Really the best defense against these types of attacks is YOU. You have to decide if you are going to click on either a link that takes you to a document either through e-mail or a web site. Trust no one is my best advice.
Now turning to Facebook. This past week there have been a couple of apps that folks fall for. Both attacks are types of social engineering that try to get you to enter your login credentials. Folks, if you are already logged on to Facebook or whatever other site you are on and you click something that prompts you to login, DON'T DO IT!! Something is wrong with that scenario.
OK, hope you all are having a fabulous weekend and snow sucks. Stay safe and Rock Chalk Jayhawk!!

Brian Krebs from SecurityFix blog has a write up that you can read more details. Brian does a fabulous job keeping folks informed of computer security issues. Click here to read his post about the Adobe vulnerability. Adobe has a write up on their site too and you can click here to read that post.
As always you should never click on attachments or links in unsolicited e-mails. Stay safe and have a fabulous weekend.

I wrote about the Heartland Payment Systems breach that was announced on January 20, 2009. Financial institutions all across North America have been contacting their customers in the past few weeks informing them that their credit card or debit card has been compromised due to this large breach. I personally know many folks affected where I live in the great Mid-west. They’ve got their letters telling them a new card is on its way.
I believe this breach will surpass the breach that TJMaxx had. Their final total was around 94 million cards that were compromised. This one, I believe, will surpass the 100 million total. There is a site that has been reporting what banks have contacted them stating that they have been affected by this breach. It is far from complete. Click here to see an update from the site bankinfosecurity.com.
Hope you have all had a great week. Friday is just around the corner. Have a fabulous weekend. And of course, Rock Chalk Jayhawk…Let’s kick the Wildcats behind Saturday!!

It combines a system cleaner that cleans your PC of unused temporary files from your PC. On top of that, it also has a great registry cleaner too. The reason you want to run this is that it allows you to keep your Windows system running faster and it also frees up hard drive space. It also has a nice section that helps you clean up all those tasks that happen when your system starts up. Seems like every application that you install with the default setup will always start up at boot time. You don't need to do this and this can slow your PC when your system tray is full of all these started applications.
Hope you all had a great weekend and of course ROCK CHALK JAYHAWK!!
