IoT DDoS hurricane forming? Sofacy exploits patched Flash bug. NotPetya continues to impose costs. Snooping with mobile app ads.

Show Notes

In today's podcast we hear that an IoT botnet hurricane may be forming among IP cameras. (IP cameras are to DDoS what the West African coast is to Atlantic tropical depressions.) Sofacy rushes to exploit a patched Flash bug in a use-it-or-lose-it espionage race. Want to spy on someone? Go buy an ad. Cisco patches the wi-fi KRACK. NotPetya's still costing manufacturers and their insurers a lot of money. MalwareTech, a.k.a. Emily Wilson from Terbium Labs responding to post-Equifax breach credit agency claims that they can scan the Dark Web. Michael Sutton, CISO at Zscaler on zero-day hoarding. Marcus Hutchins, gets to take off that GPS and stay out late, since the judge decided his pre-trial behavior has been pretty good.
