What we do

Stickley on Security was founded in 2007 with a plan to provide organizations with meaningful education and awareness solutions that employees and customers would actually embrace. As our founder Jim Stickley points out, it is simple to offer a training course but far more difficult to actually educate the participants. Our goal is to ensure that your customers and employees not only learn about cybersecurity risks, but that they can apply what they learn into their everyday lives and jobs.

Malware-Filled, Fake Google Updates Pushed On Hacked Websites

With billions of daily users, Google Chrome is the leading internet browser not only in the US, it also has more than 63% of the market share worldwide. That’s one reason cybercrooks are targeting Google Chrome and its users with fake updates to the Chrome browser. It also brings to light that these days, telling the difference between what’s real and what’s not is getting increasingly difficult. Using fake Google Chrome updates is a way to get malware to the masses, with over 5 billion mobile installations of Chrome in 2019 alone.

Is Sideloading Worth The Risk Of Downloading Malware?

It’s been well-known that sideloading apps is a risky proposition. Just ask the 20 million Aptoide users who recently learned their personally identifiable information (PII) was posted online by a hacker. Aptoide, a popular third-party app “discovery platform” had its database hacked earlier this month. The cybercriminal behind the hack claims that in addition to the 20 million exposed data files, there’s an additional 19 million files in their possession. Whether that’s true or not remains a mystery for now, but the Aptoide incident shows (in a huge way) why app sideloading is risky at best and is not recommended by security professionals.

Organizations are particularly vulnerable to phishing because of continuing efforts by cybercriminals to get access to their employees and systems.
