Listener Email - Tom sent us an email saying : Hi fellas, and suggest we check out his UK forensic blog called Happy as a Monkey.
In the news, Forensic Focus have compiled a directory that details all the academic institutions worldwide that offer computer forensics courses. We discuss an interesting murder trial in Waco TX that has some great forensics work, nice job to the forensic examiner, Neal Kersh. We also discuss a Twitter Jokester being banned for life from an airport after twittering "Robin Hood airport is closed," he wrote. "You've got a week and a bit to get your shit together, otherwise I'm blowing the airport sky high!!" We also talk about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's speech last week where she said that her department will introduce several initiatives aimed at fighting Internet censorship. Clinton said: âThose who disrupt the free flow of information in our society pose a threat to our economy, our government and our civil society. Countries or individuals that engage in cyber-attacks should face consequences and international condemnation.â Last, we talk about the latest Microsoft vulnerability that affects all 32 bit versions of Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2000, and Server 2003 and 2008.
