Lookout for Reader Patches – Daily Security Byte EP.80

Adobe typically shares Patch Tuesday with Microsoft, but with Microsoft’s recent announcement to stop monthly patches for Windows 10, Adobe could be patching alone this month. That’s no excuse to miss patches though, so watch today’s video to learn what Adobe  plans to update tomorrow.

By the way, if Microsoft does release patches tomorrow, we’ll be sure to let you know.

PoS Fail and Browser Side-Channel – WSWiR Episode 149

As if every week wasn’t busy enough with new information security (InfoSec) news, this week was the RSA Conference, which brings with it a whole new batch of security news. If you find yourself struggling to keep up, follow my daily or weekly videos to get a quick summary of the latest relevant news.

This week, I was too busy at the RSA Conference to post my daily videos, but you can still catch some of the week’s news in today’s summary episode. In it, I cover the latest updates about the White House breach, I share some interesting tidbits from an RSA PoS security presentation, and I point out some great new research highlighting a side-channel attack that affect most web browsers. Watch the video for the details, and check out the references for more stories.

As an aside, I will be attending another industry conference next week as well, so I may not be able to post my regular Daily Security Byte. However, I’ll still post a weekly video at the very least. I’ll continue with the Daily Bytes the week following next. Have a great weekend, and stay safe out there.
