Twitter breach aftermath, Garmin hacked and 4 years of NoMoreRansom

To start episode 153 of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast, Dave and Jeff look back on four years of the No More Ransom initiative, of which Kaspersky is one of the four founding members. In its first four years, the project has helped millions of people get their files back without paying ransomware fees.

From there, they look at how the recent Garmin ransomware incident has affected flying thanks to flyGarmin being knocked offline during the attack.

They also look at how the US government is trying (once again) to add backdoors that will allow law enforcement agencies to sneak into encrypted messages and traffic.

To wrap up, they look at recent news around the Twitter breach showing that about 1,000 people had access to “high-profile” accounts.
