"Been the financial incentive instead despite the user base the the size of the existing windows user base the adoption of the windows store has been very low and an apple has experienced the same thing on the mac app store. We saw lots of affidavits and and other emails about how desperate apple was during the trial to get people to use the mac app store in the way that they are forced to use the app store and i wonder walk us through the changes to the windows store. How microsoft is trying to approach attracting developers this time and ultimately whether you think it'll succeed after them trying at five or six different iterations over the years. Yes so the new marks are still which they say will launch later this year alongside windows eleven and also on windows ten has a brand new. Ui which kinda basically matches the rest of the windows. Eleven is very clean very fluid and all that good stuff but the biggest changes with the policies that govern the kind of apps that can actually be submitted to the store by developers in the past as you mentioned marks try to whole bunch of different things to get developers into the store when the windows store. I launched back in twenty twelve. I think it was. It was a very locked down ecosystem. They were very much trying to copy apple in that regard but over time they've slowly but surely relaxed things and allowed more more kinds of as into the store fronts in with the launch of windows ten. We moved to w pay which was still basically the same as what they were trying to do. Windows eight but very quickly. They transitioned to allowing a legacy desktop applications into the store as well as long as they were packaged a as a similar to how you pay package analysts abided by the marxist policies which includes things like updates being submitted and greenlee through the marxist store and using marks calmness platform where they take a fifteen percent cut from fifteen percent cut from a revenue now with windows. Eleven there essentially is blowing all of. That's away and saying you win. Developers you can submit any application. You once you don't have to make any changes to it. You don't have to package. It's like a vp app..

"Think during the event. Mike my prediction is. They're not even going to address. This is that the last version of windows thursday. They should they do it in a fun way. Should be funny. But i doubt they will be the next version of winning. They should bring up a clip jerry and be like remember this guy. Yeah we fired morning and jazz kidding you know and then you no of course you know just to see if he had anything to say so Tell it come on now. Really all we care about is tell us what is you know. It's it's all look is it. Nice company said it. Looks like a mac it to me. Well chrome it. Looks like chrome. Os is wrong. It may be more more to the point. It looks like windows. Ten x right. This is the windows ten x you. I brought over to big win does for lack of a better term Of course because it is big windows. It's better than when connects was. It also looks better. Just running on real hardware like You know windows next. We were running in a virtual machine and kind of flat and plain. You know if you think back to like the arrow days when it was like arrow basic was really terrible looking in flat and then they had aero glass and it was kind of awesome. I mean this is kind of like that. It's this is like the glass version. It's got some translucence going on Is is you know a better looking i. This is going to be controversial for people There's no doubt about it. There are people who are going to complain about the simplicity of the kind of dumbing down of the. They're going to be people who claim or complain about money Member hello muscle memory issues. Where all windows versions since windows ninety five i've had started over the lower left corner and then the icons kinda come out from there now. It's centered so as you run in. Close apps ooh the positions are going to change lohan points to the left tr. Move all of it. Like i'd actually like to see the start button. Stay over the left and have the icon spin the middle but Let me just make one point about the the center thing people have theorized about wide screen displays why might they do cetera. Et cetera This is the way the back has worked since two thousand one right when when apple introduced the doctor with mac. Os ten the first. One in the middle in the middle it's been there ever since and Hundreds of millions of people use that system. Every single data seems to work. Okay so i throw that out there. I know people you people freaking but like some mary. Jo i think said yes you can. There is an option in there if you want it over on the side anyway. More modern design which it is literally whether you're talking about setting it up or using it. It his windows ten so that just begs the question because mary jo was kind of thinking. Maybe it'd be more of a consumer targeted windows versus the end windows. Ten would continue as business but it sounds like maybe this is just the next version of windows. Well no no no. I don't think that changes anything that she said to be. Honest The way that this thing will be delivered or not delivered. We still don't know and it's very possible by the way there's a registry This registry entries. You can screw around with that will go back to an tent. So that tells me there's a switch that you can enable a disabled. We have new. Ui all you. I and her idea that businesses will be able to move forward for some amount of time. I went into ten. I think it's still very valid attitude. Because i think i think this is the next windows but i think they learned their lesson. I hope from windows eight and it's not just going to be like an now. We're doing this. It's going to be like we're gonna give you a run up to this right. Yeah i mean. I think it's fair to say that any consumer. Pc this assuming this comes out at the end of this year it will be Any consumer pc sold this holiday season. We'll probably come with this thing on it right in. There won't be a choice. you're not going to get like a little tile. Want the old one of the new one. I mean i. I think this is you know going to be the mainstream thing going forward but i'm one of the many lessons windows. Ten was businesses reacted very violently to a lot of this support upgrade ideas that microsoft had and this might be the final big concession. Okay we can stick with the the fact that idea. I'll sleep a switch in there. That says yeah because you i who cares and by the way that too is microsoft tradition that we kind of lost track of. And i'm not going to remember the exact version but if you think about microsoft evolve the like the start menu in windows. Xp was the first big change to the start menu but windows xp had a an optional. You go back to the traditional windows. Two thousand south start menu right And i don't remember when that stopped being the case probably will probably windows eight. You know frankly. But i don't remember Them offering you to go back to the old. Ui switchback deal. The i e. Even if it's only businesses i think is in keeping with that tradition and for a kind of a customer. Centric company like microsoft. Is maybe the right way to go mart. Very smart yes okay. I'm going to tell you the thing i've seen. I've been watching everybody running. I'm not running this bill. Because i'm not a meeting warble. Honestly you guys are all going to laugh. When i tell you party party probably already knows. I'm going to say here. My the feature that got the most excited yesterday was the new snap. Oh yeah well i saw. I actually know you happened to mention that to me separately. I do know that right. So if you hover over the maximize button instead instead of having some weird esoteric thing you have these different grid layouts of how you want to snap the windows mike. Finally i'm going to be able to use snap. This is Snap is one of several features in windows and this is not unique to windows. I think stuff like this and the mac. Ios whenever but that are just kind of not discoverable right Snap as a way to organize windows on screen. And i think a lot of people kind of understand you have two things side by side but there are other configurations you could have four windows whatever It's it's something it's possible by hitting certain on the keyboard you would stop and not know how you did it and then you're like well. I might want to do this again. How do you know. so this is like It's a little It's like a drop down window or whatever but box that you can do it. Yeah and i liked that because it makes snap discoverable. It doesn't to help you learn that keyboard shortcuts cat but now i had no idea there was one and so when i posted yesterday i love the new snap. I hope this stays the way it is. There are two different responses. I got on twitter. Was what a snap. I wanna since disease and everyone else was like your ears. Were stupid than a toddler with that was actually. You can't squad. I muted that person. And i said toddlers unite goodbye and then but but i'm like so i. I've always found it very difficult to get snapped to work on the first try and so i just stopped using it. I'm just like yeah. If i could defend you for a second microsoft's Research user research has shown that most windows users don't even know all tab exists tab existed probably windows two point. Oh i don't remember it to beat exactly but Yeah staff is a relatively new Development it only really became what it is now in like windows eight one probably exactly ban wasn't nato because remember eight. Oh snap is like a little tiny call. That was impossible. I can never ever snap on windows. Eight let me throw it. Here's a conspiracy theory for you or at least a theory. I i saw that. If you look at it let me look at it now. Say it When i look at those little thumbnails of the different configurations i see two screens..

