In this episode:

* A Hackers For Charity T-shirt sighting at Kiwicon, to give you something to smile at.

* More OS X malware: a zombie Trojan called Tsunami and a password stealer called Devil Robber.

* Remembrance Day was dubbed Nerd New Year by nerds who seem to have forgotten that years need four digits.

* The Conficker virus is now three years old but is still seen far and wide by SophosLabs.

* Google promises to stop sniffing your WiFi location - but only if you opt out!

    I love these 60 second security videos. I wish Sophos would post them more often.

    Keep up the good work!
