Slack systems management - the Telnet threat!

This week's edition of Risky Business, our security podcast, looks at how and why Telnet represents a security risk.

This week's Risky Business looks at the depressing state of the Internet in light of a recent Internet-wide scan by nmap creator Fyodor, that  found Telnet is the second most commonly open port.

Marcus Ranum pops in to discuss the possible role of backbone providers in mopping up this sort of outrageously poor systems management.

ZDNet Australia's Munir Kotadia is also along this week to discuss the news, including a few bugs in Google's newly-released Chrome browser, some Facebook application badness, some comments from Microsoft around hypervisor malware and a downright skeletal-challenging backflip on the part of MythBusters' host Adam Savage.
