In a new "Smashing Security" podcast we chat with Jamie Bartlett about his hit "Missing Cryptoqueen" podcast, amongst... uh... other topics.

On our latest podcast we're joined by the hysterical (in a good way) @maria to discuss:

✅ Kaspersky's ugly fingerprint replacement
✅ How NordVPN might be avoiding Disney+'s blocks
✅ Why a hacker posed as a music producer
✅ Behavioural biometrics
✅ Much much more!

Alright, I tried this on Twitter and it failed, so let's see if it works here.

I'm looking for a to help me with EliteSec, specifically around marketing and lead gen. This is my first startup, but I'm not new to the culture, just running it. It's an consultancy but I'll admit that I've been a corporate shill for 20+ years now and I don't want that anymore.

Please boost for exposure.

Jail for bomb hoaxer who targeted Super Bowl, Houses of Parliament, and schools for Jewish children.

Sextortion with a twist of Litecoin.

Internet users are being sent sextortion emails, claiming to have recorded videos of their X-rated website visits and demanding payment be made in Litecoin.

Good luck to my cool podcast partner-in-crime Carole Theriault who is appearing at the LastPass event up in Manchester with Jessica Barker this evening.

I gave her a call earlier today to see if she was prepared and had finished packing her suitcase...

"Not all cybercriminals are evil geniuses" - my talk from in Dublin this week.

Thanks to everyone who came along to see me speak - it was great fun.

I've always been a bit puzzled that I had to log in after confirming my email address. Well, some kind person just added an account using my email on Curious, of course I confirmed the address and suddenly I was logged in, no password required. Might not be the best solution. No money on the account though...

In the latest "Smashing Security" podcast: A bank has some of the worst password advice ever, travellers are told to be wary when USB charging their smartphones and laptops, and a gamer has his YouTube account hacked.

Twitter warns verified users against attempts to mislead public after Conservative factcheckUK stunt.

If politicians are serious about the need to rebuild the public's trust, deceptive stunts like the one pulled off last night by the Conservative Party need to be consigned to the trash can.

In the latest "Smashing Security" podcast, cryptically entitled "A buttock of biometrics", we discuss:

→ Labour's "sophisticated" cyberattack
→ Apple's sexist credit card
→ Google's Project Nightingale
→ Much much more!

The British Home Office's app for EU citizens applying to live and work in the UK post-Brexit "could allow hackers to steal phone numbers, addresses and passport details."

But is this something worth losing any sleep over?
