- What happened during the last 8 minutes of Episode 108 part I? - We released 0day exploits for Microsoft, Apple, and Cisco products, good one too. But, it was sensored by forces larger than us on the Internet, sorry.
CEO of anti-ID-theft company has his ID stolen - [Securethoughts] This idiot was so sure of his company's product that he posted his SSN and other personal info on billboards and buses. Turns out several drivers licenses were taken out in his name, and one guy got a $500 in his name too. In my opinion, the only reason nobody has actually gone out and stolen the whole of his identity is simply because it would be far too obvious and risky, thus not worth the effort.
Check Point Full Disk Encryption for Mac OS X - [Securethoughts] Check Point, makers of the industry-standard for full-disk encryption (formerly known as PointSec), have released their 'Full Disk Encryption' software for Intel Macs. This will allow Mac-based companies and users to gain the added security of an encrypted boot disk, a step up from OSX's built-in FileVault which currently only encrypts the users' Home folders.
