Just yesterday, [url=https://community.webroot.com/t5/Community-Announcements/Threats-Could-Care-Less-what-OS-you-prefer/m-p/31258]I posted[/url] about our new-and-improved SecureAnywhere solution for Macs. The purpose was two-fold: 1. I wanted to make sure WSA users know that our very useful Password Manager is now included in our Mac solution (if you have an ISP or Complete subscription) and 2. I wanted to remind Webroot Community-goers that Macs are not virus/phishing-proof. Well, sure enough, here's a new reinforcement of my reminder. According to numerous reports ([url=http://tnw.co/15wvIoo]including this one[/url] by The Next Web), Russian security firm Doctor Web discovered a new Mac Trojan by the name of Yontoo that tries to trick users into installing a browser plugin in an attempt to steal info and make money for it's creators. "When launched, Trojan.Yontoo.1 prompts the user to install something called "Free Twit Tub" or something similar...instead of the claim

Why It's Too Late for an Android 'Facebook Phone' Facebook is set to announce on Thursday new software for Android phones that will transform them into "Facebook phones," brining features such as the news feed and chat to the foreground. Leaks from the App Police website indicate that the experience, Facebook Home, would come pre-loaded on an HTC phone and soon be available for download from Google Play. However, the young people who set mobile trends might see Facebook Home as more of a hijack than a feature— especially since they've moved on from Facebook to other mobile networks. >> Learn More: [url=http://www.technewsdaily.com/17589-too-late-for-facebook-phone.html?cmpid=520740]http://www.technewsdaily.com/17589-too-late-for-facebook-phone.html?cmpid=520740[/url]
[b]Android Phones Release Confidential Contents When Frozen[/b] Android is the world’s most popular smartphone operating system, but it’s also the least secure: Most security firms agree that Google’s little green robot is the most popular place for new malware. While Android is exceedingly susceptible because its code is famously open source, a team of German researchers have discovered a new vulnerability in the operating system, which essentially bypasses Google’s data scrambling encryption system introduced in Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to reveal the phone’s hidden data. Engineers at the Friedrich-Alexander University in Erlangen, Germany, released a report on Thursday that explains how freezing an Android phone can help law enforcement or forensic workers expose a scrambled Android phone’s contact lists, photos, browsing histories and more.

Several days ago, the e-mail account of a high-profile Tibetan activist was hacked and used to send targeted attacks to other activists and human rights advocates. Perhaps the most interesting part is that the attack e-mails had an APK attachment - a malicious program for Android.

I am not new to Webroot but I am new to the Community. I have been very satisfied with the product, no disabling virus attachs since I started using the product. That is huge to me and I will not change unless something happens going forward. I just renewed my subscription for 3yrs.

Yesterday, Microsoft released nine bulletins (two of them rated as 'critical' while the rest are 'important'), and addressed 13 security vulnerabilities in total, according to a [url=http://securitywatch.pcmag.com/none/310194-microsoft-fixes-critical-ie-bugs-in-april-patch-tuesday]recent PC Mag report[/url]. The difference between 'critical' and 'important' is in how an attacker can exploit the vulnerabilities-remotely for 'critical' vs. needing access to the system for 'important'. And for this month's Patch Tuesday, Internet Explorer proved to be the highest priority. "The highest priority bulletin this month is the update for Internet Explorer (MS13-028), which fixes a use-after-free issue in all supported versions of the Web browser from IE 6 to IE 10, which if exploited, can result in remote code execution..." [i] [/i] The article goes onto explain that, while the bulletin is 'critical', the priority index is listed at a '2', meaning that the Microsoft isn't expecting to se

[b] 9 April 2013 Last updated at 07:08 ET BBC News [/b] [b] [/b] Microsoft has accused rival Google of pushing Android handset makers to use its applications such as YouTube and Maps. Along with Oracle, Nokia and 14 other tech firms, Microsoft has filed a complaint with the European Commission. The group, known as FairSearch, argues that Google is abusing its dominance of the mobile market. In response to the filing, Google said: "We continue to work co-operatively with the European Commission." [b]Trojan Horse[/b] [b] [/b] "We are asking the commission to move quickly and decisively to protect competition and innovation in this critical market," said Thomas Vinje, Brussels-based counsel for FairSearch. "Failure to act will only embolden Google to repeat its desktop abuses of dominance as consumers increasingly turn to a mobile platform dominated by Google's Android operating system," he added. Android is now the dominant mobile operating system, accounting for 70% of
Lately, our [url=http://www.webroot.com/En_US/business/resources/]resources page[/url] has been filling up with some fascinating material about all of our Webroot solutions.

[b]9 April 2013 Last updated at 07:43 ET BBC[/b] A camera able to create 3D images up to one kilometre (0.62 miles) away has been developed by a team in Edinburgh. Physicists at Heriot-Watt University developed a technique which uses lasers to scan almost any object. With extra research, the camera's range could extend to 10km (6.2 miles), the team said. It will primarily be used to scan objects such as vehicles - but is unable to detect human skin. The reason is that skin does not reflect the laser in the same way as most other objects - meaning for those wishing to evade the camera's gaze, stripping naked is an option. Beyond capturing images of objects, the technology could also be used to keep track of the movement of rocks, or foliage growth.

Well, yesterday I went to our computer office to put down some stuff. The home-screen was visible, so I saw the wallpaper. I couldn't notice if any windows were open, but anyways, I returned to the computer a few minutes later and lots of windows were open. Nobody was on it. I remember iTunes was the current task, and I looked down at the desk and heard music. iTunes started playing a song by itself.... I can't remember if I clicked another song, but another one started playing. I eventually closed iTunes and Firefox windows started opening. I typed Ctrl + Alt + Del and went to the tab 'Users' and all I could see was the Owner (us). So I started closing out a bunch of other programs and went to YouTube to see a video on how to see who's hacking your computer... I opened up CMD during the video, and when I went back to type, all the text was gone. I didn't see the program being opened during the video and I didn't see text being erased either. At this time, I already was doing a scan
