Norton Alarms an Instagram Scam, Involving US $1000 Free Giveaway

NortonThe well known digital data protection company Norton, is alarming users not to follow those Instagram Accounts that promise to give away US $1000 all for free on a condition that you simply have to start following them and comment on their post. This Instagram scam is pretty new and was very active the past week. Instagram scammers were actually using images of offering fake lottery winnings to followers on their accounts. Surprisingly they were quite much successful in fooling people out and have convinced people (their followers) to share their posts, give up personal information, and even send money back to the scammers. These accounts had 5000 to 100,000 followers.

In this Instagram lottery scam, scammers actually followed a simple technique, they at first made number of Instagram accounts, which they then used to impersonate as real-life lottery winners from UK and US. In these accounts they simply posted a photo that claims that they won a lottery and are willing to giveaway US $1000 from the winning amount to every single Instagram user who will follow them and then leave comment with an email address or share their post.

Once the scammers built up a certain number of followers in Instagram then, they reveal another Instagram account that belongs to their accountant and who is in charge of delivering the US $1000 amount to the users, but with a catch. The catch is, in order to deliver the said US $1000 amount, these accountants account ask Instagram users to send US $0.99 in order to cover the postage fees for sending the checks. Even though the amount seems less with a single user, but when combined it does becomes a pretty hefty sum. Besides this the other main goal of this scam is to build up thousands of followers for personal use or for resale. An account having thousands of followers is worth a good sum.

So what should a user do is stay away from such kind of posts and accounts, and use a strong internet protection software, like the Norton Internet Security from Symantec. This tool is a pretty reliable solution that protects you from all online threats and notifies you of all suspected links, posts, activities etc. Usually, these tools does work fine but if you face any problem with using it or installing it. Simply calling at Norton customer support number and telling your issues to expert can solve your problems.

There are many support companies, but only a few are good. Techcillin is one of the best companies that provide effective and quick support for Norton issues.

As these kinds of lottery scams can prove to be very dangerous for you, so always try to stay away from them. Never get tempted and use strong and reliable security solutions.

How efficient tablets can be when used as secondary computers at work?

As time will move on, tablets will be used in enterprises in an increasing count. Enterprises meanwhile struggling with how to make these work, should continue keeping desktops as primary computers and tablets as the secondary devices.

Some companies however have already started using tablets as the primary computing devices for users. These are not so popular, as laptops and desktops still continue to rule the office. So, all those companies who are planning to go mobile are now struggling to find how tablets can be brought in, which can help in increasing productivity of workers but at a reduced cost.

People, who are responsible for corporate PC deployments, consider tablets as already being the primary computers in companies. The step is being speculated to help tablets takeover the aging laptops and desktops. History however shows that having one computer per employee is a good and usual approach, which must be taken.

Bringing tablets to work will help in improving the existing infrastructure of computer. This is specifically apt for those companies who implement a BYOD program. This will help in easing the tablet without causing any stress on the existing environment.

Tablets are popular as consumption devices and this has worked pretty well for most firms. When considering the utilization on a tablet we think of video, music and other like things, but this even implies to databases and documents.

Tablets seem an ideal choice for employees to have a look at the last quarterly figures as an example and also to discuss thoughts about the same. Also, the onscreen keyboard helps in making small changes in work documents and doing some light editing work easily.

Field representatives, in the meantime, can have computers at office for doing desk work and can use tablets when on the road. Sales representatives also consider tablets great in accessing price databases at office, while being in front of a customers’ desk. This denotes a perfect example for the tablet as a secondary computer.

Tablets by nature describe very personal computers and it’s not unlikely for those new in this line to take to them. These employees thus end up being more productive while working on the tablet than being without the same. This will help a tablet in playing a greater role in enterprises down the line.

Concluding the same, it’s easier for employees to buy into using the tablet; if it turns out to be not the only computer at work. Firms can begin by offering employees a computer in the office and a tablet while on the go. This approach will help employers see that how quickly employees adopt the tablet culture at work.

A new OpenSSL vulnerability released as Heartbleed

heartbleedA new OpenSSL vulnerability has lately surfaced and many firms were annoyed with this finding, as the bug was found even before the patches were released for the same.

New security loops are a common occurrence which keeps happening always. Latest on this front is the Heartbleed bug in the OpenSSL cryptographic library, which experts believe is a really appalling one.

Heartbleed meanwhile affects only the 1.0.1 and the 1.0.2 beta releases of the Open SSL, but something that must be noted is that 1.01 is already deployed globally. As Transport Layer Security and Secure Socket Layer are at the core of Internet security, thus this security glitch cannot be just ignored.

