Risky Business #159 -- Skimmers pay massive bribes downunder

Want a quick $40k?
16 Jul 2010 » Risky Business

On this week's show we take a fresh look at the insider threat in light of the news, here in Australia, that criminal syndicates are paying up to $40,000 to bribe service station attendants into helping them skim cards.

If the bad guys are willing to pay $40k for someone that low on the food chain, what will they pay to get at someone in your organisation?

To find out we'll be joined by Gartner research director, AusCERT co-founder and former Commonwealth Bank security big-wig Rob McMillan.

Also this week we chat with Kaspersky's Vitaly Kamlyuk in the sponsor interview.

We'll be chatting about Mozilla's blocking of a malicious plugin that siphoned usernames and passwords off unsuspecting users. What should browser manufacturers be doing to stop this sort of thing from happening?

Adam Boileau, as always, stops in with the week's news.
