Google has swiftly cleaned up SonicSpy, but the malware is still circulating outside the Play store. Indian police make four arrests for HBO hacking, but none of them are related to "Mr. Smith." Marcus Hutchins is out on bail and preparing for an October trial. DJI drones get a peacemaking makeover. Justin Harvey from Accenture on prepping for destructive attacks. Jeff Schumann CEO of Wiretap on vulnerabilities in messaging technologies like Slack and Yammer. And one weird trick to recognizing that a call is a help desk scam. Ready? It's this: they called you.
