WatchGuard Security Week in Review: Episode 60 – Oracle CPU

Router Hacks, WordPress Attack, and Huge Oracle Update

During a week of such tragedy, it’s hard to give much thought to network and information security (InfoSec). Yet, we must stay vigilant, lest abhorrent cyber criminals leverage such tragedies against us in social networking campaigns.

In this week’s InfoSec news summary, I cover Oracle’s quarterly Critical Patch Update (CPU), a research project that uncovered vulnerabilities in consumer routers, a WordPress password cracking botnet, and how scammers are exploiting this week’s tragedies in their spam campaigns. Watch the video below for the highlights and some defensive tips.

As an aside, I will be traveling next week so I may not post the weekly video at its normal time.
