@marczak ...or flee to Canada to avoid it like I did! 😁🤣
(Just kidding, I’m actually here for Virus Bulletin.)
It's a brand new episode of "Smashing Security" podcast!
Malicious script is being blamed for the British Airways hack, Trend Micro's apps are booted out of the Mac App Store for snaffling private data, and Paul Manafort's daughter wants Twitter to remove a link.

Some of the most popular iOS App Store apps are selling your location data onto other businesses
Trend Micro apologises after Mac apps found scooping up users' browser history.
(apparently it's the users' fault anyway...)
@retc3 One needs to take great care when accusing a large company of collecting inappropriate data from their users. 😉
In all the talk yesterday about Mac App Store apps exfiltrating data they shouldn’t have, nobody seemed to notice the connection to Trend Micro... and their apps are still up, after Adware Doctor was removed. 😒
@WPalant @graffen @email@example.com @lightone Scary... 😬
Of course, the fact that Keybase is the keeper of your private key (or was, at least, when I was looking into it last) means that it can never be truly unbreakable end-to-end encryption. One breach and all your data could become public.
@aussierockman This is not about phones listening... it’s about specific apps being given mic access and listening. Just don’t give mic access to apps like Facebook. (Or even better, don’t use Facebook. 😄)
@jerry Thanks! This is both similar to and very different from Twitter. (I'm stating the obvious... 😆)
Any idea how many folks are on here?
