What are the consequences for Yahoo after its latest hacking revelations?
Internet giant Yahoo has revealed more than one billion user accounts may be affected by a hacking attack. This marks the biggest cyber hack to date, with the attack dating back to 2013. It’s separate from a data loss in 2014 when 500 million accounts were accessed. The news comes at a critical juncture for Yahoo, who is trying to sell its core businesses to the telecoms and media company Verizon. Matt Cox spoke to Peter Church, Counsel specialising in data privacy at law firm Linklaters, to find out the consequences.

Is YouTube paying the music industry enough in royalties?
YouTube says its paid the music industry $1bn (£794m) in royalties this year. But that's still not enough according to record companies. They say YouTube does not pay a fair rate to musicians and record labels, and is slow to police illegal and pirated material uploaded by its users. Nine of the 10 most-watched clips on YouTube are music videos, topped by Psy's "Gangnam Style." James Brydges has been finding out more from music law expert Elliot Chalmers.

“Fraud protection needs to be improved – it needs to be real-time” – Tech Consultant Chris Green
A new report claims it’s “frighteningly easy" for cybercriminals to get security details for a Visa debit or credit card. According to research published by Newcastle University, fraudsters used a form of "guesswork", called a Distributed Guessing Attack, to work out expiry dates and security code numbers by making multiple invalid attempts. Share Radio’s Matt Cox spoke to tech consultant Chris Green to understand the research better.

UK tech visa applications on the up – James Brydges looks into the driving demand
Applications from foreign workers who want to work in the UK tech industry have increased tenfold over the last year. It's after the government decided to relax the rules, allowing groups of coders to apply as a group rather than run the risk of being rejected individually. Tech City UK, the organisation that processes the visa applications, says applications had spiked since the Brexit referendum. James Brydges asked Oliver Smith, tech reporter at the Memo, and Megan Caywood, Chief Platform Officer at Starling bank, about what had been driving the demand.
