Network Security Podcast, Episode 141

Published by at 4:19 pm under General

It seems that not even my new adventures in parenthood can keep me away from the show. After a much-appreciated 2 week break, it’s good to be back.

This week Martin and I roll through another series of articles covering the week’s security events, after a small divergence to talk about my new daughter (man, is it weird to say that). We start by discussing the resignation of cybersecurity chief Rod Beckstrom over concerns that the NSA is taking over the show. No folks, the NSA isn’t evil, and I don’t think they have a single black helicopter, but it’s probably too orthagonal a mission considering their current mandate. We also discuss the effectiveness of data breach laws, advances in botnets, and the earliest signs of some accountability in PCI. Martin closes the show with a close-call and micro-scare involving his parents and malware.

Note:  The proper name for the malware I mention at the end of the podcast is Spyware Remover 2009.  (Martin)
