Research Saturday launches tomorrow.
The CyberWire is pleased to announce that a new regular feature, our Research Saturday podcast, will launch tomorrow. Every week we'll feature research into cyber threats, vulnerabilities, and mitigations—any topics relevant to operating safely and securely in cyberspace. In our inaugural edition we speak with Deepen Desai from ZScaler about their research into Cobian RAT. There's no justice, but in this case that may not be entirely a bad thing: the RAT has a backdoor, allowing the original author to gain access and control over all of the installations in the wild. So the bad guys who go for this free tool are being played by the alpha bad guy.
