This week’s Security Now program

Hello everyone,

This week, Security Now is going to be packed as usual. If you aren’t subscribed to it, please do so by going to this RSS feed. Here are those show notes on whats coming up this week. This program is 1 hour 57 minutes long.


SN 609: The Double Pulsar April 25, 2017, 6:35 PM
Security Now (MP3)
This week Steve and Leo discuss how one of the NSA’s Vault7 vulnerabilities has gotten loose, a clever hacker removes Microsoft deliberate (and apparently unnecessary) block on Win7/8.1 updates for newer processors, Microsoft refactors multifactor authentication, Google to add native ad-blocking to Chrome… and what exactly are abusive ads?, Mastercard to build a questionable fingerprint sensor into their cards, are Bose headphones spying on their listeners? 10 worrisome security holes discovered in Linksys routers, MIT cashes out half of its IPv4 space, and the return of two meaner BrickerBots. Then some Errata, a bit of Miscellany, and, time permitting, some “Closing the Loop” feedback from our podcast’s terrific listeners.

We are allowed to air it as long as we leave everything in tact, so join the mix on Thursday at 5 CT, 3 PT for the airing. Hope to see you there!

Be Sociable, Share!
