"We've put audio and video from the show there so if you miss an episode you can go back or you want to just go back in time to go all the way back to two thousand four you can see what we're talking about in two fifteen years ago tech is changed a lot fifteen years I hope I'm doing this in fifteen years because it be funded to say remember number twenty nineteen and we had to drive our own cars so much yet to cook because you didn't have the fabricator in the house you know that was before they even invented it Hannah so great we still remember paper money all what a crazy idea what do you think you think twenty in what will that be let's say at twenty thirty five what we what we'll be talking about twenty thirty five the show eighty eight eighty eight S. Leo my number back to the law phones ago Jeff is in Marshall Illinois thanks for hanging on Jeff Leo laporte the tech guy hi Leo have a birthday thank you I'm a kill Kim okay go what can I do for you well you know for your birthday I don't know I would say that some families really think it's a big deal in the I just didn't grow up think it was a big deal and and now that I'm older I don't even want to think about it so but that's alright it said better than the alternative is my wife keeps telling me yeah what I want to talk about the status security why it is the way it is and and what will we do about it in the future to make it better I I even have a just a quick example of something that was really bonehead at this one company that wait I discovered that the password recovery it was sent the password was sent in plain text in the email yeah here's a password nice yeah and I didn't know about this and they actually did take care of it no actually called me back and said Hey thanks for letting us know and you know blah blah blah here's what we did you know it was actually ended up being they're a software provider that provide their soft so the CTO knew better he just didn't realize he'd never had occasion to ask for new password yeah yeah and that's where that's one kind of calling you know when a company is not that their software and one of this company wrote the songs were you know what they make me think like were they thinking I think I think we should do is segment we can easily do it what were they thinking so I don't want to be too hard on companies because security is hard so limp there's a few things at play here first of all there's no such thing as perfect software every program has bugs you can just eat any program of a any reasonable size and the programs we use today including our operating systems are massive is gonna have flaws and it is often the case that those flaws can lead to security problems exploits often that it said if you can figure out a way to crash a program remotely you could figure out a way to hack it because you know that's a prelude to a crash there is a prelude to being hacked so that's problem what one is just it's in the nature of the beast software and hardware so incredibly complex that it's inevitably going to have flaws now we've exacerbated we've made it worse in all the number for a number of ways one is we use languages that allow programmers to make dumb mistakes so there are generally more flaws then there need to be programming industries kind of waking up to that but remember coders who are writing software there often on deadline there's a lot of pressure sometimes they take that quick and easy way and sometimes they miss you know things that you might think there are obvious because they're under such pressure so you know there's a lot of factors that go into this there's also the issue of testing both Microsoft and apple have recently come under a lot of fire because they've had broad public tests of both windows ten an iOS thirteen and despite that despite the fact that millions of people use it for months many very serious bugs went undetected and people are saying well how could that happen and this is the this is the complexity of what we're dealing with maybe those bugs reported but the systems that the company set up were adequate to do you know handling the inflow of bug reports may be the bug was introduced later what one of the things apple says they're going to do and they did they did say this publicly but they said it and then all hands meeting is they're gonna have switches that you can turn off features while you're testing because the problem's been with so many new features you can have some of the bugs that you're not sure exactly what's going wrong there's also it's also possible to fix the wrong book and then there's the problem you alluded to which is poor security practices and that's a big problem I think companies in in light of all these breaches lately are kind of understanding that they cannot be a cavalier about security but some of these mines that comes from a day when you just really didn't have to worry about security none of the tools we use were designed with security in mind especially the internet I want at once asked Vint cerf was often considered the father of the internet he created the the protocol