This week we take a look at VM security with financial services company CSO Adam Pointon and Assurance.com.au's Neal Wise. The fellas say a recently disclosed flaw in the Citrix Xen hypervisor software should give us all pause. There are some exceptionally poor virtualisation setups going up left right and centre, and it's only a matter of time before it comes back to bite everyone.

We'll also check in with Symantec's Tom Powledge, the head of the company's consumer products division. Powledge joins us to discuss Microsoft's decision to give away free anti-virus. He's far from convinced it'll have a negative impact on Symantec's business.

Tenable Network Security CSO Marcus Ranum also drops in for this week's sponsor interview. We spoke to Marcus about his keynote speech from the Hack in The Box conference in Malaysia.
