Day 16: The news headlines continue. Conspiracy theories keep emerging. The FUD evolves as people take further liberties with the truth (no mate, you didn’t get done by Heartbleed, you just chose a crap password).
A few days ago I caught up with Richard Campbell of RunAs Radio fame to talk about Heartbleed. You may remember Richard from such .NET Rocks episodes as talking security with Carl, Richard and Troy and Hacking yourself first with Carl and Richard on .NET Rocks. RunAs tends to be a more IT infrastructure orientated show but the thing about Heartbleed is that it really know no bounds; sys admins, devs and even consumers are copping it left right and centre.
This show panned out to be more about a couple of guys talking through how the bug and the security implications are panning out rather than being about what the Heartbleed bug is per se (read my post on Everything you need to know about the Heartbleed SSL bug if you want to know that). It’s about 33 minutes and you can grab it from the RunAs Radio site or listen to it here:
