Transatlantic Cable podcast, episode 116

Dave and Jeff chat about the week’s top cybersecurity news, including whether you should put your license plates online, FTC crackdowns on stalkerware, Aussie cops making bank on Bitcoin, and more.

This week on the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast, Dave and I talk about a number of stories that tie back to the police theme.

To kick off episode 116, we take a look at a story within the automotive space. There, the author puts on his cybersleuthing hat to figure out that the license plates of cars used in photos would show up in Google search results.

The second story jumps more into the political arena, and conversation surrounding Facebook and a privately funded public police force. We stay on the topic of laws when we discuss the recent news of the FTC looking for consent with stalkerware apps. For our fourth story, we look at a windfall Aussie law enforcement received from a Bitcoin seizure a few years ago that paid out recently. To close out, we look at the latest on Samsung’s unlock issues.
