About this Episode

A game about Squid Game pulls the rug from under cryptocurrency investors in what appears to be a scam, PayPal hackers use a devious trick to break into 2FA-protected accounts, and have you received a job offer that's too good to be true?

All this and much much more is discussed in this celebratory edition of the "Smashing Security" podcast by computer security veterans Graham Cluley and Carole Theriault, joined this week by Dr Jessica Barker.

Plus don't miss our featured interview with the CEO and president of Qualys, Sumedh Thakar.

Oh, and huge thanks to Darknet Diaries' Jack Rhysider, F-Secure's Mikko Hyppönen, The Cyberwire's Dave Bittner, and Host Unknown's Andrew Agnês, Thom Langford, and Javvad Malik for their special contributions to this episode.
