For the 92nd edition of the Kaspersky Lab Transatlantic Cable podcast, Dave and I hit on some new topics. Apologies in advance for those of you who are all in on the Facebook flogging.
To kick things off, we start with perhaps the creepiest story we have had in a while. Over in China a “Superhost” on Airbnb was caught taping renters while in the bedroom. Where the camera was hidden will really surprise you. From there, we head to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts where a couple who was purchasing their dream home had the surprise of their life – the money didn’t go to the seller, instead it went to a scammer. The third story stays in the world of crime where the NYPD is asking Bitcoin ATM companies for help in cracking down in a new round of phone scams. To close things out, we look at another curious tale of an app changing business model from hosting photos to harvesting photos for facial recognition.
