In this episode Tom and Scott cover the recent rise in Fortnite scams, new privacy controls in Google search and the controversy over the Bloomberg article and SuperMicro. Below are show notes and links mentioned in the podcast:
- Fortnite scams are increasing due to the massive popularity of the game. Many teens and adults play this game so be on the lookout for scams over email, websites, and even YouTube videos.
- Google is putting more privacy controls directly in “Google Search”. This is a great idea but your privacy and all the many different Google services will continue to be a challenge. We also discuss the benefits of using search engines that have your privacy in mind like DuckDuckGo and StartPage.
- The Bloomberg story that came out several weeks ago about SuperMicro continues to cause controversy in the cybersecurity community. Scott give his take on the situation!