the the the rules for communicating called T. C. P. for computer communicating computer computer the last man is there anything in hindsight you have done differently they said yeah with a built in encryption when they first design the internet when they first design email many cloud systems many operating systems they were designed you know to work efficiently but they were never designed with the mindset that somebody might attack from and that's what's changed you know that's changed dramatically in twenty years we used to be able to use email and not worry about the fact that was you know on encrypted it was anybody could read along the way anybody could spoof it but one spam became a problem people start to think maybe we should have been a little more careful about designing this problem is too late everybody's doing it the old way and it takes a concerted effort to redo how you do email or any of these things I think you did the right thing whenever you see something you know you were thinking so it with the if you put your security had on your thinking what the threat model could be a lot of people don't want to think that way they don't want to think I like a bad guy thinks they will they don't they want to you know they wanna think everybody's trust where the the world is a wonderful place and we don't have to worry about attacks but a good security expert unfortunately it's actually a hardship for them thanks constantly thinks the worst right everything you know the wars what's the worst that can happen there disaster minded it's kind of an occupational hazard same thing with backup right you you got to think what's the worst that could happen and slot people don't live that way I don't wanna live that way but never the less that's how you have to if you're gonna be a security expert so you did actually one of the things is most helpful you will you notify the company and by the way kudos to the company they responded it you said look the you know it's in security set a password in in in in the clear an email there's even more subtle things that companies do all the time I see it all the time that are just security nightmares and you know they're a lot of reasons it's expensive to fix that maybe they don't know maybe they know but they can't you know a lot of times a company say you can't have a password longer than eight or ten or twelve characters that's that's not a good policy but maybe their system is set up in such a way that they can't do any better and custom millions to fix it the other thing that's more insidious and then I'll I'll stop because I'm not stop talking on this one but the other thing is really insidious and sometimes we don't take into account many companies know things they could do to make it more secure but they also know that if they do that they're going to get a lot more tech support calls it's going to cost them money sample banks should absolutely never use text messages SMS to verify your log in that's just known to be a real security flaw but they do it and they continue to do it even though they know better because any other solution would cost them lots of money in tech support because people go on confused I don't understand how does that work I lost my password I don't know what to do now so a lot of contents company specially big companies make decisions that are less than optimal security wise just because it would be too expensive it would it would confuse their users to do anything properly that's a that's an education problem that's something I need to work harder on teach people how to do things right so that we are all a little bit more aware of the issues in security it's a really good question and it and there is a man as you can see the many reasons why we aren't as secure as we ought to be really the the number you know the chief reason as we've been doing this for a long time and stuff creeps up on your gradually it's called entropy it's good it's the it's the way of the world I'm glad you you know what you did the right thing though Jeff I think it was good you call the company I'm amazed they responded yes they did they they actually email me still different times I'm surprised it got out of the four states people nobody that kept going wrong negative finally to the CTO so that and that's another thing a lot of companies doing more should do which is having people in charge of security that the title is C. so chief information security officer and every company that has personal information or needs to secure Loggins isms should have a C. so and the team a security team and when the secure when the sea so comes to the CEO it says boss we got a problem you need to spend a million dollars the boss has to do it and one of the ways we can sure this is what I was talking about the beginning of the show it's important that the laws punish companies that don't protect our data so that there is a penalty for not doing the right thing because otherwise they'll say well yeah fine so what if there's a if there's a break and we'll deal with it then and that that's it's got it there's got to be some.

