Hacking, AppSec, and Bug Bounty newsletter
2018-10-05 | Strong denials of Bloomberg’s big hack article, Bypassing web cache poisoning countermeasures, Holidays are good for phishing
Friday, October 5
Apple’s statement in response to Businesweek’s “big hack” article published yesterday. Others issued denials as well, including Amazon, Supermicro, and the Chinese Government, and a good point by SwiftOnSecurity that these are SEC regulated statements. The Grugq has some speculations. One person pontificated if Businessweek got their hands on a leaked early draft of the Sneakers 2 script and interpreted it as factual. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ . Regardless, more to come with this story, to be sure.
