Last week on Malwarebytes Labs, we took an in-depth look at card skimmers targeting ASP sites, we released another episode of Lock and Code exploring the Internet of Things, and we dug into a Mac mystery. We also examined some pre-installed malware, and put out a threat spotlight on some customized ransomware.
