Black Friday Deals On The Dark Web, Phineas Fisher Manifesto, And DarkMarket

Digital Shadows

Adam Cook and Viktoria Austin talk through the security and threat intelligence stories of this week including an update around Phineas Fisher, where the hacker offered up to $100k in what they called the “Hacktivist Bug Hunting Program”. The team also chats through a recent ransomware attack on Veterinary hospitals in the U.S., and some other ransomware updates.

Then Viktoria and Adam touch upon some research from our own threat intelligence team (Photon Research), specifically around the dark web, including research into Black Friday deals on the dark web, and a look at DarkMarket.
