Transatlantic Cable podcast, episode 114

On this podcast, Dave and Jeff take a look at the latest on Libra, disclosing to guests if you have a smart speaker, jackpotting ATMs, and more.

After a two-week hiatus, Dave returns for the 114th installment of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast.

We open the episode looking at the latest news on the Facebook front. Unlike most of our podcasts, the focus won’t be on privacy snafus. Instead, we will look at the latest news with Facebook’s Libra. Following up on that, we head across California to Google. In this week’s story, the focus is on the privacy surrounding smart speakers and whether owners should disclose their presence to guests in the house.

The third story has us jumping to a more global scale, where ATM jackpotting is once again in the spotlight. This time, it is Cutlet Maker. For the fourth story, we discuss the latest scam tied to jailbreaking iPhones. To wrap up the podcast, we discuss discount phone protectors and how you may get what you pay for.
