SSCC 100 - John McAfee, OS X malware, Swiss intel, NASA laptops and Romanian carders

Filed Under: Featured, Podcast

Sophos Security Chet Chat logoChester finally brings up his century with Chet Chat Episode 100 - the Benjamin Franklin edition!

(For readers not familiar with US history and culture, Benjamin Franklin was not only one of America's Founding Fathers, but also also a tireless scientist, engineer and inventor. His likeness appears on the US $100 banknote, which is where the "century" connection comes in.)

Chet's guest in the 100th Chet Chat is Paul Ducklin.

The pair discuss a range of recent security issues:

• John McAfee and geolocation data - advice for non-fugitives.

• Website with Dalai Lama connection hit with Mac malware - making sense of the risk to OS X.

• Swiss intelligence agency in huge data theft - terabytes worth!

• NASA loses yet another laptop - find out what they're doing to prevent (yet another) repeat.

• Romanian carders hack 500,000 Australian credit cards - but law enforcement strikes back.
