For the latest Kaspersky Daily podcast, Dave and I dive into some of the biggest security stories that may have passed your radar this week.
To kick off episode 107, we head to Kazakhstan. A while back, the government asked its citizens to install a certificate so they could track all traffic. Now Google, Apple and Mozilla have blocked that tracking on their browsers.
We then head over to the twisting saga of Valve and their bug bounty program and a researcher dropping two zero days. This is an interesting tale and one that seems to encompass some of the issues with current bug bounty programs and what is a bug that is needed to be fixed. After that, we head to the all-to-messy tale of a T-Mobile customer who had her information given over to a bill collector creep. This person, in turn harassed her in a serious manner. If you read one story this week, this one is the one to read. The next story takes a look at how Xbox contractors had been listening into some customers voice commands – joining the long list of other companies guilty of this. We end out the podcast with a pair of PSA’s from Facebook. One is a new data deletion feature, or should we say disconnection feature. The other is simply a Please STOP for those posting copyright texts to Facebook and Instagram – they do nothing.
