Support scams now reign in Spain
If you asked most people what they believe to be the most prevalent form of threat right now, they’d almost certain say ‘ransomware’. However, my colleague Josep Albors has come to a surprising conclusion in his Spanish language blog Fake technical support is the most detected threat in Spain during January. While the data on which he drew indicates that Spain leads the field in detections of HTML/FakeAlert, several other countries (including the UK and France) are seeing detections in surprisingly large quantities.
The following is a very free translation of Josep’s article with some commentary from me. Any errors in translation are down to me.
