Transatlantic Cable Podcast

Dave and I open up the latest episode of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable Podcast, looking at recent research from the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF). Dave and I open up looking at an interesting unsecured server.

The research from the EFF goes under the hood in regards to privacy and the Ring. In this case, the privacy violation is data sharing with third parties.

While on the topic of privacy, we then hop across the pond and look at GDPR. I know, everyone’s favorite topic. In this article, we get a look at the financial impact of the regulation as compared to regulations in the US. The third story jumps into the world of corporate espionage. This fitness related story has some underlying data management issues that should put companies in an uneasy state when looking in the mirror.

Our fourth story showcases the return of the notorious OurMine group. Instead of hacking into the celebrity or C-suite accounts that they have become synonymous with, the group has gained access to 15 of the National Football League (NFL) teams’ accounts. To close out the podcast, we revisit the Windows 7 end of service. While they said they were done with fixes, it seems that we – and they – spoke a bit too soon.
