While it’s certainly never a good thing to become the victim of a cyber-attack, it can be even more embarrassing if the CVE the threat actor used to get a foothold into your systems was patched a long time ago. In this episode, Jay and Joao discuss malware that’s currently taking advantage of vulnerabilities that were patched over a year ago! As important as software updates happen to be, why are so many organizations unable to keep up with them?
In this episode, Jay and Joao discuss a handful of cybersecurity events in the news.

Security is another layer of a good CI/CD system, and in this episode, Jay and Joao discuss CI/CD and the security aspects of the popular deployment style.
CrowdSec is an Intrusion Prevention System that does things a bit differently than other IPS solutions. It’s collaborative, and open-source. CrowdSec has been featured on LearnLinuxTV a few times in the past, but in this video we’ll explore the CrowdSec Console, which allows you to monitor the security events of your Linux servers from an impressive web dashboard. In this video, we’ll get an overview and see it in action!
Note: This is not a review, but an overview of a security solution that Learn Linux TV is actually using in real-life.
Encryption is a great benefit to take advantage of, especially when it comes to hosting web sites. But how exactly do TLS certificates work? In this episode, Jay and Joao discuss foundational concepts surrounding certificates, as well as some advice and recommended practices.
It’s frustrating when critical infrastructure encounters an issue that results in a disruption of service. High Availability is a concept that aims to help alleviate (or hopefully eliminate) such downtime, and is a very attractive goal for system administrators. In this episode, Jay and Joao discuss high availability, as well as its pros and cons.
