This week we discuss a new non-eMail medium for spear phishing, Chipotle can't catch a break, social engineering WannaCry exploits on Android, video subtitling now able to take over our machines, a serious Android UI design flaw that Google appears to be stubbornly refusing to address, Linux gets its own version of WannaCry, another dangerous NSA exploit remains unpatched and publicly exploitable on WinXP and Server 2003 machines, a look at 1Password's brilliant and perfect new "Travel Mode", Google extends its ad-tracking into the offline world, some follow-ups, miscellany, and closing-the-loop feedback from our terrific listeners... concluding with my possibly useful analogy to explain the somewhat confusing value of open versus closed source.
