In today's podcast we hear more on how Qatar has accused the UAE of hacking, and vows legal retribution—all on the strength of a Washington Post story. UAE says it didn't do it. Warnings about vulnerabilities in commonly used IoT code. Markus Rauschecker from UMD CHHS on Facebook running afoul of European privacy laws. Tina Ladabouche, NSA GenCyber Program Manager, on the NSA’s GenCyber program, supporting summer camp programs. FBI warns of risks inherent in Internet-connected toys. And people really, really don't read those EULAs.
