US elections proceeded undisrupted by hacking. Patch Tuesday review. Banking Trojans, Android trigger-malware, and thermostats gone wild.

Show Notes

In today's podcast we look at Patch Tuesday: Microsoft closes thirteen vulnerabilities (five of them "critical"), Adobe fixes Flash Player, and Google addresses Android issues. "Trigger-based" mobile malware, and why it's hard to see. Why usability matters to security. Tesco continues to recover from ATM fraud. Canadian police surveillance is scrutinized. Thermostat trouble in Finland. The Johns Hopkins University's Joe Carrigan discusses privacy of medical records. Professor Gene Tsudik from University of California, Irvine, explains a potential vulnerability with typing while Skyping. And, oh, we also hear there was some election or something in the US.
