Quotes

...On July 11, the United States Department of Justice provided an update saying that the "technical and legal measures undertaken to disrupt Gameover Zeus and Cryptolocker have proven successful."
...and engine with which we're achieving these results are the basis of all our endpoint protection products," Corrons said in a prepared statement . "Our aim is to continue integrating technologies in the platform to stay in pole position when it comes to detection and provide our users with maximum protection and minimum impact on their systems."
Kaspersky Lab has uncovered a new version of the notorious malware, known as "Onion", and it uses the Tor dark-web browser in order to "to hide its malicious nature, and to make it hard to track those behind this ongoing malware campaign"
Catalin Cosoi, Chief Security Strategist at Bitdefender, commented: "Why do people still want to see who has been taking a peek at their profile, despite all security warnings? I think they believe these are legitimate apps. This is social engineering at its finest – a challenging mental game that pushes the right psychological buttons. The baits have changed over time, with stalkers, peekers, admirers, overly attached girlfriends and exes haunting you, but the reason this scam works is simple: human nature."
