On the Wire Podcast: Roger Anderson

Last year, we talked to Roger Anderson about his Jolly Roger Telephone company bot, a system he designed to frustrate and annoy telemarketers by sending them through an infinite loop of robot responses. Now, Anderson is taking aim at the Windows support scammers who try to scare victims into calling them and paying for fake support for their PCs. We talked to Roger about how he’s trying to disrupt their operations.
