Description

Last week, Malwarebytes Labs revealed multiple giveaway online scam campaigns banking on the popularity (and generosity) of Ellen DeGeneres, weighed in on the hack that compromised legacy Microsoft email service accounts like Hotmail and MSN, explained what “like-farming” means and how to spot it on social media, and spotlighted on uncharacteristic executable file formats one of our researchers presented at the SAS conference.

We also exposed persistent phishing campaigns targeting Electrum wallet users to defraud them of Bitcoins and how malware can pose a physical threat to those inside industrial plants and to the residents nearby them.
