Transatlantic Cable Podcast

For the 63rd instalment of the Transatlantic Cable podcast, Dave and Jeff jump around a bit on topics, but mainly stick to our reoccurring theme of scams and privacy.

The first story on tap looks at the latest cryptocurrency scam run by hackers via Target’s verified account. Unlike past scammers pretending to be Elon Musk or Bill Gates, the hackers ran an ad to lure people into their Bitcoin scam. From there we jump to a data breach impacting those who purchased recreational marijuana in Canada.

The third story looks at UK-based companies embedding bio chips into their employees. We close out the podcast looking at the latest research by Kaspersky Lab on phishing and spam.

This week, Dave and I were in the same city. So, instead of taking a long romantic stroll around the city of Roma, we decided to sit down and record a different version of the Transatlantic Cable podcast (presented by Kaspersky Lab) and talk about a single topic – parenting and privacy in the age of the digital native.

Both Dave and I are parents to young children and often discuss views on how we look at bringing up our kids within this day and age that really does not have a playbook. 

Also - apologies for the poor audio in places - in the middle of recording, a thunderstorm broke out!

In a busy news week for infosec news, Dave and Jeff had a hard time selecting the stories to cover for this week’s edition of the Transatlantic Cable podcast. However after some deliberation, they were able to narrow it down to four stories that hit on some of our favorite topics: IoT, Smart Home and epidemics.

To kick off the podcast, they look at a new patent filed by Amazon that may look to have everyone’s favorite in-home voice assistant play doctor. From there they look at a recent breach suffered by the Pentagon and then jump back on the medical bandwagon and look at the fallout of the WannaCry epidemic on the NHS. They wrap the week staying on the British side of the pond where a smart lock company locked customers out of their homes.

As mentioned in last week’s podcast, we have a special podcast for this week since the Kaspersky Lab annual corporate communications meeting. This year, we were in Dresden, Germany, so Dave and I sat down with the members of the Kaspersky Arabic Podcast, Ahmed and Baseem to discuss privacy.

During the talk, the four of us looked at the different ways that we look at privacy as well as how social networks and bad parenting may lead to bullying later in life for our kids. The takes come from different areas of the world where we have grown up as well as how we feel personally about the topic.

As we pick up the stories for the weekly podcast, Dave and Jeff often bounce a story out there asking if anyone really cares. So needless to say, there are stories that inevitably wind up on the cutting room floor. This week, there really weren’t many of those moments as they looked at topics that could relate to everyone. To kick things off, they look at how a McDonald’s drive thru was hacked in the 90’s – who hasn’t dreamed of messing with people over one of those speakers? The second story combines new research on how insecure USB drives are and also, how people buying used SD cards can get more than they expected. From there, they hop over to a recent breach within the social media app Timehop that has impacted around 21 million users. To wrap up the 45th edition, they take a look at Twitter’s crackdown of fake accounts.
