Bluepurple - Mid-week for week ending August 29th
Kick the door in..
Welcome to the substack from the blueteamsec subreddit.
Busy week thus far on the subreddit causing curation consternation. As a result I’ve gone for another mid-week release due to a growing pipeline of rich content for Sunday.
I have a tendency at times to use cliché references to scenes from movies from the 80s and 90s as analogies with those I work with very closely - fun I know.
Anyway, there is scene in The Untouchables where Sean Connery’s character says it isn’t the problem finding it (the criminal enterprise) it is who wants to cross Capone. The scene continues to where Sean tells Kevin if he walks through the door he’s walking into a world of trouble and there is no turning back asking Kevin if he is sure.
This situation feels very reminiscent of ransomware at the moment - we really do know where they are but yet appear publicly at least hesitant to kick the door in as nations.
