Dave and I kick off the 158th edition of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast by looking at some malware that is now on — gasp — Macs.
In a new post, Patrick Wardle talks about how Shlayer malware was actually approved by Apple. So much for Macs not getting viruses. From there, we move to a story that was practically made for a TV or Netflix movie. The tale looks at espionage and how the FBI and Tesla halted a cyberattack.
Our third story heads to the gaming sector and the illicit marketplace for Fortnite accounts. After that, we discuss a vulnerability in Slack. To close out the podcast, we look at an advisory from the FBI about older daters being targeted in a scam.
