Risky Business #420 -- What we don't know about Watergate 2.0

In Soviet Russia, shark jumps you!
29 Jul 2016 » Risky Business

On this week's show we're taking a look at the DNC leaks, but don't worry, we won't be getting bogged down in the same old angles. Instead, we're going to chat to Lorenzo Franceschi-Bicchierai from VICE motherboard about his experience in interviewing the Guccifer 2 persona.

Then we'll hear from Kevin Poulsen about what these latest developments mean for Wikileaks. It's a topic you're probably sick of hearing about this week, but stick with us, we've got some new angles, and they're relevant.

This week's sponsor interview is an absolute, certified, 24-carat cracker. Bromium is this week's sponsor and its CTO and co-founder, Simon Crosby, pops along to talk about his experience in dealing with the wrath of Tavis Ormandy. Tavis actually managed to dig a custom build of Bromium's software out of VirusTotal and find a really cool bug in it. But there's actually a fair bit more to that story and Simon fills us in.

Adam Boileau, as usual, joins us to discuss the week's security news headlines.

Oh, and do add Patrick and Adam on Twitter if that's your thing.
