Episode 42: Hey Ya Kaseya: MSPs as unwitting attackers

Kaseya, Kaseya, Kaseya… How could we release an episode this week WITHOUT talking about the calamity at Kaseya? If you hadn’t heard, the ransomware gang REvil has leveraged a vulnerability in Kaseya’s VSA software against multiple MSPs and their clients. Oh dear. So what is it? Bog standard ransomware?

Kaseya, Kaseya, Kaseya... How could we release an episode this week WITHOUT talking about the calamity at Kaseya?

If you hadn't heard, the ransomware gang REvil has leveraged a vulnerability in Kaseya's VSA software against multiple MSPs and their clients. Oh dear. So what is it? Bog standard ransomware? Supply chain compromise? Zero-day exploit? It's all a bit murky, so Kev gets his 'Cyberattacks for Dummies' hat on.

Also featured is the news that audio-editing software Audacity has been accused of being 'possible spyware'.

The podcast taking cybersecurity personally

There's a lot of cool techy stuff going down in cybersecurity, and we love it. But you can't deny that a lot the time we humans get forgotten. Our podcast takes a not-so-serious look at issues in security from a human point of view. Covering social engineering to hacker motivations and everything in between, we chat through security stories and themes and what they mean to us: the oft-neglected humans behind the screen. Apart from Kev, Kev is a cyborg.

These weekly podcasts come in two main flavors. We’re either ranting about themes close to the heart of us security types, or we’re discussing threats and vulnerabilities that have hit headlines – or slipped under the radar – in recent weeks.

Join Chris Pace (tech advocate and keeper of the coloring pencils), Kev Breen (pro blue teamer, also known as 'Mr Nothing to CVE here...'), Max Vetter (former dark web detective and pretty cool guy), and Paul Bentham (ex-gov. type and Immersive Labs product guru) as they wend their way through the murky world of Cyber Humanity.

We help businesses to increase and evidence human capability in every part of cybersecurity.
