235: REvil returns, TikTok grows, and Gettr defaced

A ransomware gang has exploited a security hole in software used by many businesses, and are demanding $70 million for a decryption tool. Plus we take a close look at TikTok, and a website which seems to have entirely ripped-off Twitter.

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 technology journalist and author Chris Stokel-Walker.
