Kaspersky podcast: Using Lego to teach your kids about cybersecurity

To start the 152nd episode of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast, Dave and I talk about a new threat to fast charging devices. The BadPower attack sees firmware of fast charging devices altered in a manner that literally fries the devices using it.

From there, we head into legal affairs, with the hacking of the Ripoff Report as well as the legal issues that the hacker faces in the States.

The third story of the pod jumps into the future of the World Wide Web: China is proposing some major changes for the Internet.

We then sit down with Maria Namestnikova of our Global Research and Analysis Team (GReAT) to discuss parenting in COVID-19 times and how families can stay engaged when we have to do so much remotely. Sticking with the family theme, we close out this week’s episode with tips from Lego for staying safe online.
