Oracle Updates, miniFlame, and Steam Hack
There was once a time when I had to subscribe to many obscure mailing lists, lurk on underground forums and channels, and visit a ton of buried pages at vendor sites to learn about the latest vulnerabilities, exploits, and breaches. That’s no longer the case.
Today, mainstream media reports on more information and network security news every week than most IT administrators can keep up with. Thus, this weekly security news round-up video. We consolidate and concentrate all the most important security stories into one digestible video each week—throwing in some practical security tips along the way.
This week’s episode includes security updates from Oracle and Apple, a new advanced nation-state threat called miniFlame, and a few fun security stories involving popular gaming platforms and zombie apocalypses. Watch the video below for quick highlights, and check out the Reference section for more details.
Thanks for watching, and keep frosty out there.
