WatchGuard Security Week in Review: Episode 30

VM Malware, Mac Attack Toolkits, and iPhone SMS Spoofing

I’ve posted today’s weekly security news summary video a bit late, due to some work travel that got in the way of production, but better late than never right? If you’re interested in the biggest information security stories from the week, you’re at the right place.

This week’s episode covers a SMS spoofing vulnerability that primarily affects iPhones, a Mac attack toolkit criminals are selling on the cyber-underground, and some paradigm shifting malware that specifically targets and infects VMware virtual machines. For details on these stories and more, check out the video below.

Since I had to create this week’s episode quickly, I left out a few extra security stories from the week. If you want to learn about these missing additions, or just want more details about the stories in the video, check out the Reference section at the end of this post.

Have a good weekend, and stay frosty.
