WatchGuard Security Week in Review: Episode 19

Facebook Malware, SecureID Hack, and DoJ Breach

Another week, another security summary video… This week, I clue you in on two new Facebook-related malware attacks, some new research that allows local attackers to clone SecureID tokens, and a major Anonymous-related breach that has put 1.7 gigabytes of Department of Justice data into the hands of the public. Watch the video below for details on these stories and more.

If you have no time for video, you’ll also find links to all this week’s stories in the Reference section below; where you can pick and choose whichever topics interest you. Leave your comments if you have any, and I’ll see you again next week.

  1. Good to know about the WatchGuard Security Week in Review: Episode 19

  2. Well I love that this was posted and was a pretty understanding video. I am here to post a few things. All of our links are set to a TOS page each user agree’s to install our software. They get the exetension they download and yes it allows for 1 post per day on a facebook wall. As far as click jacking.. NO!! This does allow unique Ads and Adsense to be ran through it.
    Some of the benifits we have included in this is we added a porn blocker and a popup blocker adding also any and all blacked listed sites and even looked for a heuristic detection for sites running a exploit kit and so forth with a redirect no script ability to keep the user safe.

    So Thanks for the video was cool to see that people are starting to check it out.

  3. Good recommendation of the Nmap6!
