It's Saturday, and that means 60 Second Security, where we aim to touch on some of the more thought-provoking security topics of the past week in just one minute of video.

Why not give this week's video a go? [Higher resolution available directly from YouTube. Click the Captions icon for closed captions.]

In this episode:

  • Facebook suffers a data leakage crisis where information uploaded by X about Y may be downloadable by Z.
  • Canada is the last G8 country to go for anti-spam legislation. Only it just got delayed again. Might be ready by 2014. Or 2017.
  • A Korean graphical designer created an "anti-surveillance" font. It doesn't work, but, hey, it's the thought that counts.
  • And Opera wrote up a "Security attack stopped" incident. Except it was more like "Security attack not stopped."
