This week on Cyber Frontiers we jump into and update on the public disclosures of the meltdown and spectre vulnerabilities. We also chat about the latest hardware hacking efforts with ATMs and JackPotting as well as get Christian’s take on Crypto Currency and the coin market.


Cyber Frontiers is all about Exploring Cyber security, Big Data, and the Technologies Shaping the Future!   Christian Johnson will bring fresh and relevant topics to the show based on the current work he does.
