The Security box, podcast 16: lots of items including catchup, the government and more

Hello folks,

After the show on Wednesday, I got involved with a potential new client, and yesterday I set up a new client along the network. Be that as it may, I want to try and get some stuff out, which include the notations and download link for this show, and other stuff that I’ve been reading.

Be advised that I’ll be also working on the next podcast, even I’ve got some ideas on the next full tech program, so we’ll have more coming soon.

Now, here are the show notes for this past wednesday’s show. The show is already on the the rss fed for those who want to have it. Those who get it via dropbox already have it.

Welcome to broadcast 16 of the Security Box.

Time to catch up:

Jennifer, the staple it seems to this program, comes in with 8 different commentary pieces we’ll step through in regards to last week’s significant program on privacy, personal information online and the like. We’ll see how this segment goes when it comes to whether there needs to be anything else said, or whether it’ll speak for itself.


  • What do you think when it comes to your web host and what they offer? Some web hosts are Windows based, some are linux based, some may have both, and some … well … may just not care what they host no matter what the platform. In an article entitled Planetary Reef: Cybercriminal Hosting and Phishing-as-a-Service Threat Actor which comes from Phish Labs, we’ll talk about a company that seems to be under multiple names, yet surves up all kinds of things that most web hosts would not tolerate. The group behind Planetary Reef leases IP space from a large reseller. I’m considered a reseller, selling space given to me, but a large reseller may be under a company that they buy their space from each month and they sell it to others. Let’s talk about this as there is a history behind the web space market throughout the years.
  • In a related topic I covered and didn’t originally cover under the rundown, we talk about this Krebs on Security article QAnon/8Chan Sites Briefly Knocked Offline and tie this and the first article together.
  • Has the Department of Justice not learned anything about why we need security today? I guess they really haven’t because a Cyberscoop article entitled DOJ efforts to weaken encryption place national security at risk, congressman says was written by Shannon Vavra and it is quite well written.

    Rep. Ro Khanna has one message for politicians who continue to suggest technology companies should give law enforcement agencies access to encrypted data:
    This is a power grab.

    The U.S. Department of Justice has long called for technology firms to create software that would allow law enforcement agencies to investigate suspects
    who use encryption to hide illegal behavior. For Khanna, a California Democrat, the tradeoff is too dangerous

    Most in government do not understand this, and its time that someone really hit the hammer home with this nonsense and lets put it to bed once and for all.

News, notes, and more

For a complete news notes overview, watch this space on the blog. I may have posted more than what is covered here, and what I do cover is only a few items from the subset of things I thought would be of interest. We’re not going to link to everything, but maybe something else caught your attention that I did not cover. Let us see what you think of the news covered in the program, and of course, the comment boards await you.

Things to ponder

I honestly didn’t see this coming. Now, … for a random breach … a psychotherapy center is something I bring up in news notes, but yet it is a serious thing. In things to ponder, I’ll give my thoughts on this one. Its beyond repair.

Want to get the file and don’t want to mess with the RSS feed? No Problem! Download the 171.38mb file by selecting this link. I hope you enjoy the program as much as I have bringing it together for you, and we’ll have another edition very soon.
