For the 68th edition of the Kaspersky Lab Transatlantic Cable Podcast, Dave and Jeff cover a wide range of topics ranging from data privacy and sharing to legal fallout with NotPetya (AKA ExPetr), a stolen unencrypted laptop and a phishing attack.
The first story looks at Facebook’s ongoing battle against ad blockers and then jumps into the data that apps on iOS and Android are storing and profiting on. Then they head to the APAC region, where a stolen Lenovo employee’s unenecrypted laptop proves to be a potential treasure trove with payroll and salary data on it. Finally, they hop to the legal world where an interesting lawsuit is brewing out of an insurance claim tied to NotPetya, before closing out with a hack on a Massachusetts-based community college.