<SpeakerChange> <Advertisement> <Music> <Music> <Music> <Speech_Music_Female> okay so <Speech_Female> let's dive into this <Speech_Female> april thousand <Speech_Female> twelve a guy <Speech_Female> named she <Speech_Female> wang walks into <Speech_Female> a provincial <Speech_Female> immigration office in <Speech_Female> china <Speech_Female> end i understand <Speech_Female> officials become <Speech_Female> suspicious <Speech_Female> <SpeakerChange> yeah <Speech_Male> well they they <Speech_Male> recognized him <Speech_Male> first starters <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> they saw him he's <Speech_Male> carrying some documents <Speech_Male> a stack of documents <Speech_Male> and so one of the senior <Speech_Male> immigration <Speech_Male> officials from the sketch <Speech_Male> when saw <Speech_Male> him walking in <Speech_Male> with these documents <Speech_Male> suspected <Speech_Male> that they were <Speech_Male> a immigration <Speech_Male> applications <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> and this set off <Speech_Male> alarm bells forum <Speech_Female> and <SpeakerChange> why did it <Speech_Female> set off alarm bells <Speech_Female> he mentioned before that they recognize <Speech_Female> them <SpeakerChange> yeah <Speech_Male> so she <Speech_Male> wang has <Speech_Male> had already <Speech_Male> at that point been <Speech_Male> suspended <Speech_Male> from using the scotch <Speech_Male> when immigrant nominee <Speech_Male> program which is the <Speech_Male> immigration program <Speech_Male> here in the province <Speech_Male> back <Speech_Male> in two thousand eight <Speech_Male> m officials <Speech_Male> determined <Speech_Male> that he had been <Speech_Male> offering jobs <Speech_Music_Male> with <Speech_Music_Male> companies <Speech_Music_Male> that didn't exist <Speech_Male> okay andy <Speech_Male> had also been <Speech_Male> offering <Speech_Male> jobs we <Speech_Male> as a company <Speech_Male> like legitimate companies <Speech_Male> where <Speech_Male> he didn't get <Speech_Music_Male> be appropriate <Speech_Music_Male> a consent <Speech_Male> of the people <Speech_Male> who actually owned <Speech_Male> a company so he was suspended <Speech_Male> for a couple of years <Speech_Music_Male> then he walks in with these <Speech_Music_Male> documents <Advertisement> this <Speech_Music_Male> sends up some <Speech_Music_Male> alarm bells <Advertisement> ferry officials <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> <Speech_Music_Male> <Music> <Music> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Music_Female> an idea <Speech_Music_Female> here being <Speech_Female> he's offering <Advertisement> <Speech_Music_Female> jobs to people <Speech_Music_Female> said that they can <Speech_Female> get to <Speech_Female> the statue in easier <Speech_Male> right <SpeakerChange> yeah <Speech_Male> so this <Speech_Male> is part of <Speech_Male> a program where people <Speech_Male> can come to canada <Speech_Male> who are seeking <Speech_Male> permanent

"Zero zero one seven four nine zero zero zero. You know, if you've seen that. Yeah. That's Skype spoof in the call system the system. So there's certainly ways if you're savvy enough just don't rely on star six seven caller ID blocking doesn't do anything. Disabled. Am I? Interesting. Insight. Good to know, Jeff and meals Ville, Wisconsin. Hello, Jeff, Leo LaPorte. The tech guy. Hi, Jeff, welcome. Yeah. I was. What to on the on the podcast it? I'm waving at you right now on our podcast video you'll see a week from now. Well, anyway. Very oh, you see. There's a little delay streaming video. It takes a while. They have to compress it and send it out. So seconds later. You'll see you'll see the answer to your question. I heard you talking about, you know, with this call thing while I'm calling you right now on new voice. No, some of my friends phones. It comes across as respected. Let me ask Kim Kim. Can he's anonymous he's anonymous as an honest, and he called, and he said, can you see my phone number, and I said, Nope. So there you go Google voice. That's the key. Yeah. No. Here's here's a question though. Well, I've got a question on a TV was original thing, but I can call the hospital in power. In the low tedious telecom all right here in income on you know, the oval in a. Bill Nye call. Oh, through a local, you know, switchboard end do they know it's you know, what it comes as I'd never asked him. How shows up? Yeah. The if I go to call my local pharmacy now, they're Roble switchboard. They won't take it. All. Yeah. That's probably a setting more than anything else. They've probably the pharmacy said, I don't wanna get any robo calls or blocked off. But that system as I've pointed out is really kind of antiquated doesn't work anymore because first of all there are plenty of technologies robocalls, use it all the time to support the caller ID. That's why