Ukraine grid hack investigation. Malware descriptions: Fysbis, Corkow. Ransomware news. UK police vs. Crackas.

Show Notes

In today's podcast, we hear an update on Ukraine's investigation of December's power grid hack. There's news about banking malware and currency trading platform hacks, and hospitals are hit with ransomware. (Good news: Emsisoft has cracked the encryption in two common ransomware strains.) Sympathizers of the Crackas with Attitude don't like last week's arrest. A French teen is arrested in connection with a disruption-as-a-service scheme. And we hear from the University of Maryland's Jonathan Katz on Bitcoin and how it works.
