Listen: WeWork's Wi-Fi security is trash (The Daily Charge, 9/19/2019)
"Today on the daily charge our first look at the new and improved galaxy fold impossible burgers now at a store near you and we worked. WIFI is woefully weak. Good morning and welcome few CENEX daily charged. It's Thursday September nineteenth. I'm Joanie soften and here art. Today's stories we work likes to pitch itself as a rising tech giant but the company apparently isn't so tech savvy to to put protections on the Wi fi at offers offices rents out the people just looking for a place to work and that's exposing astronomical amounts of Data Alfred Westbound on here so we were it's Wifi. Everyone is on the same wifi network with the same password that goes on at every building so if I know the pastor from one we work. I know the password at like like the majority of we were in New York City so a not safe really bad and also they don't do basic security things on their wifi network like client isolation so they go on the Wifi at a hotel room. I can't see what everyone else is doing on that same Wifi if they have like client isolation which just says I can only see what's on on my own traffic. I can't piece onto other people's traffic. It's very basic security. Measure most hotels are doing this. Most places have shared wildfire doing this. We weren't does not a company that is valued at forty six billion dollars with more than half a million members working out of their everyday of all these startups that have these sensitive documents on their network does not provide basic security measures like that they do provide something called a private villain where which is similar to it but it's a little bit more secure her if you want to pay an extra ninety five dollars a month and two hundred fifty dollars for setup even though people already pay like more than a thousand dollars for rent there they are not providing wireless security measures. We've seen a lot of really sensitive documents from these startups had seen like bank account passwords. log in information like insurance policies job applications. One of the things in your story that really stuck out to me is that it's not only people who work at we work and and are using their WIFI. It's also people are exposed if they simply unknowingly send something to somebody that's working at a we work on the wife. Is that right yeah. We had seen companies that had never worked out. We work but their files were exposed on. We works network because there were working with startups that had been at we were room recalling some of these companies and saying hey do you workout a we work because your documents are on there like network and they said No. We've never really were based out of Connecticut. We've never been in a we were and it turns out. Hey like they worked if somebody that did so even if you never set foot in a we work like if you're working with somebody that does and doesn't you know put on these security measures your documents documents are probably exposed them. We worked network so the things that you've found you only got just a tiny snapshot hostile things that could be exposed in that Snapshot Snapshot. You saw things that are on like the really ridiculous ridiculous in two different ways ridiculous for being like silly and ridiculous for being like. I can't believe that that's just out there for people to the crap. They know how yeah one of the photos that I'd seen. There was a birthday card with like photoshop of Nicholas Cage face on a cat pretty harmless to be exposed on the network but there there were other documents. They're like I had mentioned bank account passwords job. Applications lawsuits were on it because there was a there's like law firms uh-huh based out of that we work like a startup law firm like it's just there and I saw lawsuit related to earn that should not be openly on the network like that right well moving on you may remember the first reviews for Samsung's galaxy. Fold phone didn't go so hot. Some reviewers thought the screen had that little sheet the plastic. You're supposed to peel off when you get anything. That wasn't what it was. It was a protective layer. It was integral to the design and a bunch of reviewers ruined the nearly two thousand thousand dollar phone but the new redesigned fold is finally out and there are a few tweaks what's different unfortunately the noticeable protective layer is now gone so. I can't break the phone by just peeling it. I think they have more like secure seals at the edge of the display now plastic caps at the two points to keep dust lost out. You know you really should not have a two thousand dollar phone that can be defeated by dust and the hinge like that gap is a little bit smaller which I guess is something people might have complained about i. I think the phone is the same as same as well. Yeah I mean we'll have to see how easily it breaks just by folding it which you're supposed to do anyway which like its main feature. Maybe it'll still break. I don't know but I think we've had better reviews of at this time around and finally today the impossible Burger. It's moving to grocery stores the fake meat was the buzz of CAS this year and previously it was only available in restaurants but it may not be at a grocery store born near you quite yet just twenty seven Gilson's supermarkets in southern California. We'll get it starting tomorrow. The company says it will add more stores on the East Coast later later this month and it should be available in supermarkets across the US by the middle of next year so at twelve months package will cost nine dollars. What do you think I mean. I'm probably by it like just to see how it is. I'd rather get that go to or something that has it actually the Burger King near my house is offering it and I walked in and I was hit with this era era of like fast food blasting. I'm good and I turn around one way to cook this in the comfort of my own home one day right yeah and that's maybe one of the plus size is that ah their mission is to replace. It's a it's an ambitious mission that it's replaced animals as a technology by twenty thirty that's extremely Dystopia dystopia and when you frame it that way they wanna get rid of the animals out of the food chain and if they're going to do that it can't just be in restaurant so also just eat vegetables that what is people have been doing that way before this fake meat trend so. I don't understand why everyone's jumping on this now when you can literally eat vegetables instead the thing is people. Don't not just like vegetables people like me. I don't I don't eat meat but people like me and that's probably why for the daily charge. I'm Joan.
