7 Identified Threats On Internet From CDW

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of CDW. All opinions are 100% mine.

 

With the fast and easy access of internet, more and more people and business rely on its use, but along with this fast and easy access also comes with a big risk, which may involve security and privacy being breach. To a person this could be an upsetting experience, but for a company this could mean disaster!  So this means an extra careful when it comes to sharing something over the internet. Now there are some advises you can look up on the government websites on how to protect yourself from the common personal threats like the identity thief scams, but for a company or a business I reckon that data loss prevention is the key to stay safe and secure online as this would detect possible threats to security and privacy.

Now what are these online threats? Based on what I found out on CDW, the leading provider of technology products and services for business, government and education, there are 7 Identified Threats and these are:

1.    Malware – is software that can damage computers and computer systems. This can be a form of computer viruses, worms, trojan horses, spyware, or an adware that can track down passwords or data’s on your computer.

2.    Attacks on Web Browsers/ Hostile E-Mail Attachments- Attacks on web browsers are commonly pop-ups which will then take you to another link that contains trackers. Hostile E-Mail attachments are sometimes an attached web link or a document, both contains tracker or a virus that can harm your computer. 

3.    SQL Injection Attack – These are common technique that would attack a database through a website and get information’s like credit cards or passwords and automatically sent to the 3rd party.

4.    Configuration Management / PC Lockdown – Usually cause by employees through sharing data’s through an unsecured computer.

5.    Passwords – weak passwords or a password that has been noted and left on for everyone to see.

6.    Wireless Security – This is common in laptops, mobile phones, tablets and other mobile devices. This is handy but risky as it is found out that wireless networks are relatively easy to break into.

7.    Loss of Mobile Devices – common problem on lost modern mobile phones, especially Smartphone’s as it holds loads of company information, like names, phone numbers, addresses, meetings, diary, and even passwords. This means an easy access to the company’s data for anyone holding it!

Seeing too many spam links on blogs

If you have noticed a lot of spam links appearing on your blog, web-links that you did not post, then it could be due to the plug-ins of Google chrome. Please note that this plug-ins is only seen by you on your computer, usually when you are using the Google chrome browser. So if you look at your blog from a different computer using a different browser, then you would not see these links! Also you may try using your mobile phone and check your blog from there; you will also notice that these links are not there.

Anyway if you are annoyed of this plug-ins reappearing on your blog, here is what you can do:

You can also completely disable specific plug-ins. Unlike blocked plug-ins, you won’t be able to allow the plug-in to run on a given page. When you visit a page with a disabled plug-in, you’ll see the message “Missing plug-in” appear in its place.
To disable plug-ins, visit the Plug-ins page at chrome://plugins/. Find the plug-in that you’d like to disable and click Disable. You can also re-enable disabled plug-ins on this page.

You can also reach the Plug-ins page by clicking Disable individual plug-ins in the "Plug-ins" section of the Content Settings dialogue.

Good luck!

Asus 1015PX EEE PC Bristles Problem on Screen

I bought my daughter an Asus 1015PX EEE PC last Christmas, the netbook was doing fine when it comes to performance over the past 4 months, but there is just an annoying 2 bristles inside the netbook screen. As far as I can remember, the bristles were not there when it was bought, not really noticed it until lately when I wipe it with a cotton cloth. At first, there was one small bristle and having though it was from outside I wipe it harder trying to take it off the screen, then another one fell down!
Photos:

The netbook is sealed and still has a manufacturer’s warranty, so I first went to Comet shop, where I got it and they refuse to accept it as they say there would be charges if they are to send it to ASUS for a repair! They did advise me to call ASUS costumer service, which believe me, is not the most helpful and friendly costumer service I have spoken to! I told him about the bristles in the netbook and the costumer service man told me that I have to book to have it pick up for a check up, then they will decide if it is manufacturers fault and have it repair for free. But if their technician findings that it is not, then I have to pay for it! The charges would then cover for parts (if anything is damage inside), labor and logistic. Logistics by the way would cost around £57.57 for UK and Ireland, and you cannot book your own courier! Having read some forums about ASUS customer service and repair and how awful their experiences are, I am not going to have it fix by them, even if it still got a warranty! Would never again buy any ASUS product!

Grand Vitara SUV: A good Family car

After having some space issues with our family car, my partner and I have sold our old car at We Buy Any Car and got a second hand 3 door Grand Vitara and we just love it! The SUV is just over a year old, from 1 owner and still under warranty. It has got the all the latest feature of the recent model like the alloy wheels, color coded bumpers, color coded mirrors, front fog lamps, rear wash wipe, roof rails, privacy glass, ABS central locking - remote, climate control, full airbags, electric mirrors, electric windows, power assisted steering, radio CD, and so on.

The SUV can accommodate up to 4 persons without any problem, and since there is only 3 of us, space-wise it is perfect! I find the loading size great as both back seat can be folded if needed to put more stuff to load. It feels solid and reliable on the road but not that expensive to fuel. Another good thing about this SUV is the interior as it does look classy with simply laid out design and comfortable seats too! Overall, a good family car!
