During this week’s Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast, Dave and I venture everywhere from the courtroom to the streets to the home.
We kick off the episode at the intersection of military and automotive industry. In this story from Vice, a contractor was looking to sell the US military access to the billions of car locations. We have some questions.
From there, we head to the courtroom, where Reddit has found compelling theater in Zoom calls. Again: questions.
For our third story, we have an emerging story of people renting out unused bandwidth for profit to anyone in the world. Is this a VPN? Is it DDoS for hire? Some say it will not be used for illicit activities, but I’m not convinced.
We close out the podcast with the case of a hacked NHS employee account that turned into a PS5 scam.
