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.
