Secret Service Investigates 700 Cases of Covid Relief Fraud


Security News This Week: The Secret Service Is Investigating 700 Cases of Covid Relief Fraud

America’s electoral crisis reached a new low this week, as Donald Trump fired Christopher Krebs, the widely respected director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency. The reason? Krebs had dared point out, both through CISA and his personal Twitter account, that the election misinformation being spread by the president and his enablers was patently untrue. (This is also probably a good time to remember that Trump can still launch nuclear weapons any time he wants and no one can stop him.)

While Apple’s M1 chip has deservedly grabbed more attention this week, Microsoft is also moving deeper into the silicon mix. Its Pluton security processor will work as part of a system-on-chip for Intel, AMD, and Qualcomm hardware, adding a layer of Windows security and eliminating an increasingly popular avenue of attack for hackers. Elsewhere, ad-blocking company Ghostery is adding a layer of privacy to search, launching its own browser and search engine tool in the coming months that promise an ad-free, untracked existence online.
