Risky Business #271 -- All your funnycats R belong 2 APT1
On this week's show we're chatting with Mandiant's Managing Director of Threat Intelligence, Dan McWhorter, about that company's report into Chinese cyber espionage activity.
Mandiant dropped the report last week and it's caused quite a stir, even eliciting a response from the Whitehouse and Chinese officials.
That's an interesting conversation and it's after the news.
This week's show is brought to you by Tenable Network Security, makers of fine vulnerability scanning and SIEM software. Tenable's product manager and all-round nice guy Jack Daniel will be along in this week's sponsor interview to discuss some other aspects of this APT1 issue.
Like, for example, how the attackers were using executable trojans embedded in zip files and still managed to own half the Western world's intellectual property. That's this week's sponsor interview -- an interesting blend of hilarious and depressing.
Adam Boileau, as always, drops in for a chat about this week's news. You can find links to the articles discussed in this week's show notes.
