A weekly summary of what I’ve been doing elsewhere on the internets. A relatively quiet week, because I took a bit of time off in Kuala Lumpur and then in Sydney when I returned.
- Patch Monday episode 105, “Crims come to the net: expert and patient”. A conversation with Evgeny (“Eugene”) Aseev and Nathan Wang from Kaspersky Lab, recorded in Kuala Lumpur.
- 18 infosec fails that let crims win, ZDNet Australia, 12 September 2011. A checklist based on Evgeny Aseev’s presentation.
- Infosec’s mega marketing misalignment mishap, CSO, 13 September 2011. An overly-alliterative rant about Symantec’s dodgy 2011 Norton Cybercrime Report.
- “Insidious” cyber chaos too fast for ASIO (contributor only, as Liam Tung actually wrote the story and I just inserted a few facts), CSO, 15 September 2011.
- Yet another free pass for Aussie spooks, CSO, 16 September 2011.
Most of my day-to-day observations are on my high-volume Twitter stream, and random photos and other observations turn up on my Posterous stream. The photos also appear on Flickr, where I eventually add geolocation data and tags.
