366: Money-making bots, and Incognito isn’t private

Google says it is deleting your Google Chrome Incognito private-browsing data that it should never have collected anyway. Can a zero-risk millionaire-making bot be trusted? And what countries are banned from buying your sensitive data?

All this and much much more is discussed in the latest edition of the “Smashing Security” podcast by cybersecurity veterans Graham Cluley and Carole Theriault, joined this week by Host Unknown’s Thom Langford.
