Smashing Security podcast #231: Sexy snaps and encrypted chat traps

Criminals are caught in a encrypted chat trap, should you trust Apple’s repair team with your sexy snaps, and do you think the FBI should be able to tell who has been reading the USA Today website?

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 The Cyberwire’s Dave Bittner.

And don’t miss our featured interview with Dr Simon Wiseman, the CTO of Deep Secure.
