Top FBI, CIA, and NSA officials all agree: Don’t use Huawei Phones

Feb 21, 2018 | Blog

When the heads of all three U.S. intelligence agencies reach the same conclusion: “Don’t Buy Huawei phones”, we should probably listen. CBS News is reporting that FBI Director Chrostopher Wray, CIA Director Mike Pompeo, and NSA Director Dan Coats, each gave testimony on Capitol Hill this week to address the cyber security threats facing the nation and all admitted that they would never willingly use a Huawei handset. The intelligence community has been warning about the risk of Huawei for years, but the timing of the message here is clear: buy the new Huawei, Mate 10 Pro at your own risk.

Google Chrome says “Goodbye Ads”

Feb 13, 2018 | Blog

Earlier this year Google announced that it will be integrating an ad blocker into Chrome in order to allow users better experience and cut down spammy or intrusive advertisements. That being said, we now have an official date for this update which will be on February 15th, 2018. However, Google Chrome won’t be removing all ads, just ones that are considered aggressive, such as full page ads, ads with auto-playing sound and video as well as flashing ads. This way Google will try to clean up the web with Chrome, as Chrome is already a Browser leader by the number of users. Websites that contain these unwanted ads will be notified by Google and of a potential blocking through its Ad Experience Report tool. Sites that ignore or fail to meet those standards for 30 days will have all their ads blocked by Google, even the ones “owned or served by Google”, after which they will be able to submit for manual review to have ads re-enabled once the bad ones are removed.

Microsoft claims that Google Chrome is worse than Microsoft Edge

Feb 09, 2018 | Blog

A recent report backs up the company's claims about its browser offering better protection from phishing attacks. Microsoft is clamming that Microsoft’s Internet browser Edge is safer to use and better for battery life than Google Chrome. Chrome is far more popular than Edge, and Microsoft has long struggled to close the gap between these two browsers. Chrome had a 55.08 per cent share of the global market over the past 12 months, compared to less than three per cent for Edge, which was less popular than Safari, UC Browser, Firefox, Opera, and even Internet Explorer. Microsoft, however, argues that Edge outperforms Chrome in several key areas. It has released an ad that reveals the results of a battery test – conducted by Microsoft – in which 720p video was streamed on a loop on three identical laptops, using Edge, Chrome and Firefox.

What is Cryptocurrency?

Feb 07, 2018 | Blog

Cryptocurrencies have become a global phenomenon known to most people. While still somehow geeky and not understood by most people, banks, governments and many companies are aware of its importance. A cryptocurrency is a virtual currency (it only exists on computers) designed to work as a medium of exchange. It uses cryptography to secure and verify transactions as well as to control the creation of new units of a particular cryptocurrency. Essentially, cryptocurrencies are limited entries in a database that no one can change unless specific conditions are fulfilled. Satoshi Nakamoto, the unknown inventor of Bitcoin, the first and still most important cryptocurrency, never intended to invent a currency. His goal was to invent something; many people failed to create before digital cash, which was to found a way of how to build a decentralized digital cash system. But how does a cryptocurrency works?

Should we capitalize the word Internet?

Jan 23, 2018 | Blog

The question of whether the word internet should be capitalized is so often debated that it has its own Wikipedia article. In 2016, Associated Press Stylebook, an English grammar style and usage guide created by American journalists, announced that internet and web (World Wide Web) should be lowercased. Along with them, many other publications prefer the lowercase form as well, while in Oxford Dictionaries internet still has the capital I. There are reasonable arguments on both sides. Capitalising Internet is still ongoing because lots of people do it and in general people are already used to it. There are internets (networks of networks) but only one Internet. While on the other hand, supporters who are against it consider that capital letters are unnecessary punctuation which should be eliminated where possible. The non-U.S. approach makes more sense. There is no good reason to capitalize internet.

Most of the browsers today offer users ability to install extensions, a web based applications that can enhance the user’s overall experience, but they can also pose a threat with the ability to inject and execute a malicious code.

Security researchers from US cyber-security firm ICEBRG have spotted four Chrome extensions featuring malicious code that were available through the official Chrome Web Store.

Most parents are letting their children watch something on YouTube just to keep them amused. That being said, we might as well be calling YouTube the babysitter of this generation, which it most certainly shouldn't be.

Twitter will expand tweets to 280 characters!

Nov 17, 2017 | Blog

Twitter has announced that it’s planning to increase the number of characters in tweets from 140 to 280 for the majority of users. However, the new limit will not apply to tweets written in Japanese, Chinese and Korean, because they can carry more information in a single character than other languages. Asian languages fit more thoughts into fewer characters, as the average length of a tweet in Japanese is 15 characters. The company’s decision came after a 280 character trial run that began in September. The main reason for this was that the people, spent a lot of time editing and even sometimes abandoning Tweets before sending. With the expanded character count this problem was massively reduced, and it allowed users to send their Tweets faster than before. This will also attract new users and increase growth.

Internet Explorer Bugs Leaks Your Browsing Secrets

Oct 03, 2017 | Blog

The latest version of Internet Explorer carries a bug that reveals to the malicious websites what the user is typing in the address bar, search terms or any other text typed into the URL area. This Internet Explorer’s flaw is allowing the website which user is currently visiting to view the text typed in the address bar. As soon as the user hits Enter key, the website will stop and redirect to a simple page explaining that it has “read your mind” and displays your browser’s next destination. This means that the bug can expose sensitive information, not only Web address but also search queries and other user’s browsing habits, since Internet Explorer can bring up search results from Bing or other search services when a user types keywords in the address bar.

The Influence of Women in Technology

Dec 22, 2015 | Blog

The influence of women in technology is something that is needed in regards to the information security. Currently, IT security is highly regarded as a male-dominated career choice. This is not very far from the truth since, for instance, the InfoSec workforce comprises 89% men. However, this will not be the case for very long. Women are making their presence felt in this field at record rates. This can be attributed to a number of factors such as education. It is also common knowledge that women are naturally attributed as communicators . The women already involved in IT security are causing a paradigm shift in precedent. Their focus is largely towards the human element of the industry as opposed to the technology itself. At the workplace A recent survey conducted among professionals working in IT found a respondent classifying themselves in two groups, either as leaders (executives, consultants and management), or doers (entry- and mid-level positions).
