New Intego Mac Podcast Episode

The Intego Mac Podcast episode 13 is now available!

This week's episode features Kirk and Josh's analysis of Meltdown and Spectre, two vulnerabilities that affect the majority of computers and portable devices in circulation, both of which require software and perhaps hardware fixes to mitigate potential threats. Josh highlights an interview he conducted with a security researcher on some particularly malicious adware/malware, called Pirrit. Our hosts also answer some reader email and discuss password "hashing."
