Show Notes

In today's podcast we hear about Russian hackers going after New York Times reporters (the FBI is investigating). Exploits in the Shadow Brokers' teaser are "test-driven" in the wild. Some of them may affect Huawei products. The Goznym banking Trojan moves from Poland to Germany. British universities are targeted by ransomware. Researchers give victims of Wildfire ransomware some relief in the form of a decryptor. Gaming sites come under attack. We've all heard of the cloud, but Accenture's Malek Ben Salem tells about the coming fog. There's a new push to restrict encryption in the EU. And a fourth-grade steely-eyed missileman arises in Texas.