frequently when we get robo calls these days, it's not only from our area code might even match the three number exchange that were from. So I get calls from seven zero seven seven seven eight which is my local neighborhood phone exchange, even though the colors in Russia, or who knows where the Cayman Islands, so that's spoofing. And it's easy for them to do the equipment exists. It's not expensive. There's even digital ways to do it. So anybody that's blocking calls because. Call is blocked is really living in you know, this two thousand ten times have changed. Caller ID is meaningless now. Unfortunately, as I pointed out, my doctor, always uses a caller ID blocked phone number for privacy reasons. So I can't block all all blocked calls. I because I wouldn't be able to talk to my doctor if he's calling me with important news. I wanna know. Son. You're dead. What? We just got the results back. How is the quality of this call? This is good. Is this Google voice? Yeah. You said it was. Yeah. Sounds great. Okay. I had a question about okay. I've got to tell you L C TV eight. Yeah. Happy happy TV. Yup. Yup. But now with four K HD are and stuff like that. I been shopping around and I'm getting married. Maybe make the move, you know, so we'll get this TCL sixty five built in built in route role. It's Fourcade a c r. I have spectrum. Charters spectrum as my for lighter. Uh-huh. Well, they provide a no. Look up. You'll be. He'll so, of course, they're internet will work just fine. But if you wanna watch the cable TV, you almost certainly need a decoder box to work with the TCL. It's rare that TV's now will work with the cable without any additional hardware that they've stayed cable companies now scramble it for you know, because they don't want you to steal it the service. So you almost always needed a coder box. In between. Now, if you're asking me will you get four K almost certainly not to my knowledge. No cable company is offering four K over its standard broadcast channels in some cases, you can watch like we were able to watch the summer Olympics. A couple of years ago streamed in four K, and I have to tell you the experience was terrible that was through Comcast xfinity. Because even though I have a lot of bandwith at home. They apparently didn't have a lot of being with it there. It was stuttering. Pause. Just wasn't a good experience. Four K HD. Are there's only a few places you're going to really get good for cage to are the best is if you buy a new Blu Ray player a you HD player and they're not expensive. The prices have dropped quite a bit. I think you can easily get one hundred one hundred dollars and Samsung makes them variety of other companies, and then you'll have to buy the fifth special four K G R discs. And you'll be surprised how few movies.

"Santa Ana, Leo LaPorte the tech guy. Hi, jeff. Leo, harry. Now, I hear you fine. Thanks for calling. Thanks for taking my call. I've done gone. Really, wet tro for my father was World War Two veteran, and electrical engineer nice always told me do not give up your land line while not many people have nowadays. I've said the same thing in why he said that was back in the day. The reason that Ma Belle got a monopoly is because the country wanted. I think quite rightly so to have an absolute reliable communication network, especially in case of emergencies. So you're old fashioned phone. I know, you know, this, but I'm gonna tell everybody your old fashioned phone line. The one that doesn't plug into the plug socket but just into the phone Jack that phone is powered by the phone company. So if the power goes out, if there's a disaster, it will still work you can still call for help. And that's why your dad quite rightly said keep that land. Landline? Unfortunately, those days are gone Ma bells no longer a monopoly and the phone companies have slowly been and in some cases, he legally cutting the copper to your house, and that means for many people that old fashioned landline. Powered by the central office is no longer an option. Yes. Or a central office or the old mechanical switching? Yes. Yes. Oh, those were the days operator. So am I you know a bit of a nerd well? Thank goodness for amateur radio, by the way, because that is something that will continue to work in emergencies ham spent a lot of time they have field days, they spent a lot of time getting trained and when emergencies happens things like Qatar Turkey Cortina ham step up, those amateur radio operators do become a very vital communication backbone. So we are very lucky to have those great amateur radio operators like you throughout the country. Thank you. So in the meantime, other than ham, and, you know, picking up a or somewhere, or you know, duplex or simplex what recommended? Fortunately, I'm proud to say this disabled, I've the last person to call nine one one. But if I have to you need it. This is important first responder..

