The FBI noted a trend of dual ransomware attacks conducted in close proximity to one another. In early 2022, multiple ransomware groups increased use of custom data theft, wiper tools, and malware to pressure victims to negotiate.

Looked at the hive this morning and they were having trouble removing the deceased due to a puddle at their entrance. I decided since I've been doing roof repair this past week to build a roof for the bees.

It fits the spacing of the screws in the china-hives, which is 2 inches. I had it at the top of the deep (3rd photo) at first but when I looked at the photos it seemed too high so I moved it to the bottom. Sealed with beeswax along the top edge.

It attaches to to the existing screw spacing that is common with many of these hives that are manufactured in China. It extends beyond the supports the same amount as the telescoping outer cover extends beyond the outside of the hive boxes to maintain a similar visual appeal. A bee is inspecting the joint where the roof meets the hive box.

What I most enjoy* about the #Hive API is not that you only get a 1h token and refreshing it is annoying, nor that it'll just randomly give you a 502 sometimes, but that the information you want is 4 levels down in a data structure and each one of those levels can sometimes be empty whilst still giving a 200 response.

Which means you end up with a huge list of `if x is nil` checks as you slowly descend into the realms of madness and I hate it I HATE IT IHATEIT.

Our original #hive has made what we think is a queen cell. 🤔😆 It was not there when we did hive inspections and introduced a frame of brood from the swarm hive. Interestingly, this creation is not on that frame! The plot thickens. Still a mystery. We were thinking, timing wise, that this queen cell must be very close to hatching between today and tomorrow as it wasn't there on Labor Day. #beekeeping #bees

Did #beehive inspections today. Our original #hive is still in stasis - a lot of #honey, but very little brood, & are only working on the original 5 drawn out frames that came with the #nuc we purchased in spring. There must be a new #virginqueen in the hive because we saw a few larva. We cannot figure out why she hasn't laid a bunch of brood, unless she died recently. Stumped.

In contrast, our swarm hive is outta control & made burr comb on the underside of the queen excluder!😂 #Beekeeping /1

And today I remembered I’m also still on #Hive! I checked: yes, it’s alive. I follow exactly one (1) person, @scalzi, who hasn’t posted over there for eight months WHICH IS ACTUALLY a lot more than I ever did there, shame on me.

Thus, for Hive, all in all, take the term “alive” with a grain of salt.

So this odd round hives and join aches have started up since I took the shingle vaccine 3 weeks ago. Dr said 100% not from vaccine. So what can it be. I am going to urgent care today because one of my fingers, and jow are bothering me this morning. #ArtistLife #Health #hive #joints

I feel that the hostility that people are showing to the platform and to those who use it because "it's cool to dump on #Meta" are actually going to be what hinders people from coming over from other platforms when they realize it's just not working for them.

It's the reason why Black folks don't want to come here and rely on #Threads, #Spill, #Hive, #Bluesky, or even #Twitter still.

Honestly, if you aren't going to use it, don't.

That's it.

No need to harp on it.

"According to the indictment obtained in the District of New Jersey, from at least as early as 2020, Mikhail Pavlovich Matveev, aka Wazawaka, aka m1x, aka Boriselcin, aka Uhodiransomwar, allegedly participated in conspiracies to deploy three ransomware variants. These variants are known as LockBit, Babuk, and Hive, and Matveev transmitted ransom demands in connection with each."

I‘m also at other places like #Hive, which, erm… got a very rocky start & #MyCafe which has a lot of potentials, especially with the Cafés (=groups), but needs lots more users.

Viele hatten den Erfolg der Aktion gegen #Hive ja in Frage gestellt, weil es keine Festnahmen gab.Ich auch. Weil Hardware schnell ersetzt ist und die kriminelle Energie ja bleibt. Aber die Strategie sei gewesen, bewusst erst die Reputation zu zerstören. "Die kriegen im Darknet keinen Fuß mehr auf den Boden", sagte Lorch. "Da herrscht Zeter und Mordio" (er liest immer noch mit, inzwischen triumphierend). Schließlich hat Hive die Behörden ein halbes Jahr lang in der eigenen Kommunikation gehabt.

This week's edition of SOC Goulash, our Weekend Wrap-Up of infosec news, is live and hot off the press!

Building on last week's flagging of the increase in abuse of #Malvertising, researchers have observed it being abused to deliver #ASyncRAT and #xworm payloads, as well as to harvest master passwords for Password Manager solutions like #Bitwarden and #1Password.

#Hive ransomware have had their infrastructure seized in a multi-national law enforcement operation. The authorities lurked in their infrastructure for six months, gathering communications & information on their members and stealing 1,300 decryption keys that enabled them to avert ~$130 million in potential ransom payments.

North Korea's crypto-hunting actors have been agile in adopting emerging tradecraft and developing novel payloads. With $1 billion worth of funds brought into the hermit kingdom in 2022, orgs in the #cryptocurrency and #DeFi space will need to be on guard coming into 2023.

#PlugX malware continues to be developed, with new variants spotted in the wild capable of spreading via USB, upgrading old installations, and pilfering documents from hosed computers.

#vulnerabilities in the Realtek SDK have been exploited nearly 130 million times between August and December last year alone by botnets seeking to grow their numbers.

Security researchers Horizon3 intend to release a PoC #exploit for CVSS 9.8 RCE vulnerabilities in VMWare's vRealize Log Insight product this week - make sure you're patched!

For our paid subscribers, we've got some additional articles on:
1. The adoption of OneNote for payload delivery, and tips for analysis;
2. An overview of CVE-2022-34689, a critical Windows vulnerability that could be abused to intercept & decrypt encrypted communications or spoof code-signing of malicious executables;
3. A vulnerability/not-vulnerability in #KeePass, with no patch and an unknown scope of impact, allowing attackers to dump plaintext credentials from the Password Manager.

As always, there's a tonne of additional goodies to be found in the newsletter that I couldn't cover here, so check it out here:

Law enforcement can take a well-deserved victory lap about #Hive #ransomware gang being disrupted, but then back to work, please.

This month, I've noted at least 7 U.S. healthcare entities claimed as new victims by 5 different groups. And that doesn't include at least another 5 ransomware incidents where we do not yet have attribution and an uncertain number of other reports where it's not clear whether it was ransomware or not because the entities' notifications are too damned vague.
