A. Today’s MSSP Alerts

1. Robinhood Investor Accounts Hacked: Hackers infiltrated nearly 2,000 accounts of fintech startup Robinhood Markets and siphoned off customer funds, Bloomberg News and Reuters reported.

2. Threat Response: ThreatQuotient's ThreatQ platform now integrates with Sixgill Darkfeed, a predictive feed of actionable indicators of compromise (IOCs). The result: Organizations can "accelerate and automate decision-making," the companies say.

3. Security Information and Event Management (SIEM): Rapid7 has launched Enhanced Endpoint Telemetry (EET) within InsightIDR, the company’s SIEM solution.
