Marcus Ranum Interview

11:00 AM

  1. Marcus, what's the latest on cyberwar? Has stuxnet changed some of your views on Cyberwar?
  2. Speaking of SCADA, what can we do to improve the security of SCADA systems? It seems every month there is a new "SCADA hack" and vendors and organizations that aren't paying attention to security.
  3. Penetration tests are successful, and one of the primary ways in which we are gaining access to systems is through "client-side attacks". Essentially, we are tricking the user into running code, no vulnerabilities or "exploits" required. What can organizations do to protect against this threat?
  4. Speaking of vulnerabilities, there still seems to be a mindset in the community of "become vulnerable, exploit, apply patch, rinse, repeat". What can we do to shift people away from the "patch mindset" to defensive measures that actually work?
  5. Speaking of defensive measures, what are your thoughts on "smart firewalls"? Are they still the stop-gap measure that is masking the real problems?

Ron Gula Interview

1:15 PM

10 Things You Shouldn’t Do For Cyber-Security Awareness Month - According to the Department of Homeland Security, October 2011 is national CyberSecurity Awareness month. With the best intentions, I’ve laid out ten items that you shouldn’t do in an attempt to raise awareness. I’ve seen these items backfire, cause disruption and raise awareness of how security can make our life less convenient and questionably more secure.

Ron's Top Ten List:

10 – Perform a Client Side Penetration Test

9 – Switch to IPv6

8 – Learn Government Compliance Standards

7 – Read Computer Security Related Books of Fiction and Fact

6 – Engage in a religious debate about the most secure OS, phone or Web Browser

5 – Run a Honeypot

4 – Blame any attacks or viruses outbreaks on China

3 - Publish lists of People’s Cracked Passwords

2 – Patch all of those systems that haven’t been patched in a long while

1 - Turn off your Anti-Virus Product

Ancient alien beings, hypervisors and virtualization

7:30 PM

Your host for this journey will be none other than Eric Fitterman!

"Researchers in Central America recently discovered an ancient underground lake containing many new discoveries about the Mayan civilization. Among these discoveries were many mysterious glyphs depicting what appear to be other-worldy beings handing compact disks to Mayan priests. Excavation unearthed some ancient, but usable, compact disks, containing what appeared to be bootable Linux environments designed to reset passwords in VMware's ESX hypervisor. Eric Fiterman, of Rogue Networks, has extensively studied the artifacts from the project, and has learned that ancient alien beings may have given humans knowledge of hypervisors and virtualization long ago.


Eric believes that virtualization and computing were ancient technologies used by the Mayans, and that among this lost knowledge were the secrets of how to recover VMware hypervisor systems without a password. Eric will be discussing this recently discovered artifact, and is releasing a bootable ISO that allows users to restore ESX systems without re-installing the hypervisor."
