Tonight Martin is speaking to Josh Corman, Akamai co-worker, and HD Moore, creator of Metasploit and Rapid7 CTO. Josh came up with the idea of HD Moore’s Law a couple of months ago, the idea that the strength of the casual attacker is roughly equivalent to what Metasploit is capable of. If your corporation isn’t capable of defending yourself against Metasploit, you’re not going to be able to defend against these casual attacker and you’re going to be wide open to more sophisticated attackers. Josh explains the concept and what it means to security and HD talks about the fact that Metasploit helps give security teams a measuring stick for their security.
Zach, Rich and Martin are all incredibly busy and are trying to figure out how to fit the podcast into the constraints of our schedules. We may have to skip a number more weeks between now and the end of the year, but we’re trying desperately to get our lives under control.
