Booking.com got hacked five years ago, and didn’t tell its customers… but now we know who might have been behind it. Bossware rears its ugly head again in the workplace, spying on employees. And did you receive a warning email from the FBI?
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 Brian Klaas of the “Power Corrupts” podcast.
Plus we have a featured interview with Perimeter 81 co-founder and CEO Amit Bareket.
