Gerry and Steve discuss the penalty exacted on a Florida man who was responsible for opening a malicious email leading to a ransomware attack. They discuss UChicago’s and Google being sued for (maybe) improperly handling patient data.

As always they end with One Cool Thing.
Florida Man Fired for Falling for Phish
