In today's podcast we hear about a backdoor Kryptowire has found preinstalled in some Android phones. We speak with Ryan Johnson, the researcher who discovered the vulnerability. The Locky ransomware takes a run at US Army Cyber Command. CrySis ransomware is decrypted. SpamTorte 2.0 is out, and it's thinking big. A Trojan may be implicated in the Tesco fraud campaign, and it may have more banks in its crosshairs.
