required listening for anyone that uses tech

Someone's has an account that gets hacked and they trace through the methods used to accomplish it. I'm listening to this a second time and will take notes about how to protect myself, although I think the show notes hit all the important parts.

thanks - think I'll give it a listen. I don't like that there are vulnerabilities that I don't understand out there.

...that are basically built into current tech best practices. Well, ones using SMS for two factor auth.

Its over hour long, FWIW. They talk about SIM swapping, which is actually a downside of two factor authorization.

But the bigger take is how much of your data is out there -- and how easy it can be to find if you have the right tools.

....Careful the things you say
Children will listen
Careful the things you do
Children will see
And learn
Children may not obey
But children will listen
Children will look to you
For which way to turn
To learn what to be
Careful before you say
"Listen to me"
Children will listen............
