UDID Leak, Java Attack Updates, and Hacktivist breaches
A few years ago, we’d be lucky to see one major information security story in the news each week. Now, we consistently see more security news than the average IT guy can keep up with. If you’re looking for a quick summary of the most important information and network security news, you’ve come to the right place.
This week’s episode covers two updates to last week’s zero day Java exploit, three stories about hacktivist breaches (including on that involves iPhones and the FBI), and an early notification about next week’s Microsoft Patch Day. I even introduce a new virtualization OS that might excite some security professionals. If you’re interested in the latest security news and tips, press play below.
Since I try to summarize these stories quickly, I often forgo some details. If you want the whole scoop, make sure to check the links below. I’d also appreciate you sharing your comments and questions below, if you have any. If you do have questions, I’ll be sure to read and answer them in an upcoming episode.
