PLUS! News with Grugq...
August 25th, 2016 --
On this week's show we chat with Jessie Frazelle. Jessie is a former Docker maintainer who now works at Google on all things "containery". So we talk to her about what's up with containers, basically, and where the security pitfalls are. Like it or not, containers are likely going to be used in your environment, so getting to know them is a must. That's this week's feature.
Not just shadowbrokers news! ZOMG!

What a time to be alive...
August 18th, 2016 --
This week's feature interview is incredible. We're speaking with David Wang from Azimuth Security. He, his colleague Tarjei Mandt and Mat Solnik of OffCell Research delivered an absolutely blockbuster talk at Black Hat. I didn't see the talk at the time but I got a chance to review the slides and oh-my-god I can't believe this one got so little attention.
News, slide decks and more!

Revisiting last week's post...
August 15th, 2016 --
Last week I dashed off a very quick post about #CensusFail that went stupid viral. I think it was retweeted about 1200 times and it sort of became "the story" of what happened. As far as I know the information I posted is accurate, but I wanted to write this to add a bit more context and look at where it's shaky. I literally wrote that thing up in about 10 minutes while I was working on last week's show. I was doubly under the pump because The Project had a camera guy coming to my house that evening to record an interview about the whole debacle. I'd also just arrived back in Australia after spending six days in Las Vegas attending Black Hat, B-Sides and Defcon. Prior to that I was in Brazil. So yes, long story short, I was exhausted, jet lagged, slammed with work and I didn't really have much time to write a decent post. I certainly wasn't expecting what I did write to be spread so widely. So, now that I've had a minute to breathe, let's look back through the bullet points in original post to see where it's solid and where it isn't.
You can't make this stuff up.

High level sources say...
August 11th, 2016 --
I have been able to cobble together the following by talking to my sources. Sorry this post is so brief, but I'm still trying to get this week's show out and I'm massively under the pump. So here it is: Set your faces to stunned. IBM and the ABS were offered DDoS prevention services from their upstream provider, NextGen Networks, and said they didn't need it. Their plan was to just ask NextGen to geoblock all traffic outside of Australia in the event of an attack. This plan was activated when there was a small-scale attack against the census website.

On this week's show we're taking a look at the DNC leaks, but don't worry, we won't be getting bogged down in the same old angles. Instead, we're going to chat to Lorenzo Franceschi-Bicchierai from VICE motherboard about his experience in interviewing the Guccifer 2 persona. Then we'll hear from Kevin Poulsen about what these latest developments mean for Wikileaks. It's a topic you're probably sick of hearing about this week, but stick with us, we've got some new angles, and they're relevant.

Facebook launches e2e for messenger, gets shat on...
July 15th, 2016 --
On this week's show we're chatting with The Grugq about secure messaging. Facebook has announced it's rolling out an end-to-end encryption feature and the reaction to this wonderful announcement has been somewhat bizarre. We'll be talking to Grugq about why crypto absolutists are hating on companies that are rolling out non-default e2e features. We'll also talk about a couple of interesting case studies in which e2e encryption did absolutely nothing for the people using it.

July 8th, 2016 --
In this week's feature interview we're chatting with Stanford's very own Jennifer Granick about a recent ruling in a Virginia court that appears to give the FBI permission to hack into any computer it wants, sans warrant. Well that's what the headlines are screaming, anyway. But as you'll hear, it's not quite that black and white.
