So, you’re trying to download a free screensaver or game or something else you really want.

Yahoo Mail Suffers Hack Attack

Security attacks are unfortunately becoming a more regular occurrence. Recently, we identified a coordinated effort to gain unauthorized access to Yahoo Mail accounts. Upon discovery, we took immediate action to protect our users, prompting them to reset passwords on impacted accounts. Based on our current findings, the list of usernames and passwords that were used to execute the attack was likely collected from a third-party database compromise. We have no evidence that they were obtained directly from Yahoo’s systems. Our ongoing investigation shows that malicious computer software used the list of usernames and passwords to access Yahoo...

Android.HeHe Malware Steal Text and Block Call

FireEye Labs has recently discovered six variants of a new Android threat that steals text messages and intercepts phone calls. We named this sample set “Android.HeHe” after the name of the activity that is used consistently across all samples. The app disguises itself as “android security”, attempting to provide the users what is advertised as an OS Update. It contacts the command-and-control (CnC) server to register itself then goes on to monitor incoming SMS messages. The CnC is expected to respond with a list of phone numbers that are of interest to the malware author. If one of these numbers sends an SMS or makes a call to an infected...

Eavesdropping Threat in Your Google Chrome Browser

“Even while not using your computer – conversations, meetings and phone calls next to your computer may be recorded and compromised,” wrote Mr Ater in a blogpost explaining what he had found. The bug emerges when malicious sites try to subvert the way Chrome handles speech recognition, he said. Typically, people must manually grant permission to each site that wants to access a computer’s microphone to listen in. Once permission has been granted Chrome lets people know a site is listening via a blinking red dot on the tab for that site. In a video accompanying the blogpost, Mr Ater showed how a malicious attacker...
