Episode Notes

Perhaps a total IQ of 197 is a little ambitious, as this podcast clearly shows:

This Week in InfoSec

20th October 1995: Mudge published "How to Write Buffer Overflows", one of the first papers about buffer overflow exploitation. Then @dotMudge sent a copy to @aleph_one, who wrote "Smashing the Stack For Fun and Profit" in 1996. Seminal paper to seminal paper.

20th October 2006: IBM announced it had completed its acquisition of Internet Security Systems, Inc. (ISS).

Billy Big Balls

Javvad wouldn't say who he chose this week...

Sky News has learnt that Goldman has declined to seek a role on the initial public offering (IPO) of Darktrace, a leading player in the provision of artificial intelligence (AI) cybersecurity services.
