This week's podcast looks at a few interesting topics. Apparently the bad guys are about to ditch IRC as a command and control channel for botnets and start using RSS, blogs and steganography to communicate with their zombie armies... sneakily!

The show is brought to you this week by the fine folks at Check Point Software Technologies and hosted, as always, by Vigabyte.

On the podcast:

  • ZDNet Australia's Munir Kotadia discusses the week's news
  • Immunity Inc's Adam Boileau talks about exploiting Windows' IGMP bug and botnet C&C
  • Steve MacDonald from Check Point joins us for this week's sponsor interview

The music heard at the end of the podcast came from Sound Foundation.
