A week in security (February 19 – February 25)

Last week on Malwarebytes Labs, we gave readers a primer on encryption, took a stab at that Deepfakes tool Internet users seem to be interested in, and started a new series that talks about GDPR.

We also looked at a drive-by download campaign that starts in booby-trapped Chinese websites that drop malware via different exploits. This malware is a DDoS bot called Avzhan, which we then studied in detail.

Other news

Stay safe, everyone!
