Also this week Chris Gatford of HackLabs drops by for this week's sponsor interview. In it we discuss some statistics he's cobbled together from HackLabs last 100 or so penetration tests. They're not so much surprising as, you know, depressing.

Adam Boileau, as always, is along to discuss this week's news. And this, spectacular fail.
