The UK government wants you to give your credit card details to porn sites, Ashley Madison offers compensation to the people whose lives it ruined, and an adult website wants you to pass its unorthodox and below-the-belt biometric identity check… gulp!

All this and Myspace, Google Glass, Fleabag, and much much more is discussed in the latest edition of the “Smashing Security” podcast by computer security veterans Graham Cluley and Carole Theriault, joined this week by technology journalist and broadcaster David McClelland.

  2. This was hilarious. I'm not about to expose myself since I no longer watch porn. It is addictive. However, there was this movie called "porky's" when I was in high school or there abouts which was ~40 years ago. In it someone was naked and standing on his head. The shot was a tight shot of his naked crotch. It looked just like some guy with very baggy eyes and a long nose, Dick Butkiss, an American pro football player was also in it with an "It's not even out of the box joke.
