Is Wi-Fi making you sick?

Wireless technology is everywhere these days. Almost every home seems to have a wi-fi router, as computer users find it so much easier to set up than running Ethernet cables. Businesses too are increasingly deploying wireless networks along with their wired ones, so employees can use their mobile devices while moving around the building. Hotels, conference centers, city parks, restaurants, coffee shops, airports they all have wireless hot spots, both public and private. Even on a cruise ship in the middle of the ocean, you cant escape those signals.Is Wi-Fi making you sick

Ransomware takes it to the next level: Javascript

If youre lucky, youve only been hearing a lot about ransomware lately. If youre not so lucky, you might have experienced it firsthand. Victims of this most insidious form of malware know how devastating it can be to find that suddenly all of your important data from personal financial information to irreplaceable photos to mission-critical business documents is inaccessible. Its not gone (perhaps that would be less frustrating), but its sitting there on your drive, encrypted, and you dont have the key to unlock it. This has been the reality for many ransomware victims and now there is a new type of ransomware to be on the lookout for, one of the nastiest yet.
Ransomware has been in existence for over two decades (the first was the AIDS Trojan in the late 1980s), but there has been an explosion of it in the last few years, and its gotten more sophisticated. There are two basic types. In the case of computer locker ransomware, your entire system is locked so you cant log on. More commonly now, with crypto ransomware, the system is accessible but the data files are encrypted.

How the US Government vs. Apple will have long-lasting ramifications

If you believe Hollywood, or just about any modern crime or spy fiction, hacking our cellphones and computers is trivially easy for the resident tech guy on the team. He or she just needs the right connector, and a few keystrokes, and theyre in. All of the secrets stored on the device are out in the open and at their disposal. From a law enforcement perspective, if only it were that easy! From a privacy and security perspective, thank goodness its not. From a paranoiac perspective, what if it is? To Apple, the FBI, and to many others, the question of just what can and cannot be done is highly relevant at this time.US Government vs. Apple will have long-lasting ramifications

Microsoft seems to have a thing for Sweet 16 lately, as once again theyve released sixteen updates for this months Patch Tuesday, ensuring that IT professionals will be kept busy sorting through them, testing them and getting them applied.

The bottom line
Ensuring that networks are secure and that compliance with regulations and industry standards can be achieved is a complex task for any organisation no matter how small or large. An organisation that tries to do everything itself will be in a constant state of catch up, which often leaves vulnerabilities exposed. As networks become increasingly open and inter-connected, with always-on availability expected from an ever-growing variety of devices, a far better strategy is to offload security needs that are either not a core competence or that are complex and costly to manage to a third party that has specialised expertise.
