Informative

Dont be put off by other reviews. Steve gibson is a veteran in the security industrie and has created his own spyware removal tools among other things. While some podcasts may go off topic it is essential listening for Windows/Linux/Mac users. I also recommend downloading previous episodes which discuss topics you may be interested in.

Hans 'Hanseman' Hansen ,

A show for true geeks.

Steve Gibson er ikke bare en dyktig formidler, men også anerkjent innen fagfeltet sitt. Det er en ære å få presentert nyheter fra en ekspert på dette nivået. Her kan både entusiaster og lekmenn ta et dypdykk inn i en teknisk verden vi ellers hører lite om. Det er reklame, men det er å forvente når showet er gratis. Nyter denne podcasten.

Olivier Klaver ,

Interesant å lærerikt

Programmet er en master-class i data
sikkerhet.
