SSCC 56 – Albert Gonzalez, Patch Tuesday, Texas data loss and Adobe zero day

Sophos Security Chet Chat logoMichael Argast joins me this week to summarize the important security news and talk a bit about this week’s Microsoft patch release.

We started with the bizarre tale of Albert Gonzalez and his claims that he hacked TJX while working for the US Secret Service. We discussed the loss of 3.5 million people’s personal data by the state of Texas.

We advised people to watch for attacks targeting the latest Adobe zero day, and looked at the top priorities for deployment this Patch Tuesday.
