Security 68 – #Superfish

#superfish is here. Tom and I talk about what this means, and more importantly how to remove it if you are infected. We talk about how this happened, how researchers found the “feature” and what this means to Lenovo.

inThirty 175 – The Internet Wins

We take a look at the decision brought forth by the FCC, and what it means to be a utility as defined by Title 2. Chaim takes the side of maybe a law in 1934 is too old, and should be written for today’s technology.

inThirty 174 – DVR’d News

First off we start with a special announcement. We are going to focus more on quality of audio and content, more than doing a show every week.

We talk about the two news hosting stories of the week. Brian Williams being suspended, and Jon Stewart leaving the Daily Show. We discuss our TV news watching habits.

Security 64 – Google Drive Bug

First off, unless there is a demand for weekly, I think we are going to go every other week.

In this episode we get a viewer email showing us a bad Google permissions bug. We spend the show talking about the bug, what the emailer did (all correct), and what happens when nothing gets done. Tom wrote a blog post detailing it, which you should take a look at.
