ICANN Breach & More Sony – WSWiR Episode 133

Wow! This week’s been such a busy news week that the information security (InfoSec) stories kept pouring in, long after I finished this week’s video. The latest? CERT just warned about some critical vulnerabilities in NTPd, a popular network time protocol (NTP) service that many network devices and software uses. If you use NTPd, look into it (and I’ll post more soon). In the meantime, if you can’t keep up with the weekly deluge of security news, let our video summarize the important stuff for you.

Today’s episode covers a website hijacking campaign targeting WordPress plugins, a new SOHO router vulnerability called Misfortune Cookie, and a noteworthy breach affecting ICANN (the folks who manage domain names). I even throw in the latest Sony updates for good measure. Press play to learn more about those stories, but don’t forget to check out the References section too. It covers other interesting news, such as the last-minute, breaking NTPd issue.

Quick show note: I’m taking some time of for the Holidays, so I won’t be posting a video for two weeks. Have a happy holiday yourself, and I’ll see you next year.