"We'll be doing the live stream and you guys will join me. Which is nice. Meanwhile paul rod first of all. What is the providence of this so-called windows. Eleven that you seem to be reading. Wow well it leaked yesterday and I realized that's a rather passive way of saying it. I stakes were made. It might who knows to the thing is people you know a. I'll i'll address the last point in this part of the notes. I which is about the conspiracy theory thing. I've heard from a kind of astonishing number of people who feel that. This is literally microsoft level setting expectations by leaking purpose. Some people have even said literally they handed it to me and to other people like me with a little you know. Don't tell anybody wink. Wink nudge nudge. I don't sense actually. And that's why people believe conspiracy theories because they do make sense. in many cases This one i. That didn't happen. And i don't think that that's how it happened. I obviously it could have come from of microsoft employees. It's far more likely came from some kind of a partner or a customer. Who and oem and early actually building. Yes new machines individual working for a company you know who posted up on some public. I just just to address that. I just to be clear. Microsoft did not orchestrate this to my knowledge i mean in other words. They never approach me. Did you see the opposite conspiracy theory. Which was you guys. Think this is real. But it's not because microsoft put a fake leak out there to throw you all off the trail so whatever that's worth. I considered that And i i would not going to be in an audience. I can't stand up and applaud them. I would do that if that happened. i this is to elaborate for that. I think of windows right. It's literally right so this is a lot of work to go to. They don't a changing the windows. Shell is not an arbitrary thing you ain't i'll be later. Lunch is going to finish up the new show. It doesn't work that way right. This is a little more complicated than that don't why they thought that. I said this on twitter. I'm like yeah everybody's still has. Ptsd from windows eight right right if this was windows eight. That could have been a plausible idea. That's company charged at the time leaked mean what what what is what is the proper understand. What she's saying See us an oscar was very secretive right and he Did an about face with the previous regime. Jim all where you know. Remember they were all out nope and everything you know. They were telling everyone they were going to do. And it kind of blew up in their face with longhorn being delayed for several years and then they ended up with windows vista and Seeing that's enough ski said well. We're not we're doing the opposite you know there. There's always like this sort of reaction and I yes i. They deliberately tried to mislead us at that time before we saw the windows eight. Ui but they never released a fake thing. That's an enormous engineering effort. I mean it's i just. It's implausible i'll say at the the little asterix at the end of this is it is far more likely and probable. There's more going on than we see here because you know the way they build windows is any build from any place in microsoft could have just a part of what we're going to see eventually so it's more likely that this is an incomplete. Look and we already know for example. this is going to be a new app store at the app store. That's in here is exactly the same app store. There's gonna be a new settings app. The app the settings app. That's in here is exactly the same. A lot of the building apps are going to be updated And overhauled and built apps are all exactly the same so it's This is a new shell Basically what we're seeing here. A new u x however you want to say it and It's too complicated to create this thing because it would so easily be seen as a fake. If it wasn't in fact actually windows. It's it's it's working. You could upgrade from windows. Ten to this you can install it clean in a virtual machine or new hardware it windows. It's this is real like it's and will it be a little different. Maybe by the time it ships the public maybe hopefully We'll we'll talk about that. I mean you know. So i but i don't i. Just the conspiracy. Theory thing is it was getting a little. It's expected the degree to. I just had people. I know that microsoft. It's like you you know know. Honestly it doesn't make any difference. Unless isn't they released by the way i'm doing my larry king impression now. I hope you literally literally next up. Yeah i it's hot. It's hot and i've stripped down to suspenders. But at the end of the show you'll just have like a chip and dale dancer unless it's a and this is completely not credible. It's some sort of red herring to lead you off. The that would make no time. I make that okay. I just remembered something and mary. Jo will remember this as i said. Microsoft did do that one time. They did it with windows. Xp they really yeah they did it had a whistler ui that was a modified version of windows. Two thousand you i. It's weird which some people still love and wanted it to be the ui and then in february of whatever the it must have been two thousand one they revealed the actual ui which they had been working on secret so a lot of people thought originally that windows xp as they call it And what sorry watercolor was the name. Whistler was the codename for what is the ui. i was called watercolor and It was just a slightly modified version of the windows. Two thousand so it's happened but it seems crept credible. I don't look. I think there's more coming i and the degree to which there is more will help us former opinion a little more fully next week but I don't think it's fake. I don't think isn't this. Bill dated may thirtieth so it's fairly recent rate but do not tell honestly so one thing that we now know it is windows. Eleven right well okay. But maybe that's a red herring to right. I mean it does say is everywhere. Yeah ok does setup says those eleven. The ula says windows. Eleven wins linda's eleven. I think we've seen enough teases that we know it's witness eleven so that's that's flamed. Yeah whoa but know again. Who knows easy just to you. I shift is it just that things. Aren't there like that. Well not that. I have experienced directly. I mean from what i can tell. I'm not. I haven't dived into it any technical way. Like maybe raffaelle are walking. Cat might do but it is Yeah it's a it's a. ui refresh for.

"The store is just an app. It's wbz app and they could just take introduced it with windows eleven and then maybe back port that to ten right. That's been. What's the distinction between ten rockaway official. That's absurd be possibly be that microsoft's it possibly be that. We can debate that one. But i think. I don't know what to make of this. I i years ago when we used to talk after he had become the senate was who knows what version we were on. You know why doesn't microsoft just make a version for consumers over here and then one for businesses over here. What does that look like the. Us could be completely different. They probably wouldn't be completely different but they could be different. But really what you're looking for is the same at model. You know the win thirty two or you know whatever. All that stuff is the same. You know security Get driving model has to be the same. Exact drive companies insane. Yes it has to be the same. But the i could be different right. There's no reason why the u. I couldn't be different but you could do. I mean i know again. Can i just say this. This whole setup of this is the biggest windows release in a decade blah blah blah. This is marketing right. Yeah this is like to help them. Make a demarcation at and to get. Oem's just wondering what the actual difference is in a sounds like. It's nothing i we're making us to. We're going to be so disappointed when this thing is announced. Because it's really gonna be so much less than what anyone who is an enthusiast once and it's it it when you say you know oh it's going to be like the biggest windows update in a decade. I mean what what happened in the past decade. nothing. I mean well you know windows eight. Which is the eight step back from that cliff ever since then windows. Ten is the case for windows. Eleven because microsoft said and they're going to call them the carpet this witness tens of the last version of windows. What's the case. What case does microsoft was panos. Panay make so easy to walk past that statement you say we thought windows ten was going to be the last version of windows and then the world changed our addressing that need and you see this. I know but you see rounded corners. No no no no no. You're okay about last version go ahead. Oh okay but i everyone who makes a platform is addressing this exact same need. Which is this new hybrid work blah blah blah. Whatever that's what this is really about it's enabling makers to continue the role where they're selling more machines and they have to have certain high end well relatively new hardware that doesn't exist in five or ten year old computers and it's trying to get people to upgrade past the point where frankly i think they understand it's gonna drop off a cliff again otherwise so they're just trying to keep the excitement going. It's not about rounded. Corners is part of the modernisation. If i understand this people won't buy new. Pc unless there's a new version of windows to put on it. That's traditionally why people not true though. I mean i don't know if that's true. I don't think it is anymore. That was a new. Pc i know but today people don't buy new pc unless they need one right and increasingly. They don't need one in three or five years. They need one in seven or yes because kaiser intel has done anything in seven years so they had. They had a two cores like three years ago. Come on the only people by the pandemic right like some people bought new. Pc's but most people took the pc's ahead and they may do so only amazon. Microsoft are sitting there going. How can we get people to go buy new piece. That's no yes. This is absolutely the driver because it just looks the same for so many years in a row and windows hasn't cha- like we bought a computer. Six years ago is windows ten. What are we on windows. Sixteen noord winners ten. Oh why i. I really think. That's the russian. We'll see a spade fads from hp dell source. The new windows is here. Get a new. Pc the match your new windows. You know what's going to happen going to fool anyone we're waiting. Allow twenty twenty three. We're gonna see how pc sold next year. And it's think it's going to be. A bonanza is inevitably going to go down because there was an artificial bump because of yeah they can do anything to keep flat or close to fly be happy. She'll be a success. Yes and now okay. Now before i forget the idea about this is microsoft saying this was the last version of windows. So do you know. Microsoft never said that i was just gonna ask you that question. This has been this. Is the this quote has been attributed to such an adela and i okay. I was wondering the same word so a few of us have been researching this lately and it came from a guy who paul and i both know named jerry Who is an engineer at microsoft and colorado. He said this during ignite in two thousand nineteen and because microsoft never corrected that everyone just kind of started saying it right like yes Microsoft said it's the last version but no one in an official position that i can find anywhere ever session so the place to look that i would. I would look if i really wanted to know. And i gotta say just.

"So mike. You know it's a big deal. I mean i think people get excited. maybe windows seven was the last time we really got excited us. Ten was a good thing. But i i don't the people jump up and down.

They were trying to jama shoehorn tablet operating system into a desktop operating system windows a ten fixed all that smooth it out and i wouldn't have very nice. There's some debate about whether it's as good as windows seven. But i think most people agree that you know the great versions of windows were windows. Two thousand remember that one windows seven and And windows ten and windows. Ten microsoft said this. The last one is that we're gonna stick with forever so get it and you won't ever have to pay for an upgrade. So now they lied. Here's windows eleven. I don't will you have to pay for it.

