For the 56th edition of the Transatlantic Cable podcast, Jeff and Dave dive into a lot of new trends, some alarming, some good that have popped up over the week.
For the bad news, the guys take a look at how sexual predators are hopping on Fortnite to stalk victims, how fake support scams are swindling Brits out of money and how developers can still read your Gmail along with a secret synch. On the bright side, FireFox has teamed up with HaveIBeenPwned to tell users if they have had their data exposed in a data breach.

In the 55th installment of the Kaspersky Lab Transatlantic Cable Podcast, Dave and Jeff cover a lot of ground. Starting in China where Amazon is looking into claims that bad reviews are being removed by employees in exchange for cash. They also look into a new development on Steam where a sexually explicit game has caught headlines and then it's over to the US where a government payment system suffers a breach that has lasted over six years. On top of those stories, they also cover a pair of animals making tech news on land and in the sea.

On this episode of the Transatlantic Cable Podcast from Kaspersky Lab, Dave and Jeff Boldly Go where this podcast has never gone before – into the brain of William Shatner. Well while I will always prefer smugglers, swords with lights coming out of them and Muppets in my space odysseys, you can’t help but read a story when Captain Kirk jumps on board expressing his fears of virtual reality.
Following that trippy story, we jump into stories looking at data sharing between Google and Mastercard, Colorado upping their data privacy laws and a hacked Chrome extension.
