Jon and Eric have worked in the security space as developers, architects and leaders for more years than they care to count. From commentary on current events to random musings, they chat (mostly) about security and technology topics. However, life is more than just the day job. From beekeeping adventures to hiking mountains to favorite shows, there's always something fun to wrap up the show.
Something Worth Doing
Some Covid Phishing and Microsoft takes TrickBot to court. McAfee releases details on an Azure bug bounty and donates the proceeds to charity. Eric votes for David Attenborough and Jon votes for Generative Adversarial Network Art. #VOTE
Anything Qualifies As Physics
Jon Paints and Eric Hikes. Calories anyone? Typosquatting followup, zerologon is multiplatform, and who doesn't like SPACE! Four! Point! Oh! Please Vote, and were you aware IAM is difficult? For fun we have Venice barriers, punk Astley, Twinkie Fungi, Nobel Prizes, and gene splicing. Please leave us a review!
Isn't that called a Vending Machine?
Jon patches his QNAP, Eric follows coffee maker firmware shenanigans. There's a 9-1-1 outage and a deconstructed Mac Spyware app. Ring makes a camera drone to fly around the inside of your house and Civilization is on the Subscription Bandwagon.
Nice to breathe again, 3d printing fun, and concrete adventures. Directive to patch Zerologon, Russia bans ESNI, and did you know octal is a valid IP representation? Strava shows personal info to strangers, and Germany sees the first potential death due to a ransomware attack. For fun, you can fly Serenity, calculate the speed of light with a chocolate bar, code in Swift on Windows, and listen to Timber Wars. (will anyone notice if I *don't* put images into the metadata??)
Got Barnacled Up
No Mt. St. Helens for Eric, but bonus honey for Jon. GitHub drops passwords for cloning, Jon remembers a two year old underwater datacenter. More reminders about Disinformation and "Game Over" if you don't patch your servers. Eric's something fun isn't all that fun, then he stomps on Jon's fun. Jon gets excited about Library of Congress tech.
Now You Have A Birdsicle
Wildfires are consuming the west coast -- including Oregon; Eric repurposes railing for a fence, Hartford schools and Pakistan's largest power company hit by ransomware. For fun Eric has a FrozenBird and Mario Cart Live, and Jon brings the board game Karmaka.