And you know, what's fun about the Grammys. For people in production is just waiting for the audio. What you guys were talking about yesterday yesterday. Scott Wilkinson, I were talking about it most memorable and I felt really bad. Adele, who I think can sing I think she could sing pretty well. She can sing. But if you were to watch the Grammy's, he would think oh my gosh. She's flat. You can't sing because she was getting the wrong sound back in her ears and that same Grammy. I think had several problems metallica's lead singer. You couldn't hear him as Mike was off for a while. Thank god. I didn't have a job anymore. You got to figure. Well, but it's hard. It's hard because it's all live. Yep. There's lots of microphones. I mean, I think it's I'm not sure I'm completely. I mean, I'm I'm sympathetic. Hers. Right. So you would think that those things were all set. The I don't know. I don't know. Live is always fun accepted. Do we get it live here on the west coast? I think we do they're starting what red carpet at four. So maybe. Yeah, we are. Yeah. I think I like it. I don't like when they do award shows after the fact, well, yeah. Because you if you're on social media, which you're not everybody from the east coast hosting what's going on tell you. We successfully watch the Super Bowl. Well, that's live on TV. Oh, no. No, no, I devoted and came home. A couple like probably hour and a half two hours into the game. Yes. Start at the beginning. Of course, we didn't skip the commercials. That's the fun part. Yeah. And and watched it all the way through got one little spoiler. Somebody texted Leeson said boy this game doesn't get interested in the fourth quarter. I know that's interesting at all. That's a spoiler though. Right. Because you know, because we're watching and there's some threats and they thought oh, maybe they're going to score. But then we found out can buy that text rambler when you figure it out was that Johnson was that John going. Oh, that's actually Burke Burke, Dirk still hasn't watched. It burke. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to spoil it for you. Burke is not into this. Care less. All right. You've been answering the phone since early in the morning. Yeah. Ten minutes ago, and you have some phone calls to take what we should. I start line three Jeff Bakersfield. All right. He thank you Kim. Hello, Jeff, Leo LaPorte. The tech guy. Thanks for taking my call. I appreciate it. My pleasure. Thanks for calling. Kind of. I'm an old timer with an old time, computer. I've got a one of the series Dell computers. They still make them. So that doesn't say it's old. Well, mine's ten years old. That's all. Two thousand nine on computer terminology. That is prehistoric. I always say computer years, you know, dog years they say seven dog years for every human year. I'd say computers about fifteen. So that's a hundred fifty year old computer treated nice well beyond the problem. Is it works fantastic and runs like a clock? So you go. My issue is I'm also a little bit of an online game or not heavy duty. But there's a few games I play with some of my buddies online. And what I'm finding is newer games are now coming out with direct x eleven slash twelve is coming is here, but my video card Max's audit direct x ten. So I've been searching and searching to upgrade the card I called del multiple times. And they have told me there's nothing you can do you have to get a new computer? I take that with a grain of salt. But I've done some research and the Kurds. I'm finding all seem to have eight pin. Connectors now for the to the power source, and my our services to six ten connector is on it. So there's actually two problems one is that you have a piece UPI slots, right, right? But not expressed slots there are plenty of only video cards, but the best cards are all express. Then there's that power issue. But you could get it. I'm pretty sure you could get an adapter. I don't think that's an issue. That was kind of my question because I did see there wasn't a data. Get again to researching and reading things that. It didn't perform well. There were issues that could be created by using the adapter. So I just. I was kinda hesitant. Our other issues too because you're on the slot. And because you have what's the processor in that must be a core to. Well, it could be I know tonight seven I'm not sure exactly. So early version video games do us both the CPU and the GP they use the CPU to do things like figure out who's around the corner. You know, what you know? They don't do the graphics with it. But they do all the calculations about positioning and so forth with the CPU. And then the GP you renders it draws it. And that's where you need a lot of horsepower. Because it's not merely. The fact that you want to be able to use direct x eleven it's also really these games might not even perform play ably at a frame rate