This week's podcast is sponsored by Tenable Network Security and hosted by Vigabyte virtual hosting.

On this week's show we chat to the head of iDefense Labs, Rick Howard. He joins us to discuss the threat posed to organisations from disgruntled ex-staff. Layoffs have been ramping up, and we've already seen two high-profile incidents involving cranky admins burning down the house, or at least trying to.

Rick also chimes in with his predictions for 2009.

In this week's sponsor interview we chat to Tenable Network Security's CEO Ron Gula, who'll fill you all in on the new, whiz-bang bundle containing Immunity Inc's CANVAS exploitation tool and Tenable's own Nessus software.

This week's news is huge. Munir Kotadia joins us from a small resort island off the coast of Malaysia to discuss the headlines. No joke. Bastard.
