3 0 2,888


The second episode of the CheckMates GO Podcast is out, and we have a very exciting episode this time!

We have a fresh addition joining Yoav Arad Pinkas (@yoavara) and myself; Hadar Wiesen (@hadarw), a security analyst in the Managed Security Service team

In this episode we cover the following topics:

  1. The Georgia Institute of technology suffered a data breach, which exposed the personal information of both faculty and students.
  2. ShadowHammer – A supply chain hack of Asus which led to the installation of backdoors in numerous computers.
  3. The emergency tornado alarm system in Texas was compromised, creating panic amongst residents.
  4. Check Point researchers have discovered a vulnerability in one of Xiamoi’s built-in security applications that could allow an attacker to remotely hack the phone.


You may read the full Xiaomi research in the cp<r> blog.

Both of the Threat Intelligence Reports are located here and here.

We hope you enjoy the episode! See you again in two weeks.
