Transatlantic Cable podcast, episode 149

On this podcast, Dave and Jeff look at why Israel is using fish to fight hackers, why Google will pay for you to read news and how Facebook helped the FBI hack Tails OS.

Kaspersky podcast: Fighting hackers with fish and hacking Tails with Facebook

For the 149th installment of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast, Jeff and I look at how (and why) the Israeli government has saw fit to use fish to help fend off cyber-security attacks. We also tackle the thorny issue of TikTok privacy and how they were caught with their hand in the cookie jar, again.

From there we move to more interesting news as it seems in the near future, Google will pay for you to read pay-walled news. Also on the podcast this week is a more serious look at why and how Facebook hacked into Tails, a privacy and security-focused operating system, which to no surprise — a lot of people aren’t happy about.
