375: Crashing robo-taxis, and name-dropping rappers

Drones, some coloured cardboard, and a piece of tinfoil may be all the kit you need to crash a robot-driven taxi, and a rapper is accused of using Justin Bieber’s name to defraud a TV company.

All this and more is discussed in the latest edition of the “Smashing Security” podcast by cybersecurity veterans Graham Cluley and Carole Theriault.

Warning: This podcast may contain nuts, adult themes, and rude language.