"Whatever tool or computer. I'm using well. David that will depend on what the documents you want to access our for example. If you live in google's ecosystem then it's hard to beat google drive quite frankly since their documents. Don't count against your storage allowance. Google drive also works across many kinds of devices though. It's fairly clunky on mobile devices. If you want to keep your own files for example some. Pdf manuals dropbox or box are pretty effortless. They'll sync with a folder. So you don't have to bother with uploads but you know your documents are automatically sinked. Google drive does this too. But it leans heavily on google's sweet apple devices all read in sync to icloud automatically as if it was just another folder on your mobile or home devices so that would be a good option. If you stick with apple's ecosystem let us know which end up going with because it'll help others. Sharon in fort worth texas. Listens to the free into tomorrow. Podcasts guy on asking about phones for visually impaired he wanted bones for what we call partially sighted that use magnification. There are two other phones. That i know about one is called the blind shell phone. It has the capability to enlarge the screen or it has built in speech and the other one is the envision catches smartphone at k. a. p. s. y. s. He could do. Google search and fun both of those phones. They both have the capability to enlarge the screen and have built in speech. Well thank you. Sharon so much. Bless your heart especially because one of our favourite calls are always listeners helping other listeners and that was some great input. We appreciate that sharon very much. And if you've got something to add to the show we would love to hear from you. Eight hundred eight nine nine into or the into tomorrow app clifton in toledo ohio don't know how he here's the show but welcome into tomorrow clifton on gain windows seven. It's not work anymore on my computer. Do i need to purchase a new computer to get windows ten. Can i download it. Well clifton the vast majority of computers that could run windows seven. Ken run windows. Ten microsoft buried an obscure mention of the computer's processor needing to support. Pa se to to be able to run windows ten but their main official line was the requirements are the same as they were for windows seven. Now that means that you almost certainly don't need a new computer to run windows. Ten and microsoft has free software. That will run a check for you and confirm that and that's offers probably already on your computer. If you've kept it updated at least there is some bad news though For a pretty long while windows ten was a free upgrade to anyone who had windows seven microsoft was pushing really hard to move people to windows ten after windows eight flopped and they offered as a free upgrade now unfortunately that period ended in twenty sixteen. Of course windows. Ten has been around for a while. Yeah we were reminding people multiple times every show. We've heard reports of people being able to upgrade at activate windows ten with their windows seven key. So you may get lucky but officially the free upgrade period is over and has been for years and you should expect to need to spend the price of a new license yeah windows. Ten is no longer supported by microsoft so upgrading even if it does end up costing you the price of a new windows ten license is probably worth it anyway just to continue having upgrades and patches. Yeah but hopefully clifton. No you don't have to buy a new computer and winston licensed. I want to one hundred twenty bucks so even if you have to upgrade it's gonna cost you a lot less than it would cost you for new laptop. Yeah very true. Please do let us know what you end up doing. And how it works out for you because again. It helps other folks in the audience as well. And if you've got a question or concern eight hundred eight nine nine into or the audio option on that into tomorrow app. Joe in anchorage. Alaska listening on k. b. y. r. And we'll have you joe calling in using the free into tomorrow app which i found your program a lot earlier. I just started listening to you within the past few months here. I have a smartphone. It's a samsung s. Eight plus and i don't have wifi internet at my house and i'm trying to figure out ways to mir my screen onto my tv. That's not a smart tv. I tried the usb hd but the usb c port on my phone is a little faulty maoz wondering if they had any other options or if you knew any other options i might be able to explore well joe unfortunately without wi fi or wired connections. Your options do dwindle very quickly. The s eight series is. Myra cast compatible or mirror. Cast will mirror being spanish and other languages too for c. Yes mita right. And that's probably your best. If not only option samsung rebrand. Mira cast too smart view and selecting that allows you to send content to a tv that is compatible with the feature. Now since you don't have a smart tv. Your set won't be compatible out of the box. But you can buy america's receiver that you can then plug into your tv for very little money. For example in any cast. Ten eighty p receiver can be found online for as little as seven bucks prices. Do go up at. They're all pretty similar devices so you can probably find a decent one for under twenty bucks. Mirror has basically like chromecast. But without the google branding and won't require the device to be on wi fi place so it should work for your needs since like google. Samsung customizes the technology. Your mileage may vary your mileage. may vary where prohibited. Yeah yeah So we'd recommend getting advice from a store that will allow you to send it back if samsung's customer list doesn't want to talk to it other than that. We can't think of any options. That would allow you to set up a wireless connection without needing wifi and your own. Yeah now joe. Do stay tuned our listeners. The best on the planet and if someone has an idea that they can add to our answer we would absolutely welcome that and if you do then eight hundred eight nine nine into or do what. Joe did use the audio option on the free app and say have joe try the following and then tell us the following because i wish there were other easy fixes for you. But under the circumstances with no y. fights toughest re mentioned. Do let us know though what ends up working for you because it will help other listeners. And stay tuned into tomorrow. Dot com kathy in essex ontario listens on am eight hundred c klw. And we love you kathy calling in using the into tomorrow app. I'm interested in buying my son and his family projector so they can do movies outside. What do you recommend. well kathy. There are some more things we need to know to really be able to recommend one specifically for you. But we'll give it a try for example. Does he have power outside if he does. Any will work as long as they remember to bring it back inside after they're done and they have decent enough speakers to plug into it if he doesn't they'll need something portable with a built in battery speakers. Most people who want backyard projectors don't have power and want something portable so we'll focus on those since they're the most likely to help in this case for instance the l. g. p. f. aka this was meant to travel. It's fairly small. It's got good image quality at ten eighty p resolution and a battery life of about two and a half hours to pretty much almost any movie. Yeah yeah you can find it online for about six hundred and fifty bucks. I'm not really cheap. Anchors nebula mars to pros also portable amid also has speakers and has a better battery life at about three hours but the resolution drops to seven twenty p The price does drop a little too but it still in the five to six hundred dollar range. Now of you saw 'em one will cost you less at around one hundred and fifty dollars. It comes with better speakers than most. It has six hour battery life and it's very light at about a pound and a half but the resolution drops to four adp. Cathy i hope we gave you some various good ideas.

"Had for quite a while. I mean, at some point, they're going to give up on supporting it, but honestly, it had Windows eight drivers. And there's not that much difference between Windows eight drivers. In fact, there's very little difference between Windows eight drivers and Windows 10 drivers. So let me just let me just check here. Windows 10 64 bit drivers. You know, Maybe they've updated that since then, I don't know. It looks like If I go to H r reps and dot com and go to the driver's section and look for the You said it was perfection. 12 60 correct. Am seeing scanner driver and absence can utility for that. But so I would check the absence site that it may simply be. There weren't drivers when you talked to them, and they have come up with drivers Since then. This is just a few days ago, I would check I would try the driver they offer. The other thing you could do is the older if used the older driver, you can run it in compatibility mode. There's a compatibility tab. And you can run the program and compatibility mode and that might work. And then finally, I'm gonna tell you actually about Scanner driver that should work and is not from HP or absent. I keep saying H P m sorry is not from H. P s called Twain. Is that it? No, No, it's not. It's Let me see. There's a third party. Scanner driver that works with Twayne. So yeah, wait. We found one online, and it said that they've got the driver and but then it said, Oh, this could be ah, filled with malware and one of the comments on the site from somebody's obviously done it, Woz. Yeah, it worked. But he spent like two days trying to get all the Mount. Where off? Well, don't get one with malware. That's for that. That sounds like a bad idea. Even if it works. I think they're not getting it from original source. And I'm I'm real. I'm racking my brain now because I haven't Looked at this in a long time, but it was a great third party. Scanner driver that worked with is there's a standard for Scanners called Twain. And there are a number of companies view scan. That's it. Is that the one you tried If you view E s E a. N It is, as I remember. I think it might be freed from Hamrick. So if you get it from the original, it may be that you were. I would guess if you've got some malware on it, you were getting it from another site, not the original site. And, um the other site added the Mount Where, because, uh, would be silly to write a real working scanner driver and then put malware on it right, Go to Hamrick dot com. H A. M r i c dot com You can try it for free. It is four windows 10. It works with most scanners. I bet you anything and works with the absent perfection. Because There's a standard that for scanners called Twain and most scanners supported so you could go to Hamburg Duck. This is actually gonna find it's better than the Epson software anyway. It's called View Scan, and.

Sandworm: A New Era of Cyberwar and the Hunt for the Kremlin's Most Dangerous Hackers
"Everybody from the British. Ask this week's interview. Episode has any Greenberg senior writer at wired. He just SORTA book called Sand Worm New Era of cyber war in the hunt for the Kremlin's Miss, dangerous hackers, it is all about hacking group inside of the Russian government called San Worm. They were responsible for the most damaging cyber warfare attacks over the past year there behind not PECI. The hackers took out in the mayor shipping line hospitals across the U. K San has totally escalated. What we think of Cyber War, and he's book gets all into how they were discovered how they were flushed out the. The intricacies of these various hacks. It's super interesting. The book is a thrill ride. If you're looking for something that isn't the virus. This is like a thriller, a highly recommended. It was really fun to talk to her about the stuff. one thing I. WanNa know we're all at home so during this in every might hear some kids in the background. I asked you just be a little forgiving that we're all. We're all dealing with it and he was a great interview. Check Out Sandy Greenberg of sand worm, a new era of cyber war and the hunt for the Kremlin's most dangerous hack. Any Greenberg your senior writer at wired you're also the author of Sand Worm, new era of cyber war in the hunt for the Kremlin's most dangerous. Welcome glad to be here so even writing about cybersecurity frontier I think you just said two thousand six and writing about Cybersecurity, but this book sand worm as I was reading it. It seems like it's called the new era of cyber war. It seems like there's been a huge turn in sort of state-sponsored. Particularly Russians sponsored cyber attacks. How did you come onto that notion? How did you begin reading this book I'm I'm very curious how you see. See that turn happening well. In late twenty sixteen, my former colleague Kim Zetter she had been the one who really covered state sponsored hacking in cyber war stuff, but she left wired, and this was also at the time. When you know Russian hackers were meddling in the US election, they'd hacked the democratic. National Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the Clinton Campaign, so my editors were really primes on face, mantra hacking all of a sudden, but what they? They really what they told me they wanted was a actually like a big takeover of the whole magazine. All about cyber war, but cyber war to me is different than those kinds of espionage election, meddling tactics so I went looking for no real cyber war story, which means to me like a actual disruptive cyber attacks, and as I looked around. It seemed like the place where that was really happening was in Ukraine not really in the US in fact maybe. Maybe what was