Microsoft: These Iranian attackers are targeting high-profile conference attendees

Microsoft says it has thwarted a series of cyberattacks by Iranian hacking group Phosphorus targeting attendees to two high-profile international conferences.

Microsoft’s Threat Intelligence Information Center (MSITC) says it’s detected and intercepted attempts by the nation-state group to harvest credentials of more than 100 “high-profile individuals” thought to be attending the upcoming Munich Security Conference, as well as the Think 20 (T20) Summit in Saudi Arabia.

According to Microsoft, the group posed as event organizers and sent spoofed invitations to the victims via email, with the intention of fooling them into giving up information.

SEE: Network security policy (TechRepublic Premium)

The emails were written in “near-perfect English” and were sent to former government officials, policy experts, academics and leaders from non-governmental organizations, Microsoft said.

It’s unclear whether any compromising information was given up to the group, although Microsoft said that event organizers had been made aware of the hacking attempt,

Tech conference calendar for 2020 and 2021: What’s cancelled, what’s not and what’s digital due to COVID-19

The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the novel coronavirus outbreak a global pandemic in March 2020, and its affects on public health and the global economy are unmistakable.

As of October 2020, data compiled by Johns Hopkins University on COVID-19 cases show over 41,000,000 cases and more than 1,120,000 deaths worldwide. In the US, officials have reported over 8,300,000 cases and over 220,000 deaths from the COVID-19 disease.

In response to the pandemic, governments around the world enacted travel bans, promoted and in some cases required social distancing measures, and passed stimulus packages designed to mitigate the public health and economic fallout from the outbreak. Despite these measures, COVID-19 has had a profoundly negative affect on the global economy and the tech sector, particularly when it comes to industry events. Whether as a result of travel bans, laws banning large gatherings, or an abundance of caution, tech conferences have been

Hilarity Ensues After Software Used By Virtual Paleontology Conference Bans The Word “Bone”

As an outsider you’d probably expect paleontologists to constantly use the word “bone”, and you’d be right. Day in, day out, they can’t stop mentioning bones.

This caused quite a lot of trouble at this year’s Society of Vertebrate Paleontology (SVP) conference, which was held as a virtual event this week due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Trying to keep things as normal as possible, they held Q&As with the speakers after their talks. Attendees only needed to submit a written question they want answered, and this is where the problem arose. The software banned several words the paleontologists needed to say, including but not limited to “bone”.

“The platform we’re using for the conference is apparently set up for business and industry meetings, not science, and apparently it came with a pre-packaged naughty-word-filter,” paleontologist at the University of Tennessee Stephanie Drumheller said of the issue in an
