Snowden, PowerOffHijack, and Router Phishing – WSWiR Episode 141

From nation state espionage, to Internet rights, to router hijacking emails, each week is packed full on information security (infosec) news. Even if you don’t have time to follow it in depth, you can’t afford to miss the latest intelligence. Let our weekly summary video fill you in.

Today, we cover Snowden’s public interview on Reddit, a dangerous sounding Android threat that’s not so bad, and a spam campaign that’s hijacking Brazilian routers. Press play to learn more, and check out the References for details.

NOTE: Embarrassingly, I wrote this and posted the video on Friday, but forgot to actually publish the blog post. If you subscribe to the YouTune channel you probably already noticed it, but I apologize to blog readers for publishing this post late.
