    S3 Ep50: Two 0-days plus another 0-day plus a fast food bug

    S3 Ep50: Two 0-days plus another 0-day plus a fast food bug

    Apple patches two zero-day bugs. Microsoft patches one zero-day bug. A security researcher finds a fast-food bug (non-insect sort). And a touchpad user turns right into left, and vice versa.

    (See also: Big Office bug squashed for September 2021 Patch Tuesday)

    With Paul Ducklin and Doug Aamoth.

    S3 Ep49: Poison PACs, pointless alarms and phunky bugs

    Overlooked security flaw leaves web code vulnerable. A home alarm system that almost anyone can turn off. Some fascinating Firefox bugs fixed. And when you grab your laptop... but it's not yours.

    With Paul Ducklin and Doug Aamoth.

    S3 Ep48: Cryptographic bugs, cryptocurrency nightmares, and lots (and lots) of phishing

    Security code flushes out security bugs. Recursion: see recursion. Phishing (and lots of it). And the Windows desktop that got so big it imploded.



    With Paul Ducklin and Doug Aamoth.

    S3 Ep47: Daylight robbery, spaghetti trouble, and mousetastic superpowers

    More money troubles in cryptotown. Trouble with plastic spaghetti. The mouse that conquered Windows. And the embarrassment when you report one of your very own emails as a phish.



    With Paul Ducklin and Doug Aamoth.

    S3 Ep46: Copyright scams, video snooping and Grand Theft Crypto

    Copyright infringement scams that beg you to call. An IoT bug that could be exploited for video snooping and more. A hacker steals $600m and then makes a song and dance out of giving it back. And how Doug's PS5 issues could be solved at last.



    With Paul Ducklin and Chester Wisniewski.

    S3 Ep45: Routers attacked, hacking tool hacked, and betrayers betrayed

    Home and small business routers under attack. A hacking tool favoured by crooks gets hacked. The Navajo Nation's selfless cryptographic contribution to America. A cybercrook gets aggrieved at being ripped off by cybercrooks.

5 Star Review

Love the show. Actually can be done in less than 30 seconds.

Informative and Fun

I’ve subscribed to many IT and security podcasts and find many too long and dry to keep me engaged. The Naked Security podcast content has always been on point and the hosts are always entertaining. It’s one of the few I listen to as soon as it’s published.

Good Security (and general) Podcast

This is a fun podcast to keep tabs on some interesting security news.

I do have a request though: I would love to hear much more from Doug and Kim.
I’m not trying to be mean, but Paul seems to sort of take over too much. I enjoy various facts and technical jargon, but I’ve found myself muttering ‘let them speak’ much too often.