happening in? Ukraine seemed to me like it was in some ways, the only real full blown cyber war that was actually occurring where Russian hackers were not just attacking the election which they had done, they tried this spoof the results of a presidential election, but they had also attacks media and destroyed their computers. They had attacked government agencies and tried to like destroy entire networks, and then they had turned off the power for the first time. In December of two thousand, fifteen, the the first actual blackout triggered by hackers, and just as I was look into this happened again the the effect, the seem hacker group caused a blackout this time in the capital of Kiev so I wince looking in Ukraine for this cyber war story that. Turned into a cover story for wired that kind of gave editors what they wanted, but then also kept unfolding This cyber war kept growing in scope and scale and. The original story written for wired was kind of about the fact that you could look to Ukraine to see the future of cyber war that will what was happening. There might soon spread to the rest of the world. And that is actually what happens to like just after we publish that cover story to same hackers released this climactic terrible cyber attack in Ukraine. Called Not Petiot that spread beyond Ukrainians became the worst cyberattack history cost ten billion dollars, so when that happened, that was when I saw that there was potential to do a book about this that it was not just a kind of case study about Ukraine or even kind of predictive story, but a an actual full story arc about this one group that had carried out the what I would say was not only the first. First Real Cyber War, but the worst cyberattack in history and the you know I wanted to capture the the Ark of that story in the effects, the real experience of cyber war. Yeah, so the group is called sand worm in this is just one of the the sort of opening arcs of the book is how they've come. They come to be named this because references and code walk people through just like it's so. relatable that like even these hackers are using using this language that leads them recalled Sandwich Tell people about it. So when I started to look into the origins of this group after that second blackout attack I I found that this this company called eyesight partners which have been acquired by fire I I, said partners was the first to find these hackers in twenty, fourteen, basically using fishing in kind of typical espionage tactics, plant malware in the networks of typical Russian hacking targets like groups across Eastern, Europe and NATO in a look like what they were doing was just kind of typical espionage. They were planning. This by wear calls lack energy buds will first of all they could see that they were rushing, because they had this server that they were using to administer some of these attacks and they. They left the server, so anybody could look at it in. There was a kind of Russian language to file for how to use black energy on the service, so these guys seem like they were rushing, but even more interesting in some ways. was that they to track each victim each instance of black energy? This malware has little campaign code in each campaign was a reference to the science fiction novel Dune and you know so like one of them was something about Iraq is, and then one of them is about the sutter cars, these like imperial soldiers in in that SCI FI universe so I said partners named this group sand worm, because well just because it's a cool. Name associated with doing, but it turned out to me. It became this very powerful because a sandwich miss this monster that lies beneath the surface, and occasionally arises from underground to do terribly destructive things. partners didn't know that at the time, they they soon afterward realized what sand. was doing was not just espionage, but they were actually doing reconnaissance for disruptive cyberattacks. They were also hacking power grids. They were planning black energy, not only in the European Eastern European targets in the US power grid networks as well. The Ultimately Syndrome was the first twenty fifteen to cross that line in use black energy as the first step in a multi step attack that led to a blackout. So this was not just espionage really was kind of like you know this monster that rises from under the ground to do terrible acts of mass destruction that came to pass so one of the things that comes up over in the book. Is this growing sense of dread from security researchers and analysts? Oh this is an imminent threat to the united. States just Ukraine, but like this is happening here and then there's a sense that the United States actually open the door to this kind of warfare with stuxnet. which was an attack on Iran? How how did those connect for you that it seemed like there's a new rule of engagement new set of rules of engagement for cyber warfare that actually the United States implicitly created with with stuxnet by attacking Iran. Yeah, I mean I tried to highlight. Clearly sand worm are the real bad guys in the story, they are the actual hacker group that did these terribly reckless destructive attacks that actually in some cases put people's lives at risk, the kind of in some parts of the story they actually shutdown medical record systems and I. Think may have cost people's lives with cyber attacks today they are the actual antagonist here, but I also want to highlight the ways that the US government is is partially responsible for the state of Cyber War, and there are a few ways that that's true. I The US! Open the Pandora's box of cyber war with stuxnet. This piece of now where that. That was used to destroy Iranian nuclear enrichment centrifuges that was the first piece of our that actually have caused that physical disruption destruction, and we now see Sandra doing the same thing in Ukraine. In in fact, in some ways around the world, also the the US hordes, these kind of zero day, secret hacking techniques, some of which were stolen and leaked and used by sand worm, but then I think the in fact, the biggest way that I tried to highlight that the US is responsible or complicit or negligent. Here is that we did not call allows what Santorum was doing in Ukraine and say to Russia. We know what you're doing. This is unacceptable. Nobody should be turning out the lights. Two civilians with cyber attacks. There wasn't a message like that I. mean the Obama White House sent a message to Russia over this kind of cyber hotline to say your election hacking is not okay. We see what you're doing and we want you to stop, but they said nothing about a tube blackout attacks in Ukraine, and that was kind of implicit signal to Russia. They could keep. Keep escalating, and even as all the cyber security, researchers and Ukrainians were warning that what was happening to Ukraine, would soon spread to the rest of the world, the US government ignore this both Obama, and then the trump administration until that prediction came to pass and a sand worm cyberattack did spread to the rest of the world, and it was too late, and we all suffered globally as a result, so let's talk about patch it. WAS CATASTROPHIC IN SCOPE, right? It took out the mayor shipping line, which is a massive business. It took out some hospitals in UK like it was huge in scope. I don't think people really put it all together. Talk about how it started and how big it grew. Yeah, so not too was kind of like big apotheosis sandwich, where all of these predictions of the terribly destructive things they were doing to the rest of the world came to pass but it did it started in Ukraine. They hijacked this. The the software updates of this accounting software called me doc that is basically used by everybody in Ukraine. The quicken turbo tax of Ukraine. If you do business in Ukraine, you have to have this installed, so sanborn hijack the updates of that news to push out this worm to thousands of victims mostly in Ukraine, but it was a worm, so it's spread the mmediately end quickly kind of carpet bombs. The entire Ukrainian Internet's every computer at spread to would encrypt permanently. You could not recover the computer, so it very quickly took down pretty much every. Every Ukrainian government agency twenty two banks multiple airports for hospitals in Ukraine that I. could count and in each of these cases. What is eight took them down. I mean it destroyed essentially all of their computers, which requires sometimes weeks or months to recover from, but then as you know, this is a worm that does not respect national borders. So even though it was, it seemed to be an attack intended to disrupt Ukraine. It immediately spread beyond Ukraine's borders. Borders to everybody who had this accounting software installed? That was doing business in Ukraine and some people who didn't so that includes Maersk. The world's largest shipping firm and Fedex and Mondelez, which owns cadbury, NABISCO and ranking manufacturing firm that makes tylenol in Merck. The Pharmaceutical Company in New Jersey on each of these companies lost hundreds of millions of dollars. The scale of this is kind of difficult to capture but I in the book I tried to. To I focused in part Maersk because it is just a good company to look at because you can. They had this gigantic global physical machine that is they have seventy six ports around the world that they own as well as these massive ships that have tens of thousands of shipping containers on them. And I told the story of how on this day seventeen of their terminals of were entirely paralyzed by this attack with ships arriving with just. Piles of containers on them. Nobody could unload. Nobody knew what was inside of nobody knew how to load or unload them with around the world of seventeen terminals, thousands of trucks, Semitrailers, carrying containers were lining up in Lyons miles long because the gates that were kind of checkpoints to check in the these trucks to drop something off or pick it up. They were paralyzed as well. This was a fiasco on a global scale is responsible for a fifth of the world's lable shipping capacity. They were truly just a rendered brain dead by this attack, but yeah displayed out at all of these different victims MERC had to borrow their own each vaccine from the Center for Disease Control because they're manufacturing. Manufacturing was disrupted by this, and it ultimately spread to a company called nuance, nate speech to text software. They have a service that does this for hospitals across the US to dozens of our possibly hundreds of American hospitals at this backlog of transcriptions to medical records that were lost because of this, and that resulted in patients, being do for surgeries or transfers, other hospitals in nobody knew their medical records were updated. I mean this was scale where hundreds of hospitals each of which has thousands of patients missing changes the medical records. We don't know what the effects of that work, but very well could've actually harmed people's health. Our lives I mean the scale of not petty is very difficult to. Get your mind around, but we do know that you know monetarily cost ten billion dollars, which is by far the biggest number we've ever seen, but it also had this this kind of harder to quantify toll on people's lives, so it it you know you read about it at length and wired. Obviously these companies go down of ripples in mainstream sort of general press, but I don't feel like people really not like Oh. This Russian group called San Worms sponsored by the Russian government. Unleash this attack in it caused this cascading effect of failure and disaster cost in that because we know what we can attribute it to the government, our government. I don't feel like that connection got made for people. What is the gap between other as a hack and Oh, this is actually a type of warfare engagement, because that that connection seems very tenuous. I think for a lot of people. Even as sort of the more general mainstream press covers this stuff. Yeah, you know. I don't think that that's is just like the nature of. Of Cyber War I think that was a failing that that lack of connection is a failing on our government's parts, and on you could say even on the part of some of these victims like these large companies I mean I at the time did not pitch it happened. I was fully on the trail of standard within days. I was talking to cyber security researchers who? Who had piece together? Some of the forensics to show the not petiot was Sandra that it was a Russian state-sponsored attack in yet none of those companies that I mentioned mercker Mondelez or Maersk or Fedex, or any of them wanted to say the Russia had done this to them and know governments were talking about either like the Ukrainian government was. They're always willing to point. Point the finger at Russia, but the US government was not, and you know that to me seemed to be just kind of I mean I felt like I was being gas. Let's at that point. I had watched Russia due to Ukraine for a long time at that point tonight. I sort of understood that NATO in the West. We had this kind of cruel logic that. Ukraine is not us. Russia can do what it likes to Ukraine because they're not NATO not e you. They are Russia's sphere of influence or something I think that that's very wrongheaded, but at least it made sense. You know to have that that viewpoints, but now this attack had spread from Ukraine to hit American soil American companies in many cases and yet still the US government was saying nothing I just thought this was bizarre and you know so i. For months I was like. Trying to get any of these companies to tell the story of of their experiences, not Peta I was trying to figure out why the US government wasn't