Customer Reviews

Security Now explores Computers, the Internet, Inner Workings, and Appearances.

Not your typical fanboy show, this usually 60-90 minute podcast tackles Firefox, Mac OS X, Windows, and even Linux. There are a lot of topics discussed on this show. Kindle, passwords, e-commerce, security issues, OS updates - it may not have everything but everything can't possibly fit into a once per week show. Several series are available, including the inner workings (with history) of how computers work. This Award Winning Podcast is in its fourth year. Every other episode features questions from listeners that are timely and relevant.

Great information, compelling ideas, excellent presentation

Security Now is an indispensable podcast for anyone even remotely interested in computer security and safe technology. Steve Gibson knows his stuff, and he can explain concepts and issues in a way that us semi-techies can understand it. This is also a great resource for current issues in tech security that keep you aware of things your company might face--even if you aren't the IT person in your organization.

This used to be a good podcast.

Security Now used to be a good podcast for the average computer user to learn about personal computer security, but it has devolved into "Steve's narcissistic happy hour" with very little security content. On an hour and twenty minute show, there is now only about twenty minutes of decent content sandwiched between iPad/Kindle fanboyisms, potentially dangerous amateur medical advice, ego-stroking, grandpa-like nostalgia over the PDP-8 or the time Steve Wosniak talked to him, advertisements, and an obligatory infomercial for Spinrite. Couple all of that with Steve's self-serving attitudes on certain concepts such as open-source software (it's good when a product he likes uses it, but it's bad when a product he likes doesn't) and a general inability to admit when he was wrong and you have Security Now.
