Geek Reading August 6, 2015

Today we start with some good security articles. First, Reuters reports on US researchers showing how computers can be hijacked to send data using sound waves. Outside of the security implications, this is really cool stuff. The BBC has a good article on some spyware demo that shows how spooks hack mobile phones. This is not cool stuff and generally creepy from the privacy perspective. Some things are just way easier than they should be.

As always, enjoy today’s items, and please participate in the discussions on these sites.
