Network Security: Advanced Persistent Threat and Dell Coupons

This is a guest post by Margot. Unless you live completely off the grid, network security is an issue relevant to us all. From identity theft and computer viruses to major hacks into national security, we are all in need of the most up to date and constantly advancing security measures to protect our lives and businesses. Sure I use a deadbolt on my front door, but a physical home invasion is the least of my worries in comparison to the serious and permanent damage that can be inflicted online. For small businesses, Dell SecureWorks is one way to go, and you could maybe check out deals using Dell coupons to save some money on their new appliances.

Viruses that evade anti-malware exist, making giants like Apple and McAfee, and even Norway’s National Security Agency vulnerable to hackers in 2011 alone. All kinds of stuff can be sabotaged with online security breaches. In central Illinois this year someone remotely turned a water pump on and off, causing the pump to burn out. Sony’s PlayStation network was hacked this year too; 77 million member’s credit cards were compromised. Hackers stole Citigroup credit card numbers resulting in 2.7 million in fraudulent losses. Remember the DroidDream malware episode? Google had to remove around 50 Android apps for being dangerous to users and their security. And lets be honest, I don’t go a month without getting a notification from my bank that there are new phishing email or fraudulent scams on the prowl.

The more advanced security gets, the smarter hackers get. There is a never-ending battle for the most valuable and prized of commodities: information. It is hard to hate all hackers though, Anonymous and YGN Ethical Hacker Group are heading movements to expose in ways that help rather than hurt. YGN found holes in the Apple and McAfee security measures and alerted them rather than exploiting them in order to protect consumers. When McAfee didn’t take measures to fix the weak spots that YGN pinpointed, YGN went public with the information. Embarrassing yes, but better than an evil virus infecting everyone’s computers. The only solution is staying vigilant. The second anyone thinks they are invincible is right when they
are most vulnerable.

PC Mysteries: Answers to these tech questions

The PC world has grown into gigantic proportions. Computers have evolved at a lightning pace and have developed into super-fast and highly-intelligent machines. And yet, the average user is confounded and confused by so many things that keep happening on a daily basis with his/her PC. That is totally understandable given the fact that everyone making use of the PC is not a techie or a geek. However, the answers to these so-called techie mysteries are quite simple and straight-forward. Here is a brief compilation of the most sought-after mysteries and questions with their solutions.

1. Why does a PC making grinding sounds?

Ans: There are many reasons for this and all of them augur bad news! The simplest reason could be the fan in the CPU is spinning off the kilter. The most common reason is that your hard drive is about to die. It would be good to back-up your drives immediately when you hear these sounds.

Two of The Best Parodied Mac Commercials of All Time

They say you’ll be able to measure your fame when people start imitating you or making a fool out of you.

Let’s take Justin Bieber for example. Bieber, a Canadian teen star made famous by Usher and YouTube, has been mocked and targeted by Internet critics and bloggers all over the world. He’s been victimized everywhere, from YouTube (where millions of parody videos of his music videos are uploaded and viewed every day), to television (with shows like South Park and Saturday Night Live among others), to online blogs and forum sites (where you can find thousands of posters and photos about him). Everyone has something bad to say about Justin Bieber and I’d rather be selling laptops online than counting off all the “Bieber is gay” posters on Google images. But despite all the mockery, Bieber even takes the time to thank everyone for making him more famous by saying: “So I wake up today to almost 15 million on Facebook, over a billion views on YouTube and 6 million of the greatest fans on…