talking about the fact that this was a Russian cyberattack and ultimately I. Think it was I. think it was kind of I know partly disorganization negligence. I think it may have something to do with the fact that the. The? Trump administration doesn't like talking about Russian hackers for obvious reasons, but eight months after it took eight months ultimately for the US government to finally say not that it was a was Russia it was the worst cyberattack in history, and then a month later. The White House impose consequences in put new sanctions on Russia and response, but it took nine months and more importantly it took. Multiple years this without was the first time this was twenty eighteen, and the Russian cyber war in Ukraine had started around the fall of Twenty fifteen, so that's just incredible span of negligence when the US government said nothing about these escalating unfolding. Acts, of Cyber Award that there should have been unacceptable from the very beginning I mean these are the kind of quintessential acts of state sponsored cyber attacks on civilians, trying out the lights. You know that's the kind of thing that I believe that the US government should have called out and drawn a red line across at the very beginning took ears, so I do think it was a big failing. Of of diplomacy, it just seemed like that part of the problem, and this is kind of an expression is it's so hard to describe like if the Russian government sent fighter jets to America and live their support. Okay, like everyone understood, you can see it. You can understand what happened there. In the you know, there's like a however many decades of movies about how to fight that war. This is a bunch of people in a room typing. Like it there's just an element of this where the dangerous Oh federal where the attack is invisible, and while the effects might be very very tangible, the causes are still sort of mysterious people so. My question is who is sandwich. What what do we know about them? Where do they work? What are they like? Do we have a sense of how this operation actually operates? In some ways the the biggest challenge of reporting this book, and I spent essentially the third act of the book, the last third of the reporting of the book, trying to answer the question of who is in worm, who are these people? Where are they located? What motivates them and I guess to partially spoil the ending here. They are a unit of the year you. They are a part of Russia's military intelligence agency, which is responsible for you know, this is not a coincidence. They are responsible for election meddling responsible for the attempted assassination of You. chemical weapons in the United Kingdom they're responsible for the downing of a seventeen as commercial passenger jet over Ukraine were three hundred innocent people died on the G. R.. You are this incredibly reckless callous out military intelligence agency, but they act like kind of almost just cut through mercenaries around the world. Doing Russia's bidding in ways that are very scary, so I threw essentially like a combination of excellent work of a bunch of security researchers who I was speaking to combined with some confirmation from US intelligence agencies, and then ultimately some other clues from the investigation of Robert Muller into meddling all these things combined created the trail that led to one group within the JERE. You that were you know I? Eventually had some names and faces even address of this this group, and all that was actually only finally fully confirms After the book came out Justin in recent months when the White House finally actually was the State Department's. End as well as the UK on Australian and other governments together finally said yes, sand worm is in fact that this unit of the year you so this theory that I developed in positive near the end of the book was finally basically confirmed by governments just in recent months. So one thing that strikes me at that is I, think of the Russian military things. Gru is being foreboding being obviously, they're very very good at this other a buttoned up in then they have like a incredible social media presence that kind of POPs up throughout the book that distracts from what doing. They set up Gucci for two point Oh when they were doing the DNC hacks that fed to wikileaks in the. That account insisted it was just guy. They set up the shadow brokers which was. I read. It is just like your some goof-balls like they wanted to seem a lot dumber and a lot smaller than they were. They were very effective at it to people I. Talk About those that strategy, and then I guess my question have is like a re better at seeing that strategy for what it is well. You make a really interesting point. The uses these false flags like throughout their recent history that we I should say we don't know that they were responsible for shadow brokers. In fact, nobody knows who shot a brokers. The shadow brokers truly are, and they are in some ways the biggest mystery in this whole story, this one group that hacked the NSA apparently and leaked a bunch of their zero day hacking techniques, or maybe they were even say insiders. We still don't know the answer to that question, but the other other incidents you mentioned. That are you are responsible for this Guja for two point zero fake hacktivists leaked a bunch of the Clinton documents. They're responsible for other false flags like they at one point to call themselves the Cyber Caliphate pretended to be Isis. They've a pretended to be like patriotic pro. Russian Ukrainians at some point they they're always like wearing different masks ends. They're very deceptive. in the a later chapter of the book, some of the biggest one of the biggest attacks they. They did was this attack on the twenty thousand Olympics where they not only wore a false mask, but they actually had layers of false flags where as cyber security researchers W. This melwert was used to destroy the entire back end of the two thousand eighteen winter Olympics. Just as the opening ceremony began, this was a catastrophic events. The aware had all of these fake clues made look like it was Chinese or North Korean or maybe Russian. Nobody could tell it was like. It was this kind of confusion bomb almost designed to to just make researchers throw up their hands. Give up on attributing mallards. Any particular actor was only through some amazing detective work by some of the analysts that I spoke to the able to cut through those false flags identify that sand was behind this essentially, but yeah, it's it is a one very real characteristic of the jury you that they are almost they seem to almost take pleasure or like be showing off their deception capabilities to and their evolving those capabilities they are getting more deceptive over time as fake gets more, destructive aggressive.

The concept is nothing new Sir Thomas more. I introduced the theory five hundred years ago, but we keep looking for that community identity stability of aldous. Huxley's Utopia and not finding it. Americans are the unhappiest they've been in decades and we're increasingly lonely. whereas in a utopia, everyone belongs to everyone else. In nineteen, forty-three, the psychologist Abraham Maslov developed a theory of Yoga. One that allows total self determination in basic terms. maslow's theory says that in a utopia we decide for ourselves what we need and how we're going to get it in Huxley's Utopia. Citizens always get what they want and don't want what they can't get. Sounds pretty good right then. Why can't we make it happen?

This is bowes I'm a podcast or By, I, a Gamer Five G. is changing the gaming world in really unexpected exciting ways with the help of Samsung Five G. I'm getting a peek at how gaming is getting faster smoother and can even improve our lives well. Let's dish some secrets about the future gaming. Dr Jean Mechanical Direct Route Game Research and development at the Institute of the future. She's also a bestselling author game inventor. She's optimistic about gaming impact on us and our minds. The biggest thing that we've seen in research is that. We need to be able to game in the moment wherever we are. So, what happens when when you're playing when your favorite games is that it fires up than her logical pathways, it's kind of like having a of caffeine and a pet dog from your favorite coach, and you've just meditated for an hour. This emotional neurological power up is called the game transfer effect, and that effect is heightened when using five. Five G. The game transfer fact requires you to be totally immersed in the game, so you want to have the most amazing graphics and the most immersive audio and with five G. to do that anywhere anytime, be one of the first to harness the game transfer effect with Samsung Galaxy Five G. now available on Galaxy, S Twenty-five g and a seventy one five G. feels good to be I with Samsung. I love to play the game of like. Imagine the meeting and imagine that the one set of meeting which is like the actual hackers finding the vulnerabilities figuring out how to jump from Windows, eight computer to some sort of physical hardware controller that actually runs like that. That's a very hard problem in and of itself, and then the other meeting. They're like what we're GONNA do is claim to be a guy called Gucci for two point, Oh and like those are. Not Connected Right, but the way they throughout the book the way they execute East campaigns they're deeply connected, and that seems like not only just a new kind of warfare, and you kind of craft, but some just consistently seems to work in surprising ways like the tech press is GonNa. Be Like Gucci. I says this and we're. There's never that next step of also we think it's Russian government, and that seems like first of all I'm dying. I imagine the meeting right. I would love to be a fly on the wall of the meeting where they decide what their twitter name is going to be today. I'm very curious how they evolve those attacks in such a way that it just seems to be more and more effective time. Yeah, I mean. I also love to have been those meetings in. It's my one kind of regret in this book that I never actually got. Interviews, it's almost an impossible thing to do. They liked find defectors from the R., you or something. He will tell those stories at a knock it murdered I mean. It's kind of a possible, but but. In some cases? I think your earlier points. They almost seem kind of bumbling in these things they do them in a very improvisational way. for two point Oh seemed almost like it was a justice thing they invented on the spot, tried to cover up some of the the accidental ups like they had left russian-language formatting errors in the documents that they had leaked from the DNC, so they admitted this guy who appeared the next day and started. Talking about being a Romanian. Friends as motherboard Lorenza, Franceschi decry he started this conversation. Align with with Guja for two point, oh basically proved at the guy could not actually properly speak Romanian. BE Russian speaker. In fact, it was. It was almost comical at the same time. They're using very sophisticated hacking techniques doing destructive attacks on a massive scale, but they're also. They seem like they're kind of making it up as they go along. They do things that don't actually seem very kind of strategically smart. They kind of seem like they're trying to impress their boss for the day. Sometimes with just like some sometimes, it's just seems like the Jere. You wakes up in asks themselves. Like what can we blow up today? Rather than thinking like? How can we accomplish the greater strategic objectives of the Russian Federation? So they are fascinating in that way and very stringent colorful group. That's I think one of the biggest questions I have here is. We spend a lot of time trying to imagine what flat and Mirror Putin wants. You know when he grows up, but it. None of this seems targeted like what is the goal for Russia to disrupt the Winter Olympics right like. Is there a purpose to that? Is that just a strike fear? Is it just to? EXPAND THAT SUV influenced. Is it just to say we have the capability furious is there? has there ever really been the stated goal for this kind of cyber warfare? That one is particularly mystifying. I mean you can imagine why Russia would want to attack the Olympics. They were banned from the two thousand Eighteen Olympics doping, but then you would think that they might want to attack the Olympics and send a message maybe like eight deniable message a message that you know if you continue to ban us. We're GONNA. Continue to attack you like like any terrorists would do, but instead they attacked the winter. Olympics in this way, that really seemed like they were trying not to get caught, and instead like make it look like the was Russia North Korea? And then you have to like what is the point of that was? The could kind of. Sit there in Moscow and kind of like rub their hands together in gleefully. Watch this chaos unfolds. It almost really does seem like it was petty vindictive thing that they just for their own emotional needs wanted to make sure that nobody could enjoy the Olympics if they were not going to enjoy them I that was, but that one is i. think outlier in some ways for the most part you can kind of see. The Russia is advancing. The G. R. You that sand worm is advancing something that does generally make sense which is that. In Ukraine for instance, they're trying to make Ukraine look like a failed state. They're trying to make Ukrainians. Lose faith in their security. Services are trying to prevent investors globally from funneling money into Ukraine trying to create a kind of frozen conflict, as we say in Ukraine where there's this constant