I have just installed the updated Webroot but the main thing is that it is not running properly on the MAC system and the we all know that cybersecurity is important for all the devices. It is not making me to have the iTunes access as it is giving ~[u]"iTune Error 9"[/u] ~ (Removed Link ~ PTD) and it is happening because of the webroot.
By [url=http://www.technologyreview.com/contributor/tom-simonite/]Tom Simonite[/url] on September 16, 2015 Facebook’s ad targeting algorithms are about to get a new firehose of valuable and controversial personal data. Starting next month, the millions of Facebook “Like” and “Share” buttons that publishers have added to their pages and mobile apps will start funneling data on people’s Web browsing habits into the company’s ad targeting systems. After the change, the types of sites you visit could be used to tune ads shown to you inside Facebook’s social networking service, its photo-sharing service Instagram, and mobile apps that use Facebook’s ad network.

As some of you may know, to fight the isolation and uncertainty brought on by the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, we've initiated something we're referring to as "Office Hours" on the Webroot Community. It's meant to be a thread where people can come together and pose their COVID/cybersecurity-related questions to some of our experts, and we try to help however we can. The response has been nothing short of amazing. The thoughtfulness and engagement of our users is a great reminder of why we began this Community in the first place. In fact, some of the questions we've received are so excellent, I thought they bear repeating and their answers a little further development. I'll begin with this one: How can MSPs help their clients bounce back from these challenging times? - David H. It's a great question for at least a couple reasons. To start, exceptional customer service is a great way for MSPs to stand out in an industry with typically tight margins. The second reason is even m
Cyber Threats in the Time of COVID-19 In the past 3 months, we’ve seen a staggering amount of change worldwide, not least of which involves the majority of global business offices switching to WFH. With so many employees suddenly working from their home devices and networks, this massive shift has brought numerous challenges for employees and employers alike. One of the main challenges is that many employees were not set up for successful, secure remote work. While they might’ve had antivirus, DNS protection, VPNs, group policies, and other cybersecurity measures on corporate devices, not all employees could take these computers home with them. That means they had to start using personal devices for work, which begs the question: how many of those devices had robust cybersecurity measures (if any) in place? Probably not many at all. So now the problem becomes clearer; valuable company data is being sent via unsecured or inadequately secured devices, across unsecured or inadequate

Is there a way to set up the Webroot VPN that allows printing to my wireless printer? At this point, in order to print I need to disconnect the VPN. I would prefer to have a seamless way to print while remaining connected. Do you know if this is possible? I previously tried ExpressVPN and they had a setting that got around the wireless printer issue.

Multiple Irish Educational Institutions Suffer Ransomware AttacksWithin the past week, both the National College of Ireland and the Technological University of Dublin have fallen victim to ransomware attacks that have caused major disruptions in their normal operations. All IT services for both institutions have been taken offline to reduce the overall impact of the attacks and have begun reaching out to students regarding their classes and assignments. Officials for the universities are still working to identify the origin of the attacks and if any personally identifiable information belonging to staff or students was stolen.High Volume Office Depot Database Left UnsecuredLate last week, researchers discovered a misconfigured, and unsecured database belonging to Office Depot and containing nearly a million unique records.

A "poorer" brother of Ferrari, Maserati marque unveiled their [url=http://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/shanghai-auto-show/maserati-ghibli-shanghai-motor-show-2013]new gun[/url] against Mercedes Benz E-class and BMW 5-series. Look at the pictures, it's a typical Italian design. No sharp edges, fluently flowing design which is highly aerodynamically effective, coupled with the strong engines under the hood and with the latest technologic innovations, it seems the car to beat. I am afraid MB and BMW will not have a quiet sleep. Serves them right!!! :p

Was hoping to get a relatively quick response to browser preferences. I am currently using IE 9 but am not very satisfied with it. I have used Firefox and Chrome in the past, but don't want to go to the trouble of downloading and installing and setting up all the stuff if the newest versions aren't up to snuff. Do the great majority of peeps prefer one over the other? I am running Vista fully up-to-date on 3 units, XP SP-3 updated through the cut-off. I'll hang out for a bit and see what comes up here. I appreciate some "studied" responses. Please, I need considered opinions and facts, not random input from less experienced users, though I appreciate those thoughts too! Please understand that expediency is my aim not offending members. Ch 4 t
I just read about the "webhp" virus for Chrome after noticing that phrase in my omnibox. I want to know if it is real, what type of threat it is to my browsing, and most importantly why my Secure Anywhere Complete didn't catch or remove it when I scan. It's pretty upsetting that a virus can exist on my computer after I bought this product. Can anyone help alleviate my concerns or tell me what I can do? Please.

Rudder's post described a few of the experiments that the dating website had carried out. In one, OKCupid told people that they would be good matches with certain other people even though the site's algorithms had determined that they would be bad matches. That's right: The company deliberately lied to its users. OKCupid wanted to see if people liked each other because they have the capacity to make up their own m

Other users have the error message showing up constantly, but without any apparent impact to the stability of the Mac. ✿✿ Full Article ✿✿
October 20, 2020How to get the Windows 10 October 2020 UpdateByJohn Cable, Vice President, Program Management, Windows Servicing and Delivery With organizations moving and adapting from remote to hybrid work scenarios, and essential workers continuing to support us all, it is more important than ever that we continue to provide you with the tools you need to remain protected and productive. In June, we announced Windows 10, version 20H2—and the availability of the first preview build in the Windows Insider Program. We then released a preview build to commercial customers in the Beta and Release Preview Channels for pre-release validation in August. We have continued to make improvements based on the feedback received through these programs and I am pleased to announce that we are beginning the availability of the October 2020 Update. Today’s post offers details on our measured and phased roll out approach, how you can get the update, and information to enable commercial organizations t
April 25, 2017 10:00 am By [url=https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/author/john-cable/]John Cable[/url] / Director of Program Management, Windows Servicing and DeliveryTwo weeks ago, we began rolling out the Windows 10 Creators Update. Today, I’d like to share some insights into the feedback we’re hearing, and some specific ways we plan to use that feedback to adjust our rollout process. As we [url=https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2017/03/30/managing-windows-10-creators-update-rollout-seamless-experience/]previously announced[/url], the first phase of the rollout targets newer devices. Based on testing work done with our OEM hardware and ISV app partners, we believe these devices will have the best possible update experience and help us decide when it’s time to begin the next phase of the rollout.
