The CyberWire Daily Podcast 8.9.16

Strider—or is it Sauron?—seems to have taken a leaf from the Flamer APT playbook. Quadrooter sounds bad, but there are still no reports of exploitation in the wild. Carbanak group may have hit Oracle point-of-sale systems. Rio Olympics seeing rogue Wi-Fi hotspots. Acts of war in cyberspace or just cyber espionage and cybercrime? US Marshalls to auction Bitcoin seized from SilkRoad. And more Pokemon malware is found in the Google Play Store.

In today's podcast we look at an APT group that's been active since 2011. We hear about the Quadrooter Android vulnerability. We take a look back at Black Hat, and look for some sensible perspective on cyber risk. We also read some discussion of the differences between espionage, crime, and warfare. The US Marshalls will auction SilkRoad's forfeited Bitcoin later this month. Dr. Charles Clancy from Virginia Tech's Hume Center tell us what to expect from 5G cellular technology. And yes, there's more Pokémon-themed malware in the Play Store.
