Influence operations and elections, and the difficulty of doing anything about them. Dynamite phishing investigation. Snake hisses at Macs. Fatboy at your (criminal) service.

Show Notes

In today's podcast we hear about elections and election influence operations in Europe, and the difficulty of taming Fancy Bear. Some weekend reading. The Google Docs worm and dynamite phishing incident takes an odd (but implausible) turn. Snake malware seems poised to strike at Mac users. We welcome Johannes Ulrich from SANS and the Internet Stormcenter Podcast. Allan Liska outlines his book on ransomware. And there's a new product in the crimeware-as-a-service souk: it's called "Fatboy," it speaks Russian, and yes, it's ransomware.
