In what is an unusual turn of events, a Chinese security firm has revealed details about malware that it says emanated from the portals of the US National Security Agency.
A blog post published by the security firm Flashpoint on 22 October appears to have been the starting point for the claim that a supposedly new ransomware gang Groove was a hoax and one designed to make both security firms and the media look foolish.
A ransomware gang known as Groove is claimed to have been an elaborate hoax meant to deceive the security sector and the media, with even a site backed by a CIA-funded threat intelligence firm falling for the spoof.
The CIA has invested US$1.6 million (A$2.2 million) in the company behind the secure messaging app Wickr, through its investment arm In-Q-Tel, the American website Motherboard reports, citing public disclosure records as a source.
A CIA-backed threat intelligence firm claims the operator of the DarkSide ransomware gang has lost control of its infrastructure after the malware was used to attack the Colonial Pipeline Company in the US which runs the country's biggest petrol pipeline.
In what appears to be a first, a CIA-bankrolled threat intelligence firm has set up a "tech news" outlet to spread its wares.
Most people in the infosec industry are adamant that attribution is the most difficult part of the process, but Romanian security firm Bitdefender's Daniel Clayton is an exception. The vice-president of global services and support said this was not really the case.
