Transatlantic Cable Podcast

We kick off the podcast looking at how the Girl Scouts are rolling out a badge for Cyber Security and using eggs, not computers for their members. From there, we cover a report from California on how a family’s Nest camera sent out a warning that had North Korea firing intercontinental ballistic missiles at the USA – but was a hoax from a hacker and reused passwords.

We keep in the Google family by looking at a recent GDPR related fine levied on the search giant. The next story looks at the recently unsealed documents that were previously sealed in a Facebook lawsuit. Unfortunately, it looks like the social behemoth was profiting off of children.

Afterwards, we further discuss the fact that scams on Facebook and WhatsApp promising free airline tickets are just a scam – please do not fall for them. The podcast closes out with a new piece of mobile malware that tries to hide itself from security researchers.
