About this Episode

Special guest Geoff White can't resist using the podcast to promote his new book, "Crime Dot Com", but other than that we also discuss the creepy (and apparently legal) way websites can find out your email and postal address even if you don't give it to them, take a look at how the alleged Twitter hackers were identified, and learn about Fawkes - the technology fighting back at facial recognition.

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 "Crime Dot Com" author Geoff White.
