WatchGuard Security Week in Review: Episode 44 – Ar.Drone Virus

WatchGuard Security Week in Review: Episode 44 – Ar.Drone Virus

Ar.Drone Virus, Skynet Bot, and #ProjectWhiteFox

Despite the upcoming holiday season, information security (infosec) news hasn’t slowed, with plenty of interesting new infosec stories this week. If you want a quick recap of the highlights, check out our short video below.

In this episode, I cover a few breaches—including one that affected an exploit vendor—a botnet that leverages Tor to hide its communications, and a virus that wirelessly infects remote control quadricopters. If you’re passionate about infosec, this was a pretty entertaining and interesting week.

As always, I share links to written versions of these stories in the Reference section below. I had to keep this week’s episode short due to other events, so I’ve also included links to many other stories I couldn’t cover in the video. Be sure to check them out.

As an aside, if you’ve been waiting for December’s promised Radio Free Security episode, which unveils our 2013 Security Predictions, I’ll post it early next week.
