We open up the 139th edition of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable Podcast looking at a favourite topic of discussion… Facebook. Instead of the typical security-related incident, we start with the company speaking on regulation from governments.
Yes friends, you read that correctly, Mark Zuckerberg is asking for governments to implement regulations as to what is and what is not kosher when it comes to fake news, disinformation or just bending the truth.
After Facebook, we head to the Dark Web, where it appears that Black Energy's code is being re-used by attackers. From there, we jump into a cyberattack on Boston’s Children’s Hospital that is disrupting the flow of patients. We take a break from our regularly scheduled program to speak with Anton Shipulin to discuss the upcoming Kaspersky Industrial Cybersecurity conference in Sochi.
When we return to schedule, we dive into a story that hits close to home with me. Boston Children’s Hospital is currently working through a cyberattack that has disrupted the hospital’s service to patients. Our fourth story focuses on Redcar and Cleveland Borough. The English municipality appears to be facing a ransomware attack. To close things out, we look at Netflix and a recurring topic of password stuffing and account takeovers.
