The good part is that removing unwanted toolbars in Firefox is much simpler than getting rid of them from Internet Explorer, so it should all be very easy.
We’re all familiar with the curse of the seemingly endless spinning wheel or non-stop hourglass. And it’s always seems to happen on those days when you need it functioning on at it’s fastest!
If you’ve got a toolbar that is driving you nuts and you can’t for the life of you figure out how to get rid of it, this article is for you. Many of the toolbars you might have come across, offer no real service except to deliver advertisements, and in some cases, can be malicious.
The specific symptoms and the impact to your computer system all depends on exactly what type of virus your computer is infected with; in fact in some cases your computer may not show any signs at all! In that case, how on earth are you supposed to be able to keep track of your computer’s health?
That’s almost 5 times more than the second-leading malware-hosting nation: the United Kingdom, who only came in at 10%. That’s quite a lead for the U.S.
So which brands are hosting malware, unintentionally? Amazon is reportedly responsible for 16%, while Go Daddy comes in at a close second with 14%. This data is especially interesting, when you think about how many articles cite Eastern Europe as the culprit. Don’t be fooled – the US is now producing more volumes of malware code than anyone else in the world.
With over 10 popular web browsers out there, how are you supposed to know which will protect you and offer you with the services you need? Well, the good news is you don’t. There’s a lot to consider when looking for a good browser, and BullGuard is here to help you find the right one.
By looking at the browsers and checking for basic features like pop-up blocking, html5 support and private browsing, as well as features like flash, acid test scores and IPv6 support, it was easy to cull a few. And after delving into security and privacy features, only a few were left. But when it was all said and done, our vote is Firefox, without a doubt.
The company called Wickr, (for those of you that aren’t familiar with it, it’s a secure messaging app), has reached out to hackers and offered them a reward for doing what they do on a daily basis.
That’s right, hackers are being offered $100,000 to uncover and, here’s the important part, ‘responsibly disclose’ any and all critical security flaws in the company’s app.
If you haven’t heard of Bluetooth-enabled skimming devices before, you definitely need to read this article. These devices are being used to steal card information. A recent scam resulted in cyber criminals making off with more than $2 million.
Skimming devices are typically installed inside gas pumps or fixed to ATM’s so that they aren’t detectable by the victims using the machines. By installing Bluetooth-enabled skimming devices, the cyber criminals are making their lives easier – the devices never have to be physically removed, because all of the data can be accessed remotely.
