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 93 - It's on Facebook

This evening, Martin, Steve, Andy, and Joseph Tackled some stuff that just makes you say “duh.”

Starting off, we talked about the exciting Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Ticker Tape Parade, which unleashed confidential data upon unsuspecting parade watchers:

We went straight from there to a sticky topic that’s been making the rounds lately about AT&T:

To lighten the mood, we talked about some of Facebook’s recent decisions and how it’s affecting the greater Facebook population:

And as a reference for those of you interested in the incident response report for South Carolina that we discusses a few weeks back, that’s available for public viewing now:
