Nation-state cyber campaigns: North Korean, Iranian, Russian, and unknown. Social media outages.
In today’s podcast, we hear about nations behaving badly (but from the point-of-view of cyberespionage they’re doing, unfortunately, well). The Lazarus Group is back robbing banks in Asia and Latin America. Russia’s Hades Group, known for Olympic Destroyer, is back, too. Gamaredon and Cozy Bear have returned, respectively pestering Ukraine and the US. Iran’s OilRig is upping its game with just-in-time malicious phishbait. And it’s not you: Facebook has been down. Malek Ben Salem from Accenture Labs on skills squatting with Amazon’s Alexa. Guest is Ronnie Tokazowski from Flashpoint on his work with the business email compromise working group.
