To kick off the 253rd edition of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast, Ahmed, Jag and I discuss our most recent whipping-boy topic – NFTs.

In particular, we discuss how Seth Green’s new project may already be in jeopardy because he clicked on a phishing link. This, in turn, saw the actor lose a number of the NFTs in his digital wallet to thieves that were then resold. From there, we discuss security issues related to app-enabled automobiles. There is some debate as to whether or not these apps are even needed.

We then sit down with a member of our product team to discuss the latest in cloud security. The third story on the docket discusses the latest with hackers claiming that they have stolen a database of Verizon employee numbers.

To close out the pod, we talk about the weird new ransomware group in India that is requiring people to conduct acts of kindness or goodwill to get their data unlocked. These actions range from paying for medicine to buying kids food – yeah, as you can see, kinda a weird flex.
