On this episode of the Transatlantic Cable Podcast from Kaspersky Lab, Dave and Jeff Boldly Go where this podcast has never gone before – into the brain of William Shatner. Well while I will always prefer smugglers, swords with lights coming out of them and Muppets in my space odysseys, you can’t help but read a story when Captain Kirk jumps on board expressing his fears of virtual reality.

Following that trippy story, we jump into stories looking at data sharing between Google and Mastercard, Colorado upping their data privacy laws and a hacked Chrome extension.

As we pick up the stories for the weekly podcast, Dave and Jeff often bounce a story out there asking if anyone really cares. So needless to say, there are stories that inevitably wind up on the cutting room floor. This week, there really weren’t many of those moments as they looked at topics that could relate to everyone. To kick things off, they look at how a McDonald’s drive thru was hacked in the 90’s – who hasn’t dreamed of messing with people over one of those speakers? The second story combines new research on how insecure USB drives are and also, how people buying used SD cards can get more than they expected. From there, they hop over to a recent breach within the social media app Timehop that has impacted around 21 million users. To wrap up the 45th edition, they take a look at Twitter’s crackdown of fake accounts.
