WatchGuard Security Week in Review: Episode 45 – OpWestboro

Hacktivists Against Hate, SMS Spam Bots, and Exynos Exploits

Hey! Look at that. The world hasn’t ended.

I guess that means my decision to prepare my weekly security news video rather than my apocalyptical fallout shelter wasn’t a tragic mistake. If you are in the mood for some information security (infosec) news on the last Mayan calendar day of the, well, er…ever…then you’ve come to the right place.

In this week’s show, I cover some important software update news, an android SMS botnet, a mobile  zero day flaw, and the latest Anonymous operation, which I suspect many people might appreciate despite its illegal nature. If you’d like to learn how to avoid the latest malware and attacks, or just want to follow the latest infosec drama, play the video below.

Also, don’t forget to check out the Reference section if you’d like to read more details about any of these stories. As always, I’ll include a few extras for those looking for bonus material.

Speaking of end of times, this will be the last WatchGuard Security Week in Review episode for 2012. Enjoy your holiday. I’ll see you next year.
