DarkSide Pipeline Cyber Attack & More News
May 12, 2021 Season 1 Episode 45
Firewalls.com

In the latest case of real world implications stemming from a cyber attack, operations of the Colonial Pipeline, supplying almost half of the gasoline to the east coast of the U.S., stopped suddenly. Why? Colonial was the victim of a ransomware attack connected to the DarkSide group. We dissect the details of the attack, how it happened, what it means, how Russia may factor in, and when things might return to normal in a supersized headlines segment.

Also in headlines, hear about newly discovered vulnerabilities in IoT and OT devices thanks to Microsoft threat hunters, and how one UK company's phishing email training simulation couldn't have gone more wrong.
