Defensive Security Podcast Episode 69

Advice from Bob on the importance of an accurate inventory; TrueCrypt meets an unfortunate end; Weak passwords are responsible for the initial intrusion in 31% of breaches; 71% of exploits used Java; 59% of malicious email used an attachment, 41% used a link; NTT’s Global Threat Intelligence Report finds that most incidents are the result of failing to take basic precautions; DHS reports about a public utility compromised by a brute force attack; There is an apparent discrepancy between the severity of the breaches detailed in the recent  DOJ indictment of alleged Chinese hackers and the way that the breached companies categorize was was stolen, and whether that loss needed to be reported to share holders.
