Risky Business #257 -- Exploits for Win8 no mean feat

Windows internals expert Alex Ionescu talks Win8 security features...
October 5, 2012 -- 

On this week's show we're taking a look at Windows 8 with Alex Ionescu. Alex works for Crowdstrike, he's a genuine expert in Windows internals and he says exploit writing and persistence when it comes to owning windows boxes is about to get a whole lot harder. That's after the news.

This week's show is brought to you by Insomnia Security. Insomnia is a New Zealand-based consultancy founded by Brett Moore. But these days Insomnia is much bigger than Brett. It has six full timers and they're all very clever chaps. Adam Boileau works there, as does this week's sponsor guest Mark Piper! We're chatting to Mark about what "typical" APT attackers get up to. What does the run of the mill APT MO actually look like?

Adam Boileau, as usual, drops by to discuss the week's news headlines. Check out links to the articles we discuss in the show notes page.
