Spy software known as Pegasus has been used to carry out surveillance on the smartphones of journalists, activists, and political leaders. Can a "Freedom Phone" be trusted? And a ransomware-hit law firm demonstrates how not to keep its customers informed.

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 Thom Langford.
