The problem with having a body clock that thinks it’s on the East Coast even when it’s not is that I’m up early no matter what day of the week it is. I’d like to sleep in, but once thoughts of CDN’s and presentations start dancing in my head, it’s time to get up. Which is okay, since there’s a lot to do this weekend before I head to Miami and Hacker Halted on Monday. I’m going to be presenting with my good friend and former colleague, Mike Dahn. Then it’s back home for a few days and off to BSides DFW for a completely different presentation. The next trip after that is with the family, so the only commitments I’ll have is keeping the kids out of trouble.
- Secret iOS business; what you don’t know about your apps – We’re in an age where I phones tattle on us all the time. Or leaking information. Or just plain insecure. Scary, isn’t it?
- HOW TO: Spy on the webcams of your website visitors – If the patch isn’t out already, it should be soon. But I unhooked my webcam already. Mostly because I leave it unconnected.
- New security threat: Infected QR codes – No surprises here. Someone posted huge QR codes at Defcon this year. If you used one, you got to see Goatse pictures. Yay!
- Anyone with a Smart Cover can break into your iPad2 – Along with being able to use Siri without unlocking the 4S, Apple’s made some bad default settings lately.
- AntiSec targeting law enforcement in support of Occupy Wall Street – I think AntiSec is going after police servers because the financial company servers are too hard for them.
A couple late additions, since I’m waiting on the next cup of coffee to be ready:
- How security pros can leverage PCI compliance initiatives – Why aren’t you doing this already?
- Calvin and Hobbes explain Occupy Wall Street – Watterson is an absolute genius!
