Smashing Security podcast #199: A few tech cock-ups, and one cock lock-up

Industry veterans, chatting about computer security and online privacy.



An internet-connected adult toy could leave its users encaged, the official NHS COVID-19 contact-tracing app alarms users, and would you be happy if a robot interviewed you for a job?
