Transatlantic Cable Podcast

Welcome to the 122nd edition of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast. This week, Dave and I take a look at what’s doing the rounds this week in the infosec world.

To start, we take a look at how Evil Corp, a loose coalition of hackers has managed to steal over $100 million from victims – but now the FBI is offering a $5 million reward.

From there, we take a look at how the Which? Consumer group, based in the UK is warning parents about a ‘hackable’ Bluetooth walkie-talkie.  We then quickly move onto how some scammers are looking to profit from the Elder Scrolls Online game by sending out phishing emails and messages (hint: if an email ever asks for your password, delete the email.)

To wrap up Dave and I look at how Tinder users are sharing more than their fare-share of information on the dating platform.
