Risky Business #128 -- Metasploit acquired by Rapid7
This week's edition of Risky Business is brought to you by Sophos.
And what a show it is! We've got the exclusive podcast interview with HD Moore, who fills us in on the acquisition of the Metasploit project by Rapid7.
Now, before you GPL freaks run to the shed to dig out the pitchforks and flaming torches, you should hear this interview. The way HD describes it, this acquisition is about the best thing that could have happened to Metasploit.
Can we have the source for that news story about paychoice being compromised and additional "employees" being added?
Looks like Mr. Krebs was first off the line with this story.
Seems PayChoice has had a rough run for the last few years...
Heh I chuckled when I heard this, a mate a few years ago was wardriving in the city and found an open ap that was a pretty big corporate.
Found a heap of public read/write file shares and one particular one called HR that had a large MS Access db called payroll, he had a screenshot next day at work with a few thousand employees names, salary and bank deposit details.
His statement was "all I needed to do was add a few fake ones and an account and I would have been set". He didn't of course as it was the early days of wireless, so he left the admins a message in a text file on how to secure their wireless.
