A week in security (January 29 – February 04)

Last week on Labs, we looked into PUPs stealing and using mainstream logos of security and tech companies to further gain user trust, GandCrab and Scarab ransomware variants in the wild, and a new Mac malware called OSX.CreativeUpdater that can be distributed via MacUpdate. We also profiled robocalling and ransomware, particularly how ransomware was named the “It” malware of early- to mid-2017, and then began to fizzle like a dying firecracker at end of the year onwards.

Other news

Stay safe, everyone!
