Risky Business, your weekly security podcast, is now available for download, thanks to our sponsor Verizon Business Security Solutions, Powered by Cybertrust, and Vigabyte virtual hosting, our hosting partner.

On this week's podcast:

  • Verisign's Rick Howard. Rick works as the intelligence director for the division of Verisign that used to be iDefense. As many of you would have heard, a Swiss company recently set up a vulnerability auction site. As iDefense is well known for trading in vulnerability information, we thought we'd bring on Howard to discuss the trading of vulnerability info.
  • We'll also hear from Verizon Business security solutions' Apple expert Kevin Long who'll be along to talk about anti-virus software on the OS X operating system.
  • And, as always, we're joined by Munir Kotadia from ZDNet Australia to discuss this week's news.

A note to particularly attentive listeners: Yes, I did get ahead of myself at the conclusion of this week's podcast. This is the 23rd edition of the show, not the 24th!
