Usually, the daily newspapers don’t excel when it comes to security coverage, but this week the Washington Post has some great reporting and stories under the “Zero Day” moniker.
Besides interviews with hackers, security professionals and others, there’s a lot of colorful behind-the-scene details that I haven’t seen very often, even in security or IT trade publications.
The series delves into the inner workings of the four zero-day attacks in Stuxnet, quotes from extreme hacker Charlie Miller of St. Louis who previously worked for NSA and details about the search engine Shodan, which many use to find vulnerable systems.
As I say, it’s well worth the read.
