Decipher Podcast: Andy Greenberg


Andy Greenberg of Wired magazine joins Decipher Editor-in-Chief Dennis Fisher to discuss his in-depth cover story on the NotPetya malware outbreak of 2017 that masqueraded as ransomware but actually destroyed the networks of a number of large corporations and caused billions of dollars in damages. The attack was centered in Ukraine but victims included huge companies such as Merck, Maersk, and FedEx, as well as small hospitals and government agencies around the world. Andy spent months reporting and writing the piece and he shares details of how he got into the story and what the most surprising elements of it were.
