Smashing Security podcast #179: Deepfake Jay-Z, and beer apps spilling your data

Apps that belch out sensitive military information, what could the world learn from South Korea’s digital response to the Coronavirus pandemic, and who has been deepfaking Bill Clinton, Jay-Z, and Donald Trump… and why?

All this and much much more is discussed in the latest edition of the “Smashing Security” podcast by cybersecurity veterans Graham Cluley and Carole Theriault, joined this week by Brian Klaas of the “Power Corrupts” podcast.

Plus we have a bonus feature interview with Rachael Stockton from Logmein, the folks behind LastPass, all about their report into the psychology of passwords.
