WatchGuard Security Week in Review: Episode 47 – Piles of Patches

Critical Java 0Day, Piles of Patches, and More

Ready for a weekly dose of InfoSec? This episode has a strong “patch” theme, with many vendors releasing some big security updates this week. Besides the patches, I also cover a few new 0day exploits, including a serious Java one getting leveraged quite a bit in the wild, and a couple crazy sounding security-related news items. If you want all the details, click play below, or check out the Reference section.

Note: I will be traveling the next few weeks. I still plan on trying to post the weekly video, but it may be shorter, less produced, and arrive at odd hours due to travel.
