Welcome to show number 2017.18!

Show Notes

  • We’re late this week. Shaddup.
  • Jon apparently has never listened to the show intro before.
    • We may have been drinking too many Mad Jack Sucker Punches.
    • WARNING: this show is a Nova Scotia Kitchen Party
  • burning wickerKelly may be leaving Jon for her new chair.
    • Jon hates wicker. Wicker is ass.
  • 08:00 – Kelly’s Corner
    • Kelly may think that Biohacking groups fall under the Girl Guides of Canada.
    • PBS biohacking...wha?
    • Russian biohacker is a human compass. Not because he has any interest in magnets. Or north. Or navigation. Or compasses. It’s just cool, man.
      • But it’s only cool for a day or so. Depending on how often he turns north.
  • 23:00 – Jon walks us through the Wanna Cry ransomware attack
    • Kelly discovers “sneakernet”!
    • Spoiler: The Shadow Brokers stole The Equation Group (cough NSA cough) tools and someone turned one of them, ETERNALBLUE, into the Wanna Cry malware.
    • Newfie weapons contain an arse, and all. (get it? arsenal?)
    • Don’t. Click. Links. Seriously, just stop it, people.
    • Jon forgot to read a paragraph of the The Shadow Broker’s recent release. But, you should…their writing is so..odd
    • Spoiler: Someone (cough NSA cough) told Microsoft this really bad exploit had been stolen.
    • So, only neglected Windows systems were victim of this.
    • Between the small ransoms and weirdo kill switch, this attack is straight up weird.
      • Bitcoin wallets: 1, 2, 3.
  • 42:00 – Cooperstown News
