How to avoid Computer Viruses – Stop using Bing

If you use Microsoft Bing as your Search Engine you are more likely to become infected with Adobe Reader Computer Viruses The IT Guys (WA) remove a lot of computer viruses on behalf of our clients who are mostly new or recent Windows 8 purchasers used to using Windows 7!! The reasons ….. Internet Explorer, Bing and Adobe Reader!!!! Let me explain…… in addition to removing computer viruses, we are also interested in how they are contracted. After speaking to hundreds of clients we started seeing a few common patterns and one pattern in particular. These clients will have recently purchased a laptop of desktop computer with Windows 8.1 operating system usually pre-installed, after setting up their mail and trying to open a PDF attachment with the Windows 8.1 built in PDF viewer, they decide they would prefer to have their old familiar Adobe Reader instead and they go off looking for it. Windows 8.1 comes with Internet Explorer browser by default, which is also setup to use Microsoft’s Bing search engine by default. When you make a search using bing for the term “adobe reader” you are presented with results similar to the following.   The above results highlighted in yellow are all Bing advertisements and just about every one one of those links will result in contracting adware, spyware and worse. The official Adobe Acrobat reader site (adobe.com) is the first organic result but many, many people will click on results 1 to 3 which are all paid advertising. Why Microsoft allows such blatantly fraud companies to advertise on Bing is beyond comprehension. Now try the same search on Google Chrome …… (see results below) No scam advertising and the first result is clearly the genuine site. Google are obviously more vigilant and security conscious than Microsoft. Their strict adwords adverting policy does not allow such scam companies to advertise. Chrome is trying very hard to protect consumers from such scam companies and is making it more difficult to accidentally download harmful software. Google Chrome recently added a new warning to Chrome that pops up before users visit a site that will encourage downloads of unwanted software. A red warning lets readers know that the site they’re about to visit “might attempt to trick you into installing programs that harm your browsing experience” by, for example, switching your homepage or injecting extra ads on your screen. Chrome already has a warning that pops up once a software download is initiated.

5 iPhone failed passcodes could mean losing all data

Having work emails on your iPhone could result in all data being erased after only 5 failed passcode attempts There is a feature on your iPhone that allows the data on your phone to be automatically erased if the passcode is entered incorrectly after 10 or less attempts. While this is a very good feature to ensure that a thief cannot get at your personal data if your phone is stolen, having the phone fall into the hands of a toddler can also have the same effect resulting in a complete loss of data after the phone is automatically “wiped“. Having your data erased or wiped is not a big thing as long as your regularly backup your data (allowing a complete restore or re-install of your phone from the backup) but without that backup you could lose everything. Even the best data recovery and CSI police departments do not have a solution to recovering data from a wiped-iPhone.   How to check if the iPhone “Erase Data” feature is switched on If the “Erase Data” button is switched on (green) then make sure you know your passcode and that you keep the phone well away from toddlers and infants. How could I lose my data after only 5 failed attempts and not 10? If you access your company emails on your iphone, the company has the ability to change the number of failed passcode attempts and has the option of either disabling the phone or erasing all the data on it. We recently had an employee of Woodside Petroleum (Perth, Australia) bring his phone in to us who’s grandchild had managed to get at his phone and repeatedly press the passcode screen. Unbeknownst to the employee, Woodside had changed the settings to erase all data after only 5 failed passcode attempts instead of the usual 10. We tried to recover the data but the phone had been completely wiped.   More Help from Apple iOS passcodes Forgot passcode for your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, or your device is disabled Deploying iPhone and iPad Security Overview Need more help?
