Show Notes

In today’s podcast we take a quick look back at the US midterm elections, and at what did and didn’t happen. Is Iran looking at waging cyber-enabled economic warfare? If you use Apache Struts, update now to avoid remote code execution. A spyware-delivering app is used to smish Spanish-speaking users of the Play Store. And, once again, people really seem to think that Elon Musk will return them their Bitcoin donations tenfold. (Enough people to make crime pay, anyway.) Justin Harvey from Accenture on notification laws and incident response. Guest is Christian Lees from InfoArmor with thoughts on what they’re seeing trafficked on the dark web.
