A technology executive pitches an innovative approach to stop the spread of false, misleading and harmful posts online. The FBI warns that an Iranian hacking group is back on the prowl. And the Ukraine war means intelligence sharing is more important than ever. This is CyberScoop for Oct. 21.

Big idea for fighting disinformation

Disinformation is flooding online platforms at such a rate that it’s simply impossible to prevent every harmful post from spreading quickly online and resulting in real world consequences. The problem is so complex that it requires social media platforms, government officials and other stakeholders to combine efforts, Graphika CEO John Kelly told CyberScoop in an interview Thursday. That’s why his social media monitoring firm is developing a blueprint for what it calls a software-based multistakeholder threat center. Suzanne Smalley has the story.

The return of Emennet Pasargad

An Iranian hacking group accused of attempting to interfere in the 2020 presidential election, and attacking an unnamed U.S. organization in early 2022, could once again be looking to infiltrate American targets, the FBI warned in a notice late Thursday. The group identified as Emennet Pasargad has been using “false-flag campaigns under the guise of multiple personas” to target Israeli organizations in recent years and carry out hack-and-leak operations, the bureau said. AJ Vicens reports.

Cybercom's quest for deeper threat intel-sharing

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine — and the evolving technology-driven conflict landscape globally — render threat intelligence sharing between the U.S. government internally and with external organizations more vital than ever before, according to Col. Candice Frost, commander of U.S. Cyber Command’s Joint Intelligence Operations Center. “The Department of Defense is not the Department of Offense — its defense,” Frost said Thursday at CyberScoop’s CyberTalks event in Washington. “And so, as we as a command must work to ensure that our networks are defended totally within the DOD, but also within our nation itself, we have to share information.” Brandi Vincent has more in DefenseScoop.

CISA's Microsoft 365 security guidance
