Ransom acts of kindness are top of our mind, as we also explore how bad bots are hogging more and more of the internet's activity, and look at how deepfakes could be a good thing after all.

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 Ray [REDACTED].
