Last week, our security researchers covered a number of 419 scams, with one taking lead from an old racket back in 2012; another, a fake “give away” purportedly sponsored by the UN; and lastly, a brief notice about a money transfer to the recipient’s account (Never true, of course).

Researchers also flagged a number of exploits they found on legitimate sites that have been taken advantaged of to host malicious advertisements. One of our seniors even posted a case study on malvertising.

We also introduced an interactive documentary series called “Do Not Track”, which was created to introduce users to the world of data tracking.
