Risky Business #602 -- US DoJ hooks Sandworm

On this week’s show Patrick and Adam discuss the week’s security news, including:

  • US DoJ unseals indictments against Sandworm operators
  • Twitter backtracks on “hacked materials” policy
  • No consensus on Trickbot c2 status
  • NSA publishes “most exploited” listicle that’s actually interesting
  • Much, much more
