Program Notes for Episode 37
-From The News: Medial ID Theft Final Report, part of Congress’ new efforts to appropriate funds for Federally-mandated, centralized electronic medical records.
-From The News: In a story related to our coverage of the Conficker worm, and the Congressional medical data base story, The Register is reporting, “Conficker seizes city’s hospital network.” Comment from Ira: “This story illustrates that Conficker is exposing much larger security issues on corporate networks, as I discussed in last week’s conversation I had with Randy Abrams, of ESET Anti-Virus.” See Data Security Podcast Eposide 36 for that conversation.
– Tales From The Dark Web: Ira speaks with David Hoelzer, about the 100 million credit card breach at Hearthland Processing. Heartland claims they are PCI-DSS compliant. So, how can this happen? Read David’s blog posting on the topic at the IT and Security Auditing Resources from the SANS Institute.
-MAC Attacks: New MAC attacks that are harder to uncover.
