A little about Zoom vulnerabilities and data leaks and Cisco Webex vulnerabilities. We talk about security Kubernetes and how the same security principals apply, vulnerabilities in ICS systems and how hackers can help improve society. Oh, and smart toilets that scan your, er, logs.

Zoom, Kubernetes, and Hacking
As if the world couldn’t get any weirder, this AI toilet scans your anus to identify you – This is amazing, I was like “Holy crap”: In fact, it will capture both your pee and your stools on video and process them with algorithms that Stanford News says “can distinguish normal ‘urodynamics’ (flow rate, stream time and total volume, among other parameters) and stool consistencies from those that are unhealthy.” Also, I did not know this: In fact, the toilet has a built-in identification system that scans your anus: a biometric that turns out to be like fingerprints or iris prints, Gambhir said: We know it seems weird, but as it turns out, your anal print is unique.
Vulnerabilities in B&R Automation Software Facilitate Attacks on ICS Networks | SecurityWeek.Com – “A malicious attacker could hijack the initial DNS request to the B&R update server and direct the update utility to retrieve the updates from his own site. Since there was no proper verification of the update server or the update package, at this point the attacker could exploit the path traversal through the update vulnerability, and execute their own code on the Automation Studio host in SYSTEM privileges.” If the updates are not signed, you don’t even need the traversal vulnerability.
Schneier on Hacking Society – Schneier’s big idea boils down to this: “Can we hack society and help secure the systems that make up society?” he explains. One component of hacking society is what Schneier calls the public-interest cybersecurity technologist, a role for security experts that he has been advocating over the past year or so.
