Smashing Security podcast #049: Hacking funeral homes, crypto mining websites, and careful with that hairspray

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, joined this week by The Register‘s John Leyden.
