5 - The one about The Curious Case of Conficker (aka Downadup) - Interview with Ken Bechtel

This episode is mainly an interview and discussion with Ken Bechtel, who like me has been in Cyber Security for over three decades. We discuss "the Curious Case of Conficker (aka Downadup), the Botnet that Never Bit.."

This includes what we (as an industry, as a victims) learnt from it. We also discuss AVIEN, Intelligence Sharing, SNORT signatures (for new malware) as well as honeypots, Opaserv (where I was, jokingly, accused of writing new variants of this family of share crawling worms), AutoRun risks, and various other things.

If you want to reach out to Ken, I will include his contact details in the show notes.
