Those of us who are able to work remotely in response to the COVID-19 outbreak are now taking more of our IT security into our own hands. But beyond staying aware of the latest coronavirus-inspired scams, what we can do to look after our own online security in these uncertain times? What follows is our time-tested list of cybersecurity best practices that, in a perfect world, we’d all adhere to all the time. Nothing flashy, nothing dramatic. Just a list of habits cybersecurity experts agree could help make us all a little more cyber resilient. Use antivirus software While it sounds like a given from a company that makes it, antivirus software—we prefer the all-encompassing term anti-malware software, since viruses are only one strain of malicious software and you’re likely to be targeted by others—is an essential step in securing your devices.

More than $26 BILLION in losses were reported to the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) between June 2016 and July 2019 as a result of BEC. That’s almost equal to Cambodia’s entire economic output in 2019.And the IC3 anticipated in a statement in early April that the problem would only be worsened by the epidemic as cybercriminals seek to capitalize on confusion and uncertainty to steal money or valuable data. So when a user asked what can be done to protect against BEC, yeah, we t

Just in case it had escaped ones attention Windows is 30 years old this month as Windows 1.0 was release this this month in 1985. This original version of the OS came as a standard DOS setup (on a 5.25? floppy disk) with by current standards a simple point-and-click interface and displayed in glorious Hercules monochrome or CGA graphics.

When Nokia first unveiled its [url=http://reviews.cnet.co.uk/mobile-phones/nokia-lumia-520-review-50010925/]Nokia Lumia 520[/url] this past February, the Windows Phone proved that Nokia could achieve new lows.

As CNET UK discovered while [url=http://reviews.cnet.co.uk/mobile-phones/nokia-lumia-520-review-50010925/]fully reviewing the Lumia 520[/url], Nokia has managed to create a very inexpensive handset that will sell in the U.K. for about 100 pounds at full retail price.

In the tech world, it Google that is most readily associated with ads, but it is far from alone. Apple is perhaps not quite as guilty of bombarding people with advertising as some companies, but starting October 25, the App Store will be used to display more ads than ever before.Although Apple has not exactly shouted about the impending change -- one that is sure to irritate even the most devote fans of Apple -- details of what is happening have been shared in emails sent out to developers.

When wanting to find what folder a bookmark is in, sometimes (for me) the FF blue star in the navigation pane doesn't work and even when it does it is still a bit of a PITA to locate the folder. This add-on solves that problem. When you search for a bookmark it instantly shows the folder path and you can even search for a bookmark folder (and see where it is in your bookmark folder tree) as well. Cool! Also the developer is VERY responsive.
