This week Justin and Zack realize with terror, that their favorite form of transportation has betrayed them. The NuHarbor train system of choice, Amtrak, found itself on the receiving end of a data breach and unfortunately the train has left the station. The breach appears to have originated within the app used to access your Amtrak guest points system, sharing all the weird things you purchased using your points and your PII like social security number, names, and addresses. At the same time, travel by train is the best and both Justin and Zack said they're Amtrakers for life.
