Mensa – the social club for people with high IQs – is accused of not being so smart about security, an Indian TV journalist gets an unbelievable job offer from Harvard, and we take a look at what’s being going on with GameStop short selling.

All this and much more is discussed in the latest edition of the award-winning “Smashing Security” podcast by computer security veterans Graham Cluley and Carole Theriault, joined this week by Mark Stockley.
