Now it’s automotive giant Honda’s turn to fall victim to what seems to be a fairly crippling cyberattack. And while they aren’t giving anything away, it seems cloud malware analyzer VirusTotal did have enough accessible information to tip off security researchers that Snake ransomware was the culprit. We also dive into Dark Basin with a look at The Citizen Lab’s hacker-for-hire intelligence analysis. And Call Stranger: cool name, great logo, but how bad is it?

About Cyber Humanity
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.