perpetual state of degradation. They're not trying to conquer the country, but they're trying to create a kind of permanent war in Ukraine and would cyber war. You can do that beyond the traditional front end. It is in some ways the same kind of tactic that they used in other places like the US which. which here we saw more than influence operation that they were hacking leaking organizations like democratic campaign organizations and anti doping organizations to kind of so confusion to embarrass on their targets. They're trying to influence like the international audiences opinion these people, but in Ukraine, it is in some ways, just a different kind of influence operation where they're trying to influence the world's view of Ukraine. Influence Ukrainians view of their themselves under government to make them feel like they are in a war zone even when their kid hundreds of miles from the actual fighting. That's happening on the eastern fronts in the eastern region of. Of Ukraine so in a book you you you go to Kiev. You spent time in Ukraine. Is there a sense in that country that while sometimes light goes out sometimes our TV stations. Their computers don't boot anymore. Because they got rewritten, the Hydros got Zeros like. Is there a sense that this is happening? Is there a sense the defy back is there does Microsoft deploy you know dozens of engineers to to help fight back. How does that play out on the ground there? Yeah, I mean to be fair. Ukrainians are very stoic about these things and regular. Ukrainian citizens were not bothered by you know. Know a short blackout. They didn't particularly care you know. This blackout was the first ever. Hacker induced blackout in history but Ukrainian cyber security. People were very unnerved by this end, people in these actual utilities were traumatized I mean these attacks were truly like relentless sins very kind of scary for the actual operators at the controls I mean in the first blackout attack. These poor operators Ukrainian control room in western Ukraine they were locked out of their computers, and they had to watch their own mouse cursor. Click through circuit breakers, turning off the power in front of them I. Mean They watched it happen? At these kind of Phantom hands to control of their mouse movements, so they took this very very seriously, but yet Ukrainians as a whole I mean they have seen a lot. They are going through an actual physical war. They've seen the seizure of Crimea and the invasion of the east of the country. You know the the date hits. A Ukrainian general was assassinated with a car bomb in the middle of Kiev, so they have a lot of problems, and I'm not sure that cyber war is one of the top of their minds, but not patio I. Did, actually reach Ukrainians normal. Ukrainian civilians to it. It shook them as well. I talked to two regular Ukrainians. who found that they couldn't swipe into the Kiev Metro. They couldn't use their credit card at the grocery store. All the ATM's were down The Postal Service was taken out for every computer that the postal service had was taken out for more than a month. I mean these things really did affect people's lives, but it kind of. A until that kind of climactic worm. Not Patio for I think for this to really reach home for Ukrainians. who have kind of seen so much. How do you fight back? I, mean I one of things that struck me as I was reading. The book is so many of the people you talked to people who are identifying the threat. They're actually private companies. Eyesight was the first even detect it. they are contractors to intelligence agencies the military in some cases, but they're not necessarily the government right like it's not necessarily Microsoft. Who has to issue the patches from the software not necessarily GE which makes simplicity, which is the big industrial controls talk about a lot. How does all that come together into a defense because that seems like harder problem of coordination? Yeah, I mean defense in Cyber. Security is in an eternal problem. It's incredibly complicated, and when you have a really sophisticated determined adversary, it know they will win eventually ends I. think that they're absolutely lessons for defense in this book about you know. Maybe you need to really really think about software updates for instance like the kind that were hijacked to a with this medoc accounting software. As a vector for terrible cyber-attacks. Imagine that like. Any of your insecure apps that have kind of updates can be become a a piece of Malware, really unique to signature networks need to think about patching on. There are just an endless kind of checklist of things to every organization needs to do to protect themselves so. In some ways that just like a Sisyphean task and I don't. I don't try to answer that question in the book because it's too big, and it's kind of boring as well, but what I do really hammer on is the thing that the government's really could've done here. which is to try to establish norms tried to control attackers through diplomacy through kind of disciplinary action through things like kind of Geneva Convention for Cyber War if. If you think about a kind of analogy to say like chemical weapons, we could just try to give everyone in the world a gas mask that they have to carry around with them at all times, or we could create a Geneva. Convention norm that chemical weapons should not be used in if they are than crime, and you get pulled in front of the Hague. Hague and we've done the ladder and I think that in some ways should be part of the the answer to cyber war as well we need to establish norms and make countries like Russia or like organizations like the G. Are you understand that there will be consequences for these kinds of attacks, even when the victim is not the US or NATO or the? The EU and I think we're only just starting to think about that. One of the questions I had as reading is it seems like a very clear red line for almost everyone you talk to is attacks on the power grid right? That is just unacceptable. You should not do it if you do it. You've crossed a line and there should be some consequence. Is, that clear to governments. Is that something that our government says? It's something that the says it has been established. It seems like it's it's the conventional wisdom wants to salvage, but I'm not unclear whether that is actually the line that exists. It definitely has not been established, and when I kind of did these I managed to get sort of interviews with the top cyber security officials in the Obama ends trump administration Jay Michael Daniel was the cyber. Cyber Coordinator for the administration was the kind of cyber coordinator boss in the The Homeland Security Adviser for trump and both of them when I asked him about like wiped. Why didn't you know to put it bluntly like? Why didn't you respond? When Russia caused blackouts in Ukraine? Both of them essentially said well. You know that's not actually the rule that we want to set. We want to be able to cause blackouts in our adversaries networks. In their power grids when we are in a war situation or when we believe it's in our national interest, so you know that's the thing about these cyber war capabilities. This is part of the problem that every country. Absolutely the US among them isn't really interested in controlling these weapons, because we in this kind of Lord of the rings fashion, we are drawn to them to like we want to maintain the ability to use those weapons ourselves and nobody wants to throw this ring in the fires, of Mount Doom. We all wanted maintain the ring and imagine that we can use it for good in out. So that's why neither administration called that Russia for doing this because they want that power to. Make the comparison to to nuclear weapons but Negotiated drawdown and treaties with Russia in the past we count warheads where aware that the United States stockpiles can destroy the world. Fifty Times over today maybe tomorrow one hundred hundred like what we have a sense of the the measure of force that we can. Put on the world when it comes to nuclear weapons, there's a sense that Oh, we should never use these right like we have them as a deterrent, but we've gained out that actually leads to his mutually assured destruction like there's an entire body of academics. There's entire body of researchers. Entire body is got scenario planning with that kind of weapon. Does that same thing exist for for cyber weapons. There are absolutely. Know community is of academics. Policymakers who are thinking about this stuff now, but I don't think it's kind of gotten through to actual government decision. that. There needs to be kind of cyber deterrence in how that would work. In in the comparison to nuclear weapons is like instructive, but not exactly helpful. In fact, it's kind of counter-productive because we cannot deter cyber-attacks with other cyber-attacks i. don't think that's GonNa work in part because we haven't even tried to establish it yet. There are no kind of rules or read lines, but then I think more importantly. Everybody thinks that they can get away with cyberattacks that they can. They're going to create a false flag. That's clever enough that that when they blow up a power grid, they can blame their neighbor instead, so they think they're. They're gonNA. Get Away with it, and that causes them to do it anyway. A not fear the kind of assured destruction so I think that the the right response, the way to to deter cyber attacks is not with the promise of a cyber attack in return. It's with all the other kind of tools we have, and they've been used sometimes, but but they were not in the case of Sand Werman. Those tools include like sanctions which came far too late in the story indictments of hackers. In some cases, we still haven't really seen syndrome. Hackers indicted for the things that they did in Ukraine or or even not petty. And then ultimately just kind of messaging like calling out naming and shaming bad actors, and that has happened to some degree with Sandra, but in some cases there have still been massive failures there there has still been no public attribution of the Sandwich attack on the twenty eighteen Olympics I mean. My Book has been out for months. I think show pretty clear evidence that syndrome is responsible for this attack. The very least it was Russia and yet the US and Korean War, These Olympics took place at UK, none of these governments have named Russia as having done that. That attack which almost just invites them to do it again whenever our next Olympics are going to be, I guess maybe not this year, but if you don't send that message than you're just essentially inviting Russia to try again so I think might my big question is what happens now? I mean right we you write about. The NSA has tailored access operations, which is their elite hacking group. We are obviously interested in maintaining some of these capabilities. We've come to a place where people are writing books about how it works. What is the next step? What is the next? does it just keep getting worse or does this kind of diplomacy you're talking about? Is that beginning to happen I? Think there is some little glimmers of hope about the diplomacy beginning to happen I mean this year in February I think it was the State Department's called out a sand worm attack on Georgia, where a worms hackers basically took down a ton of Georgian websites by attacking the hosting providers as well as a couple of TV's broadcasters in the US. State Department with a few other governments not. said this was sand. Worm named the unit of the GRU. That's is that was confirmation that I've been looking for for a long time, but they also made a point of saying that we're calling this out is unacceptable, even though Georgia. Georgia is not part of NATO or the U. so that's that's progress. That's essentially creating a new kind of rule. That's state-sponsored. Hackers can't do certain things, no matter who the victims and that's really important. Also, it was kind of interesting because federal officials like gave me a heads up about that announcement before happened, which they have very very rarely do and I think they were trying. To say was in we. We read your book and we. Got The message okay like Stop attacking us about this like we're trying. We're doing something different here I. Don't want flatter myself that I actually changed their policy, but it did seem interesting that they wanted to tell me personally about this so i. I think that like maybe our stance on this kind of diplomacy is evolving, and we're learning lessons, but at the same time we also see the attacks evolving to. To and their new innovations in these kinds of disruption happening, we've seen since some of these terrible Sandra attacks. You know other very scary things like this piece of our called Triton or crisis that was used to disabled safety systems in a oil refinery in Saudi Arabia on that was you know that could have caused an actual physical explosion of petrochemical facility? The the attacks are evolving to okay final last real question. Tell people where they can get your book. You can find all kinds of places by on indie Greenberg Dot net. Written another book as well previously, yes. That's right. I wrote a book about wikileaks. Cypher punks and things like that. That's right well. I'm a huge fan. It was an honor to talk to you. Thank you so much for coming on I know it's. It's a weird time to be talking about anything, but the coronavirus I was very happy to talk about something else, which is that it seems a little bit more in control Even if it is quite dangerous, a thank you for the time. I appreciate it. Yeah, I'm glad to provide people with a different kind of apocalypse as a distraction.
