AusCERT, Aurora Updates, and FPS Hacks
Do you know the latest information security (infosec) buzz? If not, you’ve found the right weekly vlog. Every Friday we post a short video sharing the latest network and information security highlights for your consideration. Today’s episode comes to you from the beautiful Australian Gold Coast, which is why I’ve had to post it a bit late due to travel.
In this episode I share a few highlights from the AusCERT security conference, update you on the old Google Aurora attack, warn about new vulnerabilities affecting many FPS engines, and much more. If you want to stay abreast of the latest network security news, in eight minutes or less, watch the video below.
As always, you can find more detail about the stories from this week’s episode in the Reference section, as well as a few extras.
