2 comments on “Monday review: the hot 21 stories of last week”
I love that Apple has its own section given that most Apple malware relies on social engineering. I also love that one of the Apple stories is a standard scam which just mentions Apple products. I got a Guinness-related Scam the other day.
It's hard to tell whether Sophos hates Apple more than it hates scammers or those who have little IT "road sense".
This recap of the week's headlines from Naked Seccurity is a great idea, thanks!
