Transatlantic Cable Podcast

Welcome to the 105th instalment of the Kaspersky podcast, Dave and I take a look at some important stories that you may have missed this week.

To kick things off, we look at recent news on robocall-blocking apps. While they may look to curb the volume of these phantom calls, there is more than meets the eye. Some of these apps are actually sharing data with third-parties.

After that story, we head to the latest big business to be caught listening in on “private” recordings. This time it is Microsoft and contractors with Skype. From there, we look at the new security cameras that are using facial recognition in King’s Cross. For those of you looking to go to Hogwarts, you may want to use a spell or two to keep your privacy. After that, we look at a “whoops we’re sorry” from Twitter with personal data and advertisements. To close out the week, we look at intrusion by warshipping.
