13: Crime and Technology
This week we're talking cryptocurrency and cyber crime.
Jonatan shares a story from Taiwan: when Tai (戴) brings his friend Hu (胡) along to sell some Bitcoin he expects to make a healthy profit. Instead he finds himself in a situation involving forced alcohol consumption, assault and theft.
Ana discusses a virus writer called 'Gigabyte' (aka Kimberley Vanvaeck) who was on a mission in the early 00s to bring down security expert Graham Cluley. Creating the first ever C# virus, Gigabyte decides to share her code on her website but finds herself in legal trouble.
This week we have a cocktail with byte that we've called Vodka.exe- vodka, apple, butterscotch... yes, it's delicious.
