Students are being spied on as they do online exams, how did a televised football match reveal the truth about artificial intelligence, and what on earth is the Canny Lumpsucker vulnerability?
All this 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 Thom Langford from The Host Unknown podcast.
Plus don’t miss the second part of our featured interview with LastPass’s Dalia Hamzeh.
