For episode 101 of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast, Dave and stay primarily in the UK for a number of security related stories before ending with a complete story completely out of the security space.
Our first story looks at a new service in the UK where users can report Facebook scams after a man wins a lawsuit for using his image in fake ads. From there, we stay on the topic of Facebook and their whopping five billion dollar fine levied from the FTC. The third story of the week takes a look at how people are now discovering that Google is listening to the recordings from Google Home. Following that story, we discuss how smart meters in the UK are switching to Welsh. We close out the podcast with a non-security story, but was too weird to not bring up.
