On this week’s show we chat with Errata Security’s Robert Graham about a ridiculous non-story that had readers in the USA convinced that Slate magazine had uncovered a covert communication channel between Donald Trump and a state-linked Russian bank.

In this week’s sponsor interview we’re chatting with the former CEO and CTOs of Flawcheck, a company that made vulnerability scanning tools for Docker containers. Flawcheck has been acquired by this week’s sponsor, Tenable Network Security, and it’s a really handy thing to use if your company makes use of Docker. You can actually register for a free trial of Flawcheck here. We’ll find out why you need specialist kit to do container scanning.
