Last week, we took a look at the theories behind preventing users from clicking everything (don't worry, you're allowed to click that), a deep dive into Locky Bart Ransomware, and a long term drive-by download campaign. We also explored why you should care about data breaches and also released our 2016 State of Malware Report.
Elsewhere from the last week:
- DRM files could be used to unmask TOR users.
- WordPress "secretly" fixed an issue alongside others, in the hope that automatic updates would put paid to any residual risk to WordPress users.
- Hacker Warkit Metasploit can now work on hardware such as cars.
- Hack attacks are "destabilizing democracy" and nobody has the faintest idea what to do about it.
- Banking keyloggers mostly originating from the US and Singapore make waves.
- Pokemon GO is still a big deal, and so is lookalike Malware. Heed the warning signs.
- Two arrested over claims that Ransomware was found on hacked CCTV cameras.
- More Ransomware, as Ohio county Government finds itself shut down after an outbreak.
- A one-two punch of CEO fraud and W-2 phishing.
