Coming up today at 5 CT, 3 PT, the playing of Security Now for the week. This week, tons of news including Steve's talk about the recent outbreak of Wannacry, the latest ransomware and worm. Latest numbers to date indicate that 250,000 computers were effected. http://technology.jaredrimer.net has some information and a few articles on the subject. Once my longer piece is published to vocal, it'll be posted there too. Lots of other news too.
I'll go ahead and repost the notations for your convenience.
SN 612: Makes You WannaCry May 16, 2017, 7:31 PM
Security Now (MP3)
This week Steve and Leo discuss an update on the FCC's Net Neutrality comments, the discovery of an active keystroke logger on dozens of HP computer models, the continuing loss of web browser platform heterogeneity, the OSTIF's just-completed OpenVPN security and practices audit, more on the dangers of using smartphones as authentication tokens, some extremely welcome news on the Android security front, long-awaited updated password recommendations from NIST, some follow-up errata, a bit of tech humor and miscellany, closing the loop with some listener feedback... then a look at last week's global explosion of the WannaCry worm.
Fun starts this afternoon at 5. Thanks for listening!
