In this week's show we're taking a look at a new technology from Immunity Inc. It's called El Jefe and it's actually pretty interesting.

Instead of monitoring network traffic, El Jefe keeps an eye on processes running on all your machines. It's a pretty interesting intrusion detection strategy and I think it's got legs.

Justin Seitz of Immunity joins the show to tell us all about it.

This week's sponsor interview is a funny one -- we've got Symantec's Kevin Haley on the show to talk about an unexpected problem the bad guys are facing: piracy!

It turns out there is no honour among thieves -- the creators of malware like Zeus have a problem with people using unlicensed copies of their badness. So how have malware authors responded? They're shipping anti-piracy dongles!

Adam Boileau, as always, joins us to discuss the week's news.
