Health app vulnerabilities, iMessage concerns, ransomware attacks, and more

For episode 189 of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast, Jeff and I talked about some stories you might have missed this week. We start with an article from Threatpost looking at recent research on the vulnerabilities of health apps to various forms of attack.

From there, it’s a story about iMessage, drug-deals, and the police. The story doesn’t end well for the bad guys.

We then move on to a concerning story about a former employee accused of lacing the company network with ransomware after being let go. That’s some grudge.

We end on a fun note with the recent “I’m not a cat” Zoom call blunder. Remember, on the Internet nobody knows you are (or aren’t) a cat.
