QT:{{”
“In 2019, a total of 113 state or municipal entities were impacted by ransomware. Knoxville is the 51st city to be hit in 2020, Callow said.

Last year, two Florida cities – Lake City and Riviera Beach – were both hit by ransomware attacks and decided to pay off the hackers…. ”

SKS Keyserver Network Under Attack

a good example of a hypothetical attack that now becomes real

“The number one use of OpenPGP today is to verify downloaded packages for Linux-based operating systems, usually using a software tool called GnuPG. If someone were to poison a vendor’s public certificate and upload it to the keyserver network, the next time a system administrator refreshed their keyring from the keyserver network the vendor’s now-poisoned certificate would be downloaded. At that point upgrades become impossible because the authenticity of downloaded packages cannot be verified. Even downloading the vendor’s certificate and re-importing it would be of no use, because GnuPG would choke trying to import the new certificate. It is not hard to imagine how motivated adversaries could employ this against a Linux-based computer network.”
