On today’s show, we take several of the larger security myths that are often heard around things like patching vulnerabilities — specifically the notion that more patches indicate less secure software. We also talk about other “common knowledge”-esque bits of advice we’ve all often come across. We could do a whole episode on silver bullets that (spoiler alert) wasn’t. Let us know some of your favorite silver flashes on Twitter or drop us an email.

 The timeline:

  • 01:00 — Roundtable: I don’t even know what happened there in the middle, but all mushrooms are edible...
  • 10:45 — Busting patching myths - with side bit of shade to those that would subvert security research
  • 17:50 — Busting dev and ops myths - what in the DDoS is going on here?
  • 22:00 — The Amazing New Hype (and the Tragic Death of X)
  • 29:15 — Closing thoughts, parting shots
