Tap Snake

Tapsnake Infection: not very likely

My first blog for Infosecurity Magazine for quite a while addresses reports of users of Android phones (but also iPhones and even Macs) seeing pop-ups telling them they’ve been exposed to an obsolete example of Android spyware and should therefore install a particular security program. Clearly, there’s something very hokey about this, uncomfortably¬†reminiscent of the fake AV epidemic of not so many years ago.
