This week's trending cybercrime events include breaches at the NBA's Milwaukee Bucks and the furry site "Fur Affinity," a two-year cyber-espionage campaign against Swiss military contractor Ruag, payment card skimmers found at Walmart, and DDoS-for-hire services found on the online marketplace Fiverr. Researchers discussed several new types of malware including a stealthy new malware dubbed "Furtim," a new variant of Cerber ransomware, and changes to DMA Locker – which is being upgraded for a potential "massive" distribution. On the legal front, the transfer of data between the U.S. and the EU continues to be questioned in court, Wells Fargo was ordered to pay a $1.1 million fine related to employee data theft, another W-2-related breach lawsuit was filed, and various individuals were arrested and cybercriminal groups disrupted. Also, people continue to get in trouble by hacking road signs.
