The Security Box podcast directory

When I started the Technology podcast in March of 2006, I intended for it to be an all round podcast from Security news, demos on software, blindness related stuff and much more. In about 2016 or so, maybe later, I noticed more breaches and vulnerability disclosures in my feeds than anything else, and the tech podcast took a huge break as I was covering the same things all the time.

Someone approached me and wanted to do a tech and security program, and that 2018 show didn't last very long. The show only lasted 5 episodes. While I saw potential, I felt that this show just wasn't cutting the mustard of my standards! Meanwhile, I continued to do tech podcasts sporadically, but I knew the security field needed to be covered.

In 2020, I approached Herbie, the main owner of 986 the mix, KKMX International and asked if there was room to do a show about security. While we have a full-time tech and music show, mine was specificly going to cover the landscape which seems to be my life, and I have hosted it since July of that year.

The Security box is a weekly show that covers the security landscape, and may contain some tunes. We take anywhere from 3 to 4 hours, and there are a few longer ones, but the typical show is somewhere in that neighborhood. Some may be shorter.

The show may contain some adult language in discussion, please keep this in mind when listening.

On today's program, besides talking about the beta of EMHS which is still in development, we finally touch on something I tried to cover in earlier podcasts. What is that, you say? That's DomainKeys Identified Mail otherwise known as DKIM. We've been needing to cover this for quite awhile, but I'm not familiar if whether we did, and while other topics we've covered on NCSAM this year we've covered in the past, this one I don't think we did. We also cover the news from the blog and other things on participents minds. I hope that you enjoy the program as much as I have bringing it together for you, and thanks so much for listening! We can't do the show without you.
podcast 116 (91.75mb) October 12, 2022 On this program, I'm alone today talking about SMS and its very interesting issues. I'm not saying its a bad thing, but there are things about it that can be of interest. The linked article may need work, but can be used to gain knowledge.

It stands for National Cyber Security Awareness month, and various countries call it something different, and may cover different things. On week 1, which officially starts on October 1, we talk about passwords. Besides learning about 10 passwords that you should probably not use, the artivle we take from takes this in to aidifferent demention, covering different categories like food and drink, curse words, sports and more.

podcast 112 (131.69mb) September 14, 2022 Who Knew! Podcast 112 is going to talk about one time passcodes being a corporate liability to business, as actors or cybercriminals can take advantage of the common user to give up these codes so they can log in and take control of one account. How 1-Time Passcodes Became a Corporate Liability is the article we'll be referencing, and there is no wrong answer when giving your opinion on this one. This article comes from Brian Krebs, shortly after the fiasco that we didn't talk about last podcast which the article that finally got published covered, his blundering mistake which wasn't IMHO. With that said, we'll have news from around the landscape and we'll see what others within the club have to say about this or anything else on their mind.
podcast 111 (142.71mb) September 7, 2022 Hello everyone, welcome to the Security box, podcast 111.

Seems as though they hold on to our geolocation way too long in my opinion. Article on the blog, but well worth the research. News, notes and more.
podcast 110 (124.97mb) August 31, 2022 Besides news notes for podcast 110, this program talks about an article we found on the Paypal invoicing issues that has arrisen. Seems as though legitimate accounts were used to send real invoices out, yet the invoices were not sent by the legitimate owner.

According to the article, it seems to be covering a lot of varying scams which may include Crypto, romance, and investment just to name a few. Don't let me tell you about it in the show notes, the article is titled Massive Losses Define Epidemic of ‘Pig Butchering’ and it comes from our buddy Brian Krebs. Besides that, we'll go through the blog, we'll see what other things participents want covered, and maybe we'll answer any questions that might come across.

Besides that, we'll check with listeners who have decided to join us on Clubhouse and other participants to see what has caught their attention through the landscape.
podcast 103 (185.96) July 13, 2022 Hello everyone, welcome to the Security bbox, podcast 103. With only one week missed due to commitments, we've reached the two year anniversary of this program on the mix. I hope that we can continue to provide plenty of material as this community still needs to learn what is out there to protect themselves. Nobody is perfect, even yours truly has made mistakes. The question is, do you learn from yours? As we reflect, podcast 52 which was on July 14th of last year, delbt with the water hacks which could have done some serious damage. While we overcame that and learned from that, we've got a bigger issue and that has been the war that Russia has been involved with as Ukraine was its first target and now they're going ahead and targeting other nations. We talked about this war and its potential impacts on this very program and other rooms on Clubhouse. Now, some of what you might see and discussed on this and other circles will be coming true as predicted. No expert said when it would happen and if, but it seems that it is. With that said, today's main topic is going to cover two articles and one man. Links to these articles and news notes and more along this podcast.

You can always comment after the fact by calling our voice mail line at 602-887-5198 and letting me know you want your comments aired. We'll also have some news notes and maybe a discussion on those as well. Remember that the number listed here does not belong to my box on livewire any longer.
