WatchGuard Security Week in Review: Episode 31 – Java 0day

Java 0days, Hacktivist Data Breaches, and Dropbox Improvements

Though I cover four stories in this week’s security recap video, one incident far outweighed all the others this week. If you use Java—and almost everyone does—you’ll want to check out today’s episode.

The video below covers, Dropbox’s two-token authentication update, a Firefox security update, a new hacktivist data breach, and two zero day Java vulnerabilities that attackers have exploited in the wild throughout the week. If you want to protect yourself from the latest drive-by download attacks, watch the video for tips.

For more details on any of the stories in the video, see the references below. In the meantime, surf safe and if you’re in the US, enjoy your holiday weekend.

As an aside, if there are any Radio Free Security (RFS)  listeners out there, I recorded August’s episode and will complete final edits today. However, I don’t intend on posting it till never Tuesday, due to the holiday weekend. If you’re looking for RFS, check back next week.
