Today we run through the major headlines before hearing from Motherboard's Daniel Oberhaus, who wrote about a simple device used to hack through public wifi, and how to protect yourself from it. He spoke with the creator of Wi-Fi Pineapple, a relatively affordable device that can execute hundreds of sophisticated hacks.
