WatchGuard Security Week in Review: Episode 39 – RDP Hostages

Hostage RDP Servers, Pin Pad Hacks, and PS3 Key Leak

Are you ready for some Friday water-cooler security gossip? Did you hear about a bunch RDP servers at Fortune 500 companies getting hacked? How about the story about Dutch law enforcement legally hijacking suspect computers? If not, you’ve come to the right place. I cover those stories and more in today’s WatchGuard Security Week in Review video.

This week’s video comes to you from the road. During the week, I attended Gartner’s Symposium ITxpo, where Gartner analysts covered the trends driving IT innovation. The four main topics included the Cloud, Mobile, Social, and Big Data; many of which match our security predictions themes from this year. In any case, today’s episode is slightly abbreviated due to my travels.

If you are interested in this week’s big RDP hack, a Barnes and Noble pin pad breach, and even a “pwned” gaming console, check out the video below. You can also find links to all the stories I cover in the Reference section of this post.

Thanks for watching, and have a great weekend.
