Episode 52: Black Friday and Cybercrime

Digital Shadows

For this special mid-week edition of ShadowTalk, Harrison Van Riper, Jamie Collier, and Rafael Amado focus on cyber security threats over the Black Friday weekend and holiday season. Despite increased sales for retailers and bargain opportunities for consumers, Black Friday has had the unintended consequence of emboldening and enabling profit-seeking cybercriminals. The team discuss continuing activity by the Magecart group, as well as the ways in which cybercriminals are gearing up for the holidays from our investigations of online forums and messaging applications.
