Why do inspired cells need electronic command and control? (It seems they may not—meeting face-to-face may be all that's required.) The FBI adds Syrian Electronic Army operators to its Most Wanted list. Infrastructure hacks return to the news as indictments of Iranian operators are expected today—water utilities move front and center ahead of electrical power grids. The FBI may be unlocking the San Beranardino jihadist's county-issued iPhone with some NAND mirroring (and a little help from the Bureau's friends at Cellebrite). The University of Maryland's Ben Yelin talks with us about privacy rights in cyberspace.
In today's Daily Podcast we discuss why ISIS inspiration seems to obviate the need for command-and-control. The US indicts seven Iranians for the Rye dam hack and DDoS against financial institutions. Concerns about the security of water utilities grow. ESET finds some new malware delivered by USB drive. We talk with the University of Maryland's Ben Yelin about rights to privacy in cyberspace.
