276: Webcam extortion, Michael Fish, and food foul-ups

A browser extension bug let malicious websites spy on webcams, hackers threaten the global food supply chain, and Michael Fish (not that one…) hacked into his female classmates' online accounts, hunting for nude photos and videos.

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 Mark Stockley.
