Another busy week in the tech world saw security dominate the headlines, with Trend Micro's report about a variant of the Bifrose malware using the Tor network to hide its communications of key concern.
The fact it was uncovered while hitting an unnamed device manufacturer will have made many firms sit up and take notice. Similarly, a report that the Syrian Malware Team were spewing out a new remote-access Trojan will have caused concern too.
Elsewhere, in more physical hardware worries, HP had to issue a recall for six million chargers, which posed a potential fire risk. In other hardware-related news, Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 device arrived in the UK, starting at a hefty £640.
Finally, Google unveiled its own drone-focused Project Wing, which sees the search giant joining the likes of Facebook and Amazon in working with this new form of technology, although the firm admitted it is very much in the earliest stages.
