ThreatWire is your source for security, privacy, and internet freedom news! This show is fully funded by our Patrons. Please consider supporting ThreatWire for access to additional content!


ThreatWire by Hak5 launched in 2012 as a quick weekly dose of news about security, privacy, and what is threatening the freedom of our Internet. A couple months later, Edward Snowden showed the whole world that the NSA was acting on secret court orders, collecting call records from nearly every telephone company in America.

In this post-Snowden era, we all want to know what kind of laws are being passed to inhibit our internet freedom and privacy. We are the targets of hacks to companies small and large. If you're like us, you want to know what threats are currently residing in the connected world.
