You know about malware, ransomware, spyware. But there's an increasing concern about stalkerware, a creepy breed of apps that allow someone else to digitally monitor you. What is stalkerware all about and how can you recognize it? Who plants it and why, and who are its victims? Joining the show are Eva Galperin, director of cyber security at the Electronic Frontier Foundation who also helped found the Coalition Against Stalkerware, and Anthony Melgarejo, threat researcher in F-Secure's Tactical Defense Unit.

Today's episode features the amazing Eva Galperin, and we're talking about stalkerware, surveillance and Tik Tok.⁠ ⁠

Back in 2018, Eva tweeted "“If you are a woman who has been sexually abused by a hacker who threatened to compromise your devices, contact me and I will make sure they are properly examined”. ⁠ ⁠

Her tweet was retweeted more than 10,000 times, and she was inundated with responses from people who had experienced abuse.⁠ ⁠

We talk about her work to eradicate stalkerware, and what she's working on in her role heading up the Threat Lab at the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

Eva is Electronic Frontier Foundation's Director of Cybersecurity. Prior to 2007, Eva worked in security and IT in Silicon Valley and earned degrees in Political Science and International Relations from SFSU. ⁠ ⁠ Her work is primarily focused on providing privacy and security for vulnerable populations around the world. To that end, she has applied the combination of her political science and technical background to everything from organising EFF's Tor Relay Challenge, to writing privacy and security training materials (including Surveillance Self Defense and the Digital First Aid Kit), and publishing research on malware in Syria, Vietnam, Kazakhstan. When she is not collecting new and exotic malware, she practices aerial circus arts and learning new languages.⁠ ⁠
