MacBook Air featured in report on hackers at olympics



By

NBC News has a piece on hackers in Russia pouncing on travelers to the Sochi olympics. It seems a little alarmist as it appears the demo is using public WiFi, which should never have an expectation of privacy or security no matter where you’re at.

They showed off a MacBook Air, Windows PC, and an Samsung device. On the demo, they showed malware getting installed on the Android device. They appeared to show some on the PC, but not much specifically on the Mac.

Also, Richard Engel can probably be excused for destroying that MacBook box while opening. It seems he spends most of his days reporting where there’s gunfire and probably doesn’t do many unboxing.
