Kaspersky podcast: Why is Facebook so bad at stopping disinformation on COVID-19?

For the 139th edition of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast, Dave and I continue in our usual format, talking about current events and adding in some practical tips from one of our experts.

Our first story jumps back to a very popular topic of late, Zoom. This story looks at serious flaws reported by Dropbox and also dives into the company’s vendor bug bounty program.

From there, we hop over to a look behind the curtain at Google. The company notes that it is blocking 18 million coronavirus-related scam e-mails a day. Next up is Facebook, which has not been as good as Google at cutting down on coronavirus disinformation.

After that, we talk with David Emm of Kaspersky’s Global Research and Analysis Team about some tips and tricks for remote working safely. We then close out the podcast with a look at the recent Webkinz data breach.
