We close up privacy week with this little awareness video. We talked about how the bad guys can sniff and snoop, and how you can protect your traffic by using our tips and tricks. There is however ONE factor we cannot do anything about .. and that is about YOUR behaviour. Privacy is not only about what you keep a secret .. its also about what you choose to share. Below is a little Belgian social media awareness video (I’m pretty proud about the Belgian Part) that will make you see how “trivial” information can be “correlated” into something quite .. Scary …. Beware of what you share !
Time to raise the hairs on the neck of all Wifi-enabled laptop and mobile phone users in this interesting interview with Gerjon McVries ( @mcvries on Twitter) about “The pineapple” and its awesome (and malevolent) potential when it comes to exploiting basic flaws in Wifi enabled devices. If you were worried about the NSA sniffing your traffic in the Prism debacle, then try not to realise that a 14 year old scriptkiddie with a paypall account could buy this awesome toy and sniff every bit you transmit.
