Smashing Security podcast #256: Virgin Media just won't take no for an answer, NFT apes, and bad optics
After a brief discussion of the Log4Shell vulnerability panic, we discuss how Virgin Media has got itself into hot water, a fat-fingered fumble at the Bored Ape Yacht Club, and how to hack around your girlfriend’s facial recognition.
All this and more is discussed in the latest edition of the award-winning “Smashing Security” podcast by computer security veterans Graham Cluley and Carole Theriault, joined this week by Mark Stockley.

The first annual 1Password “State of Access” benchmark study illuminates the grave dangers unwittingly posed by checked-out, apathetic employees — including security professionals.
Burned-out employees are 3 times more likely to say security rules and policies “aren’t worth the hassle,” and nearly half of burned-out security professionals say it’s unrealistic for companies to be aware of and manage all apps and devices that employees use.
