Fraudology is presented by https://seon.io/ (SEON). Last week, the online publication ARS Technica published an article covering recent fraud claims from debit cardholders and small online merchants. Based on their research, it became fairly clear that a large number of debit cards issued by at least one major bank had been compromised. And based on the merchant accounts, those cards were being actively tested to create a list of valid card numbers. Given some of the details in the article, it became clear to fraud experts (Karisse included) that this was a scripted attack. Karisse will talk about this specific instance, what can be learned, and what can/should be done by all applicable parties in the CNP eco-system. This story is just one public example of a trend growing rapidly & anecdotally in conversations Karisse has with Top enterprise online companies. Scripted attacks (aka- bots) are growing in size and capabilities faster than ever before. Karisse will share one of the major reasons why she thinks that is (besides the increased processing power of computer systems), and also lists the type of bots that anti-fraud and Trust & Safety teams should be aware of, and what signs of bots to watch out for. Even if your business hasn't been a target of these bots in the past, that doesn't mean your company will be safe in the future. Link to the article referenced above: https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2022/08/wave-of-debit-card-fraud-hits-ally-bank-customers-hacked-vendors/ Fraudology is hosted by Karisse Hendrick, a fraud fighter with decades of experience advising hundreds of the biggest ecommerce companies in the world on fraud, chargebacks, and other forms of abuse impacting a company's bottom line.

The "rolling code" technology used to remotely open and lock your car is supposed to prevent hacking. Unfortunately, Honda has a pretty serious vulnerability in their cars that apparently allows anyone with a little talent and cheap hacking tools to get into your car - and maybe even start it (though not actually drive it away). If correct, this vulnerability affects probably all Hondas made over the last 10 years. So far, Honda has denied that this is a problem, but many researchers have reproduced the hack. In other news: cheap, Chinese-made GPS vehicle trackers are vulnerable to remote hacking; Chrome, Edge and Safari browsers fix serious 0-day bugs; Twitter data breach info on 5.4M users is up for sale on the dark web; Windows getting a crucial security update to make important security feature on by default; the Conti ransomware gang is attacking the entire country of Costa Rica; Facebook quickly bypasses Firefox's URL tracking removal feature; Tor Browser adds a useful feature that will help people in repressive countries; Google appears ready to stop blocking political spam emails; Amazon admits to giving Ring video to law enforcement without consent or a warrant; a complicated, targeted web browser trick can be used to identify website visitors.

This episode contains: Best friend of the show Matt was mauled by a dog, so Ben took him to the ER. A WILD STORY. "They don't give ice cream in the ER?" asks Devon. Shout out to team "Dad Bod" on season 2 of Floor Is Lava. Get new shirts guys. There are no words: People are getting explosive gastroenteritis at the Grand Canyon. Amazing story full of poop jokes about the Grand Canyon by Beth Mole for Ars Technica. Thanks for the chuckles and the coverage of norovirus, Beth! Turns out if you vomit at the Grand Canyon, you gotta take it out with you. Steven isn't impressed by erosion, but Ben loved seeing the Grand Canyon.   https://arstechnica.com/science/2022/06/the-grand-canyon-is-brimming-with-norovirus-sickening-over-150/    This week in space: Surprise solar storm with 'disruptive potential' slams into Earth. A G1-class solar storm hit earth at 1.57 M miles per hour on 6/25, disrupting satellites and creating strong auroras as south as Oregon. Possibly unrelated: there was a giant sunspot in June, 2.5 times the size of earth. How do EMPs make electronics turn off? We'll look it up later. https://www.livescience.com/surprise-solar-storm-hits-earth Science Fiction: Need a Lola 3D printed from Kenobi? Renee found it for us on Thingiverse. We suggest a few kid-friendly podcasts instead of our show. For All Mankind episode three was exactly what Ben wanted from the show. Devon wonders why For All Mankind had a ship spinning while engaging engines. Literally unwatchable. SEND ALL THE POETS TO MARS! YES! In case you missed it: watch the alternate-history news reports between seasons 2 and 3. Steven and Devon speculate who'll be POTUS in later seasons. We talk about three episodes of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds this week. Steven continues to exploit his greater knowledge of Futurama over Ben. Devon remembers more of early Star Trek: The Next Generation than Ben. Devon kinda likes Stranger Things season 4, after the overhyped season 1. West World season 4 has low ratings, probably because of lack of advertising. Out of context, West World season 4 sounds bonkers, but Ben is in for it. Ms. Marvel is a great show: culturally, stylistically, and cinematographically. Steven talks about what to expect from the upcoming film The Marvels. Maybe next week Devon will talk about The Orville... or maybe not. On Patreon-only: Ben sings the Skype song mashed up with A-Team theme. Book recommendations for roadtrips, Devon's noises, blinking and all about Memphis.
