On this week’s episode of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast, Dave and I talk about a wide array of stories and also end on a lighter note than usual.
For our first story, we look to Japan and the world of automobiles. Now, we aren’t talking smart cars or car hacking, but rather, classic infosec. It appears Honda is currently under attack by Snake ransomware.
Hopping over to the UK, we look at the state of IoT appliances and also what the term “lifetime updates” really means.
Leaving the kitchen, we move over to the claims that Google violated US wiretap laws with its “incognito” browsing. Our fourth story takes us back to Asia, and Singapore. This one also drives us back to COVID-19 territory — and the country’s ideas about rolling out a wearable tracker for the citizens of the country.
To close things out, we talk about copyrights, and what could go wrong with Space Force between Netflix and the US government.
