Malware-Possessed Printers, Apple Embraces Security, and Automated Bank Heists
Compared to the last few months, this week seems relatively quiet as far as security stories are concerned. We saw some security incidents this week, but nothing that would catch your hair on fire.
Today’s weekly summary highlights an older trojan that is causing new problems for network printers, an organized bank malware campaign targeting high rollers, and even some good news about computer attacker arrests and prosecutions. For the full scoop, hit the play button below.
As always, I’ve included a reference section at the end of this post, if you’d prefer reading these stories. Thanks for watching.
UPDATE: A late breaking Mac virus made the week a bit more interesting late Friday. Check out the story in the Reference links below.
