Third is the news related to LockBit ransomware group that is suspected to be behind the attack of Italy’s Tax Agency L’Angenzia Delle Entrate.

National Cybersecurity Agency of Italy has released an update that they are busy investigating the incident and suspect a foreign nation’s hand in the spread of the LockBit ransomware to their tax agency’s computer network.

Fourth is the news related to Switzerland-based company FileWave, a company that offers multi-platform Mobile Device Management (MDM) platform.
