SN 650: CryptoCurrency Antics

Security Now - Tue, 02/13/2018 - 16:25

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.

SpaceX and Starman #1257 - Geek News Central Audio

Geek News Central - Fri, 02/09/2018 - 00:55

SpaceX and Starman completely made my day and I 100% geeked out. I still cannot get over the images from space of the Tesla Roadster and the Starman who was wearing a real Spacesuit with a Mannequin inside. You have to hand it to Elon Musk. Also of note, I found out some incredible info, I was not aware of about salary collection information by Equifax and other.

A new 0-day Flash exploit in the wild, what happens when you combine Shodan with Metasploit?, Firefox 59 takes another privacy enhancing step forward, a questionable means of sneaking data between systems, another fun SpinRite report from the field, some closing the loop feedback from our listeners, and a look at the early emergence of Meltdown and Spectre exploits appearing in the wild.

SpaceX Falcon Heavy Launch #1256 - Geek News Central Audio

Geek News Central - Tue, 02/06/2018 - 01:11

Still on the hunt for two writers and I am also considering finding a permanent guest host that can fill in while I travel. Good suggestion by one of our Ohana members. Details on the show. I will be extending my Orlando stay a couple of days so that opens up my chance to go to KSC a bit more while the rest of my gang is at Disney.

The big launch by SpaceX is today and I am really excitted to see if the Falcon Heavy makes orbit. Elon Musk says its a 50/50 chance.

Self Driving Cars #1255 – The real economy Impactor - Geek News Central Audio

Geek News Central - Fri, 02/02/2018 - 01:02

I am not sure why I did not think about this before and maybe I am not alone but remote controlled cars and trucks may impact the trucking industry even bigger than what I assumed self driving vehicles would. The new studio setup is really making a positive impact more than I thought it would.

Geek News Central - Tue, 01/30/2018 - 01:13

Well, big changes here in the studio and it may have been Intel’s fault. You should watch today’s video for the first 15 minutes or so as I take you on a tour of the studio, unlike anything you have ever seen here. Plus lots of great listener feedback from previous shows.

Elon Musk's great ideas: Tesla, SpaceX, flamethrowers. Apple HomePod arrives next week. Google Clips camera is not at all creepy, we swear. Nobody won the Lunar X Prize. Amazon Go officially opens.

CNN – Beme – Neistat #1253 - Geek News Central Audio

Geek News Central - Fri, 01/26/2018 - 01:22

I talk quite a bit today about the failure of Beme and someone I admire Casey Neistat and my disappointment on what I heard today and the hard truths about running a business. Plus an absolutely shocking story that has me nearly speechless. I’m serious you are going to be outraged, shocked and in disbelief of what some companies allowed a Russian Defense Agency do. On the road to recovery but your geek is at 100% task saturation again. Such is life.

SN 647: The Dark Caracal

Security Now - Tue, 01/23/2018 - 17:32

The Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities continue to dominate the week's news. So we'll first catch up with what's new there, then discuss the new Net Neutrality violation detection apps that are starting to appear, a new app and browser plug from the search privacy provider DuckDuckGo, a bit of welcome news from Apple's Tim Cook about their planned response to the iPhone battery-life and performance debacle, a bit of errata and some feedback from our terrific listeners. Then we take a look into a state-level, state-sponsored, worldwide, decade-long cyber espionage campaign which the EFF and Lookout Security have dubbed: Dark Caracal.

We invite you to read our show notes.
