Security Now #39

I found the podcast Security Now the other day. (Actually it was before I listened to episode 139 of TLLTS which contains an interview with SecurityMonkey. Well, back to Security Now.) It’s a rather good show which offers good explanations, though rather basic sometimes, on security related topics. Episode 38 was on browser security and the latest, 39, discussed buffer overruns. I found it to be a little too basic at times, but it’s a good starting point for someone who’s interested in security but is finding reading about it difficult. Anyone with a genuine interest should go to Google and do some searching after listening to the podcasts.

Oh, for episode 39 I’d recommend having pen and paper nearby, visualising the stack on a paper will make the explanation so much clearer.
