On this week's show we're chatting with hacker superstar and YouTube phenomenon Samy Kamkar. Samy is a security researcher of note -- his recent hardware hacks have been coming thick and fast. This week I spoke to him about his brush with the law following his unleashing of the Samy worm on MySpace a decade ago, some of his recent research and his plans for the future.
This week's show is brought to you by Tenable Network Security! Big thanks to Tenable for its support of the Risky Business podcast, we sure do appreciate it. So in this week's sponsor interview we're speaking with Tenable's very own Cris Thomas, a.k.a. Space Rogue. He was one of the early l0pht crew and this week we get his thoughts of the encroachment of security into pop culture and mainstream media. Between the Ashley Madison data breach's media impact and the fantastic USA Network television program Mr. Robot, is the security community finally getting the love its been craving all this time?
Adam Boileau, as always, joins the show for a look at the week's news headlines.
