A Week in Security (Dec 14 – 20)

Last week, Senior Security Researcher Jérôme Segura reviewed the top threats we encountered and witnessed in 2014, which include data breaches, 0-day exploits, malvertising, tech support scams, mobile malware, and targeted threats aimed at the gaming community. Segura also predicted possible threats we may likely see in 2015, one of which involving the Internet of Things (IoT).

Speaking of tech support scams, Windows users aren’t the only ones being targeted by them now. In a more recent post, Segura revealed that scammers targeting Mac OS users were on the uptick.
