A Week in Security (Apr 05 - 11)

A Week in Security (Jul 12 – Jul 18)

We looked at numerous scams and security happenings last week, along with a few slices of technical analysis.

First up, an old email classic – the fake “You have won” message, complete with multiple Microsoft themed attachments asking for personal information. We explored the World of the Bunitu Trojan and its ties to Neutrino Exploit Kit, along with an in-depth summary of how it operates under the hood. Steam scams offering up free games are still in fashion, and we continue our Digital Snake Oil series – this time, examining the curious world of PUPs. A bizarre “Lucky Wheel” took curious clickers to all manner of random destinations, we launched Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac, compromised email accounts asked for $2,800 in emergency medical fees and we took a trip down memory lane with a look back at the ILOVEYOU virus.

There were also plenty of things happening elsewhere, too. Here’s some of the notable security stories from the last seven days:
