Talos Takes : Episode 78

Talos Takes Ep. #78: Attackers know you are still looking for a PS5 this holiday season

We know, we know. We do one of these every year. But people still falling for scams, so we still have to keep reminding people how to shop safely online! This year is a bit different than past Black Fridays and Cyber Mondays because of the issues around the supply chain. Attackers are sure to try to convince you that the big gift you want this year won’t arrive on time so you have to “ACT NOW!” Plus, there’s the continued frenzy to find PlayStation 5s and XBOX Series X/S’s. Jon and Nick talk about scams you’re likely to see while shopping online over the long weekend and provide some helpful tips that anyone can use.
