Stories

  • One Third Of Security Pros Not Practicing What They Preach - "Survey shows security pros breaking security policies for convenience, and overall difficulty in making major changes to security technologies and strategies" - An interview with our very own Ron Gula.
  • "TaoSecurity Security Effectiveness Model" - A good reminder that we should consider the motivations of attackers when planning your defenses.
  • "Details of the RSA Hack" - Turns out it was an email to HR applying for a job. I can't tell you how many times this has been successful on penetration test.
  • "Morto Windows Worm spreading via RDP Remote Desktop Connections" - A password brute-forcing worm is being successful, this should not be the case!
  • "Tenable Ranks 17th Among Security Companies on Inc. 5000" - Hey wait, that's us!
  • "Malicious infections enter 99% of enterprise networks" - I remember ten years ago consulting with organizations on security. I would tell them that if systems on their network had "spyware", they were in fact compromised. It seems we have not learned from the past, and still overlook malware on the desktops as a primary threat.
  • "Digital Certificate Authority Hacked - While its bad when this happens, the important defensive measure it to discover it as quickly as possible and revoke certificates and update CA lists.
  • "Digital Hit Men for Hire Krebs on Security" - I love stories such as this that provide insight into the world of "cyber crime".
  • The Urban Legend of Multipass Hard Disk Overwrite - I re-write 20,000,000 times, then I break out the sledge hammer, is that overkill?
  • Universities Account for a Higher Number of Breaches - Having worked in this space, and commented on University security a lot, I'm curious to hear from others on the show.
