Decoding Security’s most recent episode, Cryptocurrency 101, brought insight into the elusive digital trend of cryptocurrency. Well, it is once again making headlines. Earlier this month, a 20-year old California college student was arrested for stealing over $5M in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies by hijacking more than 40 cell phone numbers. Also making cybersecurity news, inmates from five different Idaho Department of Correction facilities hacked tablets given to them for email, music, and games. By exploiting a vulnerability in the tablet’s software, they collected nearly $225,000 worth of credits to purchase various games and eBooks.
Many consider cryptocurrency to be the future of money since it eliminates disclosing personal financial information when purchasing goods and services online. So, what do you need to know? Security Analysts Jessica Ortega and Ramuel Gall highlight information you need to know about cryptocurrency and cryptojacking as you listen in this week.
