Android and OneDrive, and iOS-targeting phish

Tomáš Foltýn for ESET: OneDrive app for Android updated with fingerprint authentication –
“With this update, Microsoft is bringing a feature for Android users that has been available on iOS devices for quite a while now” Actually quotes an old blog post of mine: Smartphone Authentication: the Passing of the Passcode? Good to know someone occasionally reads my blogs. 😉

Sean Gallagher for ArsTechnica: Click on this iOS phishing scam and you’ll be connected to “Apple Care” – “This phishing attack also comes with a twist—it pops up a system dialog box to start a phone call. The intricacy of the phish and the formatting of the webpage could convince some users that their phone has been “locked for illegal activity” by Apple, luring users into soon clicking to complete the call.” Commentary from Sophos: Porn-warning security scam hooks you up to “Apple Care”
