This morning we released the second episode of our new podcast series ‘Big Bugs’ hosted by me. This episode, embedded in this post and available on SoundCloud, takes a look at the recently popularized bug, ImageTragick. I discuss the detection and remediation time line of the widespread bug in the image processing suite, ImageMagic, as well as the implications it has for developers and researchers.
