joe Warminsky has the news.

Java coding framework addresses critical bug

The managers of the open-source Spring framework are urging users to update to the latest version after a critical vulnerability was publicized last week. Spring, widely used to code web applications in the Java language, had a bug that could allow attackers to hijack apps and execute malicious code remotely on affected computers. Researchers are calling it "Spring4Shell" in a nod to a different vulnerability discovered in December in the popular Log4j logging software for websites. Joe has this one, too.

UK charges in Lapsus$ case

British law enforcement has charged two teenagers in trying to shut down the Lapsus$ cybercrime gang, which has claimed a string of high-profile intrusions into the networks of major corporations this year. An unidentified 16-year-old and a 17-year-old appeared in a London court Friday to face charges of illegal access to data, and at least one count of fraud. In March, police arrested seven people aged 16 to 21 in the case. AJ Vicens has the story.
