The Security box, podcast 124: Ransomware costs are now at 1 billion dollars

Hello everyone,

Welcome too the Security Box. I want to take this opportunity and thank each and every one of you for listening. This is the final Security Box for the year and it runs just a little over 3 hours.

If you want to be listed as someone who is running the program, send me a note, and we’ll be in touch on details. You’ll be listed on TSB’s page of Email Host Security.

I’d like to thank Nick Jackson from Santa Barbara for coming on as a participant of the show. I hope he’ll be on more podcasts.

Please make sure you check out my profile on club house and subscribe to the Jared Rimer Network to learn about rooms we will be cobering.

We’ll see you January 4th for our next program!

For those who don’t have RSS, here is the 166mb file for you to have.

Now, here are the show notes.

Welcome to the Security box, podcast 124. On this podcast, we’ve got news coming out of Security Now about another root Certificate company that is no more. We’ve got news and notes from around the landscape, and Ransomware payments have hit at least a billion dollars. All this, including questions, comments and other miscellanious activity on today’s show.

Trust Core

Security Now podcast 900 is full of questions. One of which for this podcast talks about another trust certificate authority that isn’t. The apparent company is called Trust Core. This reminds me of the Hong Kong post office and why they were a trusted certificate authority. We’ve never covered certificate authorities and maybe we need to. Let’s just say that they intercepted traffic and installed malware.

EUFY not telling the truth

I don’t have any articles, but SN 900 covered this and I saw a notice from Malware Bytes. They say that footage from their cameras are not send to the cloud, but an Ars Technica article mentioned by Stieve indicates otherwise. The company Anker (not to be confused with Anchor) says this is not the case.

Ransomware costing a billion dollars

Ransomware costs top $1 billion as White House inks new threat-sharing initiative is a Cyberscoop article and our main topic. If we can share intelligence, maybe we can better defend against these problems and maybe Ransomware can be slowed down. We’ll see how it goes.

That completes the notes! I hope each and every one of you has a happy holiday season as the JRN recharges our batteries and we’ll be back next year!

If there are any other podcasts, they’ll go under the tech podcast brand, I’ve got a webinar that I missed most of, so will be catching that.

In the meantime, it’ll be time to post articles and much more during our break, so enjoy the posts, register and comment, and thanks so much!
