A ransomware gang has exploited a security hole in software used by many businesses, and are demanding $70 million for a decryption tool. Plus we take a close look at TikTok, and a website which seems to have entirely ripped-off Twitter.
All this and much more is discussed in the latest edition of the award-winning “Smashing Security” podcast by computer security veterans Graham Cluley and Carole Theriault, joined this week by technology journalist and author Chris Stokel-Walker.
