Lots of Patches, Celebrity Hacks, and a SSL/TLS Weakness
If you’re anything like the average IT professional, you’re probably too busy putting out proverbial IT helpdesk fires, and installing new business IT solutions to spend much time each week staying on top of the latest security news and threats. That’s where we come in! For a quick recap of the biggest information and network security news from the week, check out the YouTube video below.
In this episode, I cover a ton of software updates from the week (it was Patch Day after all), the latest celebrity hack incident, an ironic breach of a security organization’s web site, and yet another weakness in the SSL/TLS encryption protocol. I even share a tip on how webmasters can learn to recover from web site hacks.
