For the 133rd edition of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable Podcast, we set clear boundaries of what Dave and I are not experts on. Spoiler: it is a pretty large list.
To kick things off, we look at the digital impact of the Corona virus (AKA Covid-19). Like many major world events, cybercriminals are using this as a platform for illicit gains. Be careful what you click on friends.
From there, we hop into a story about the tables being turned on a scam call center in India. Now, there is questionable legality to the actions taken, but is still somewhat rewarding for those of us who have been spam called by one of these centers. The third story crosses the pond to the US, where we discuss facial recognition and the protests against it within the country’s higher education community. Cambridge Analytica also comes back to the surface, but this time in Australia and the potential fines that Facebook faces. We head back to the US for a look at some private information being leaked by Comcast Xfinity before we close out looking at some sensitive data found by a dog walker.
