The Hacker News (THN) has reported that the latest SecurityTube.net release includes a 4.2Gb DVD containing over 40+ HD quality videos of their WLAN Security Megaprimer.
These videos run over 10+ hours and start from the basics of wireless hacking, then slowly build momentum as the viewer is introduced to some of the more advanced attacks and hacks.

There are currently a couple of hundred clients connected to the torrent tracker showing active downloads from a number of countries.
