Eight years after he hacked LinkedIn and Dropbox, Yevgeniy Nikulin is found guilty. Google makes a step in the right direction on stalkerware. And the Democratic National Committee is concerned about TikTok, too. This is CyberScoop for Monday, July 13.

A major cybercrime case wraps up

A U.S. jury has found an accused Russian hacker guilty on charges that he breached the networks of LinkedIn and Formspring in 2012 and stole credentials belonging to more than 100 million Americans. Yevgeniy Nikulin was found guilty after just hours of deliberation, roughly eight years after he first infiltrated the U.S. social media companies in a successful attempt to steal data about American web users. The verdict caps years of courtroom theatrics over his extradition, mental status and international espionage. Jeff Stone explains.

Google bans stalkerware ads

Google will no longer allow advertisements or marketing that promote spyware and surveillance technology used for intimate partner surveillance. The change, announced this month, marks an important move for stalkerware victims and their advocates because, while Google has taken steps to ban such applications in its app market, developers still can always place ads that direct users to third-party sources. Still, many stalkerware apps masquerade as parental monitoring tools, and Google still plans to allow advertisements for products or services designed to help parents monitor their children. Shannon Vavra is on the case.

DNC still doesn’t like TikTok

The Democratic National Committee reiterated a security warning to campaigns that their staffers shouldn’t use video-sharing app TikTok on personal devices. The DNC cited TikTok’s data sharing policies as a concern amid ongoing questions about whether the Chinese government could compel the company to provide it with sensitive user information. TikTok has consistently denied any wrongdoing. Sean Lyngaas has the bulletin.

A plan to expand security skills

Virginia Tech says it will offer online coding and cybersecurity bootcamps to prepare students and experienced professionals for new jobs in the tech industry. In partnership with Fullstack Academy, a software engineering and coding education company, the 26-week bootcamps are designed to teach participants technical skills to prepare them for emerging coding and cybersecurity jobs in Virginia’s workforce. The cybersecurity industry in the Virginia and Washington, D.C., area is one of the largest in the country, with nearly 115,000 open cybersecurity positions, according to Virginia Tech.
