Security Now! Transcript of Episode #22

Description: Leo and I carefully examine the operation of the recently patched Windows MetaFile vulnerability. I describe exactly how it works in an effort to explain why it doesn’t have the feeling of another Microsoft “coding error.” It has the feeling of something that Microsoft deliberately designed into Windows. Given the nature of what it is, this would make it a remote code execution “backdoor.” We will likely never know if this was the case, but the forensic evidence appears to be quite compelling.

Getting the Video out of Your New iPod–for Cheap!

MacDevCenter.com: Getting the Video out of Your New iPod–for Cheap!

So I buy a video iPod, figuring it would be a cool toy. (Gotta get those toys.) It arrives and I’m ready to give it a whirl. I pony up my two bucks, download the pilot episode of Desperate Housewives, insert a standard A/V-to-RCA cable into the earphone jack and try to play it back on my TV.

No Luck. Damned Apple.

I’m here to tell you not to worry. You don’t have to fork out for an outrageously priced “proprietary” Apple video cable. You don’t even have to buy an expensive dock. You can connect your Video iPod directly to a TV, and you can do it with the ordinary camcorder A/V-to-RCA cable you probably already have lying around your house.
