In this episode of Security Nation, Jen and Tod chat with Amit Serper, Director of Security Research at Akamai, on his work uncovering a flaw in the Autodiscover protocol within Microsoft Exchange that can leak domain credentials outside an organization. Amit details some of the techniques he and his team used during the discovery – and the five months of research that followed to validate and document their findings, including the social media aftermath of the disclosure.

Stick around for our Rapid Rundown, where Tod and Jen talk about the improvements in vulnerability disclosure time as revealed by the latest report from Google’s Project Zero.
