Free security video exposes "drive by download"


Have you heard the term "drive by download attack," but never really seen one in action? A twelve minute video featuring network security analyst Corey Nachreiner, CISSP, uses Ethereal and other packet sniffing tools to show exactly what happens when a malicious Web site force feeds malware to your computer. Last month the video was available only to paid subscribers to the LiveSecurity Service, but now any Wire reader can view or download it.

The quirky tone of the video, which looks like a broadcast from Corey's cubicle, drew some controversy from viewers. Many loved the humorous touches, while others found it "too cheesy." You be the judge...WatchGuard Wire: RSS Feed | WatchGuard Technologies, Inc.
