Weekly Update 88

Well it's all quietened down here with Scott gone so it's back to business as usual, which means, well, it's not very quiet at all! I've been in Sydney this week talking at one of our big banks and as I say in this week's update, getting out there amongst companies dealing with their unique cyber challenges is always …

Weekly Update 87

We're on a beach! It's the day after 3 pretty intense days of NDC conference and the day before Scott heads back to the UK so beach was an easy decision. The conference went fantastically well and, in all honesty, was the most enjoyable workshop I think I've done out of ~50 of them these last few years. NDC will be …

More than 32k people have listened to more than 78k hours of content in this course making it not just the most popular course I've ever released, but also keeping it as my most popular …

Weekly Update 86

This week, Scott Helme is getting bitten by Aussie critters whilst working from a desert island. He's here on the Gold Coast for the NDC Security event next week so I thought we'd record the update together so we grabbed a couple of cold ones, wandered down to the backyard and recorded there. We cover off a bunch …

Weekly Update 85

It's a (new) weekly update! Lights are in, things are much brighter and... I think it was a bit too bright and the camera was pointed too high. This is all experimentation, folks, and I appreciate everyone's input as I tune things to try and get a consistent, quality result. Still, as someone said whilst I was mucking …

Weekly Update 84

This week... I'm tired. A two-day remote workshop on London hours meant very unfriendly times for me here in Aus but hey, it beats jet lag! So just a very short intro this time, I recorded the update this morning whilst I was rather a lot more awake so I'll let that do the talking. Enjoy! iTunes podcast | Google …

Weekly Update 83

I'm home! Home is good. My travel stats for this year - not so good. As I say in the video, I need to fix this so at this stage, I'm saying "no" to pretty much everything in the second half of the year that involves international travel and I'll just do the exceptionally awesome stuff. But be that as it may, there's …

Is Enumerating Resources on a Website "Hacking"?

I saw a story pop up this week which made a bunch of headlines and upon sharing it, also sparked some vigorous debate. It all had to do with a 19-year-old bloke in Canada downloading some publicly accessible documents which, as it later turned out, shouldn't have been publicly accessible. Let's start with this video …

Weekly Update 82 (Honolulu Edition)

I'm in Honolulu! And I apologise in advance for the audio quality - the background noise is air conditioning units in the hotel and I didn't realise quite how much sound they make until I listened to the audio afterwards. Next week I'll be home and back to a quality audio setup. Regardless, I did pump out a shorter …
