SSCC 63 – RSA, Sony, Facebook faces and the future of Mac security

Sophos Security Chet Chat 41

Sophos Security Chet Chat logoIn this week’s Chet Chat, Rich Baldry joins me to discuss the future of Mac threats and how many threats are not platform specific.

Rich and I started out discussing the latest developments in the RSA SecurID breach and the importance of users maintaining traditional security mechanisms, like passwords, even if they have a second factor.

Sony’s latest breaches earned a brief mention as well as the recent out-of-band update to Flash Player and next Tuesday’s Microsoft fixes.

We discussed the recent expansion of facial recognition technology on Facebook and ended by talking about the current threat landscape facing Mac users.
