About this Episode

Cheap Android smartphones sold on Amazon have been sending customers' full text messages to a Chinese server, ski lifts are found to be the latest devices left open to abuse by hackers, and we remind you why password managers are a good idea on World Password Day. Oh, and our guest serenades us with a hit from the 1980s!

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 journalist and broadcaster David McClelland.
