WatchGuard Security Week in Review: Episode 29

New APT Attack, Honan Hack, and Upcoming Updates

This week was rife with security news, including two pretty big, headline-grabbing security stories. I cover them both — and more — in this week’s WatchGuard Security Week in Review.

Today’s episode shares the fascinating details about how a hacker leveraged cloud security problems to destroy the online life of a Wired journalist, highlights a new nation-state sponsored cyber threat targeting Lebanese banks, and warns about next week’s upcoming security patches. If you hold even a modicum of interest in how to stay safe on-line, click play on the video below.
