AP REPLAY: What Would KenStalk Do? (Radiolab: Darkode)

Following the recent Ransomware debacle, this week we’re replaying a previous episode covering this topic!

 

The original show we listened to (recommended): http://www.radiolab.org/story/darkode/

Opening the show, Neil thinks his podcatching app is broken and he bangs his head against the CryptoWall. There’s a look at the polite business of Ransomware around the world and the most dangerous town on the internet.

 

Paul and Neil debate the merits of cloud backup — Paul has Fappening doubts. Bitcoin Infiltration “What If…” scenarios are posited and compared with the Apple vs. FBI case.
After looking behind the sofa cushions for that hard drive, and thinking about cashing in his lottery ticket, Neil reminisces about his chum’s TV hacking past.

 

 

To close the show, Neil and Paul listen with deep reverence to Listener Ken[Stalk]‘s voicemail and then discuss What Would Ken/Paul/Neil Do?
