It’s time for our weekly roundup of all things Infosec!
On the blog, we covered Safer Internet Day and then followed up with a very unsafe Internet, in the form of DMA Locker Ransomware. We took a look at a reasonably rare example of Airbnb phishing, and also explained how you can do your best to steer clear of PUPs. We finished things off with a deep-dive into a Skype Malvertising campaign.
