We are slowly chipping away towards the second century mark for the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast. During our conversation, Dave and I go everywhere from the courtroom to the streets to the home.
To kick off the 194th edition, we move to the intersect of military and automotive. In this story from Joseph Cox, we look at a contractor looking to sell the location data of billions of cars to the US military. This one has a lot of question marks and what ifs when it comes to what could go wrong. From there, we head to the courtroom where Zoom calls are making compelling theater for the world of reddit. The question here though is what really should we be watching.
For our third story, we head to an emerging story of people renting out unused bandwidth for profit to anyone in the world. Is this a VPN? Is it a DDoS for hire? They say it will NOT be used for illicit activities, but I for one am not convinced. We close out the podcast by looking at the case of a hacked NHS employee account that turned into a PS5 scam.
