021: WannaCry - Who's to blame?

About This Episode

The WannaCry ransomware has struck! But before we tackle that subject, and who we should blame for one of the highest profile malware attacks for years, we discuss how HP has been unwittingly capturing the keystrokes of its laptop users. Then we briefly discuss what might be the worst cinema date in history, before rounding things off with a discussion of hackers extorting money out of movie studios.

All this and more is discussed in the latest edition of the "Smashing Security" podcast by computer security veterans Graham Cluley and Carole Theriault, joined this week by special guest Paul "Pob" Baccas.
