When you think you have seen it all, the Internet comes back and proves you wrong. That is also the case when it comes to this week’s episode of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast.
To start off the podcast, Ahmed, Dave and I discuss a new problem that Roblox is facing. Now, we aren’t talking bugs or trivial threats, but rather some adult conversations and content happening on the platform for kids. While the company notes that there are problems that they are going to address, it still begs to the question as to HOW and WHY this is happening. From there, we stay on the question of WHY as another platform has some seedy happenings. In this case, we discuss a sexual assault on the Metaverse.
From there, we revisit the topic of Apple’s Air Tags that we discussed two episodes back. It seems they are adding more safety measures in place for users to protect themselves from unauthorized tracking. Our final story of the episode looks into the hackers who are helping users who’ve forgotten their digital wallet passwords access their “missing” cryptocurrency.
