Show Notes

In today's podcast we hear about how the four C's have come together: clouds, crooks, cheats, and crypotcurrencies. Locky continues to circulate in evolved forms. WikiLeaks dumps some curious alleged liaisonware documents from Vault7. Russian sources report that FSB officers facing treason charges in Moscow may have given up some connected hackers to the Americans. The FBI makes an arrest in the OPM breach. The Daily Stormer is way offline, but ISIS and its parasitic slave-trading gangs are decidedly online. Dale Drew from Level 3 Communications with some threat intelligence on phishing and malware. Guest is Nicole Eagan, CEO of Darktrace. And another consequence of NotPetya seems to be a pet food shortage.
