Welcome to the 108th edition of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast. This week Dave and I jump between sides of the pond to discuss security issues relating to consumers and businesses alike. Our first story lands us in the world of browsers. Instead of focusing on the bad — tracking and the like — we take a look at some good things about the latest edition of Firefox.
From there, we jump back to the physical world. Our stories take us to Germany and an interesting case of banking customers having their chip-and-PIN cards cloned, leading to €1.5 million in charges. The third story takes us across the Atlantic, where hundreds of dental offices have been hit with ransomware. To close things out, we head to Jolly Old England, where the TfL is asking customers to write their passwords on a sheet of paper to give to an agent.
