PSN hacked again! :
Just two days after the PlayStation Network was restored after a near month-long outage, the PSN password page has apparently been exploited. According to reports, the exploit allows other users to reset your account password using only your e-mail address and date of birth. This personal data was made available to hackersduring the initial PSN attack.

SecuraBit Episode 36: The f0rb1dd3n Network

SecuraBit Episode 36 – The f0rb1dd3n Network

We are joined by Jayson Street to talk about his book, Disecting the Hack: The f0rb1dd3n Network, that is due out soon. All Black Hat bags will have an excerpt from the book in them.

Additionally we get Jayson’s input on the topic of the recent denial of service attacks not coming from North Korea after all.

DJ Great Scott gives us an update on the social events at this years DEFCON.

Finally we cover media destruction policies. How do you decommission old hard disks? Do you retain the ones from your copiers and fax machines? What about thumb drives?
