In early June we published an article and accompanying white paper detailing an interesting malware infection which we’ve internally dubbed BabaYaga.

On Saturday one of our Senior Security Analysts and the author of the BabaYaga white paper, Brad Haas, sat down for an interview with Dave Bittner on the CyberWire podcast. We think you’ll really enjoy the 20 minute interview. Simply click play below to hear it. If you prefer a written version a full transcript is available here.
As always we’d love to hear your thoughts and questions in the comments.
