After several weeks of travel it's time for me to clear the Chet Chat backlog. I would like to thank everyone who attended my presentations at Texas A&M University, Anatomy of an Attack in Miami, SC World Congress in New York City and SC Congress Canada yesterday in Toronto.
First up is Chet Chat episode 33 where Michael Argast and I went over the latest security buzz on Amazon defending customer privacy, the recent zero day vulnerability in Flash, the OS X Boonana trojan and Facebook coming to terms with applications abusing their policies.
Sophos Security Chet Chat 34 finds Michael and I having a rather detailed conversation about the recent Android browser flaws and the most recent zero day found in Internet Explorer. We also cover Google expanding their program where they pay researchers for discovering vulnerabilities in select products and a recent incident with the TSA and what it means for physical security.
I was also a guest once again on MarketPlace Tech Report on National Public Radio last week. John Moe interviewed me about the implications of running unencrypted WiFi at home. If you felt victimized by the Google Street View fiasco, don't you have a lot more to worry about?
