Reverse engineering Equation Group attack tools (and putting them to bad use). Hacking, jamming, and airstrikes. Taking down coordinated inauthenticity. How big is the dark web?

Show Notes

Buckeye seems to have reengineered some of Uncle Sam’s cyber tools, and they did it without, apparently, help from the ShadowBrokers. More on airstrikes as retaliation for hacking, with a brief excursus on electronic warfare. Notes on malicious commitment as one of the hazards of open source software development. How big is the dark web? Big enough, but maybe not as big as everyone thinks. And beware of bogus Avengers Endgame sites. David Dufour from Webroot with thoughts on HTTPS security concerns. Guest is Michael Figueroa from the Advance Cyber Security Center on their recent report identifying a need for a board-level cyber risk management standard.
