WatchGuard Security Week in Review: Episode 15

Major US Cyber Legislation, VMware Source Code Leak, and Hotmail Hacks

This week’s security news round-up video is full of scary Cyber legislation, major network and organization breaches, and a couple of important security updates. If you’re too busy to follow the barrage of security news every day, let WatchGuard’s Security Week in review video summarize it for you.

Would you rather read? No problem. You’ll find links to all these stories in the reference section.

By the way, this week’s stories continued to develop as I produced this episode. Unfortunately, I had to sneak in a quick video update about the CISPA bill during production. I won’t give it all away, but I can say CISPA is one step closer to reality. Watch below for details. (Episode Runtime: 6:54)

WatchGuard Security Week in Review: Episode 14

Oracle CPU Update, Another Mac Trojan, and 20,000 Infected Websites

This week I’ve been traveling in Denmark and Finland, speaking at various security events, which make this week’s WatchGuard Security Week in Review an “on the road” edition. In this very short episode, I quickly cover this week’s big Oracle Critical Patch Update (CPU), yet another mac trojan, and a story about Google warning web administrators about web site infections. Check out the video below for the quick highlights

You’ll find links to the stories in this episode below. Feel free to share thoughts and suggestions in the comments section, and share these videos with your friends. I’ll be back next week with a more regular length episode. (Episode Runtime: 3:50)

WatchGuard Security Week in Review: Episode 13

Flashback Follow-up, Lots of Patches, and MBR Ransomware

In this week’s video, I follow up on Flashback developments, cover the various security updates that came out this week, and warn you about two new interesting malware variants that change their targets or techniques. There’s a lot to learn, so check out this week’s WatchGuard Security Week in Review video below.

For those not interested in video, I share links to all this week’s stories in the Reference section. I had originally intended to cover a few government-related news items in this week’s video, too. However, I decided to cut them due to time. If you’re interested in the new U.S. cyber security act and an interesting new Stuxnet development, I’ve included extra links to those stories as well.

As always, I’d love to hear how to improve these videos, so feel free to leave comments and pass these videos on to your friends and co-workers. (Episode Runtime: 5:57)

Ready to finish off your week with a quick summary of the week’s security news? If so WatchGuard Security Week in Review is for you.

WatchGuard Security Week in Review: Episode 10

Georgian Botnets, Mac Trojans, and Carberp… Oh My.

I saw so many interesting security stories this week that it was hard to decide which ones to choose for the episode, while still keeping it short. So instead, I concentrated on two themes: interesting new malware and positive security stories. If you’d like to hear about botnets that steal RDP configs, sneaky Mac malware, cybercriminal arrests, and more, check out WatchGuard Security Week in Review below.

If you’d prefer to read rather than watch or listen, the Episode Reference guide at the bottom of this post links to articles on these stories.

With such a security news-filled week, today’s episode was at risk of running long. So I had to whack a few stories. However, I did want to share a free security tool recommendation (since some viewers liked this idea). If you’d like to hear about a free tool that will help keep your PC up to date, be sure to keep watching after the credits. (Core Episode Runtime: 9:52. Optional 2 minute extra at the end)
