Chet Chat episode 112 shownotes:
When you press a key in your browser window, where does the keystroke end up? What if you think you’re typing into the topmost, visible window but your keys are being consumed by a deviously-hidden dialog underneath?
Chet and Duck discuss keyjacking, the keyboard equivalent of clickjacking.
Data breach notifications
You might have been forgiven for thinking they were about breach prevention, which left Chet and Duck confused.
Chet even went as far to hope that we don’t end up with regulations about complying with regulations about breach notification.
Apple’s WPA passwords
If you use your iPhone or iPad as a Wi-Fi hotspot, it will generate a human-friendly WPA password for you, up to ten letters-and-digits long. That sounds good, but is it?
Chet and Duck discuss recent research which analysed the algorithm used by Apple and found that it’s not all about size.
