Interview: Russell Butturini


Russell Butturini is the Senior Enterprise Security Architect for a large wellness solutions company in Nashville, where he oversees everything security that isn’t compliance (which bores Russell to tears). He has presented at several conferences and authored multiple security tools, such as the U3 incident Response Switchblade, The Network Attached Storage Enumerator, and NoSQLMap. These are amazing accomplishments considering he was once fired from a job at Wendy’s after a week and a half of employment.

Paul's Stories

  1. "telnetd rulez: Cisco Ironport WSA Telnetd Remote Code Execution Vulnerability - Telnet? Really? FreeBSD stopped TELNET being turned on by default when many of us were in like elementary school (except for Jack, who was already issue an AARP card at that point). The vulnerability looks to have been around since 2001. Just how does this old code creep its way into old systems? This is failure to communicate. I fear this behavior will go on forever, as developers are taught to re-use code. Maybe we should tell them to stop doing that.
  2. Google goes beyond two-step verification with new USB Security Key - I am probably more optimistic about two-factor than anyone, however I'm willing to sacrafice some usability for security because that's what I do. However, how do you get two-factor on a tablet or phone that uses USB? Uhhh, you don't. So many of us just rely on our phones to check email and such, this solution therefore is flawed. Also, Macs only come with one USB port (two if you're lucky), so now I gotta break out my hub, and its even more of an inconvenience, even for me. At the end of the day, we're all lazy, and that is why two-factor never really catches on. I think Larry's RFID chip implanted in his hand may be the best solution for all of us.
