A week in security (May 7 – May 13)

Last week on Labs, we looked at the case of a fake Android AV, an annoying adware that goes by the name of Kuik, the return of threat actors behind the Shopper Stop tech scam, a new Netflix phishing scam, the recent zero-day vulnerability in Internet Explorer, and the insufficiency of merely relying on the presence of the green padlock. Also, in a brief blog post, we talked about why we removed the blacklist of tech support scammers we have been dutifully maintaining for years.

Other news

Stay safe, everyone!
