Last week on Malwarebytes Labs, we looked at which age range is most likely to be targeted by online predators, talked to Malwarebytes CISO John Donovan on our Lock and Code podcast, and explored the latest deepfake happenings. We also dug into a supply chain attack, discussed threats from a ransomware group, and did a deep dive on wallet recovery code scams. There were also fines for cities, and a 101 guide to Smishing. We had Signal insisting it’s very private indeed, an explainer for ip addresses, vulnerabilities in IoT land, and a plan for success from the Ransomware Task Force.
