Hello, First of all I am aware that the issue I am going to explain here doesn't primarily belong to Webroot. It is rather Google's issue. Anyway maybe somebody experienced the same problem and might shed more light on how to solve it. I had installed Android Premier Paid. I switched my license to Complete two days ago by the following steps. 1) I uninstalled Premium 2) Downloaded Complete from the Google play, installed and activated Looking into installed applications in my HTC, I see there only Complete being installed, no mentions about Premier. That's alright. However looking into Google play account there is Premier as being installed and requiring update or uninstalling. Please see below snap: [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/676i226F95AAE27F9849.jpg[/img] If I uninstall Premier, it is back within a few minutes. If I start updating, it is downloading Premier to my HTC what I cancelled immediately because I don
[b]Description[/b] A Critical Patch Update is a collection of patches for multiple security vulnerabilities. The Critical Patch Update for Java SE also includes non-security fixes. Critical Patch Updates are cumulative and each advisory describes only the security fixes added since the previous Critical Patch Update and Security Alert. Thus, prior Critical Patch Update and Security Alert advisories should be reviewed for information regarding earlier accumulated security fixes.

Found the following new article on [url=http://www.pcworld.com/article/2012128/researchers-steam-url-protocol-can-be-abused-to-exploit-game-vulnerabilities.html]PCWorld[/url] As quite a few of us are gamers,this is something worth looking at.I,however,do not have steam anything on my pc as i have known for quite some time about it's numerous vulnerabilities.I would assume most of us are covered with WSA anyways,but it's definitely worth a look.
Hi All, I'm excited to announce that Webroot is now officially part of Facebook's recently [url=http://on.fb.me/RyNTDM]revamped AV Marketplace[/url]! Why is this great? Now, any of Facebook's 1 billion plus users can download a free 6-month trial of Webroot's award-winning SecureAnywhere Antivirus and protect themselves against an array of online security threats such as viruses, phishing, malicious websites, ID theft, and other malware. Also, when a user clicks on a Facebook newsfeed that leads to a malicious website, Webroot will notify them that the site is known to be malicious. Cybercriminals are always looking for new ways to exploit users and companies. As Facebook continues to grow and evolve, the updated AV Marketplace will undoubtedly help them do it much more safely and help users feel comfortable going about their daily social media routines. From Joe Sullivan, Facebook's Chief Security Officer: [i]"Today we are excited to announce the add

Just a day after rolling out Firefox 16, Mozilla pulled it from the installer page due to a security vulnerability that allow "a malicious site to potentially determine which websites users have visited", accordingly to Mozilla. The company also said that only a limited number of users have been affected and that no users had been upgraded automatically to Firefox 16. A fix is in the works and is expected to be implemented today, according to Michael Coates, Mozilla's director of security assurance. While there's "no indication" that this vulnerability is currently being exploited, users who upgraded can downgrade back down to 15.0.1 and will be automatically upgraded when the new version is fixed and made available again.

