On this week’s show Patrick Gray and Adam Boileau discuss the week’s security news, including:

  • A spate of ransomware attacks on European energy and transport
  • Russian authorities extend cybercrime crackdown
  • Irritating influencers arrested for laundering 2016 Bitfinex hack proceeds
  • IRS abandons ID.me trial
  • Microsoft disables macros by default, disables MSIX protocol handler
  • Much, much more

This week’s show is brought to you by ExtraHop.

Extrahop’s Ted Driggs is this week’s sponsor guest – he was on the show about a year ago talking about how we should really start thinking about putting together software bills of behaviours as well as bills of material. Ted is back to tell us how that effort is progressing. As you’ll hear, a lot of the behavioural data on software already exists, but it’s being hoarded by different vendors.
