IPS, Apple bugs and the Estonia DDoS. Risky Business number 16 is now available for download. On this week's show:

  • Munir Kotadia from ZDNet Australia joins us with the news
  • Karl Hanmore from AusCERT updates us on this week's threats and has some good news
  • Juniper Networks security research manager Steve Manzuik talks about the limitations of IPS, then discusses the remote root vulnerability his team found in Apple's OS X operating system
  • Cybertrust's Paul Nevin joins us to chat about the massive DDoS that crippled Estonia


UPDATE: Well some silly chicken at ITRadio.com.au HQ "clucked up" yesterday. We forgot to include our semi-regular AusCERT slot with Karl Hanmore! He had some interesting things to say this week about AV vulnerabilities and a new tool published by Microsoft that allows computer users to run binary to XML conversions on Office files. If you're a keen listener, you can hear the segment by itself here.
