On this week’s edition of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast, Dave and I stay Stateside for the majority of our stories.
The first story has us looking at YouTube for the second week in a row. This week, we look at a tale from the BBC of major advertisers seeing their ads landing next to fake cancer cure videos.
Following that story, we take a look at the latest hoops that Equifax is making the victims of the breach jump through to gain their $125. After that, we look into an alleged ransomware attack that has hit terrestrial radio giant Entercom.
The third story focuses on a new proposal for consumer cyberinsurance — and what potential ills may come with it. The final story looks at a unique crime that takes place not in the cyberworld but instead in the loo.
