I was delighted to have Paul Ducklin as my guest to discuss the week's security news. We kicked things off by talking about the recent international arrests by the FBI and other law enforcement agencies of a large fake anti-virus gang.
I also asked Paul for his thoughts about the recent reversal of transactions related to the Bitcoin digital currency. Despite Bitcoin's cryptographic chops, this incident leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