Microsoft pushes fix for two vulnerabilities in the Windows Codecs Library
"US cert posted last a Tuesday on June thirtieth. Microsoft has released information regarding vulnerabilities and they're oddly low numbered so apparently Microsoft is known of them for a while there twenty, twenty, fourteen, twenty, five and fourteen, fifty seven, the CV designations in Microsoft, Windows Codex Library. they said this contains updates that are rated as critical. Remote attackers leveraging these vulnerabilities may be able to execute arbitrary code for more information. The vulnerabilities please refer to the information provided by Microsoft and of course it's like Oh. What's this because again? This was this is out of cycle this. This is the end of the end of June. They didn't even feel they could wait. A couple of weeks until July's updates apparently so. Both of the advisories on Microsoft's site have the same title Microsoft Windows Codex Library Remote Code Execution. Vulnerability that's for for fourteen, twenty, five, fourteen, fifty, seven, and the disclosures are almost identical. But of course at this point, our listeners are low longer surprised to learn of a fatal flaw in a media Kodak as we know Codex. Are Complex interpreters. Of a compressing encoders Meta data. it's truly difficult to make a Kodak both screamingly fast as they need to be, and also careful at the same time, being super careful means checking everything and checking everything takes precious time when a Kodak is by its nature, often racing the clock. So, what made these? Stand out aside from the fact that they were once again patches for an out of cycle, critical, remote code. Execution Vulnerability and the second one is an information disclosure. Was the fact that Microsoft indicated that the updates would not. Be available through windows update north through windows update catalog. No these updates would be provided through. The Microsoft store. And as well as like what? Users are instructed to click on the little white shopping bag. On the windows, ten task bar and I'll note that none of my windows. Ten task bars have little white shopping bags. But that's another story. Then you select more downloads updates and then get updates. In their disclosure. Microsoft wrote a remote code execution. Vulnerability exists in the way that Microsoft Windows. Library handles objects in memory. Okay, no surprise there. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could execute Arbor Schroeder. Code Right? And the other one a slight variation, same boilerplate, an attack who successfully exploited the second vulnerability could obtain information to further compromise the user system. And in either case they say the exploitation of the vulnerability requires a program process a specially crafted image file right so it's the evil image, which is what you'd expect a Kodak to Barf on. The update addresses the vulnerability by correcting how Microsoft Windows Codex Library handles objects in memory. Then, they wrote. Affected users will be automatically updated box Microsoft store. And according to Microsoft's users who want to receive the update immediately can check for updates with the Microsoft store APP. That's the clicking on the little white. Bag that I talked about before. And I was thinking about this. I suppose it makes sense for store APPs and extensions that are sourced by the store. Even when they are provided by Microsoft to be updated through the channel that the user. Used for their original delivery, and that's especially the case for third party. APPs being updated mean. Microsoft would not want to be hosting updates. Of Third Party APPS through their own operating system and APP update channels to the windows update and the update catalog. So the store it is. Both updates were privately reported and are not known to be used in the wild, so it's not clear to me why the emergency but the fact that it was on the thirtieth, which was a Tuesday as I right? Yeah, it was a Tuesday. maybe that was a deliberate like store patch Tuesday new thing that is going to be happening. The problems exist in. Excuse me. The H., E. V. C. video extensions and they're not free, surprisingly ninety nine cents if you want that from the Microsoft store. Maybe a You'll you'll get them. As part of an of another package provided there, there's like actually two different instances of H. E. C. on the store once for ninety nine cents and one says it's provided by other software. The FCC extension apparently not very popular read only two and a half out of five stars and Microsoft's description says play high efficiency Video Kodak. That's what HIV stands for. In any video, APP, on your windows, ten device, these extensions they say are designed to take advantage of hardware capabilities on some newer devices, including those with these Intel seventh generation, core, processor, and newer GPU to support four K and ultra HD content. They said for devices that don't have hardware support for H. E. V. C. so a software Kodak to enhance what you have on your system. and. This was sort of a new designation for me. And actually. We've already gone to the to the Kodak beyond this, but wikipedia explains the HEC. This high efficiency video coding is also known as H. Dot, two, six, five, and also MPC age part two video compression standard designed as part of the M Peg h project as a successor to the widely used ABC. which is what everybody is now using that's H. Dot, two six four, which is MP for ten, so and and wikipedia finished in comparison to ABC H.. E. V. C. offers from twenty five to fifty percent, better data compression, the same level of video quality, giving it substantially improved the equality at the same bit rate. Okay so. if you're curious to know, and it turns out, you may need to be curious whether your system or any system might have the H.. Video! Extensions installed. And, if so, which version you, there is a power. Shell Command the which will tell you, so you'd open power shell. Probably do it with Admin because why not and then it's I, have I have the command in the show notes if you're interested, but it's get high hyphen APP x Package Space Dash Name Space Microsoft Dot H.. E. V. C. video extension. When I entered that into my win ten machine. I got nothing. It was just blank in return, but the repaired versions of the HVAC extensions one point zero point. Three one, eight, two, two dot, zero or three, one, eight, two three dot zero. and so since I don't have a my power shell just exited returning nothing. Some commentators have observed that this new. Store Windows store channel for releasing critical updates outside of the normal window security update distribution channels. Though I noted I could see why it happened. It made sense is understandable, can cause trouble in enterprise settings where certain windows features and windows store. Probably. I would imagine the store more than anything else may have been deliberately disabled by enterprise policies, and for such companies who have purposely disabled, the Microsoft store and the Microsoft store automatic up up. Up Updates. Those vulnerable computers will not receive fixes without the removal of that policy and in Fact Computer World's Industry Fixture Woody Leonard. Over in his ask, woody column was far less patient with this and much less understanding that I was about. Like I could understand why that was the windows store. One of the replies to his posting noted that this optional hec Kodak exists by default in Windows clients. Editions since eighteen o nine, except the N. and the lts's editions I do have the Lt Tse. The Long Term Servicing Channel so that explains why my power shall query came a blank. But assuming that's the case. it would be probable then that any normal windows eight, hundred, zero, nine, nine, hundred, zero, three, nine, hundred, Ninety, nine and twenty, four would have the vulnerable Kodak installed. Yet presumably be unable to get it updated if the user or an enterprise had determined that they had no interest in the windows store, and had consequently removed and or disabled, it It's exactly the same as if we could uninstall windows update, which, of course we can't because we need. We need windows updates so. It'll be interesting to see if like what happens with this Woody wound up his post by writing quote. The distribution method is riddled with all sorts of obvious holes. He said I mean anybody with any sort of updating. Experience should have been able to compile a list of half a dozen ways that this could go wrong. And he finished yet another unholy mess, and actually he also he used some of the content in his kgab computer world. Call him where he just really raked windows Microsoft for the debacle of the June windows update with all the printer issue. Basically all the things we've talked about and touched on, but ooh being much less. Forgiving, either even than I am

S. P. my son a lot on his own thank you governor here in town I saw after first couple times of in Berkeley beat I said call Adam I'm not touching that and Adam said she needs a new laptop we walked through it something kind of simple but you know what after after the encounter that so I'm not touch that because if I touched something goes wrong I've been a dark house you're not being yeah you know what is this is something that you're better off on east merit badge I'm gonna tell you what I think you should buy it and then I would go to add and say Adam what do you think because this way it's not you it's gonna be added so if it's anybody's fault I don't I don't know Adam and but I don't like Adam okay so let's just say that it's Adam's fault okay yeah but if you look at something like a dell in spirit great machine right fifteen point six inch screen it's also is a touch screen you can have easily do you don't need a lot of meat a gig around maybe a hundred and twenty eight gig SSD drive right you know the date and dual core I. three processors probably good with some integrated graphics I mean you don't to spend that much you're probably looking at five six hundred Bucks okay I was taking it all lower maybe gets a your your screen she likes to watch for when she was working from home watcher so well you know you can get a bigger screen but then they get heavier so that's just a consideration please wait thank but we're probably gonna be looking at eighty nine dollars problem yes so she wants to be if she does want a bigger screen than you know you can look at the specs and you're right that the the devil is always in the details especially when you start looking at various laptops but if you do want to a bigger screen this is gonna add more weight it's going to add more bulk it's going to get hotter and all that other good stuff you know it it might be okay I'm just gonna throw it out there might be that your buyer five hundred on a laptop and she gets a nice tablet so when she wants to get some work done she gets on her laptop and when she wants to watch shows and do crossword puzzles and get on Facebook and everything else becomes more like an entertainment device that she's got a beautiful tablet could you say your budgets like eight nine hundred Bucks this would actually give her two devices that she can use for different purposes I don't know your wife of which sounds like a lovely person and but again I I don't know Adam and siliceous let's ask Adam what he thinks but run that idea by Adam and so this way if Adams rock it's not you it's not me it's all right let's go ahead and do R.

