For the 150th episode of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable Podcast, Dave and I start by looking at how EU authorities were able to crack into an encrypted communications platform used by criminals.
This joint operation by multiple law enforcement organizations, saw over 700 arrests tied to criminal activities. From there, we head to India and the geopolitical tension between the country and China. In this instance, the collateral damage of this are influencers, more specifically those who tie their living to TikTok which has been banned by the Indian government. For our third story, we keep in the influencer space where Ramon Olorunwa has been extradited from the United Arab Emirates to the United States. You see, his lavish influencer lifestyle was allegedly funded by cybercrime. To close things out, we look at how Evil Corp is now targeting American companies with remote workers.
