Threatpost News Wrap Podcast for Nov. 9

The Threatpost editors break down the top news stories from this week.

Midterm elections aside, it has been a busy week in the infosec world. On Monday, the Pentagon suddenly started uploading malware samples from APTs and other nation-state sources to the website VirusTotal. On Wednesday, Cisco in an advisory revealed that it had “inadvertently” shipped an in-house exploit code that was used in test scripts as part of  its TelePresence Video Communication Server and Expressway Series software. And the market leader in commercial drone technology used by government, energy and public safety, DJI, patched a cross-site scripting bug on Thursday that could have been used to hijack user accounts and their sensitive data and images.

In Threatpost’s weekly news wrap up, editors Tom Spring, Lindsey O’Donnell and Tara Seals discuss the biggest news reports of the week.
