SN 681: The Browser Extension Ecosystem

Security Now (Audio)

This week we prepare for the first ever Presidential Alert unblockable nationwide text message, we examine Chrome's temporary "www" removal reversal, checkout Comodo's somewhat unsavory marketing, discuss a forthcoming solution to BGP hijacking, examine California's forthcoming IoT legislation, deal with the return of Cold Boot attacks, choose not to click on a link that promptly crashes any Safari OS, congratulate Twitter on adding some auditing, check in on the Mirai Botnet's steady evolution, look at the past year's explosion in DDoS number of size, note another new annoyance brought to us by Windows 10... Then we take a look at the state of the quietly evolving web browser extension ecosystem.

We invite you to read our show notes.

Security Now (Audio)

This week we catch-up with another busy week. We look at Firefox's changing certificate policies, the danger of grabbing a second-hand domain, the Fortnite mess on Android, another patch-it-now Apache Struts RCE, a frightening jump in Mirai Botnet capability, an unpatched Windows 0-day privilege elevation, malware with a tricky new C&C channel, A/V companies are predictably unhappy with Chrome, Tavis found more serious problems in GhostScript, a breakthrough in contactless RSA key extraction, a worrisome flaw that has always been present in OpenSSH, and problems with never-dying Hayes AT commands in Android devices.

SN 677: The Foreshadow Flaw

Security Now (Audio)

As we head into our 14th year of Security Now?, this week we look at some of the research released during last week's USENIX Security symposium, we also take a peek at last week's Patch Tuesday details, Skype's newly released implementation of Open Whisper Systems' Signal privacy protocol, Google's Chrome browser's increasing pushback against being injected into, news following last week's observation about Google's user tracking, Microsoft's announcement of more spoofed domain takedowns, another page table sharing vulnerability, believe it or not... "Malicious Regular Expressions", some numbers on how much money CoinHive is raking in, flaws in browser and their add-ons that allow tracking-block bypasses, two closing-the-loop bits of feedback, and then a look at the details of the latest Intel Speculation disaster known as "The Foreshadow Flaw".

SN 676: The Mega FaxSploit

Security Now (Audio)

This week we cover lots of discoveries revealed during last week's Black Hat 2018 and DEF CON 26 Las Vegas security conferences. Among them, 47 vulnerabilities across 25 Android smartphones, Android "Disk-In-The-Middle" attacks, Google tracking when asked not to, more Brazilian DLink router hijack hijinks, a backdoor found in VIA C3 processors, a trusted-client attack on WhatsApp, a macOS 0-day, a tasty new feature for Win10 Enterprise, a new Signal-based secure eMail service, Facebook's FIZZ TLS v1.3 library, another Let's Encrypt milestone, and then "FaxSploit" the most significant nightmare in recent history (FAR worse, I think, than any of the theoretical Spectre & Meltdown attacks).

SN 674: Attacking Bluetooth Pairing

Security Now (Audio)

This week we examine still another new Spectre processor speculation attack, we look at the new "Death Botnet", the security of the US DoD websites, lots of Google Chrome news, a push by the US Senate toward more security, the emergence and threat of clone websites in other TLDs, more cryptocurrency mining bans, Google's Titan hardware security dongles, and we finish by examining the recently discovered flaw in the Bluetooth protocol which has device manufacturers and OS makers scrambling. (But do they really need to?)

SN 673: The Data Transfer Project

Security Now (Audio)

This week as we examine still another new Spectre processor speculation attack, some news on DRAM hammering attacks and mitigation, the consequences of freely available malware source code, the reemergence of concern over DNS rebinding attacks, Venmo's very public transaction log, more Russian shenanigans, the emergence of flash botnets, Apple continuing move of Chinese data to China, another (the 5th) Cisco secret backdoor found, an optional missing Windows patch from last week, a bit of Firefox news and piece of errata... and then we look at "The Data Transfer Project" which, I think, marks a major step of maturity for our industry.

SN 672: All Up in Their Business

Security Now (Audio)

This week we look at even MORE, new, Spectre-related attacks, highlights from last Tuesday's monthly patch event, advances in GPS spoofing technology, GitHub's welcome help with security dependencies, Chrome's new (or forthcoming) "Site Isolation" feature, when hackers DO look behind the routers they commandeer, the consequences of deliberate BGP routing misbehavior... and reading between the lines of last Friday's DOJ indictment of the US 2016 election hacking by 12 Russian operatives -- the US appears to really have been "all up in their business."
