iOS Charger Hack, Mac Virus, and NetTraveler
After a week hiatus due to WatchGuard’s Worldwide Partner conference, I’m back with another video summary of this week’s biggest security news.
Join me this episode, where I highlight an upcoming Blackhat talk about an iOS charger vulnerability, warn of a proof-of-concept (PoC) OS X virus, and share news about a new APT threat that seems to be stealing important intellectual property. I even throw in the latest software updates as a bonus. For the latest InfoSec news, click the play button below.

Article about Clapzok.A amazed me with statement, that anti-debugging measures (in soft like virus/malware under Mac OS X) are bit trickier to implement due to exception mechanism in Mac OS X…

With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of
plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of
exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears
a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization.
Do you know any solutions to help protect against content
from being stolen? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
