episode 120: Transatlantic Cable Podcast - Episode 120


Where did the year go? One minute, we were talking about predictions for the coming  year and now… well, we have entered the most wonderful time of the year. You know, the time with fat guys and red suits and burning credit cards... To kick off the 120th installment, we head to the blog of AV Test, however, we will not be talking about the ratings of AV products. Instead, we take a look at their IoT research into the insecurity of a smart watch made for children. For our second topic, we head to New York, where the NYPD had suffered a minor incident with ransomware from a 3rd-party contractor. From there, we jump across the US to take a look at the latest in the case of the Jack Dorsey hackers. Spoiler alert includes an arrest. For the fourth topic, we look at Black Friday/Cyber Monday and how shoppers can stay safe from scams. Afterwards, David chats with Kaspersky researcher David Emm for some more tips for shoppers. To wrap up the show, we take a look at the bizarre purchase of an expensive printer and VR coming to Russian cows.
