This is a great interview with Adam Shostack on all things threat modeling. He's often the first name that pops into people's heads when threat modeling comes up, and has created or been involved with much of the foundational material around the subject. Adam recently released a whitepaper that focuses on and defines inherent threats.

We've talked about generative AI in a general sense on our podcast for years, but we haven't done many deep dives into specific security use cases. That ends with this interview, as we discuss how generative AI can improve SecOps with Ely Kahn. Some of the use cases are obvious, while others were a complete surprise to me. Check out this episode if you're looking for some ideas!

A clear pattern with startups getting funding this week are "autonomous" products and features.

  • Automated detection engineering
  • Autonomously map and predict malicious infrastructure
  • ..."helps your workforce resolve their own security issues autonomously"
  • automated remediation
  • automated compliance management & reporting

I'll believe it when I see it. Don't get me wrong, I think we're in desperate need of more automation when it comes to patching and security decision-making. I just don't think the majority of the market has the level of confidence necessary to trust security products to automate things without a human in the loop.

The way LimaCharlie is going about it, with their new bi-directional functionality they're talking up right now, might work, as detections can be VERY specific and fine-grained.

We've already seen a round of fully automated guardrail approaches (particularly in the Cloud) fail, however. My prediction? Either what we're seeing isn't truly automated, or it will become a part of the product that no one uses - like Metasploit Pro licenses.

This week, Adrian and Tyler discuss some crazy rumors - is it really possible that a cloud security startup valued at over $8 billion in November 2021 just got bought for $200 million???

Some healthy funding for Cyera and Cohesity ($300m and $150m, respectively)

Onum, Alethea, Sprinto, Andesite AI, StrikeReady, YL-Backed Miggo, Nymiz, Salvador Technologies, and Simbian all raise smaller seed, A, or B rounds.

Akamai picks up API security startup, Noname Security, Zscaler picks up Airgap networks, and it's rumored that Armis will acquire Silk Security for $150M.

LimaCharlie seems to be doing some vertical growth, adding its own response and automation capabilities (what they call "bi-directional" capabilities). CISA releases a malware analysis system to the general public. Boostsecurity.io releases "poutine", an open source CI/CD pipeline vulnerability scanner.

Some great essays this week, with Phil Venables' Letter from the Future, Ben Hawkes' Robots Dream of Root Shells, and Aileen Lee's 10 year Unicorn anniversary piece.

We briefly discuss the 3rd party breach that affected Cisco Duo customers, and the financial impact of Change Healthcare's highly disruptive ransomware incident.

Finally, we talk about the latest research on the security of LLMs and the apps using them. It's not looking great.

Protecting a normal enterprise environment is already difficult. What must it be like protecting a sports team? From the stadium to merch sales to protecting team strategies and even the players - securing an professional sports team and its brand is a cybersecurity challenge on a whole different level.

In this interview, we'll talk to Joe McMann about how Binary Defense helps to protect the Cleveland Browns and other professional sports teams.

This week, Tyler and Adrian discuss Cyera's $300M Series C, which lands them a $1.4B valuation! But is that still a unicorn? Aileen Lee of Cowboy Ventures, who coined the term back in 2013, recently wrote a piece celebrating the 10th anniversary of the term, and revisiting what it means. We HIGHLY recommend checking it out: https://www.cowboy.vc/news/welcome-back-to-the-unicorn-club-10-years-later

They discuss a few other companies that have raised funding or just come out of stealth, including Scrut Automation, Allure Security, TrojAI, Knostic, Prompt Armor.

They discuss Eclipsium's binary analysis tooling, and what the future of fully automated security analysis could look like.

Wiz acquired Gem, and Veracode acquired Longbow. Adrian LOVES Longbow's website, BTW.

They discuss a number of essays, some of which are a must read:

  • Daniel Miessler's Efficient Security Principle
  • Subsalt's series on data privacy challenges
  • Lucky vs Repeatable, a must-read from Morgan Housel
  • AI has Flown the Coop, the latest from our absent co-host, Katie Teitler-Santullo
  • Customer love by Ross Haleliuk and Rami McCarthy

We briefly cover some other fun - reverse typosquatting, AI models with built-in RCE, and Microsoft having YET ANOTHER breach.

We wrap up discussing Air Canada's short-lived AI-powered support chatbot.

In the days when Mirai emerged and took down DynDNS, along with what seemed like half the Internet, DDoS was as active a topic in the headlines as it was behind the scenes (check out Andy Greenberg's amazing story on Mirai on Wired). We don't hear about DDoS attacks as much anymore. What happened?

Well, they didn't go away. DDoS attacks are a more common and varied tool of cybercriminals than ever. Today, Michael Smith is going to catch us up on the state of DDoS attacks in 2024, and we'll focus particularly on one cybercrime actor, KillNet.

NVD checked out, then they came back? Maybe?

Should the xz backdoor be treated as a vulnerability?

Is scan-driven vulnerability management obsolete when it comes to alerting on emerging threats?

What were some of the takeaways from the first-ever VulnCon?

EPSS is featured in over 100 security products, but is it properly supported by those that benefit from it?

How long do defenders have from the moment a vulnerability is disclosed to patch or mitigate it before working exploits are ready and in the wild?

There's SO much going on in the vulnerability management space, but we'll try to get to the bottom of some of in in this episode. In this interview, we talk to Patrick Garrity about the messy state of vulnerability management and how to get it back on the rails.

As we near RSA conference season, tons of security startups are coming out of stealth! The RSA Innovation Sandbox has also announced the top 10 finalists, also highlighting early stage startups that will be at the show.

In this week's news segment,

  • We discuss the highlights of the Cyber Safety Review Board's detailed and scathing report on Microsoft's 2023 breach
  • We spend a bit of time on the xz backdoor, but not too much, as it has been covered comprehensively elsewhere
  • We discover half a dozen of the latest startups to receive funding or come out of stealth: Coro, Skyflow, Zafran, Permiso, Bedrock Security, Abstract Security, and Sandfly
  • Apple is reportedly going to have some big AI announcements this summer, and we discuss how overdue voice assistants are for an LLM makeover.
  • Finally, we discuss the amazing innovation that is the Volkswagen RooBadge!

By the way, the thumbnail is a reference to the xz backdoor link we include in the show notes: https://lcamtuf.substack.com/p/technologist-vs-spy-the-xz-backdoor
