Court hands over another win for data scrapers

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday reaffirmed a 2019 ruling that LinkedIn could not cite federal hacking laws to ban competitor hiQ Labs from scraping publicly available data on its platform. The court reconsidered the case on remand from the Supreme Court after it issued its ruling in another landmark hacking case. Basically, the appellate court determined that you can't breach publicly available information, making hacking laws moot. “We’re disappointed, but this was a preliminary ruling and the case is far from over,” LinkedIn wrote in a statement to CyberScoop.

Cyber Command shares $236 million wish list with Congress

U.S Cyber Command shared its unfunded priorities with Congress this week and the $236 million wish list includes $168 million to support its Cyber Mission Force, which leads offensive and defensive cyber-operations. The 6,200-member group includes 133 teams that are tasked with defending Defense Department networks and critical infrastructure from attack. The Pentagon asked Congress for a $773 billion budget for this fiscal year, but the $236 million in unfunded priorities from Cyber Command were left out of that tally. Suzanne Smalley has the story.

Double-check that job offer

North Korean state-backed hackers are phishing cryptocurrency company employees in order to gain access to systems that allow them to make fraudulent trades, according to an advisory Monday from the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, the FBI and Treasury Department. The technique begins with a large number of email messages that offer a better job to the employees. The warning follows updated sanctions last week against the same hackers — known as the Lazarus Group — for links to a recent $650 million theft from the Ronin Bridge connecting the popular Axie Infinity video game with the Ethereum blockchain. Tonya has the details.