that you would wanna play at if if they don't have enough horsepower under the hood. There's also the issue of the power supply. I'm gonna guess that the real issue with these adapters is not so much the adapters. I don't think that should make any difference. But just that you're if you're putting in an older machine the power supply, he's probably not big enough to this. These slots are up. Actually upgraded at it. So. Okay. Good. You know, I wouldn't spend a lot of money. I wouldn't get, you know, maybe get a tense GT extent sixty or something like that not the latest greatest you might even go to the nine sixty because first of all you're gonna have to find one that does a PCI slot. That's going to be an interesting. Alan. Probably I'm assuming any curve today would be better to the car that I haven't. And now, it's it is a what is a radio HD forty eight seventy so. I identity remember those. Yes. It was a pretty good Kurt at the time. I'm thinking even even a slight upgrade to something that will work in. This computer is probably going to be better than that. One. Is I'm looking at the nine sixty that uses PC I e. You're also going to have the issue with your slot. It's probably two point. Oh, I'm guessing it is. So there's really going to be a small subset of video cards. You can use with this. The question is whether they'll even. Whether there'll be any any any additional speed most powerful. This is. Most video cards, and our I express this is going to be an interesting challenge for you. If you can find a card, I wouldn't hesitate using the adapter because you've got enough power supply. I don't think the powered after the issue. But honestly, if you're trying to play video games in a ten year old, computer. It's going to get more and more difficult. You might one thing you could do. Although once you've started this process, you might as well, just buying a computer is just upgrade the motherboard. But by then, you know, now, you gotta upgrade everything else. So. And that's the point. I'm trying to avoid. I mean looking easily probably well over a grand for new computer. Right. Do you? So somebody a chat room saying his ten year old. I seven does have a PCA express lot. So maybe.

They also have an that this year one the value of electronic shootout, the eight nine f- either way, man. Oh, L E D TV. All does that look good. It just looks so good, especially the HD that's more important than the four K. Although together, you get a screen that just. Is mind boggling, Jeff and Raleigh North Carolina. Leo laporte. The tech guy. Jeff. Leo, thanks for taking my call. I've been watching it and been a fan since the call, call bless you. Thank you. That's been quite some time. We started call for help twenty years ago. Great show. Thank you. That's what introduced me to the tech world. Geek. Yeah. Right. So I've got a question. I've heard you talk about the financial online software. Yeah. Yeah. That. But it seems like every day we hear about another another database getting hacked or another company getting hacked. And I just wondered how safe it is. I I lean towards me. But I know there's some other options like quick books out here. Yeah. What so way? Quick books and has an online version as well as a standalone version, and I don't if most people use the online version we do in our business office. So. To put this into perspective, we use into its business bookkeeping suffer QuickBooks, and it's got all of our data stored online men. Sameness shoots from Intuit. Its it's an entirely online. There's no desktop version of of men checkbook program. That's suitable. I think for consumers rand users. It's what I use. In both cases, there's a risk. Of course, anytime you put anything online. There's always the risk. We just heard yesterday about the second largest data breach of all time. Mary IDs Marietta, Starwood booking system was hacked half. A billion users information revealed, including some pretty private information in some cases credit card numbers, but passport numbers addresses phone numbers. So and and when when you look at what Mary was doing clearly, they were not paying attention to security at all. They they found out about this last week. But they said, but we believe that we were hacked it began in twenty fourteen four years ago. And even the most rudimentary security system has intrusion detection mine does at all man at work. And we'll know if somebody's on your network, and so it's crazy that they didn't know that for four years. Hackers had the run of the place. So and there's lots of other issues with the way, they were keeping things secure. I think I believe quicken is better than that. There has been no known breach of quicken data. And now, thanks to the general data protection regulations in Europe. And I'm sure that European customers use QuickBooks and use mint. I don't see any restriction on