Jack Rhysider from the "Darknet Diaries" podcast joins us to chat about his interview with the elusive Hacker Giraffe, how a death is preventing cryptocurrency investors from reaching their money, and how 'beauty camera' apps are redirecting users to phishing websites and stealing their selfies.
All this and much much 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 Jack Rhysider of the "Darknet Diaries" podcast.
