Also, why the Apple Watch is stoopid...
May 5th, 2015 --
In this edition of Serious Business, Australia's Most Hated Man (tm) Dan Ilic and I speak about the (failed) shooting attack against a group of very silly Americans who got together to denigrate Islam. We also speak about Apple's stupid watch. I should warn you, too, I don't edit this podcast for bad language and there are f-bombs aplenty. So if you have your kids in your car and you don't want them hearing my awful, awful language, please turn off this podcast now.
Active defence not about owning your attackers...
April 30th, 2015 --
In this week's feature interview we chat with John Strand, a SANS instructor and co-host of Security Weekly's Webcasts. He runs Black Hills information security and he's a maintainer of the ADHD Linux distro -- it's essentially a curation of active defence tools that you can use to do some funky stuff. But in this case active defence doesn't mean popping shells on boxes in China, it's more about annoying the absolute shit out of your adversaries.

This week's show was cut together from our nation's capital, Canberra! I've been down here to attend the Australian Cyber Security Centre conference, which was actually pretty good. There were some great technical talks. One of them was by Balint Seeber on Software defined radio haxing, he’s our feature guest in this week's show.

In this week's show we're chatting with Bob Rudis of Verizon about that company's annual data breach investigation report. After what I thought was a bit of a lapse in relevance last year, the 2015 report has come back stronger than ever. There are some genuinely interesting findings.

April 9th, 2015 --
We've got a shorter than usual show for you this week. It's actually been a three day week here in Australia because we get Easter Friday and Easter Monday off. So there's no feature interview this week, sorry about that. But nonetheless we've got a great podcast for you this week. We'll be checking the week's news headlines with Adam Boileau then moving right on into this week's sponsor interview.

App maker accuses Xipiter of "doctoring" disastrous PoC...
March 26th, 2015 --
This week Risky Business takes you behind the scenes of a spat between the makers of the Whisper App and Stephen Ridley's company Xipiter. Ridley's crew say they found some 24-carat-facepalm security problems with the app, subsequently publishing a blog post and video detailing the bugs. You'd think whisper would patch the bugs and move on. But no, they decided to accuse Xipiter of making the whole thing up, even going so far as to accuse them of doctoring their proof of concept video! Stephen Ridley will join the show to discuss all of that.

On this week's show we chat with Rapid7's HD Moore (feature) and Thinkst head honcho Haroon Meer (sponsor) about the big-picture changes that could see enterprise security actually change. They're both high-level interviews with two of the industry's sharpest. Adam Boileau, as usual, joins us to discuss the week's news headlines. You can find links to everything discussed in this week's show in the show notes. Don't forget to check out this week's Risky Business video!

The infosec industry has failed to protect the Internet and networks attached to it. So why do people who work in it engage in victim-shaming?
March 12th, 2015 --
On this week's show we're having a chat with Mark Dowd about the so-called Rowhammer exploit. And yeah, if you haven't heard about this one you're in for a treat. It's among the most badass research I've ever seen. You know, you can skin a cat with a knife, or you can do what the Google Project Zero team did and skin it with 300 synchronised lasers.
