Risky Business #152 -- Playing in the sandbox with Mark Dowd
Our feature next guest this week Azimuth Security's Mark Dowd.
Mark is widely regarded as one of the best vulnerability researchers in the industry. He's published remote flaws in software like Sendmail and SSH, he's even created new classes of bugs. Remember that cross platform Flash bug a while ago? That was him, too.
Symbian still requires signing. I think he mixed up Nokia's Maemo Linux platform, which does not require signing, with Symbian. He might be right that open Linux platforms are the way of the future.
Thanks for pointing that out, Anon... I don't know if he's right about complex, open platforms being the way of the future. Us geeks tend to think the mass market wants flexibility, but I think most people are happy with a browser, office apps, media player, IM, Skype and a mail client.
But we'll see!