Yeah even though I'm working with US brand and you know see. Tommy you see a lot of the American flag everywhere and I wanted to remember that. A collaborative Both and also there's just some so much culture here and style and great autism so it was very important me to bring you cool before we go in depth on the collection. I wanted to go further back. Because you know the hard work didn't start with this collection and it goes back many many years to bring you to the position where you can even contemplate doing something like this absolutely so. I never interviewed a race car driver before so educate me and little. How how. How does someone become a race car driver? How does that even happen So I mean we kind of stumbled across it in the sense that so I started racing when I was eight K. My parents with us to live with my dad on the weekends. My Dad was you know this kind of Awkward Guys I. What do I do this little kitten? You know like a lot. Dads are and the thing that I loved loved. 'cause so as left car is crazy about cars as a little boys are in yeah and So that tons of toy cars. I used to Had A little radio control car and the actual like the initial point was I was full and our next door neighbor from the one bedroom. Flat that we lived in in Hatfield He built models of boats and he had built this radio control car. He was driving in cocking on the road and he came over and join. Do you WanNa go and I was like yes about two and I remember driving this thing and I was really good remote control car. Everybody was really quick. Yeah 'cause a big one that believe for thousands four year old able to control this little car with a joystick controllers and so then he bought me one and we started racing four hours racing against people of our age. Who's young establish Over ten years and and I remember to watch the racetrack. You stand on the podium to look down upon it and to to go with the Kind of defense to the over. I had to stand on like three D. A. K. cases and racing. These guys who you know. Spend their hard earned in to raise these. Cause and unbeaten imagine how angry these look. These guys were Still four yards five years beaten. Us Am anyways my dad than was like Hayes head to Akron Coordination's clearly very great and I think he was talking to someone. That's why didn't try to go when I was five. I went to Spain with my dad and we came across a go kart track and that was the first time I drove a car and again that was natural so I thought my dad bought me one from an old newspaper. The back pages was V fifth hand yet villain by like five. Six families really bent and crooked and rusty and stuff. My Dad resprayed woods Stuff like diy still like being Hewlett was and then we entered some races and we one from the one the fresh race. And I loved it. Some I if you do you keep working out at school will do whatever. I can't keep racing. We WanNa First Championship when I was ten and the rest is history silent. Us Thirteen by full monty. Youngest EVER TO BE SUCCESSFUL. Is that one day. We Start Recruiting People. That time right but now they do so. I was the youngest ever to be signed. And also you know. This sport never been diverse. Yeah was gonNA say because you didn't come from like a privileged background. It's a very expensive sport. It really is. So what was that like for you? It was? It was really for me as a kid I was. I was having fun in A. Yeah we go to school in my weekend. I'm going to my friend's house devastated by Rhonda Right and I loved it so much am but my dad was really hot for my family. My Dad remortgaged had to remortgage house. God knows how many times He had four jobs at one stage in the early stages which sounds crazy because there was no future plan for us you know but it was just hoping that we love doing but it was getting more and more expensive How can I? How can I make money to pay for the tires this weekend? How can I keep the call going? Nowhere weekends wells like aside to do a race number desert. I'm I'm sorry. I've done the money this weekend. So He's been the the one of the most infamous stepmom. She's coming to a new relationship as a kid there and she gave up her life. Saving and belief and the commitment was just. It's so special to the real story is not the success that I've had that that people from working in a working class families can really relate to dance. Who Don't know what to do with his. You see people out there today. Support naked on the side of football pitches the same the same thing and there's not a lot of Jarvis data have that background so as the Honda to a lot of people to relate to. But that's the one. I'm trying to make sure that people know because we came from nothing you can do it with a lot of hard work and of course you've got to have fortune on the way in the sense of meat if I didn't meet the boss of the four one team a win of signed and without that signing I would have made it because we would add money. Have you seen cool runnings? Yeah Yeah of course. You know my favorite that took place in Calgary. Yes I grew up in. Calgary did yes. I was there for Olympic no way where the Jamaican bobsled team shown. Yeah Wow and I got two weeks off of school does those. I was in the opening ceremonies. Actually no way so I spent the whole and we were obsessed with that to make him pops team no way. Yeah the the W tops. 'cause I was I was like I don't know in one thousand nine seventy five thousand nine hundred eighty eight. I was thirteen years old but yeah I remember that team. Why Cool runnings? I'm just remember watching cool. Runnings Is My favorite movie and causes. So just the most relatable story that had as a kid so I always relate a lot my life to that movie casino. They arrive this rust bucket at the top of the hill. For the first time they put out and everyone everyone goes quiet and I always relate to light me. My Dad arriving you know would race track the race rapid he would say with trump's because of you know what we have these great close the 'cause shoved Shoved in the back of the boot of vodka and we be picking up on the floor and it looks doesn't look good and A lot of people looking us like what they doing here. You know because again. It wasn't a diverse group. Is it always been a white dominated sport however there was in in the early stages there are there were some other families are trying but they would have they run out of money but So a lot of that you know we just did our talking on the track as they did in the Post said they kept. They didn't win over the nitty. Did they narrowly people's Hopkins? Yeah they did. But you've you've gone on and you become you know without exaggeration. A living legend in your field six F one titles the first one at the age of twenty three youngest ever at the time. What what did you learn about achieving success at such a young age at such an elite level? What does it take? Yes you had some lock. You had clearly got a gift incredibly supportive home environment but at the end then again it comes down to your dedication and and then the focus on what you wanted. Yeah talk to me a little bit about that. It was really difficult out. Search the journey. I think people generally seem to own see the tip of the iceberg. Don't know if you've ever seen an iceberg unknown. How big is beneath the huge? Yeah and there's a picture I found that shows you the success one sees this little bit on the top underneath his world however is so you know. I'm people tune in today and see someone that's one times in the championships and 'em probably not fully aware of how it's taken me years Windows Eight. Danton pro to those twenty two and when I got two phone one so the build up to it. It's just not prepared. You prepare to race. Don't get any preparation tons of media training. You don't get prepare repression tons of what you know. No-one said this is what's going to happen when people start seeing on TV. And that because that's a real shock to the system and Am working no this when you work with a big station when his thousand people behind you working to make your decisions out on the track impact every single one of those you know so if you're selfish Choices and you make mistakes and crash. Everyone feels it. Sure there was a it was a lot of pressure but And again being that we came in every conversation so you the first year the first back from one driver. This never been here again. No diversity in it's only me my dad really people of Color in the in in this which is quite felt alone. A little bit in that sense But it was a great platform for us to do something great and

Microsoft Warns of a Monster Computer Bug
"No lack of computer bugs this week. And apparently Microsoft is next in line with a new warning. The Wall Street Journal's Charlie Turner has more. A warning for Microsoft. If your computer has an older version of the windows operating system, you should know that your machine could be affected by a monster. Computer bug. Microsoft says the bug has been patched, but it could wind up being exploited by militias software or malware. The bug is one of several high profile computer security issues to emerge this week. Let's get more from Bob mcmillen of the Wall Street Journal. Who's in San Francisco, Bob, you write that this is similar to the wannacry worm, which spread globally two years ago. Well, okay. So the bug behind it is similar to the bug behind the wannacry, worm. So there's a problem within Microsoft's operating system that if you're on a like a local network, you know, network in your office, or something like that. You the there's a service that connects computer. On that network. And that has a bug in it now that, that would allow somebody who wrote some software that was militias like say, the wannacry warm to write software that would explode this new bug and go from computer to computer within your local area network within your within your office, and what we found out with one cry is that even though in theory, these kinds of worms should be stopped at the firewall, you know, and not leave office. They did that during the wannacry outbreak. And so people are concerned that, if this bug were exploited by somebody who wrote say, ransomware that travelled around, it could it could affect a lot of computers. Wannacry affected at least two hundred thousand computers and then it was stopped the creators of it put like a kill switch in it. Basically a way of stopping the worm from spreading, and somebody activated that which stopped it, it could have been much worse. What versions of windows does this? Effect. You know as I was talking just now I realize, it's the version that my parents have windows, seven, and I need to give them a call right after this interview, so windows, seven is getting long in the tooth. That's probably the main the main supported version of windows, that people are going to have an need to worry about windows, the newer versions windows, eight and windows ten or not affected by this. But if you have windows seven or older, so even if you're for some reason, still running windows, X P, then you're at risk now. This is interesting because windows, XP is what they call it unsupported operating system. They don't Microsoft doesn't release bugs fixes for windows, XP anymore. But in this case, they're doing it just because they think the bug that is that is that serious shouldn't people upgrade to the new versions, or the newest version of windows as soon as possible. Hey, come on, if you're running x p really hang your head down, and go over to best fi-, it's time time to upgrade
