A Week in Security (Apr 05 - 11)

A Week in Security (Jan 11 – 17)

Phishing and game-related threats dominated last week’s posts on Malwarebytes Unpacked.

Security Researcher Christopher Boyd shared to blog readers videos about cheat bots, how they work in gaming, and how one can fight them. He also highlighted on fraudulent payment attempts found by Boomerang Rentals, a popular game rental site. And then Security Researcher Jovi Umawing discussed a scam that was prevalent on Steam until the end of 2014, which baits users to join an ESEA League and how one can circumvent payments for its premium registration.

Both Boyd and Umawing touched on two latest, in-the-wild phishing campaigns that may affect a lot of internet users. Clients of Microsoft Outlook and Adobe (respectively) were asked to remain vigilant.
