In this week's feature interview we're chatting with Wired journalist Kim Zetter about her fantastic book Stuxnet: Countdown to Zero Day. As it turns out, the assumption that US and Israeli intelligence agencies had "boots on ground" intelligence to design the malicious code could very well be bunkum!

Truth can be stranger than fiction on those darned Internetz...
December 5th, 2014 --
On this week's show Adam and I establish that it's actually quite possible the disaster unfolding at Sony Pictures is, in fact, a North Korean government plot. I know, I know, there are sceptics, but any way you slice or dice it, it actually looks plausible. Tune in to find out why.
Don't forget to tune in to our year in review special next week!

On this week's show we're chatting with Peter Fillmore about payment card security. He was able to clone a contactless card and use it to do his shopping here in Australia -- this is something you shouldn't be able to do. So the question becomes, how can the USA, which is taking tentative steps towards chip cards, avoid some of the mistakes made in more advanced markets like ours? We also find out chip-enabled ATMs pass card data through the chip reader straight into a parser running on the main ATM OS... which, yeah... That's pretty bad.

Influx of VMs could mean an influx of network equipment bugs...
November 7th, 2014 --
On this week's show we're chatting with Alec Stuart Muirk about some of his research into Cisco appliance security. That interview is not so much a blow by blow of the bugs he found, which were pretty devastating by the way, but more about how accessibility is a major hurdle when researching various bits of kit. As you'll hear, many security vendors are starting to release their kit as VMs, which means researchers will be more likely to poke at them. Does that mean more boneheaded bugs like the stuff he found? Well, probably.

Two feature interviews in this week's show!
October 24th, 2014 --
Despite some technical challenges we have a great show for you all this week. We'll be chatting with Mike Ryan of iSec Partners and his pal, independent hardware hacker Joe Fitzpatrick, all about the NSA Playset! It's a hobbyist project that aims to recreate all the awesome tools in the leaked NSA ANT catalogue. Such fun! We'll also be hearing a tale of cloud woe from the trenches of enterprise IT. A friend of the show had his entire global email infrastructure pulled offline by Symantec with what he says was inadequate warning. And he might just have a point there. Have a listen to the interview and make your own mind up.
