Last week on Malwarebytes Labs, we looked at a banking trojan full of nasty tricks, explained some tips and pointers for using VirusTotal, and dug into how an authentication vulnerability was patched by Pega Infinity. We also explored how a Royal Mail phish deploys evasion tricks to avoid analysis, and gave a rundown of how Have I been Pwned works. The human cost of the HSE ransomware attack was explored, new Android patches hit the streets, and Apple confirmed that Macs get malware.