Hello Webroot Community, Dan from Webroot’s Threat Research Team here. As malware researchers, we are often asked about malware threats that appear in news articles and blog posts. This week has been no different. An article about the Zeus Trojan appeared in a publication for Online Retailers, and a new spam campaign impersonating Skype has been sighted as well. If you are running Webroot SecureAnywhere, we have you protected, and you need not worry about these threats. Those of you that read our [url=http://blog.webroot.com/2012/09/07/cybercriminals-abuse-skypes-sms-sending-feature-release-diy-sms-flooders/]Webroot Threat Blog[/url] know that our Blogger Dancho Danchev has been following SMS flooders using Skype among other apps that can be used to send SMS messages for a while now. Now we’re seeing reports of spam emails claiming that you have a new voicemail on Skype. Zeus is a threat that we’re quite familiar with, and our protection against it is excellent. Webroot SecureAn
Quite a bit more than you think, actually. Say hello to "Pinkie Pie", a 19 year-old hacker who just won $60,000 for overthrowing Google Chrome's security...twice. The first time around, Pinkie put together at least six different bug exploits in order to sneak by Google's sophisticated defense perimeter at the first installment of the Google-sponsored Pwnium, a contest that offered $1 million in prizes to people who could crack Chrome. The second installment of Pwnium ended yesterday at the Hack in the Box 2012 security conference in Malaysia. There, for the second time, Pinkie, (or is Mr. Pie more appropriate?), exploited two vulnerabilities to solidify his prize, according to Chris Evans, a Google software engineer. Now this is a good (and not too common) example of hacking being used for a good cause. In this case, not only did Google thank and pay Pinkie for his efforts, but more importantly, they were able to patch up the vulnerabilities and release the
According to a freshly-published informationweek story, the latest Microsoft Security Intelligence Report's findings show that malware infections on Windows 7 SP1 and Windows XP SP3 machines drastically increased while Vista SP2 machines infections plummeted compared to the last quarter of 2011. So what's causing this sudden infection rise? For Windows XP SP3, which saw infections decline for several quarters, the increase can likely be attributed to the Dorkbot worm infection as well as the Pluzoks Trojan, which is active in South Korea (where XP is still the most widely-used OS). For Windows 7 SP1, the likely cause of the infection spike is a combination of a growing user base (new users w/lower degree of security awareness), an increase in social engineering attacks using keygen, plus the Blacole exploit kit and recent Adobe vulnerabilities. You can check out the full article [url=http://bit.ly/QbunOA]here[/url]. I suggest you do as it has some great numbers and
Earlier today hackers attacked World of Warcraft realms and used an exploit to kill virtual player and non-player characters in major capital cities such as Orgrimmar and Stormwind within the game. Blizzard Entertainment apologized to players and is taking the disruptive action very seriously. They are conducting an investigation on the attack which apparently began on Sunday and say that it has been hotfixed and non-repeatable. I would be upset if I paid a monthly fee for a Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG) and my characters were killed by hackers! Let us know if you feel the same and if you have a favorite MMORPG. :D [b][url=http://www.slashgear.com/world-of-warcraft-city-deaths-patched-while-murderer-roams-free-08250899/]You can read the full article here.[/url][/b]
This week is the RSA Europe conference this week in London. [b]Are you?[/b] Webroot's very own blog superstar, Dancho Danchev, is presenting on [b]"Cyber Jihad and Cyberterrorism"[/b] on Thursday, October 11th. A hot topic and Danchev provides some unique perspective. [url=http://blog.webroot.com/2012/10/08/upcoming-webroot-presentation-on-cyber-jihad-and-cyberterrorism-at-rsa-europe-2012/]Here is an overview of his presentation.[/url] If you're attending, be sure to stop by and say hello!

For today's eye-opening fact, I present to you a number....42. Why is it important, you ask? The number 42 represents the percent increase form last year of successful cybercrime attacks against U.S. businesses according to the "2012 Cost of Cyber Crime Study" conducted by Ponemon Institute and sponsored by HP. As the number of attacks go up, consequently so does the amount spent on defending against them. Here are some key points and numbers from the article, which can be found [url=http://bit.ly/Q96JCs]here[/url] in it's entirety. [list] [*]In 2012, cybercrime costs businesses a whopping $8.9 million a year. That's 6% more expensive than 2011 and [b]38%[/b] more than 2010! [*]56 businesses were profiled in the study-[b]collectively[/b] they reported seeing [b]102 successful attacks[/b] per week on average- up from 72 last year, and 50 in 2010 ([b]Individually[/b], it's [b]1.8 successful attacks[/b] per week). [*]It's taking business longer to respond to security
Hi, I hope this is the right place to post about this problem. I joined the Community a couple of months ago, but my password seems to keep expiring. I have things set to remember my log-in details; and for the most part this works. However on two occasions now auto sign-in has not occurred and when I choose to sign-in and manually enter my details, I am told the password does not exist. Each time I have requested a password reset e-mail and this has allowed me to enter a new password. Do the passwords automatically expire after a certain time or am I missing something here? Thanks in advance!
I could go into the details, but I believe this infographic really says it all. Plus, you can just read the full article [url=http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2410607,00.asp]here[/url]. Enjoy... [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/612i431D980D0BF835C7.jpg[/img]
