    LABOR Day revellers have been warned to be on the lookout for cybercriminals using the holiday to launch a ransomware attack. The FBI and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) have issued a joint warning ahead of the long weekend. 3Cybercriminals often use a long weekend to launch a ransomware attackCredit: Getty 3Hackers often strike during a holiday time as it usually takes longer to detect as everyone is off from workCredit: Getty Cybercriminals can strike at any time but a holiday period is particularly attractive for the hackers as it usually takes longer to detect with everyone off enjoying themselves. “Generally speaking, the threat actors deploy their ransomware when there is less likelihood of people being around to start pulling plugs,” Brett Callow, threat analyst at antivirus company Emsisoft, told Wired. “The less chance of the attack being detected and interrupted.” Even if it is detected early it is usually harder to contact those in charge of dealing with the situation as they are also off getting into the party spirit. “Intuitively, it makes sense that defenders may...

    Wide open spaces like national parks and beaches continue to be popular for long holiday weekend travel.Thomas Barwick | Stone | Getty Images A surge in Covid-19 infections due to the delta variant may be slowing the rebound from the pandemic, but Labor Day travelers looking for a last summer hurrah — and with the shadow of possible future lockdowns on their minds — are eager to hit the road. That's despite ongoing concerns about Covid-19 and related restrictions such as destination and venue masking and vaccination requirements, recent studies have shown. To that point, 75% of people queried by travel site The Vacationer and SurveyMonkey on Aug. 1 said coronavirus remained a "slight" or "large" concern, according to co-founder Eric Jones. Still, Jones said he thinks Labor Day travel is up "because people want to make sure they get something in." "There is talk about new quarantine rules or lockdowns … so some are worried they're not going to get to travel again," added Jones, noting that in an earlier survey this summer. The Vacationer found 25% of Americans...

    A top White House official on Thursday underlined preparations the Biden administration is taking for any potential cyberattacks over the upcoming Labor Day weekend, urging companies to be on alert against hackers.  Anne Neuberger, the deputy national security advisor for cyber and emerging technology, told reporters at the White House that both the FBI and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) were monitoring for cybersecurity concerns, but stressed that there were no specific threats on the radar. “We have no specific threat information or information regarding attacks this weekend, but what we do have is history, and in the past over holiday weekends, attackers have sometimes focused on security operation centers that may be understaffed, or a sense that there are fewer key personnel on duty as they may be on vacation,” Neuberger said.  “Indeed, a long weekend can sometimes make attackers feel they have extra time to navigate in before they are detected,” she said. “So as the long weekend comes, we want to raise awareness, and this need for awareness is particularly for critical infrastructure owners and...
    Ahead of Labor Day weekend, the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security's cyber arm urged companies and organizations to remain on alert for ransomware attacks. The alert follows a string of high-profile cyber incidents landing on holidays. In a joint advisory, the FBI and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) said they "observed an increase in highly impactful ransomware attacks occurring on holidays and weekends — when offices are normally closed — in the United States, as recently as the Fourth of July holiday in 2021." Deputy National Security Advisor Anne Neuberger told reporters Thursday that while the White House does not have specific evidence of an upcoming attack this weekend, hackers often target companies over holiday weekends when security operations centers may be ill-equipped to handle such threats.  "To be clear, we have no specific threat information or information regarding attacks this weekend," Neuberger said. "But what we do have is history."  Earlier this year, an affiliate of the "REvil" cyber gang targeted software company Kaseya at the start of the July 4 holiday weekend, leading...
