It is unbelievable that almost five years after Adobe announced it would stop developing Flash Player for Android, users are still installing a non-existent piece of software, which in almost all cases is just malware in disguise.
Unfortunately, this is exactly what seems to be happening, and on a regular basis, as malicious apps disguised as Adobe Flash continue to be one of the simplest and most efficient ways to distribute mobile malware, right there next to "dedicated video players for viewing adult movies."
In the past few years, we've seen this basic lure used to trick users into downloading hoards of banking trojans, adware, and RATs on the Android devices of unsuspecting users.

After Microsoft said on Tuesday that it was postponing its February Patch Tuesday indefinitely, the company issued a new statement today, announcing that February's patches will arrive on March 14, next month.

This announcement effectively rolls up February's security updates into next month's Patch Tuesday
The Redmond-based company has never explained why it postponed February's updates in the first place.
Microsoft only said it "discovered a last minute issue that could impact some customers," so it delayed February's Patch Tuesday because the issue "was not resolved in time for [their] planned updates."

After aggressively using JavaScript email attachments to distribute malware for the past year, attackers are now switching to less suspicious file types to trick users.

Last week, researchers from the Microsoft Malware Protection Center warned about a new wave of spam emails that carried malicious .LNK files inside ZIP archives. Those files had malicious PowerShell scripts attached to them.
