Security dominated the headlines last week after several threats and vulnerabilities came to light, the most notable of which concerned the Dyre malware strand.
V3 readers were clearly concerned by the report, issued by Symantec, which said it had detected rapid growth in the use of Dyre following takedown operations against previously popular tools like Gameover Zeus.
Elsewhere, another report, this time by Pulse Secure, found that, perhaps unsurprisingly, Android remains by far the most popular target for scammers, accounting for 97 percent of mobile attack types.
Better news for users of Google products this week came from the widespread implementation of the Undo Send feature in Gmail, giving users the chance to set a window of recall on emails of five, 10, 20 or 30 seconds.
Lastly, there was heartening news for the UK mobile industry. A major report by Akamai said that the UK has the fastest average mobile web connections in the world, at 20Mbps. This is twice the second place country of Denmark.
