The extremely popular video-sharing website Dailymotion (dailymotion.com) has been found serving malicious ads that trigger fake infection warnings and try to make visitors install a fake AV solution.
When it comes to the infamous Reveton ransomware, cyber crooks are forever coming up with additional ways to bilk money from users: pairing it up with banking Trojans, playing threatening voice messages, adding password stealing to its arsenal.
Android vulnerabilities, increased online banking threats and availability of sophisticated, inexpensive malware toolkits are among the growing concerns cited in Trend Micro's Q2 2013 Security Roundup Report.
In an effort to keep one step ahead of security solutions and attentive users, peddlers of fake AV solutions often change the name of the malware they are trying to sell.
Fake AV software and ransomware are old news for computer users, but are now poised to become a problem for smartphone users as well.
