Program Notes for Episode 32:

Linux WiFi Photo Frame

Linux WiFi Photo Frame

Who wants a factory-fresh, worm infected photo frame for Christmas? Not you, we hope!  Read the SANS Internet Storm Center report about the lastest malware infested photo frame, the Samsung SPF-85H. Here is one of many safer alternatives .  The safer alternatives  (example of just one, pictured left) use WiFi and Linux to download photos from email accounts or online photo accounts. The safer alternatives don’t require a connection to a local computer to transfer photos to the frame. This lowers the the threats of malware infecting the local computer due to plugging a factory-fresh, but malware infected, digital  frame into a computer.

Tales From The DarkWeb: Ira has a conversation with Bojan Zdrnja of the SANS Internet Storm Center about a  viscous new DNS attack.
