It’s here — episode 200 of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable has landed. This week, Dave and Jeff chat about a new ransomware taskforce whose purpose is to stem the surge of ransomware attacks. From there, they look at issues surrounding Google’s ad network and scams — and why Google just can’t seem to get control over them. Following that, they briefly touch on doxing and how everybody can protect themselves from attack.
To wrap up, it’s a uniquely Canadian story: Beavers managed to chew through fiber optic cables for a small village in Western Canada.
