Can the CIA recover from Wikileaks releasing documents on CIA hacking tools?
The anti-secrecy website Wikileaks has published thousands of the CIA's secret documents, including what it says are it's hacking tools. Founder of Wikileaks, Julian Assange said that, after some thought, he will give technology companies exclusive access to these cyber-weapons, so that they can be defended against. This has caused quite some embarrassment for the CIA, as the agency who is supposed to protect us, is somewhat unprotected. Joining Nigel Cassidy is Jason Murdock, Technology and Cybersecurity reporter with the International Business Times to discuss further.

How will the Government assist vulnerable tenants being pushed out of the exorbitant private rental market?
According to The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) latest residential market survey the UK’s most vulnerable tenants are being pushed out of the private rental market due to rising rents and benefits cuts. However, could the government offer some assistance? Respondents to the survey suggested that more than half of the UK's private landlords would be prepared to rent their properties to homeless people or those on housing benefits if the Government introduced some form of state-endorsed deposit guarantor scheme. But is this really feasible? Joining Nigel Cassidy to give his analysis is Simon Rubinsohn, Chief Economist at RICS.
