Wow, it’s been 100 daily videos already?!
I started this daily security video experiment in January of this year, and though I haven’t been able to cover every single day, we’ve had quite a ride of InfoSec related stories so far. If you find this daily post useful, or if you have suggestions on ways we might improve it to fit your needs, let us know.
Meanwhile, the InfoSec news doesn’t pause despite the 100th episode. Today, I cover two mobile platform related security vulnerabilities. One actually affects all Apple’s OSs (OS X & iOS) while the other affects Samsung Android devices. Watch today’s episode to learn about these new threats, and what you should do about them.
(Episode Runtime: 4:10)
