We looked at another Tech Support Scam using scare tactics to lure victims into calling their phone number. The method is the Winlogon Shell registry value.

Why is a singer's website posting about cheap flower deals on their news section? And what happened to their Tumblr, for that matter...

Emol was serving a malicious advert that automatically exposed visitors to the site to the Angler exploit kit. The infection came from ad platform adXion, whose client list includes emol.com, Yahoo Chile and others.

One tall tale is Macs are impervious to malware, so you needn't worry about cybersecurity solutions. Antivirus and anti-malware protection is for the PCs. We're here to bust that myth.

Besides not downloading programs from untrusted sources, how does a Mac user prevent themselves from getting adware? AdBlock in Google Chrome/Firefox? I understand that even a knowledgeable Mac user can fall victim to adware, but would it be possible to prevent it instead of being reactive to adware?

I'm running Linux and I have not had any security problems at all. Well, unless I get something similar to this which I already know it's fake:

Really, tech support scammers could take advantage of gullible Mac users (no offense to those who are not experienced enough to stay safe online). They will have to steal Apple's website's look and feel to convince Mac users that their Mac computer is infected and needs to call a 1-855 number that's on the screen.

Last October, our own Jerome Segura uncovered a tech support scam trading on Malwarebytes' good name. So half a year later, what happened to the perpetrators?

Keep monitoring these crooks +Malwarebytes! :) Perhaps an FBI agent could go undercover and work for the tech support scamming company and report back to the FBI Cybercrime Division. ;)

Really, tech support scammers deserved to be pwned and spied. For good. :)
