Smashing Security #035: Up the Roomba with mandatory Chinese spyware

All this and 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 Dan Ring.

    I'll bet this is going to bee good. I like the first part of the title. I've never heard any one say, "Up the Roomba", before. They sure can say it now.

      This house layout data could also be sold to the Peelers or the military, etc. to clamp down on anyone for anything.
