A week in security (July 17 – July 23)

By Malwarebytes Labs

Over the last week, we have covered Play Protect, android’s new security system and how the Dutch police ran Hansa Market after the take down of Alpha Bay, both major players on the Dark Web. We also provided some tips on how to stay cyber safe this summer. We also saw how the Terror exploit kit started dabbling in ad fraud, more specifically URL shortener fraud. And last but not least, we saw the adware series come to an end with a tools section.
