Backdoors and Watering Holes – WSWiR Episode 162

Cyber security has become mainstream. Nowadays, there’s more information security (infosec) stories each week than the average IT professional can keep up with. If you find yourself falling behind, let our daily and weekly videos keep you informed. If you watch my Daily Security Bytes, you can probably skip this weekly summary. However, if you prefer to recap the week in one go, this video is for you.

This week’s episode includes surprising new updates to the Ashley Madison hack, a backdoor in a bunch of consumer routers, and a watering hole attack targeting the EFF. Watch the video below for the scoop, and check out the references section for more.

Show Note: A couple notes this episode. First, while I posted last week’s summary video to YouTube, I was not able to blog about it due to my early week travel. If you missed it, you can view it here, or just subscribe to my YouTube channel to see my videos right when they come out. 

Also, I will be traveling in Europe all week to attend WatchGuard partner conferences. I will try to post some videos, but I probably won’t get to one every day, and will post them at unusual times.
