Pete Recommends – Weekly highlights on cyber security issues, August 31, 2019

Privacy and security issues impact every aspect of our lives – home, work, travel, education, 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 security, often without our situational awareness. Four highlights from this week: Hijacked Reviews on Amazon Can Trick Shoppers; Google finds evidence of attempted mass iPhone hack; US waged cyberattack on database used by Iran to target tankers; and Career Services urges students to use caution to avoid fraudulent job postings.
