A week in security (July 23 July 29)


Last week on Labs, we looked at an adware called MobiDash getting stealthy, a new strain of Mac malware called Proton that was found after two years, and the ‘Hidden Bee’ miner that wasdelivered via an improved drive-by download toolkit. We also delved into the security improvements expected in the new Android P , and had a fresh look at Trojans to help users define what they really are.

We also gave you a quick introduction to the Malwarebytes Browser Extensions for Chrome and Firefox.
