The NSA and Microsoft gave us WannaCry, but so did people who don't update and patch, and the Shadow Brokers' extortionist Wine-Of-The-Month Club. Denise Howell, Matt Curtis, and Andrew Rossow look at who is responsible, what legal recourse exists, and what steps lawmakers should be taking to fix the problem. Nick Bilton's new book about the Silk Road equates Ross Ulbricht with other Silicon Valley entrepreneurs. An employment lawsuit against Uber sheds light on Uber's massive and meticulously tagged user info logs. 11-year-old Reuben Paul is our new cyber-ninja hero. Extortion is the new black, with Disney as the latest entertainment industry target. How to sue your annoying date. Net neutrality on the run. DR1 drone racing shows how to fly under the radar of FAA drone regs.
