The guys discuss a recent privileged account compromise at Microsoft corporate that resulted in an email breach. They speak high-level of API security concerns and what to expect in the future. Finally they cover a recent example of vulnerability disclosure done poorly that left potentially 160,000 WordPress websites being exploited.

As always they end with One Cool Thing.
