To kick off the 148th edition of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast, Dave and I hop into a interesting topic. For those of you who have been on Instagram, Twitter or other social media sites, you have probably heard of OnlyFans.
For those who are unaware, this is a site where users can pay a content producer for exclusive or private videos. Often these images or videos are of the adult nature. However, as with many subscription services there is often an illicit market, this one is no different. From there, we jump deeper into the online world of Warcraft. This story looks at the bot mafias wreaking havoc in the community.
Yeah, I seriously types bot mafia – that is not lost on me. The third story of the week looks at some changes that Apple is making in Safari that could make privacy more up front. The PSA streak continues for the fourth tale of the week – Adobe is advising people to uninstall Flash before its end of life. To close out, we take a look at a story that was birthed after a protest in the recent weeks in the US. The story looks at how the FBI caught a person who lit a cop car on fire during one of the protests due to some digital sleuthing.
