SN 650: CryptoCurrency Antics

About this episode   English    United States

This week we discuss today's preempted 2nd Tuesday of the month, slow progress on the Intel Spectre firmware update front, a worse-than-originally-thought Cisco firewall appliance vulnerability, the unsuspected threat of hovering hacking drones, hacking at the Winter Olympics, Kaspersky's continuing unhappiness, the historic leak of Apple's iOS boot source code, a critical WiFi update for some Lenovo laptop users, a glitch at Wordpress, a butt of miscellany -- including a passwords rap -- some closing-the-loop feedback from our listeners... and then a look at a handful of CryptoCurrency Antics.

We invite you to read our Show Notes.
