Show Notes

In today’s podcast, we hear that FireEye has called out Iran “with moderate confidence” for a long-running DNS-hijacking campaign. Smart doorbells may not be smart enough for their users’ comfort, if reports of video sharing are to be credited. Crooks are finding Fuze cards as handy as good-guy consumers do. Poland makes two arrests in an espionage case linked to Huawei. And the Russian media are happy to offer sympathy to NSA for some alleged security lapses at Fort Meade. Craig Williams from Cisco Talos with details on Persian Stalker targeting secure messaging apps. Guest is Rajiv Dholakia from Nok Nok Labs on the security pros and cons of biometrics.
