Top 7 Ways to Avoid Cyber Attacks

Viruses and identity theft are not new issues, but recently, individuals and companies are at a much greater risk as a result of the unanticipated increase in internet and technology use. Follow these tips to protect yourself from such an attack so that you won’t be the next victim.

Foe example, you receive an email promising a great joke if you open the attachment. You're not sure who sent it but you feel like a laugh and open it anyway. Big mistake.
Attackers can break into your computer by sending you an email attachment with malware (malicious software) or downloading malware on to your computer when you open a link on a webpage.
They want to use personal and financial details on your computer to steal money, buy things on your credit card or open up bank accounts in your name.

Anyone who uses the internet needs to be aware of basic computer security:

1. Don't click the link

If you don't know who sent the email, or if it's not a trusted website, then don't click the link.

Beware: there is always an increase in email phishing scams around Christmas, whereby scammers have a fake retail store website and capture your credit card details when you buy online.

2. Install Antivirus software

Always have up-to-date antivirus protection and get regular updates, Don't press 'do it later' and update six weeks later.

3. Use strong passwords

Most of the population is still using '1234567' or their first name and last name,

The problem is that there are about 20 different things that require passwords. The strategy now is to write them down it is a complete U-turn and put them in your wallet [which is usually in a safe place]. If you lose your wallet, you stop your credit cards and can also reset all your online passwords.

* Never click 'remember my password'.

* Use capitals, lower case, numbers and symbols in passwords. Don't use words in the dictionary.

* Change passwords regularly.

* Password software is good at generating strong passwords but the human brain is the best tool of all.

4. Keep software up to date

This will ensure your software has the latest security upgrades. Attackers are always thinking up new ways to penetrate security. Don't ignore update notifications.

5. Reconfigure wireless routers

Buy a router with secure wireless encryption, otherwise your information is unprotected and can be stolen: for example, when banking or shopping online.

When you get a new modem from a network provider, it may not be secured to encrypt traffic. People should go to the administration panel and configure their wireless network to WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) or WPA2 encryption.

Reconfiguring routers is easy and something people don't do properly.

Change the name of the router to something obscure, otherwise it gives attackers information on how best to attack that router. Also, change the default login to a unique password.

6. Encrypt email

Learn to use email encryption for sensitive documents.

Don't send emails such as a child's health resume using Gmail or Hotmail. "There was [the recent case] where a Gmail employee started going through people's email accounts."

7. Use a secure web browser

Firefox or Opera are secure web browsers

"Internet Explorer is highly targeted by attackers because it is on so many machines. IE generally takes longer to patch or fix vulnerabilities."

Eliminating internet and computer use from your life is impossible, so be sure to practice safe computing habits to protect yourself from cyber attacks.

ALTERT !!! Adfoc.us Biggest Scammer 2012 with Proof

ALTERT !!! Adfoc.us Biggest Scammer 2012 with Proof


WARNING !!! Adfocus Biggest Scammer 2012 with Proof
Hi all users, now a days I'm having very hectic schedule but instead of that I have e to write this to alert you and secure your online earnings. As you may notice that we were using adfoc.us from past 25 days to earn some revenue from this website because it (adfoc.us) claims to pay highest payout amongst all the link shortner service out there, but the turth is  "Adfoc.us is a Biggest Scammer of 2012".  You need to stay away from this company."
For those who already join this ads network should quit right now because they are big scammer. You know why I made this post, I'm the one who got fooled by this company. I never received a single penny from them, and today when I requested my first payment they banned my account without any reason and without any notice.

My first payment was $226.03, in 7th July 2012 I requested my payment from them.
See these screens :

After clicking "REQUEST PAYMENT" button it said "you will be paid $226.04 within 24-72 hours". But my actual payment was $226.03 WTF is this ?

Then, today 10th July 2012 I tried to login my account and I got this message :

I tried to contact their support, two times I made ticket but didn't receive any respond from them, and today finally  I came to know that they are big scammer and they banns their user without any reason.


The moral of the story is "if you earn less then $50, they may pay you (not guaranteed) but if you earn more that $50 they will get fucked and they will ban you without any notification . If you still believe them, try it by yourself.
To Adfoc.us : If you don't have money to pay your publishers, then you should take down your company. We're as a blogger work hard for our blog to get visitors, and also work very hard to create a links with your company. We should get our payment for our work. This is not about money matter, but it's moral that you need to take care about. So, do you job and pay our(and all the publishers who are scammed by you) money. Don't SHOW OFF adfoc.us, just FUCK OFFF!!!

Dear user, what do you think, post your thoughts here. 

Note :- Spread this message as much as you can until the  take-down of fucing adfoc.us
