Risky Business #250 -- Hack it like it's 1999
On this week's show we chat with Recurity Labs' Felix "FX" Lindner and Greg Kopf in the feature segment.
These guys recently shredded some Huawei equipment. They owned it hard and turned it into a DEFCON talk [pdf]. They'll be along a bit later on to tell us why hacking away at Huawei kit made them feel nostalgic.
This week's show is brought to you by the fine folks at Australian pentesting firm HackLabs, so I hope you'll keep them in mind next time you're firing off those RFPs!
HackLabs founder and main man Chris Gatford joins us in this week's sponsor slot to discuss the extremely clever social engineering attack against accounts belonging to technology journalist Mat Honan. he got owned pretty hard. No clientsides, no exploits, no bruteforcing. Just a few phone calls.
Adam Boileau, as always, joins us to discuss the week's news headlines. Grab links to this week's stories in the show notes page here.
