Well I go into great detail of how my server got compromised and the fun I had after it was re-provisioned. My word of advice if you have any applications that you are not using on your servers get rid of them, also if your a company that had a product that has a security issue you better get the word out to your customers if you don’t you could end up on the Geek News Central Podcast and 25,000 of my closest friends get to find out how you blew it.

No show notes via e-mail tonight will have it back online of Friday! Torrent RSS feed out of action but direct link is working. Expect some changes in that department by Friday!

Help me give away $127.00 dollars on show number 127 as a Christmas present back to all of you that listen to the show. Listen in for details. How does a show which I estimate will be short on content run 56 Minutes. It’s because I have a lot to say with a lot of content to cover.

Geek News Central gets mention in Pacific Business News

Posted by geeknews at 3:18 PM on November 28, 2005

Last week I did an interview with Pacific Business News and got a decent mention. Their was one minor error. I have essentially two sponsors on the Podcast, Godaddy.com and GotoMeeting.com. Each have a single ad in the show. Otherwise the article was very accurate. [Pacific Business News]
