WatchGuard Security Week in Review: Episode 26

Multi-platform Malware, MS Gadget Flaw, and More Password Leaks

No time to follow the security news this week? Let my weekly video fill you in.

Today’s episode includes all the software updates for the week (e.g. Microsoft Patch Day), two more vendor password leaks, some interesting android and multi-platform malware, and an unpatched Microsoft Gadget vulnerability.

This week was so news-packed that I couldn’t cover every interesting or important security story in the video. If you want to check out the stories I skipped, or just prefer reading over watching, scroll down to the Reference section below for links to this week’s stories.

Finally, feel free to share your security tips, favorite security stories, or any other feedback in the comment section.

Production Note: Unfortunately, I felt like I had every post production problem possible this week. A cord issue killed my audio, and forced me to re-record many segments, so please excuse the slight difference in audio during the video. I’m also posting this late since I had a software crash that forced me to re-edit half the video. The joy of modern technology, eh?
