34- DAD SHORTS: Seriously though, CHANGE DEFAULT FREAKING PASSWORDS!

Episode 34: DAD SHORT- Seriously though, CHANGE DEFAULT FREAKING PASSWORDS!

Well its finally come to this… Ryan has to sit us all down and have “the talk”… about changing the default passwords on your devices. I know! I know! Its scary and it takes an ENTIRE MINUTE to do so but really guys… just… go do it if you haven’t! We explore some of the reasons why this week by discussing the dangers of leaving default passwords and settings on network connected devices and equipment, ESPECIALLY ip cameras which can be EASILY VIEWED BY ANYONE IN THE WORLD with tools from websites like insecam.org and shodan.io.

Disclaimer from Ryan: The websites I discuss this week have the potential to live in a biiiiiiiit of a legal limbo. They are crucially important tools used by security experts and white hat hackers for things like network security, penetration testing and exploit hunting. By their very nature though they can also be tools used by less than scrupulous individuals. While I encourage you to check them out because it can be a daunting reminder of why taking basic security precautions are so very very very very important, just be aware that using any of those tools without the proper training or for malicious purposes is obviously not something we would ever encourage or condone. This dad is just saying you need to be on your best behavior and respect the communities that maintain and utilize these tools for positive purposes!

This week Andrew and Ryan take things in a bit of a different direction while they are both hard at work doing renovation projects at their homes. Due to some unforseen scheduling conflicts they have not been able to get together to record a ‘proper’ episode so for the next couple releases they will be releasing some “Dad Shorts”, quick stories about things they are working on or sharing funny family stories!

Once all the projects are done, it’ll be back to dad biz as usual. Until then though, enjoy some shorts as Andrew and Ryan trade off each week sharing something new!

EPISODE 30- YoUr pAssWOrd Is REaLLy rEaLLy bAD!

Disclaimer: This episode is a lot longer than our usual ones but it has some really great tips and content that we felt needed to stay in it but just a heads up that we dont usually go this long

This week the dads return from a longer than anticipated holiday break to jump right into our multi-episode look at online security! Kicking things off we discuss one of the most critical and often times misunderstood aspects of keeping you and your families information safe: Passwords!

Whether you want to explore setting up a password manager such as LastPass or OnePassword, look at getting a hardware 2 factor authentication device like the YubiKey or just use built in options available from IOS and Google Chrome, everyone should be doing SOMETHING extra when it comes to creating and managing strong passwords. 

Lastly, Andrew tells a story about giving out his home address to a shady online website in exchange for .50c screw driver that will almost certainly give him an asbestos rash and then makes the greater mistake of challenging Ryan to see how much personal information he can uncover about him using only his address… GAME ON! We will see what all Ryan can uncover and have Andrew verify all the juicy details on next weeks show!

If you want to do your own research into what all corners of the internet your information may be hiding, here are some good places to start:

https://haveibeenpwned.com/ Put in your email address here and you will be able to see if it appears in the lists of known leaked email addresses tied to major data breaches.

https://namechk.com/ Use this site to search for usernames you frequently use to get a better idea of what all websites you may still have open accounts with. 

Finally, here is an excellent article from PC Magazine about closing some widely used accounts: https://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2386458,00.asp
