On this week’s episode of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast, Dave and I jump across a wide array of stories and also end on a lighter note than usual.
For our first story, we jump across the world to Japan and into the world of automobiles. Now, we aren’t talking smart cars or car hacking, but rather, classic infosec. It appears that Honda is currently under attack from Snake ransomware. After this, we hop over to the UK where we look at the state of IoT appliances and also what the term “lifetime updates” really means.
We leave the kitchen and head into the claims that Google violated US wiretap laws with their “incognito Browsing.” Our fourth story takes us back to Asia, and the country of Singapore. This one also drives us back to Covid-19 and the country’s thoughts on rolling out a wearable tracker for the citizens of the country. To close things out, we go into the word of copyright and what could go wrongs in regard to Space Force between Netflix and the US Government.
