Welcome to episode 248 of the Transatlantic Cable. In this week’s episode Dave and Ahmed look at some of the more unique or interesting stories to come out of the tech / info-sec world.
To kick things off, they look at a breaking story about how BAYC (Bored Ape Yacht Club, to you and me) is reeling after a hack on their Instagram account led to the theft of quite a few NFTs.
From there, they look at how an actor’s guild is getting increasingly concerned about AI and deep-fakes, calling for reform. Following that, they look at a concerning story around fake reviews and how the US government is looking at legislation to try to tackle rampant fakery.
Wrapping up, they look at news from Google showing that 2021 was a ‘banner-year’ for zero-day exploits and their usage.
