Cross-posted to “AdventuresInCyberSecurity.com” and “BecomeACyberSecurity.Expert” Logo is stolen from the real Hydro Protocol folks. I get some interesting emails, and in particular, some interesting phishing emails. Most of them are quite poor, and fairly easy to spot, and the people constructing them don’t go through a lot of effort. I received one today that was […]Read More Anatomy of Cryptophishing – Hydro Project
Last year I predicted six trends for cybersecurity in 2014. Botclouds not botnets – the idea that malware command and control infrastructure would start to become more cloud based.

The first part, […]Read More #DeepWeb Lesson Number Four: Cryptocurrencies #bitcoin #litecoin #agorism #gloriousagoristfuture @coindesk @localbitcoins
Picture from codeproject.com. As an agorist (spell-check changed that to “amorist” originally, but I’m going to leave that one alone) it seems to me that things will eventually move from the centralised model of interaction to the more localised model. Having a 500+ person centralised government in a country of millions makes no sense when […]Read More Is the Glorious Agorist Future Peer-to-Peer? #P2P #PeertoPeer #Peer2Peer #DarkWeb #Agorism #Agorist #gloriousagoristfuture @rosenblumtv
