The Southern Fried Security Podcast

The Southern Fried Security Podcast is designed to be an information security podcast that fills the gap between technical security podcasts and Security Now.

Episode 4 - Aurora Boarallofus

Announcement, Gossip, and Smack Talk

– Welcome again to Episode 4 of the SFS Podcast. Follow us on Twitter (@SFSPodcast) where we’ll be tweeting about new episodes & interviews.
– The podcast is intended to fill the gap between the technical podcasts on security and Security Now. We’ll be focusing on operations, leadership, and news items that you may have missed the week before.
– We want the podcast to be friendly, funny, and make it so you can listen to it with your kids in the car. Nothing against Pauldotcom and Exotic Liability (we listen to them too!) but we wanted to do something a little bit different…

News and Other Items of Distraction
– More on Google and Aurora
Google is using the Aurora issue as “justification” for keeping as much data as possible on us. And you wonder why Andy doesn’t like Google.

Microsoft knew about the vulnerability that Aurora exploited way back in August 2009. Were they irresponsible for not patching it already?
