Complete Privacy & Security Podcast E030: Faking Your Own Death with Elizabeth Greenwood
This week we talk with Elizabeth Greenwood, the author of Playing Dead: A Journey Through the World of Death Fraud, about faking your own death. We also tackle listener questions and provide a new Facebook OSINT technique.
1. The new ProtonMail VPN does not have a Mac client (only Windows). I have had issues getting the VPN to work reliably on Mac. Any ideas? Viscosity https://www.sparklabs.com/viscosity/
2. When using an email client or webmail, is there anything to be cautious of when using reading panes? To be more to the point, can there be security issues with this as opposed to only seeing a list of messages which need to be clicked on to be opened in a new window in order to prevent opening possibly malicious code in unrecognized messages?
3. In the previous podcast, Michael mentions using a Linux VM within Windows or Mac. What do you think of dual booting a Windows machine running Windows 7 on one partition, with a Linux distribution on the other partition. Would this still provide sand boxing capabilities?
4. When using Firefox or chrome for daily browsing, what do you recommend for bookmarking interesting urls? Do you sync?
