In episode 337, we cover “broken” news about the new SSH vulnerability ‘regreSSHion‘ highlighting the vulnerability discovered in the OpenSSH protocol by Qualys and its implications. We then discuss the Detroit Police Department’s new guidelines on facial recognition technology following a lawsuit over a wrongful arrest due to misidentification, shedding light on the broader issues with such technologies, especially their impact on minorities. Lastly, in the ‘Aware Much’ segment, Scott shares essential tips on securely wiping personal data from old PCs, laptops, smartphones, and other electronic devices before selling or disposing of them. Join us as we welcome back co-hosts Kevin Johnson from Portugal and Scott recording from his car!
