Smashing Security podcast #228: Pipeline pickle, Blockchain bollocks, and Eufy SNAFU

The Colonial Pipeline attack has shone light on the activities of the Darkside ransomware gang, we take a skeptical look at cryptocurrencies and the blockchain, and Eufy security cameras suffer an embarrassing security failure.

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 BBC technology correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones.

Plus don’t miss our featured interview with Vanessa Pegueros of OneLogin.
