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.
Jon and Eric are both frustrated by water issues; Jon loses two bee colonies. Hope on the right-to-repair front from Europe, a side channel attack on hardware security keys, and evaluation of the Sunspot implant. For fun we have a Neal Stephenson novel 'Zodiac' and info about the James Webb Space Telescope that should launch in 2021.
Are They Going Forward Or Backward?
Eric gets new windows and watches a movie. Jon watches a show, fences some things and continues his flood watch. A look back 3 years at Spectre/Meltdown, Nissan leaks some code, Zyxel has backdoors and finally, SMB for your Browser! Jon pitches project pyodide and Eric mentions five axis printing and floating point video gaming.
Final episode of 2020. Eric and Jon talk holidays. Solarwind actors potentially using resellers as intrusion vector into cloud accounts. Physical security keys, ransomware against plastic surgeons, and taking down three bulletproof VPN providers. For fun we have dancing robots and an Alaskan Native rights activist.
Not On Your Tractor
Eric complains about Apple and Jon chimes in. More SolarWinds and Sunburst notes. Farmers get their own Cybersecurity talking to and Journalist Phone Security is discussed. Happy Virtual Holidays, all! If you like choral music, check out the Oregon Chorale. Jon mentions the Great Conjunction and Science Events to watch for in 2021.
When The AIs Agree
Eric drives slow and safe, Jon is late for Christmas. CRISPR for sickle cell looks amazingly promising. A Trillion Dollar problem, exfil data by turning your memory into a wifi card, and the Big Hack. Solarwinds supply chain attack disclosed and fallout continues. For fun we have a grazing goat math problem, listening to a whale heart, and macroeconomics for sovereign nations.
Blah blah blah blah blah bl-blah
Tangents galore in the intro. Drone footage of Arecibo collapse. The Death of Flash (for realsies this time). The Next Apple Chips (already?) and some Public Transportation Ransomware, eh. Can you say "Socially Steganographic" with a straight face? Finish up with a glass of Quine Tweet and a stien of Kaggle Survey.
