Today we’ve published Episode 12 of Think Like a Hacker
In this week’s news-focused episode we cover the WhatsApp zero-day vulnerability that allegedly was used to infect phones with malware by simply calling a phone with the app. We also announced a new update to the Wordfence plugin, making an updated two-factor authentication feature available to all Wordfence users. We cover a story about SIM hijacking and discuss why we need to move away from SMS 2-factor authentication. We also cover an ongoing supply-chain attack affecting thousands of sites, three antivirus companies that have been compromised, a malvertiser indictment and other stories.
As always you can find episode 12 of Think Like a Hacker
on our blog or wherever you listen to podcasts including iTunes, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Youtube, SoundCloud and Overcast.
