A Week in Security (Oct 05 – 11)

Another week, another round-up of news and breaking stories!

On the Malwarebytes Unpacked blog, I looked at some phone numbers in circulation tied to so-called “Vishing” scams. This is where a scammer uses the telephone to phish user details from an unsuspecting victim, often with dire financial consequences.

Elsewhere, we had a Linkedin profile claiming to be a retired Army General deploying a 419 scam. Is this part of a new and possibly rather weird trend?

Finally, we dug into some of the scare messages you might see on your travels while using an Android device.
