Pete Recommends – Weekly highlights on cyber security issues, March 9, 2024

Privacy and cybersecurity issues impact every aspect of our lives – home, work, travel, education, finance, health and medical records – to name but a few. On a weekly basis Pete Weiss highlights articles and information that focus on the increasingly complex and wide ranging ways technology is used to compromise and diminish our privacy and online security, often without our situational awareness. Five highlights from this week: News farm impersonates 60+ major outlets: BBC, CNN, CNBC, Guardian; FTC Cracks Down on Mass Data Collectors: A Closer Look at Avast, X-Mode, InMarket; Video Doorbells Sold By Big Retailers Have Major Security Flaws; Co-working spaces might actually be a security nightmare; and Whistleblower Accuses Aledade, Largest US Independent Primary Care Network, of Medicare Fraud.
