Show notes: Risky Business #266

Risky Business. Now in Hi-Fi STEREO!
December 7, 2012 -- 

Here are a bunch of links to the news stories discussed with Adam Boileau in this week's edition of Risky Business. I've also thrown in a link to the story about the Austrian police arresting the operator of a ToR exit node, PLUS Senetas's hybrid quantum encryption product page... because YEAH SCIENCE! MR. WHITE!! YEAH! (And yes, I wrote that because there's a Heisenberg reference in this week's sponsor interview.)
