Would anyone who listened to last night's* "Dark Web" programme care to tell us their opinion of the show? And what, if anything, they obtained in the way of worthwhile or valuable information?
*Or this morning's show, depending on your particular time zone.
Last night's show was probably the best in months. I don't think Heather gave any value added commentary, she just lucked out in having a knowledgeable guest.
Most of the material regarding security was basic or common sense, but there were several gems that I liked:
*the concept censorship via inundation of true and false material on a common topic
*"air gap security" I had practiced this all along, but didn't know there was a term for it
*reminders of good practice such as offsite backups, cloud storage
*confirmation that my AV is rated as good by the guest
*the use of online entrapment or all out planting by rogue law enforcement (didn't know it was that prevalent)
*confirmation that software driven locks is a bad idea and a marketing game at present
*clarification of why the DNC didn't notify its donors of the hacked CC info (political organization not a commercial entity)
*use of a dedicated, stripped down, well protected machine (without flash installed) to explore the dark web
*practical use of VPNs
*What "Swatting" is and how to prevent it
*general lack of international enforcement and agreements
