Smashing Security podcast #301: AI chatbot or the start of Skynet? Eufy privacy, and hot desks

An AI chatbot is causing a stir – both impressing and terrifying users in equal measure. A security researcher discovers that a “smart” cam that doesn’t use the internet is err.. using the internet. And university students revolt over under-the-belt surveillance.

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 Host Unknown’s Thom Langford.
