In this roundup we take a look at Easter scams, Kaspersky’s new virtualization security solution and how the Galaxy S5’s fingerprint sensor has been hacked.

Bitdefender is warning Brits about a large amount of religious scams that are inviting Brits to discover God’s plan for their life in one moment and tempted with Viagra offers the next.

“Participating in dubious surveys for Easter goodies or rewards may also relieve victims of their personal details and savings right before the holidays,” added Bitdefender.

Meanwhile, Kaspersky Lab has unveiled its latest virtualisation security solution, Kaspersky Security of Virtulization | Light Agent.

The product delivers advanced protection to not only the VMware platform, which accounts for 47 per cent of the market, but now also the Citrix (18 per cent) and Microsoft (24 per cent) platforms.

In other security news, the Samsung Galaxy S5’s fingerprint scanner has been hacked less than a week after the smartphone’s release.

Security Research Labs managed to spoof the sensor by lifting a real fingerprint form the screen and creating a mould out of glue and graphite spray.
