Support scams and malware

It’s a bit of a stretch from tech support scams to ransomware, but I’ve added a ransomware information page to the AVIEN site to accompany the tech support resource page already there. (Announcement here.)

And, almost immediately, a story came up about a site that was serving a support scam, a data-stealing Trojan, and ransomware – Cryptowall, no less. So maybe it wasn’t such a bad call after all.
