S3 Ep3: Cryptography, hacking and pwning Chrome [Podcast]


This week: the DOJ’s attempt to reignite the Battle to Break Encryption; the story of the Russian hackers behind the Sandworm Team; a zero-day bug just patched in Chrome; and (oh no!) why your vocabulary needs the word “restore” even more than it needs “backup”.

Presenters: Kimberly Truong, Doug Aamoth and Paul Ducklin.

Intro and outro music: Edith Mudge.
