In today's podcast we hear about possible hacks of NATO websites during last week's Alliance meetings. South Asia's scissors-and-paste cyber espionage campaign is surprisingly effective. ISIS and al Qaeda vie for jihadist mindshare, and Anonymous hits government sites in Zimbabwe and South Africa. A hacker/hacktivist dumps what he claims to be Kindle credentials, but analysts are dubious about their provenance. Eleanor Mac malware targets webcams. State Department emails remain under investigation. Chris Gerritz from Infocyte tells us about threat hunting, and Charles Clancy from the Hume Center at Virginia Tech shares concerns about data privacy. Plus, Pokémon Go seems to be catching 'em all—Ash Ketcham, call your office.
