Gerry and Steve have read the indictment of Russian nationals APT28 aka “Fancy Bear” aka Unit 26165 released by the DOJ. The techniques and extent of the attacks are covered and discussed. They turn their attention to an NPR investigation into techniques health insurers are employing to determine policy premiums. Thirdly, they touch on a ‘hot’ criminal email campaign going on right now dubbed ‘sextortion’. As always, they close the show with one cool thing.
