It's been a big week in security news, with a Swedish consultant posting 100 valid embassy staffer e-mail logins online, Zango pulling its law-suit against PC Tools and losing against Kaspersky and the APEC summit forum rolling into Sydney, leading to some insecure and ad-hoc telecommuting.

  • Host Patrick Gray and ZDNet Australia editor Munir Kotadia discuss the week's headlines

  • RSA Security's country manager discusses secure telecommuting

  • PC Tools chief executive Simon Clausen does a postmortem on the failed adware company lawsuit against his company and Kaspersky labs
