Some of the topics discussed include the spat between Epic Games and Google intensifies after Google discloses a vulnerability in Fortnite, what the recent US T-Mobile data breach means for you and why a fish tank helped (in a small way) to develop some of the modern internet protocols and systems we still use today.

In this week’s episode, Jeff and I look at how Google is being targeted for a class-action lawsuit after it was found to have been tracking users, even if they’d explicitly asked it not to. They also look at how Google turned down multiple request by the FBI for location data, in order to catch criminals after a spate of armed robberies.
Other stories this week include what happens when Gatwick airport screens fail and how the British and Canadian governments accidentally leaked sensitive data via public facing Trello boards.

Today’s podcast comes to you live from New York New York in sunny Las Vegas. In today’s episode, I recap the events of the first day of Black Hat.

The full session overviews can be found below in case you want to do some background research. And if you hear screams in the background, it’s just the roller coaster whizzing by.
