The novel coronavirus pandemic has changed our lives in so many ways, and it will be many months before things even begin to get back to normal. In hot zones in particular, most stores and other nonessential businesses will have to remain closed potentially through the end of the summer. The painful truth is that many of them will never reopen. In fact, even restaurants that have been allowed to remain open for takeout and delivery orders may end up closing down permanently because business for many of them has been so slow. We should all do our best to support local businesses whenever we're able to, of course.

As for personal impact, many of us are working from home or taking online classes from home for the first time. If that's the case, it's important to remember that when it comes to the COVID-19 outbreak, not everyone is in this together. Most people band together and look for ways to help each other, even if that just means having a video chat once in a while with someone who might be lonely. But some people are trying to use the pandemic as an opportunity to take advantage of others. That's especially true of nefarious hackers, which means you need to protect yourself.

Amazon is running a terrific deal for one day only on Friday that slashes the price of Webroot Internet Security Plus with Antivirus Protection Software to just $49.99. That's a 2-year subscription, mind you, and it covers you for up to three devices. That means you can protect every computer in your home for the next two years, and it'll only cost you $50! It's a fantastic deal, but it's only available until the end of the day.

Here are the key details from Amazon's product description:

  • BLOCKS VIRUSES & MALWARE: Cloud-based antivirus software from Webroot provides comprehensive internet security protection for your PC or Mac without slowing you down.
  • IDENTITY THEFT PREVENTION: Defends you against identity theft by protecting private information like usernames, passwords, account numbers, and more.

  • ADVANCED FEATURES: All the features of Webroot Antivirus software, plus a Password Manager that encrypts all your unique logins under one easy password.

ESET researchers have fingered a suspect in the San Francisco International hack, ZDNet writes. On the basis of the tactics, techniques, and procedures the security company observed, ESET attributes the attack to Energetic Bear, generally regarded as a threat group operating on behalf of Russia's GRU.

Recharge News reports that Portugal-based international power producer EDP has suffered a ransomware attack. According to BleepingComputer, the strain involved in the attack was RagnarLocker, and the attackers have demanded 1580 Bitcoin in ransom, the equivalent of $10.9 million or €9.9 million, to restore EDP's files. As is now customary, the ransomware operators say they've taken some 10 terabytes of company information, which they threaten to release if the victim is slow to pay. EDP is a major player in Europe's gas and electric sector, and the world's fourth-largest windpower producer.

The ransomware gang behind Nemty says it's ceasing operations, probably next week, when it will shutter its infrastructure, ZDNet reports. Unlike some other retirement announcements that turned out to be little more than rebrandings, this seems to be a genuine business failure. Nemty is a ransomware-as-a-service operation, and it simply couldn't compete with its rivals. The gang was only able to follow through once on a doxing threat, and security companies were able to field free decryptors relatively quickly.
