Russia's cyber long game, SWIFT fraud, hack physics (not metaphors), and more.

Show Notes

In today's podcast we hear about a successful business email compromise caper, and some more SWIFT fraud. Vanya the RIPPER is on the lam from Thai police. iMessaging issues surface. Cerber ransomware is being spread by Word documents. Adobe's hot fix swats a Cold Fusion bug. Rowhammer attacks are shown to be a real possibility. Election hacking and influence operations. Centrify's Corey Williams weighs in on the Sage Software data breach, and Jonathan Katz from the University of Maryland explains an iMessage vulnerability. And a tip: if you look good for your mugshot, you won't be tempted to Facebook a more flattering one to the authorities.
