For the 150th episode of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast, Dave and I start with a look at how EU authorities were able to crack into an encrypted communications platform used by criminals. The joint operation by multiple law enforcement organizations saw more than 700 arrests tied to criminal activities.
From there, we head to India and talk about the geopolitical tension between that country and China. In this instance, the collateral damage is influencers, more specifically those who tie their living to TikTok, which has been banned by the Indian government.
For our third story, we stay in the influencer space, where Ramon Olorunwa Abbas aka “Ray Hushpuppi” has been extradited from the United Arab Emirates to the United States, because his lavish influencer lifestyle was allegedly funded by cybercrime.
To close things out, we look at how Evil Corp is now targeting American companies with remote workers.
