News and Opinion
I've included links to all news items plus the three feature topics covered off with Paul Ducklin. Enjoy!
Here's this week's show notes. Lots of fun, lots of fail. I forgot to record this week's outro, so I should point out that this week's feature track is by the Cactus Channel. See the last link!
The inaugural Ruxcon Breakpoint security conference has kicked off with a bang in Melbourne.
This morning's first presentation was a talk by Roelof Temmingh, the creator of Maltego. The Maltego software, for those who don't know it, is essentially a data analysis and reconnaissance tool with some pretty powerful features.
Pacemakers and implanted defibrillators are vulnerable to wireless attacks that could kill tens of thousands, says the security researcher best known for "jackpotting" an ATM on stage at the BlackHat security conference in Las Vegas in 2010.
The researcher in question, Barnaby Jack, today told the Ruxcon Breakpoint security conference in Melbourne, Australia that “the most obvious scenario would be a targeted attack against a high profile individual.”
Jack also warned of a worst-case scenario “worm with the ability to commit mass murder".
Here is a list of news stories discussed in episode 258 of the Risky Business podcast.
Windows 8 will make hackers' lives hard, says Windows internals expert, security researcher and co-author of the open source Windows XP clone ReactOS Alex Ionescu.
Now chief architect at CrowdStrke, a security company focused on nation-state adversaries, Ionescu says Windows 8 builds on the usermode exploit mitigations introduced into Windows Vista and 7 with new approaches to security that attempt to mitigate kernel mode attacks.
This week's feature guest Alex Ionescu is a smart cookie indeed. Scroll to the links below to find a link to a synopsis of his Ruxcon Breakpoint talk.
These show notes include links to a few stories that didn't make it to the final edit of the show. Also included is Corey Benninger's slide deck from EU Sec West, and a video demo.
Here's a list of the week's news items as discussed in the show, plus a few that didn't make the final cut. We've also got a link to Saskwatch's (featured track) page, go check out a show, and a link to the Ruxcon Breakpoint website. Breakpoint is a great new conference kicking off in Melbourne in October. Mention "Risky Business Apple TV" when you register and the Ruxcon Breakpoint team will send you a shiny new Apple TV! It's limited to the next five people to register, so get in quick!
