Not one of Google’s 85,000 employees has had their accounts compromised by phishing in a year. How have they done it? Find out in this podcast.
Also, we discuss with special guest Scott Helme how websites still using HTTP are now marked as “not secure” by Google Chrome (and a way in which you can make it even more obvious), and if you’re buying drugs via PayPal’s Venmo app you should say goodbye to privacy.
All this and much much more is discussed in the latest edition of the award-winning “Smashing Security” podcast hosted by computer security veterans Graham Cluley and Carole Theriault.