it. If there is a breach companies, according to GDP are have to tell the public within seventy two hours of learning of it. That's why when Mary I've found out about it last week. They told everybody right away. There's a huge fine. If they don't. So this is I think good news in the sense that if there is a breach you'll at least know it if you're asking in particular about your banking credentials. I think that's the thing to worry about. I mean, it's one thing if somebody gets a look at your Bank account. It's another thing entirely. They can log into your Bank account. Right. And in order for you to use QuickBooks online or mint online or any online. Checking service you have to let them log into your Bank account. That's how they pull the data. And I think you know, I trust it. They used for a long time. And until it used a service third party service that the banks also use called Yoda. They took it in house some years ago. And again, it's a it's a matter of trust everything you do in computing is a matter of trust to some degree or other. I mean, you're still you're trusting even if you use let's say you use as a desktop only know online component. Program like catching or something. Even then you're trusting that that doesn't have a security flaw in it. That's allowing a bad guy to get information from your computer, there's always computing act trust. But so is driving down the road. You're trusting the guy coming the other way is not going to fall asleep and plow India. So we life is trust in the civilized society. Unless you're living out in the woods. You've got to trust somebody I trust into it. I said our business, you know, my business uses QuickBooks online. So I and I trust mitt I use it, and I have never heard of any breach or any issue coming coming around with them. Would be compatible to us two factor. Authentication and yes, they use. They offer to factor in absolutely any anything any service at all that offers to factor you should use it. So that protects that keeps a hacker from getting your credentials and logging in your min account, but it doesn't protect you. Because mint and Intuit and QuickBooks at anything you use it logs into a banking has your log in information. As a token that allows them to get the logging and it and I used to factor on my Bank as well. But in order, so that means it's kind of an extra step to get meant to get into my Bank, and I have to renew it every few months that at least as good news. At least it won't be permanent access to my account. And all of that, even then if us to factor, you're still vulnerable to a breach of quicken. So that's the problem is that you can do everything you want. I mean, I'm sure I'm sure if I had a star Watertown town, I guess I did that. I if I had to factor. Available. I would've used it. I certainly used last passing a long password that protects you a little bit. Because if the password to your Starwood account got out at least. You know, you could change it and to factored keep somebody from getting into it. But it doesn't protect you against the data that's stored by Starwood and similarly wouldn't protect you against data stored by into it kind of makes sense. So used multi factor for sure, but it's not the be all and end all to protect you against the data breach. Right. Pass does work. You said, absolutely. Yeah. With those. One last quick question. If I may. In the past one year. Sponsors was was crow XP, and I've been a customer there for a while and have had liked their service. But I wondered if they were still a good choice or think so. I don't think. So it makes me nervous. When I see and pro ex-pm does this. When I'm see them offering drastically discounted lifetime. Memberships I think if you search around you can find it pro XP and account for life for fifteen dollars or something like that that's concerning because there's no way they can run that business profitably and do that. And with a VPN service. Again, trust right, anything any service us online. You wanna make sure that they're making money, otherwise, they're tempted to maybe sell your information, or you know, do other things put ads VPN services have been known to put ads into the stream. I'm not saying that I don't think they are. But but I I worry when I see deep discounts on a VPN service. I know we all want to get a deal. But sometimes it's too good to be true. And you want the companies that you're trusting you want them to make money. So there'll be incentive to stay secure. Right. Right. Right. Right. So yeah. I think it's fine. I would look and see. I don't know. I only heard it's maybe not true that they were offering a fifteen dollar lifetime membership. I bet you there were other things involved that would get the money somehow that made me a little bit nervous when I saw them deep discounting like okay, that's infect why we should I'm enjoying their ads..

