Episode 98 (Free) Software we dislike!

February 18, 2014

In this episode, Rick Vanover (Twitter: @RickVanover) welcomes back Jason Perlow (Twitter: @JPerlow), who writes the Tech Broiler blog. Rick and Jason talk about the risks of specific "free" software that can cause issues on computer systems through adding pop-ups, sending information or proxy serving other traffic. This is a real risk not only on endpoint computers, but also data center systems that run with service accounts and more permissions. 

Jason recently also shared a video example of where this can all go wrong, in this example on Windows XP.
