Two weeks ago there was no podcast because I was in Chicago. Last
week I was at a clients until late and Rich took the opportunity to
interview Glenn Flieshman from TidBITS and Wi-Fi Networking News.
But this week I’m back and despite rumors to the contrary Rich has not
had me offed so he can take over the podcast. Not that such rumors
really existed, but sometimes it’s fun to start them.
We have a
good show tonight, since there’s a lot going on right now with huge
purchases, web enabled video cameras and security company founders
being arrested. That’s one of the things I love about working in
security: never a dull moment. Of course, that’s often what we hate
about security too.
- DIY WiFi antenna reception boosters – I really built a pair of these, and they really do work
- Masked thieves storm into Chicago colocation (again!)
- I’m vulnerable to Identity Theft – Thanks a lot HMRC – Fellow security blogger David Whitelegg was a victim of his own government.
- Vontu purchased by Symantec for $350 million – No link, but I’m sure you’ll get several in your morning security newsletters.
- SalesForce.com compromised by phishing attacks – Brian Krebs has two very good articles on this (so far)
- Screensaver displays security cam images
- WabiSabiLabi founder arrested in Italy
- Tonight’s music: Reverse Engineering by +nurse
