Pete Recommends – Weekly highlights on cyber security issues, December 17, 2022

Privacy and cybersecurity 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 online security, often without our situational awareness. Four highlights from this week: Tricking antivirus solutions into deleting the wrong files on Windows; DOJ Seizes Dozens of Websites as Part of Cyberattack-for-Hire; TikTok pushes harmful content promoting eating disorders and self-harm into young users’ feeds; and FCC May Mandate Security Updates for Phones.
