My full output from the AusCERT 2012 information security conference has yet to appear. Stand by. But last night I did a half-hour conference wrap with Dom Knight on ABC Local Radio.
We spoke about the conference atmosphere itself, cybercrime, cyberwar, the risk of Cybergeddon (yes, I know), and the claim by Eugene Kaspersky that Apple is ten years behind Microsoft when it comes to security.
Not that Mr Kaspersky would ever, like, troll the entire planet.

What we didn’t talk about, really, was the two stories that have been published so far:
- Russian crims evade transaction profiling, which details a trans-national organised crime operation profiled by Mikko Hypponen.
- DNS poisoning the thin end of a wedge’, in which domain name system pioneer Dr Paul Vixie supports my argument that fiddling with the internet’s fundamental navigation systems probably isn’t such a great idea.
The audio is of course Â©2012 Australian Broadcasting Corporation, but as usual I’m posting it here as an archive.
