SecuraByte Episode 05 Happiness, Fail Whale beaches Itself!!!

News at 11. Well really we started recording about 8 PM on Monday January 5th.  In this SecuraByte episode, Securabit had its largest conference call yet.  Securabit was joined by the guys from both SecurityJustice.com and SMBMinute.com, as well as Melissa on Twitter AKA @Geekgrrl. We discussed the security vulnerability discovered with twitter.com’s tech support.  This is a service many of us use and enjoy.  Please have a listen in while we discuss amongst ourselves.

Don’t forget to give us a feedback on Itunes so we can bump the old shows off the list.

Thanks again for all the donations for the Tip Jar.

    Very interesting post from Richard Stiennon on his prediction of pretty much this very event last November. Perhaps this 'hacker' followed this as a recipe. 🙂
