Fake Windows 10 updates infect you with Magniber ransomware

If you get your updates from any place other than this,

you probably deserve the infection.

New phishing warns: Your verified Twitter account may be at risk
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/new-phishing-warns-your-verified-twitter-account-may-be-at-risk/
Since Twitter is in the news, expect the hackers to jump on the opportunity.
Never give a sucker an even break has been their motto forever. :)
