Snowden’s Hacker CV, Uplay Breach, and Serious Android Vulnerability
Last Thursday, US citizens celebrated our 4th of July, Independence Day holiday, which traditionally means that few workers came into the office on Friday. For that reason, I decided to hold onto last week’s InfoSec summary video until today. What better way to start the week than learning about the latest security news with a hot cup of joe.
In last week’s episode, I cover news of Snowden’s hacking credentials, the latest OS X update, a Ubisoft network breach, and a critical security vulnerability that affects 99% of Android users. For the details on those stories and more, watch our video below.
As an aside, I am taking a bit of time off at the end of the week, so I will either skip this Friday’s video, or post a short one on Monday.
