In this podcast Patrick Gray talks to Tom Uren about security researcher Jon DiMaggio infiltrating the LockBit ransomware group. DiMaggio’s report shows that there are numerous disruption operations.

They also cover a new Ukrainian report about Russia’s combined cyber, conventional and military operations. It doesn’t look like the Russians are deftly coordinating these different attacks to maximum effect so much as using a kitchen sink approach.

Finally, they look at a French general’s warning to other European countries that the US might use Cyber Command hunt forward operations as an intelligence gathering operation. We don’t think this is at all likely, but the general has hit on a fear that other countries will have.
