I’ve listened to “Security Now”, TWiT’s “security” oriented podcast, which is hosted by Steve Gibson who is apparently a big internet security guru – so says the website. If the title doesn’t make it very clear why I quoted “security” above, then here is the scoop from Security Now episode 222 (starting at 14:50):

I’ve heard from several others that Security Now sucks (I think also on the Linux Outlaws podcast, which is a great podcast) but I decided to give it a try anyway and it completely failed. I don’t think I’m going to ever manage to hear the rest after that announcement.
Up until that item, they just talked about some “security patches” to MS-Windows applications, which has about as much relation to internet security as telling someone that is worried that people will break into his home to plant some bushes behind his picket fence – i.e. not much except in lay-people’s minds.(2).
