Episode 45: Tales from the Crypto
First story is about someone who was “relieved” of their Bitcoin by some kids wielding malware back in 2018, when it was worth an awful lot less than it is now. There are some techie bits to this, as well as a few ethical and legal issues with the way the perps are being sued,…
First story is about someone who was “relieved” of their Bitcoin by some kids wielding malware back in 2018, when it was worth an awful lot less than it is now. There are some techie bits to this, as well as a few ethical and legal issues with the way the perps are being sued, so it’s a cracking story to get stuck into.
What do NFTs – non fungible tokens – and Banksy have in common? It’s pretty confusing as far as stories go, but our resident clearer-upperer, Kev, is on hand to help, leaving us to wonder if this is just Banksy himself having a bit of fun.
Sticking to the currency theme, we get knee deep in China’s digital Yuan in our next segment, and finally wrap up with a beautiful bit of OSINT from the Twitter Infosec community.
😎 Cool, not only an unverified 📸 with shady claims can go viral, but so can a step-by-step #verification of the same 📸.😎— Brecht Castel (@brechtcastel) August 31, 2021

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.
