Transatlantic Cable Podcast

As we pick up the stories for the weekly podcast, Dave and Jeff often bounce a story out there asking if anyone really cares. So needless to say, there are stories that inevitably wind up on the cutting room floor. This week, there really weren’t many of those moments as they looked at topics that could relate to everyone. To kick things off, they look at how a McDonald’s drive thru was hacked in the 90’s – who hasn’t dreamed of messing with people over one of those speakers? The second story combines new research on how insecure USB drives are and also, how people buying used SD cards can get more than they expected. From there, they hop over to a recent breach within the social media app Timehop that has impacted around 21 million users. To wrap up the 45th edition, they take a look at Twitter’s crackdown of fake accounts.
