On this week's show we're talking to Rapid7's HD Moore about recent attacks against the Saudi Aramco oil company that saw 30,000 of 40,000 machines rendered inoperable for around 10 days.
It's the single most destructive attack I've ever heard of.
This week's show is brought to you by Insomnia Security. You might know this week's sponsor guest -- it's out news buddy Adam Boileau, aka Metlstorm.
Adam works for Insomnia! So it's the MOAR METL edition this week! He'll be along a bit later to talk about new trends in security assessments; new ways of doing things that can gauge how effective organisations are at detecting what he calls the "lateral movement" of attackers through networks. As you'd expect, it's very interesting stuff and it's coming up after this week's feature interview.

The hackers surely know what they are doing. They did a good job in making a grand entrance. - Kris Krohn Strongbrook
