    S3 Ep86: The crooks were in our network for HOW long?!

    The dawn of the x86 era. The Active Adversary Playbook. A sort-of zero day in Windows. A real-life zero-day in Atlassian Confluence. And the registry settings that could keep you in your job.

    S3 Ep85: Now THAT'S what I call a Microsoft Office exploit!

    S3 Ep85: Now THAT'S what I call a Microsoft Office exploit!

    Why calling a computer after a famous scientist doesn't always help. The wacky but dangerous 0-day hole in Windows. Supply chain attacks and the crooks who orchestrate them. Smishing revisited. And why saying what you really mean makes you better at cybersecurity.

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.
