Let our weekly video summarize the latest for you in ten minutes or less. If you want to watch the video Friday, subscribe to our YouTube channel. Otherwise, we’ll post the weekly episode on the first day of the following week.

Cyber Espionage Sanctions – Daily Security Byte EP.134

According to unnamed sources in the Obama administration, the US government is developing sanction against foreign attackers who leverage cyber espionage to steal intellectual property. While these sorts of deterrents may be necessary to discourage cyber attacks in the age we live, they could certainly change the information security landscape. Watch today’s episode to learn more about these possible sanctions.

Hacked Teams, Suspicious Glitches, and 0day Fixes – WSWiR Episode 159

Last week was another packed week of information security stories. If you’re falling behind, and don’t know what’s really important, use our weekly video to keep up to date.

Last Friday’s episode covered an ironic story about a “grey hat” security company getting hacked, leaked Adobe Flash 0day, an important software update, and much more. Watch last Friday’s video to learn the details, or peruse the reference section if you prefer to read.

Show Note: This week I’m traveling to the UK for some WatchGuard events. I’ll try my best to post some videos, however, I may miss a few days and have to post at non-typical hours.

XKeyScore Sniffs Our Data – Daily Security Byte EP.108

Earlier Snowden leaks have already introduced us to XKeyScore. However, new documents highlighted in the latest Intercept article make it sound even worse than privacy advocates first suspected. Watch the video to learn more.

As an aside: You may have noticed there was no episode on Wednesday. I was updating my production software, which prevented me from creating a video that day. Also, there will be no video on Friday, since it’s a U.S. holiday. Enjoy the 4th of July!

Nation States Spy on AV Vendors – Daily Security Byte EP.103

You would hope our governments only spy on or hack the bad guys, but apparently they target security companies too. The latest Snowden leaks cover how the NSA and GCHQ target foreign antivirus companies, and reverse engineer their products to presumably find weaknesses. Watch today’s video to learn why I think this is bad for the security of all countries.
