Transatlantic Cable Podcast

Episode 343 of the Transatlantic Cable podcast begins with news that Instagram is testing a tool to help tackle ‘sextortion’, or intimate image abuse. Following that, the team discuss how criminals are increasingly using A.I to defraud consumers out of their money.

The last two stories look at X and ransomware. The first story focuses on how X is automatically removing “twitter” from URLs, providing scammers with a real opportunity – finally, the last story looks at how some ransomware gangs are trying their luck at calling the front desk of businesses, to try to leverage payment out of them – however, it doesn’t always go to plan.
