Risky Business #629 -- Kaseya 0day was utter trash

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

  • Our take on the REvil attack against Kaseya customers
  • Microsoft’s print spooler bug is a real worry
  • Reports the RNC breached by Russia’s SVR
  • NSA snaps GRU brute forcing efforts
  • Much, much more

This week’s show is brought to you by Material Security, a very interesting startup that has a completely different take on what email security actually is. Material’s co-founder Ryan Noon will be along in this week’s sponsor interview to talk about the cool stuff they’re doing on the analytics side.