"Liam panel versus the Sony eight nine f Oletta and in the value TV shootout, the nine f edged out the LG just by a hair. I think both would be very good. But if you remember when you're doing expert reviews a slight difference is not this is a an art more than a science. So I just want to give credit to Sony. They also have an old lead that this year one the value of electronic shootout, the eight nine f- either way, man. Oh, L E D TV. All does that look good. It just looks so good, especially the HD that's more important than the four K. Although together, you get a screen that just. Is mind boggling Jeff in Raleigh, North Carolina. Leo LaPorte the tech. Hi, jeff. Leo, thanks for taking my call. I've been watching you been a fan since the call call day. Oh bless you. Thank you up until SBA quite some time. We started calling for help twenty years ago. Great show. Thank you. Introduce meet us to the tech world. Geek. Yeah. Right. So I've got a question. I've heard you talk about the financial online software. Yeah. Yeah. That. It seems like every day we hear about another another database getting hacked or another company getting hacked, and I just wondered how safe it is. I lean towards me. But I know there's some other options like QuickBooks south here. Yeah. Quick books and has an online version as well as a standalone version, and I don't most people use the online version we do in our business office. So. To put this into perspective, we use into its business bookkeeping suffer QuickBooks, and it's got all of our data stored online mid same issues from into it. It's it's an entirely online. There's no desktop version of of men checkbook program. That's suitable. I think for consumers for end users is what I use. In both cases, there's a risk. Of course, anytime you put anything online. There's always the risk. We just heard yesterday about the second largest data breach of all time. Mary ids. Marietta's Starwood booking system was hacked half. A billion users information revealed, including some pretty private information in some cases credit card numbers, but passport numbers addresses phone numbers. So and when you look at what Mary was doing clearly, they were not paying attention to security at all. They they found out about this last week. But they said, but we believe that we were hacked it began in twenty fourteen four years ago. And even the most rudimentary security system has intrusion detection mine does all mad at work. And we'll know if somebody's on your network, and so it's crazy that they didn't know that for four years at hackers had the run of the place. So and there's lots of other issues with the way, they were keeping things secure. I think I believe quicken is better than that. There has been no known breach of quicken data. And now, thanks to the general data protection regulations in Europe. And I'm sure that European customers use QuickBooks and use meant I don't see any restriction on it. If there is a breach companies, according to GDP are have to tell the public within seventy two hours of learning of it. That's why when Mary at found out about it last week, they told everybody right away. There's a huge fine. If they don't. So this is I think good news in the sense that if there is a breach you'll at least know it if you're asking in particular about your banking credentials. I think that's the thing to worry about. I mean, it's one thing if somebody gets a look at your Bank account, it's another thing entirely if they can log into your Bank account, right? And in order for you to use QuickBooks online or mint online or any online. Checking service you have to let them log into your Bank account. That's how they pull the data. And I think you know, I trust it. They used for a long time. And Intuit used a service third party service to the banks also use called Yoda. They took it in house some years ago. And again, it's a it's a matter of trust everything you do in computing is a matter of trust to some degree or other. I mean, you're still you're trusting even if you use let's say you use as a desktop only know online component. Program. Like, ka ching or something. Even then you're trusting that doesn't have a security flaw in it. It's allowing a bad guy to get the information from your computer. There's always computing is is act trust. But so is driving down the road. You're trusting the guy coming. The other way is not gonna fall asleep and plow India. So we life is trust in the civilized society. Unless you're living out in the woods. You've got to trust somebody. I trust Intuit. I said our business, you know, my business uses QuickBooks online. So I and I trust mitt I use it, and I have never heard of any breach or any issue coming coming? Would be compatible to us two factor. Authentication and less. Yes, they use. They offer to factor in absolutely any anything any service at all that offers to factor you should use it. So that protects that keeps a hacker from getting your credentials and logging in your min account, but it doesn't protect you. Because mitt and Intuit and QuickBooks and anything you use it logs into a banking out. Has your logging information has a token that allows them to get the logging and it and I used to factor on my Bank as well. But in order, so that means it's a kind of an extra step to get meant to get into my Bank, and I have to renew it every few months that at least as good news. At least, you know, it won't be permanent access to my account. And all of that, even then if us to factor, you're still vulnerable to a breach of quicken. So that's the problem is that you can do everything you want. I mean, I'm sure I I'm sure if I had a Starwood account, I guess I did that. I if I had to. Factor. I would've used it. I certainly use last pass along password that protects you a little bit. Because if the password to your Starwood account got out, at least, you know, you could change it and to factor keep somebody from getting into it. But it doesn't protect you against the data stored by Starwood. And similarly, it wouldn't protect you against data store. Buy into it kind of makes sense. So use multi factor for sure, but it's not the be all and end. All it's not to protect you against the data breach. Last past does work. You said, absolutely. Yeah. With those. One last quick question. If I may. In the past one year. Sponsors was was crow XP, and I've been a customer there's a while and have had liked their service.