This security glitch can be used in revealing not only the contents of a secured message like a financial transaction over HTTPs, but also the primary and secondary SSL keys too. This hacked data can then be used like skeleton keys to bypass secured servers without even making them aware that a website’s security has been bypassed.

This bug is not linked with the inherent design of the OpenSSL, but is an implementation issue, which means it’s an outcome of a programming error. The fix for the 1.01 program has been made available, but work is in progress for the 1.02 beta version.

The result is expected to be bad enough, but something that’s really bothering security companies and operating systems is that OpenSSL and others have not delivered the patched versions which could have possibly limited the blackhat hacking problems.  In the meantime, CloudFlare, a Web security company, touts to have fixed the bug making use of the method described by OpenSSL. But, for all others the methods were not leaked for broad deployment.

Some leading companies are now working at a very fast pace to release the patched versions of OpenSSL for their clients. It’s the need to deploy the patched version for both OpenSSL 1.01 and 1.02 as soon as possible, to ensure the outcome doesn’t turn outrageous.

IT departments will have freedom to create an exception list.

Unlike the previously released versions of IE, Microsoft will bring an update for Windows 7 version at the same time when launching the update of Windows 8.1.

Not leaving developers behind, Microsoft has initiated many changes to become more transparent about its web standard support offerings. Status modem ie, will offer developers an inside into what standards IE supports, which are under consideration and which Microsoft is actively working on. Currently it’s just in its beta version that allows for a two-way communication with the Internet Explorer team, but the dialog is what Microsoft is seeking for and will be updated on the site later.

Email accounts at Yahoo hacked again in less than two months

Email accounts at Yahoo hacked again in less than two months Its Yahoo again, and this time it’s about the stealing of usernames and passwords of some Yahoo users with an intention to embezzle their personal information.

Yahoo Inc, meanwhile, has agreed that email accounts of some of its users were hijacked by a malware, which is software-based. The attackers tried to access accounts by using information shared on third-party websites, is what the company stated on their blog.

As per stats, Yahoo stands just behind Gmail, as the second-largest email service provider on earth. Globally there are 273 million email accounts at Yahoo, with 81 million from United States alone. The exact count about how many users suffered from this malicious software has not been revealed, but the main aim of hackers was to look for information in the most recently sent emails by users.

In their official blog, Yahoo said, “The information sought in the attack seems to be names and email addresses from the affected accounts’ most recent sent emails.”

Meanwhile, the senior vice present at Yahoo said that security attacks are turning into a common place, which is a misfortune for all. The company has deeply regretted with all that the users went through, after this hacking incidence and says that the security of data of users is a prime concern for them. The company in order to prevent such episodes in future is now working with Federal law enforcement in the U.S. to study the attacks more profoundly.

The passwords on the hacked accounts have been changed and additional safety measures have also been implemented.

The cyber attack surfaced just after Yahoo encrypted all its data and email servers. The company made announcement of a default HTTPS encryption for Yahoo mail users to prevent the incidences of cyber attacks from email accounts of users. The changes however seem trivial, as just few days after the encryption the email server at Yahoo got jacked with the information of users getting stolen. This is the second hacking episode the company saw in a span of just two months. Yahoo email service suffered a multiday outage in December, last year too.

Refrigerators and TVs: the new target of hackers being turned to spambots

Refrigerators and TVs: the new target of hackers being turned to spambotsTechnology is rapidly advancing and one of the biggest exemplifications of this is the smart refrigerator, which has now been turned into a machine that sends spam.

The complete evidence for the same has still not been revealed, but it’s been found that there is at least one botnet that can transform devices that are considered harmless; like the media players, televisions, routers and smart refrigerators, into zombies.

You may wonder, what can be the harm that these appliances can cause, and it’s all overhyped?  Then think again, as there is not just 1-2, but an army of more than 100,000 of these who are working in collaboration, which depicts that the answer to your questions is “something you cannot overlook”. The work is not happening at a very fast pace though. As per Proofpoint, which is an Enterprise Security outfit, 750,000 spam emails have already been figured out.

It’s being speculated that it’s the first of the botnet that’s been associated with something other than a computing device. What has been discovered is a hybrid. These internet “things”, in fact have been teamed with around 300,000 computers that have already been infected.

The emails were sent in groups of around 100,000 emails at a time, which were sent during late December and early January. This clearly shows only a few volleys have been sent out so far, so what would be the effect if the controller for this botnet is not ramped.

Running an antimalware program will not give people freedom from the infection; in fact a firmware update would be required. In reality, meanwhile, most users are not really concerned that whether their device is fully updated or not.

Its high-time now and manufacturers must seriously do something about the devices which they are shipping that boast dolefully substandard security and can put any buyer’s security at great risk.

Manufacturers are being demanded to do something about this without any further delays and especially before the same kills us and all our hopes, which rest with only something too big and equipped.
