DDoS (Denial of Service) attacks are incredibly common, and apparently, are breaking records. In this episode, Jay and Joao discuss a recent blog post from Cloudflare regarding how popular this attack vector is becoming nowadays, as well as a quick refresher on Denial of Service attacks in general.
Ransomware is one of the absolute worst things that can happen to your organization, often resulting in weeks of downtime. We discussed Ransomware recently, and now we have an interesting and time-appropriate story – a popular ransomware group apparently had an imposter within their ranks.
Passwords – for better or worse, they’re a reality and something we have to deal with. With the average person having many accounts, it’s gotten to the point where we just can’t manage these by ourselves. Password managers help us securely store these confidential secrets, but recently Lastpass (one of the most popular password managers) has suffered a breach. Although no actual passwords within vaults were cracked, recent events do raise a red flag. In this episode, Jay and Joao discuss whether or not you should trust password managers.
