Tons of Patches, NSA Booby-Trapped Routers, and Alleged Iranian Hackers
If you don’t have time to follow all the information security stories popping up each week, you can let our weekly video and blog post summarize the important stuff for you.
In today’s show, I recite the big list of security patches you need to get this week, talk about how the NSA is intercepting and hacking routers to foreigners, and weigh in on whether or not the security industry is blaming advanced attacks on “nation-state” actors a bit too freely. Press play on YouTube for all the details, and don’t forget to check out the Reference section for links to other interesting InfoSec stories.
Hope you have a great weekend, and be careful shopping online!
