The CyberWire Daily Podcast 4.8.16

#OpIsrael may play an HR role in the cyber underground. Law firms do security introspection post-Panama-Papers. Adware jumps from Windows to OS X. Adobe patches Flash Player. Tech industry observers foresee more layoffs in 2016. We share some of the aphoristic advice for business we heard yesterday at Cybersecurity Risk Management 360, and we wonder, what's the connection between the Mission Impossible theme music and hacktivist bad judgment?

In today's Daily Podcast we report on the results of yesterday's #OpIsrael—basically a fizzle, but a fizzle with the usual disturbing implications. Pirrit adware moves to OS X. Ransomware remains a low-risk, high-payoff cyber caper. We take a look at some industry news: good, bad, and middling. We talk to the University of Maryland's Jonathan Katz about fully homomorphic encryption, and we discuss Japan's cyber security landscape with our William Saito, special advisor to the prime minister of Japan.
