Reality update: A New Paradigm For Cyber Threat Hunting … :
“Threat hunting requires a shift to a post-infection mentality and sets of tools such as SIEM (security incident and event management), EDR (endpoint detection and response) and NDR (network detection and response).

“Hutchins, who is living in Los Angeles on bail, is unable to leave the United States since last year due to his pending criminal charges. Hutchins stormed to fame and hailed as a hero earlier last year when he accidentally stopped a global epidemic of the WannaCry ransomware attack that crippled computers all across the world.“

This is one of the best tools for Google’s broken mobile OS I have ever found. Thanks to my deer friend Dmitri Popov, I am now blocking thousands of Ads I wasn’t even aware of. No root access required, a great tool. You will only need F-Droid for installation, because of course Google and the other big three don’t like this at all.
