Piles of August Patches – Daily Security Byte EP.124

While there’s lots of interesting security stories I could share today, one of the most practical infosec actions you can take is to keep your software patched.

UPDATE: On Thursday, Apple released a hand full of security advisories and updates as well, fixing flaws in iOS, OS X, and Safari. This wasn’t covered in the video, but check the links below for more info on those updates.
