Twitter and two-factor authentication. Privacy concerns. The US Senate Intelligence Committee reports on Russian troll farms. Turla is back with some new tricks.

Show Notes

Twitter says it’s sorry is anything might have inadvertently happened with users’ email addresses and phone numbers, and that it’s taking steps to stop whatever might have happened from happening again. If anything actually happened. Other concerns about privacy surface elsewhere. The US Senate Intelligence Committee issues its report on influence operations in the 2016 elections. Kaspersky ties a sophisticated malware campaign to Turla. Ben Yelin from UMD CHHS on a DARPA-inspired program exploring the possibility of using predictive technology to identify dangerous individuals. Guest is Neill Sciarrone from Trinity Cyber, discussing her career and the importance of attracting women to cyber. [Correction: this section initially misidentified the proposed predictive program as belonging to DARPA. It is not a DARPA program, but rather a proposal intended for a projected new agency that would be called "HARPA," the Health Advanced Research Projects Agency.]
