Security In Five Weekly Roundup – 10/13/17

It’s Friday the 13th. Are you scared? If you have been paying attention to the security news you should be. If the Equifax breach couldn’t get more embarrassing a new story came out yesterday that ANOTHER Equifax website was breached. Apparently one of Equifax’s website was compromised and serving malware through a phony Flash Update prompt. You’d think they would get their collective stuff together and all hands on deck. One can hope.

The Equifax, hopefully, will be a catalyst to overhaul the information security practices around the world. An example everyone will gauge themselves against. Hopefully.

This week’s podcast episodes were focused on program practices, I started a new ten episode series on the OWASP Top 10 and I do a book review for Secure Enough? By Bryce Austin. I also have a bonus episode. I received one of those tech support scam calls and quickly got my recording equipment going to catch it. I then made an episode about it to let you hear what these scam calls sound like, the tactics, the scripts they use and what they are after.

Here are next week’s upcoming episodes –
