After powering through the holiday season and keeping the Chet Chat on time, I have stumbled into 2011 and fallen a little behind in posting the latest news, advice, and opinions from the Sophos crew.
Tony Ross joined me again last week to discuss the news and share an interesting story about scammers from Ghana. We discussed the folks in the defense industry who fell for the White House Christmas card malware, the newest Internet Explorer zero day exploit, the recent DDoS attacks against Zimbabwe and Tunisia, the Windows thumbnail zero day, the newest Android trojan, and the latest critical WordPress update.
Paul Ducklin, Head of Technology for Sophos Australia, joined me in our virtual studio for Chet Chat 43. Paul and I talked about the release of Microsoft's January 2011 Patch Tuesday fixes, our first quarter 2011 Dirty Dozen spammiest countries report, the recent Vodaphone data leakage event and Apple's launch of the Mac App Store.
