NC #627 12 Year Anniversary, 3 Chit Chats is Better Than 1, Akyumen Projector Smartphone, Cinamaker Multi-Cam Live Production, Security Bits

We have a huge show today. Steve’s put out two more video interviews from NAB in Las Vegas, I’ve got a pretty big announcement about Chit Chat Across the Pond, and we’ve got another giant Security Bits with Bart Busschots. I told him maybe when there’s such a big security news week we should call it Security Blobs!

There are five Security Mediums in this episode. We’ll talk about a remote code execution built in Intel CPUs, Bart will explain what can go wrong with two-factor authentication through SMS, we’ll cover the Google Docs phishing worm and how Google could have prevented it, we’ll learn about how the beloved Handbrake servers got hacked causing distribution of malware, and as if that isn’t enough we’ll talk about the WannaCry worm that has indiscriminately taken down networks across the globe.

NC #577 Two-Factor Authentication with Google and then Apple, Hazel Video Field Guide, Security Bits

I bit the bullet this week and turned on two-factor authentication for both my NosillaCast Google Account and my Apple ID. It was an “interesting” adventure in the same vein as the Chinese curse, “May you have interesting times.” The two experiences were really different and I’m not sure which one was better. In-between those two discussions we’ll cleanse our palettes with a discussion of David Sparks new Hazel Video Field Guide. After we’re done with the two-factor discussion, Bart joins us for Security Bits.
