The chip shortage continues. Razer mouse driver vulnerabilities. Chrome vulnerabilities. Social media-based credit scores. DRM in power tools. Voting machine password treachery. The end of landlines in the UK. Busy week of pwnage. OpSec for the whole family
Morse code for obfuscation, cybersecurity in the Infrastructure Bill, Apple keeps digging their hole, data migration gone bad, first installment of “Who Got Pwnt This week?”

Protip for my listeners: If you want to skip over the introduction, the headlines will generally start at 1:15, and the commentaries will start at 6:18, unless there is a programming note (as in Ep. 45) or a cold open (as in Ep 44) in which case it will be pushed back by a few seconds, but should still be pretty close.
Headlines: latest ransomware victims, cybersecurity from the federal government view, AI botches COVID predictions, barcodes and the EICAR string. PwnedPiper vulnerability on pneumatic tube systems. Secure disposal of old computers. Let’s not return to the office.
