The weekend is almost upon us… Yay! Before you run out and enjoy some fun in the sun (hopefully), take eight minutes to check out this summary video highlighting some of the bigger information and network security stories this week.
As I mentioned in last week’s early warning, today’s Patch Day is extremely light with only two updates. According to their September bulletin summary, Microsoft has only released updates for Visual Studio Foundation Server and System Center Configuration Manager. Both updates fix cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities that Microsoft rates as Important.
A few years ago, we’d be lucky to see one major information security story in the news each week. Now, we consistently see more security news than the average IT guy can keep up with. If you’re looking for a quick summary of the most important information and network security news, you’ve come to the right place.
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.
This week I wrote an article for a few of our partners, include the well-known SpiceWorks IT pro forum. If you’re interesting in learning about the additional risks introduced by hardware vritualization and in securing your virtual environment, read on.
I’ve posted today’s weekly security news summary video a bit late, due to some work travel that got in the way of production, but better late than never right? If you’re interested in the biggest information security stories from the week, you’re at the right place.
In a WatchGuard Security Week in Review video from about three weeks ago, I highlighted a new cross-platform malware variant called Crisis, which could infect both Windows and Mac computers by using a Java vulnerability that affected both platforms. The cross-platform nature of this malware alone made it pretty unique and interesting.
If you follow my weekly security recap vlog, you probably noticed I didn’t post a WatchGuard Security Week in Review video last week. Instead, I was soaking up some rays on the beach. Ok… I was on a Washington state beach so there weren’t many “rays” involved — but at least there was sand.
