Support scams: old dog, new teeth

Further to the tech support scam issues with OS X and iOS that I flagged here, here and here, I recently included some information on those and many other recent support scam trends in an article for ESET on Support scams, malware and mindgames without frontiers. The article concerns the expansion of tech support scamming across platforms and into languages other than English, as well as scam activity associated with real malware.

Unfortunately, there’s life in this rabid old dog yet. I’m referring to the scamming, not me. This is an attack whose scope, evolution and impact is still underestimated.
