Pete Recommends – Weekly highlights on cyber security issues, April 13, 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. Four highlights from this week: Hijacked Facebook Pages are pushing fake AI services to steal your data; China-backed operatives used fake social profiles to gauge US political division, Microsoft says; LastPass: Hackers targeted employee in failed deepfake CEO call; Insurers Are Spying on Your Home From the Sky; and Hospital websites share visitors’ data with Google, Meta.
