In today’s podcast we hear that Shamoon’s Trojan servant seems to have got a new comms channel. Sabre discloses possible breach: hospitality and travel sectors affected. Some more things to worry about: ultrasonic beaconing, SIM card fraud, VPN privilege escalation, and another bad app in the PlayStore. (But you can fix all these.) Governments look to social media restrictions to control hate speech and fake news. (Social media providers look to human curation and the blockchain for help.) Level 3’s Dale Drew describes the evolution they’re seeing in botnets. Tripwire’s Craig Young shares his research on hacking smart TVs. Cyberespionage and influence updates, from Washington to Seoul.
