New blog for Infosecurity Magazine

My first blog article for the Infosecurity Magazine site for a couple of years. I don’t plan to restrict any future articles there to Apple-related topics, but as it happens, this is one refers to a scam that has been directed to Android, iPhone and OS X users.

Tapsnake Infection: Not Very Likely

Tap Snake was an Android app classified by security companies as spyware because it transmitted the location of the device it was running on to a remote server. The app is no longer available from Google Play, and it wasn’t available for iGadgets, let alone OS X, but there have been reports that users of those systems have been told that they have been exposed to Tap Snake so as to persuade them to install a particular security application.
