Dave and I kick off this week’s edition of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast, we discuss disinformation in the US in the wake of current events.
With the focus on the news in the States, we highlight the need for those educating themselves to make sure that they are reading solid information from reputable sources. There is a lot of misinformation being produced and shared, so we kindly ask you to think before sharing. If something sounds a bit off, make sure that you are looking at reputable sources – don’t be a source of disinformation.
We stay on this topic with an alleged hacking of the Minneapolis Police Department. Despite the public reports, it seems that there is more than meets the eye according to Troy Hunt. From there, we head across the pond to discuss the NHS and some Corona-tracing. Unfortunately, while the thought is in the right place, it seems like the security is not where it needs to be. Following that story, we dive deeper into a computer and boy is it hot. This story looks at the victim side of crypto-mining and the side effects that can happen for a lapse in security. We close out the podcast with a look at a hacked Power Glove to make music.
