One piece of good news 👍:

UK police, along with 39 other law enforcement agencies (inc. An Garda Síochána 👍) and private sector cyber security industry partners, took down one of the world's largest Phishing-as-a-Service platforms LabHost. The platform was known to host up to 40,000 phishing sites and was responsible for the theft of 480,000 credit card numbers, 64,000 Pin numbers and 1 million passwords. 37 suspects are under arrest and notifications are starting to be sent to users of the platform (be nervous when the doorbell rings 🤣)

One final note:

UnitedHealth, owners of Change Healthcare, reported that the ransomware attack of its subsidiary had so far cost $872 million in costs with the total expected to exceed $1 BILLION. Change Healthcare was the organisation, previous reported on, that was subject to a $22 million exit scam (rug pull) after it is believed it paid a ransom only for the data to be transferred to another ransomware gang after the hacker didn't receive their cut
