WatchGuard Security Week in Review: Episode 42 – Vulnerability Markets

Vuln Market 0day, Printer Backdoors, and Downed Internet

We’re back from hiatus. After a two week break, our weekly security news podcast has returned.

This week’s episode covers interesting new malware that leverages new command & control channels or targets specific victims, lots of zero day exploits being sold on vulnerability markets, a security industry murder mystery, and much more. If you’d like the latest information security updates, watch below.

As always, I’ve also included a Reference section, which contains links to all the stories mentioned in the video, as well as a few extra ones. Don’t forget to leave your feedback in our comments section.

Enjoy the show, and see you next week.

    Thank you, Corey. Very interesting review, especially about embedded backdoor in Samsung :-) I think it was created for the troubleshooting, but of course, can be used in a different ways.
