Cybercriminal Forum Research, Mixcloud Breach, and International Crackdown On RAT Spyware

December 5, 2019 Digital Shadows

Viktoria invites Stewart Bertram to kick-off this week’s episode around new cybercrime research we put out on the Modern Cybercriminal Forum and how the rise of alternative technologies hasn’t spelled the end of forums, which seem to be prospering against all odds.

You can check out the research findings here: https://www.digitalshadows.com/blog-and-research/forums-are-forever-part-1-cybercrime-never-dies/

Next Adam Cook joins to discuss the weekly highlights including the Mixcloud Breach and an international crackdown on RAT spyware.

Finally, our Intelligence team gives a wider analytical piece on the topic of social media exposure and security standards in this week’s intelligence summary report (INTSUM), so make sure to check out that piece in this week’s report.
