Smashing Security #068: Malware from outer space!

If aliens did contact us would it be safe to open the email? Why would MoviePass track film lovers after they leave the cinema? Would you know how to get around Malaysia when your car rental website lets you down? And will Graham *please* stop talking about text adventure games?

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, who are joined this week by journalist (and possible spy) James Thomson.

      You may not believe this, but I actually tried to track down the music from “A for Andromeda” to accompany the piece… I decided in the end that something else worked better, but maybe I should have stayed with my first instinct.
