Hackable?

A podcast from McAfee
hackablepodcast.com https://hackablepodcast.com

We see lots of movies and TV shows where hackers can infiltrate our lives with just a few keystrokes. But is it real? We’re here to find out. Malicious cat photos, sketchy Wi-Fi networks, rogue rentals, all-knowing webcams - those are just a few topics tackled in Hackable?, where we let our hackers shed light on just how secure we really are.

Winner of Best Branded Podcast - 10th Annual Shorty Awards.

This podcast may use tracking and attribution, dynamic content insertion and uses a unique domain

Stats: Statistics are produced by Simplecast, Podtrac and Chartable to help Hackable? to understand how many downloads it is getting, or how many people are listening. Your device’s IP address and user agent is used to help calculate this figure. Simplecast, Podtrac and Chartable are IAB v2 certified.

Tracking and attribution: Chartable or its partners may connect the fact you listened to this podcast to an action elsewhere on the internet. For example - it may spot a device that downloaded an episode of Hackable? later visited the website of an advertiser; or it may track that a device that listened to Hackable? also listened to a different show. This form of attribution is used to measure advertising effectiveness.

Dynamic content insertion: Simplecast may use limited data that they know about you - the device you’re using, the approximate location you’re in, or other data that can be derived from this, like the current weather forecast for your area - to change parts of the audio. Hackable? may do this for advertising or for other forms of content, like news stories.

Hackable? is able to use the above tools since its podcast host or measurement company offers this service. It doesn’t mean that this individual podcast uses them, or has access to this functionality. We use open data.

This podcast uses a unique RSS domain. This podcast is the only one that we’re aware of which uses a domain of feeds.hackablepodcast.com for its RSS feed. Domains are always visible to anyone who can see your internet traffic - your internet service provider, employer or even your government - even when you use HTTPS connections. If your podcast app uses the RSS feed directly, like Apple Podcasts, then you can be tracked as a listener to this podcast every time your phone checks for a new episode.

Here’s more about insecure links and unique domains.
