Risky Business #428 -- Cross-platform Tor Browser pwnership with Ryan Duff

September 22, 2016 -- On this week's show we'll be chatting with security researcher Ryan Duff about the rabbit hole that is the Tor Browser Bundle certificate pinning bug. The bug itself is interesting, but the questions it raises about how suitable Tor is for genuinely critical use are, you know, substantial. That's a really, really interesting chat with Ryan Duff, coming up after the news.

Risky Business #427 -- Cahill law partner Brad Bondi on MedSec suit

September 15, 2016 -- We have a great feature interview this week. Risky Business contributor Brian Donohue spoke with Cahill law firm partner Brad Bondi about the suit St Jude Medical has brought against MedSec and Muddy Waters over the short-sell of the medical device manufacturer's shares. That is an illuminating chat that certainly gave me an understanding of where this all could be heading, both in terms of the upcoming trial and how likely it is we'll see similar stuff in the future.

Risky Business #426 -- House Oversight Committee drops OPM breach report PLUS St Jude sues MedSec

September 8, 2016 -- In this week's feature interview we chat with Stephen Ridley about all things IoT. Stephen is a researcher turned entrepreneur and he'll be along to talk about the platform consolidation we're going to see when it comes to "things". Once that settles, he argues, we'll get a better idea of the security risks we should really, actually be worried about.

In this week's sponsor interview we're chatting with Simon Galbally at Senetas.

Risky Business #425 -- MedSec CEO Justine Bone on the Muddy Waters short

September 1, 2016 -- On this week's show we've landed what looks to be a fairly exclusive interview -- at least as far as the tech press is concerned. Justine Bone will be joining us to explain why the company she works with, MedSec, decided to use vulnerability information on implantable medical devices to drive a short-selling scheme in partnership with Muddy Waters.

This week's show is sponsored by Tenable Network Security. We're doing something a bit different in this week's sponsor interview -- we're chatting with one of Tenable's customers, City of San Diego CISO Gary Hayslip.

Risky Business #424 -- Jess Frazelle on Docker. So hot right now.

August 25, 2016 -- On this week's show we chat with Jessie Frazelle. Jessie is a former Docker maintainer who now works at Google on all things "containery". So we talk to her about what's up with containers, basically, and where the security pitfalls are. Like it or not, containers are likely going to be used in your environment, so getting to know them is a must. That's this week's feature.

Risky Business #423 -- ShadowBrokers PLUS how2pwn Apple's Secure Enclave

August 18, 2016 -- This week's feature interview is incredible. We're speaking with David Wang from Azimuth Security. He, his colleague Tarjei Mandt and Mat Solnik of OffCell Research delivered an absolutely blockbuster talk at Black Hat. I didn't see the talk at the time but I got a chance to review the slides and oh-my-god I can't believe this one got so little attention.

Risky Business #422 -- #CensusFail, news with Adam and MOAR

Risky Business #420 -- What we don't know about Watergate 2.0

July 29, 2016 -- On this week's show we're taking a look at the DNC leaks, but don't worry, we won't be getting bogged down in the same old angles. Instead, we're going to chat to Lorenzo Franceschi-Bicchierai from VICE motherboard about his experience in interviewing the Guccifer 2 persona.

Then we'll hear from Kevin Poulsen about what these latest developments mean for Wikileaks. It's a topic you're probably sick of hearing about this week, but stick with us, we've got some new angles, and they're relevant.

Risky Business #419 -- Brian Krebs on future of bank cybercrime

July 22, 2016 -- On this week's show we're catching up with Brian Krebs of Krebs On Security.
