WatchGuard Security Week in Review: Episode 27

Blackhat 2012 Edition

Blackhat Vegas and Defcon are arguably two of the biggest security conferences of the year, where thousands of CSOs, security administrators, and hackers get together to share the latest attack and defense techniques. Blackhat wrapped up last night, and Defcon starts today.

During this week’s security recap, I highlight some of the briefings I attended at Blackhat this year. Topics include strick back, NFC attacks, iOS Security, and a zero day consumer router exploit. Of course, other security news doesn’t stop just because of Blackhat, so I also cover the normal big security stories this week, including a new OS X trojan, another password breach, and an Anonymous strike on Australian ISPs. Watch the YouTube video below for complete details

Since I’m reporting first hand from the Blackhat conference, I can’t provide reference links to the Blackhat stories. You’ll have to check out the video for those details. However, if you’re interested in more information about the non-Blackhat stories, see the Reference section below. As always, feel free to drop us a comment or suggestion at the end of this post.
