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 49 - Merry Breachmas!

Just Andy and Joseph this week, but we hit some fairly hefty topics, particularly the breaches that seem to keep springing up every day lately.

First, Derek Newton has discovered a very interesting flaw in Dropbox’s host authentication.

And in the “too close to home for comfort” category, we finished up with the Texas Comptroller breach:
