Security 67 – Actual News Articles

We came across three interesting news articles in the past week, two of them are philosophical problems regarding security.

First we talk about the the life of passwords as found in the NYTimes. How do you decrypt when you need to after the 9/11 attacks.

Second we talk about the hack on Sony, and what we know.

Finally, we have a debate of sorts of whose fault it is when IT knows it all, and the average user does not.

Show Notes:
The Secret Life of Passwords – NY Times
Sony Hack: What We Know So Far – Wired – 
A Story About Jessica – @SwiftonSecurity – 

Things That Go Click Click Click – inThirty 114

Chaim was really excited about the new Sony A7. We ask him to explain why is so excited, and why a new camera really matters. After we focus on taking pictures, and what gear everyone else has. Are the days of cameras over with the great image quality of the 5s? Finally we discuss add-ons for camera phones.


inThirty 80 – Not So Special Announcements

What happens when announcements don’t have that wow factor?  Even big companies suffer from boring announcements or botched product launches.  In this week’s episode  we talk about two announcements that should have been larger than life, but fell on pretty much deaf ears.

[Editor’s Note] – Sorry for the delay.  We will try to be more proactive about getting episodes out on time.

You can always watch us live on YouTube, Wednesday’s at 9pm
