Tonight was our first attempt at recording the Network Security Podcast while also streaming it live to the world. As you might have guessed, there were a few minor glitches, but over all things worked out. We plan on streaming most, if not all, of the podcasts from now on, though we don’t think there is any way we can get ourselves coordinated enough to actually record the show at the same time every week. After all, there has to be some randomness to the NSP experience, otherwise it wouldn’t be the NSP. The URL for the streaming audio is http://hak5radio.com:8000/netsecpodcast.mp3.m3u and we’ll try to tweet and post a note at least a couple of hours before the recording in the future.
We were joined tonight by Justin Searle, Kevin Johnson and Jay Beale from Intelguardians. As well as discussing the news stories of the week, the guys were here to tell us about a new LiveCD they’ve developed, Samurai. They saw a hole in the security LiveCD arena and created a Web Testing Framework LiveCD for beginners to learn on and experienced pen testers to use in the real world. Fun stuff, which is why tonight’s podcast went a little long.
- CTO defends researcher’s decision to reveal SCADA exploit – Of course this isn’t at all contentious
- Pentagon researcher unveils Warcraft Terror Plot – Not really, but it could happen. Yeah, right
- DHS Report says leave laptops at home – As if! That’d be like leaving my left arm at home.
- Samurai Web Testing Framework – WTF?
