McAfee’s Podcast Hackable? is Back for Season Two
We live in a digital era, which means the more things are becoming internet-connected, the more opportunities hackers have to infiltrate our lives. McAfee created the podcast Hackable? to raise awareness about the extreme lengths hackers are willing to go in order to steal our personal information. This show takes hacks seen throughout pop culture and puts them to the test in the real world to separate fact from fiction. And now, Hackable? is back for season two and host Geoff Siskind, with the help of the crew of good-guy hackers, is back with even more excitement.
So – what’s in store for season two? In the premiere episode, “Keyless Entry,” host Geoff Siskind teams up with a white-hat hacker to see how easy it is to break into your car using a laptop. And the fun doesn’t stop there, as with season one, new episodes will be launching every two weeks.
Within these episodes, the crew finds themselves trapped in a smart car wash that’s been taken over by hackers, they learn just how simple it is to crack someone’s password and take over all of their accounts, and they put the security of traditional locks up against the new digital ones.
