354: Chuck Norris and the fake CEO, artificial KYC, and an Airbnb scam

Chuck Norris gives a helping hand to a mysterious cryptocurrency CEO who may have separated investors from over a billion dollars, generative AI creates a nightmare for those wanting to Know Their Customer, and a determined journalist finally gets their revenge on a sneaky Airbnb scammer.

All this and more is discussed in the latest edition of the “Smashing Security” podcast by cybersecurity veterans Graham Cluley and Carole Theriault, who are joined this week by special guest Maria Varmazis.
