    Small Town Security (2012– )

    Can anyone get this TV show. Can't find it anywhere. Thanks
  2. Hello I am having some trouble with links I am using chrome with Ad-blocker enabled. When I visit to a link, for an example This one which is on there front page it re-direct to another URL which is showing as on the bellow image. Then it re-directing to advisement presented by that URL. This happens when Ad-blocker enabled. If I disabled the Ad-blocker then it is NOT re-directing. This only happens with Chrome when Ad-blocker is enabled. Works with out trouble on Firefox * I tried by deleting chrome cache. But nothing changed * Then I uninstalled the chrome and re-installed new copy. But nothing changed * I tried with Zenmate VPN enabled to see is this is ISP related. But nothing changed So if you are a chrome user with Adblcoker enabled, I want to know your experience regarding this issue. Use whatever link that you like and please confirm, I am the only victim or not. Thank You...
  3. WEB SECURITY AND YOU QSS is supported by ads, but some ads can be dangerous. Never install software acquired from an advertisement. There are many places to get free, safe programs. Always scan your downloads with a trusted Anti-Virus program. Use Mozilla Firefox and utilize the security add-ons! Here are some recommended plugins for firefox. Adblock Plus- The program turns ads on and off for particular sites and features customizable blocking filters. On the New York Times home page, for example, Adblock Plus removes all ads while leaving just the articles and photos. This is a GREAT program- install and enjoy immediately. Adblock Plus is the best tool for minimizing the impact of annoying (and possibly malicious) ads. For blocking Flash animations (which are a frequent source of intrusion, judging by the constant stream of Flash Player security patches), use Flashblock. This add-on replaces Flash animations with a playback button you can press if you want to view them, which is a good compromise for people who don't want to disable Flash entirely. You can create a whitelist of sites where you always want Flashblock to be off, such as YouTube, but Javascript must be enabled for Flashblock to work. For full control of Javascript, Flash, Silverlight, QuickTime, and other plug-ins, look no further than NoScript, an extremely powerful and customizable Firefox extension that can block pretty much every kind of script. [*]When making transactions on the Internet, check that the process is carried out through a secure server. Several characteristics identify these types of servers. One of these is the address that appears in the address bar in the browser, which starts with https://. What's more, a padlock or key icon will appear in the browser window. If the padlock is closed or the key is complete (not broken), the server is secure. [*]Another recommendable measure is to disable the cookies from the toolbar in the browser you are using. Although they must be enabled in order to access some web pages, they can be enabled temporarily. Even though it may be tiresome enabling and disabling the cookies, it can prevent a lot of serious problems. [*]To avoid falling victim to phishing scams, make sure that the page you are visiting is legitimate. To do this, copy the URL of the web site you want to visit and paste it in the address bar of the browser. [*]It is also advisable to identify and monitor the Java Applets and JavaScripts on the system to avoid any nasty surprises. Raise the security zone in the browser to 'medium' or 'high'. This can be done from the toolbar in the browser you are using. [*]Finally, make sure that you have a reliable antivirus installed, which is updated at least once a day. This will prevent malicious code from slipping into your computer while you are browsing the Internet. SAFE INTERNET BROWSING Users in all corners of the globe browse the Internet everyday. However, in spite of appearances, it is not free from dangerous threats. Bear in mind that visiting a web page is not a passive activity, but both the computer establishing the connection and the web server that hosts the data to be consulted need to communicate and to do this they must transfer data. This data transfer is not direct and must pass through several computers, meaning that the information can be intercept by any of them. Even though secure servers, which encrypt the data to be transferred, are available, the majority of web pages do not implement this security measure. One of the dangers faced by users when they browse the Internet is a hacker accessing their cookies, small text files saved on the users computers by the server of the page the user is visiting. The information cookies contain is usually related to the page being visited, which can include user names and passwords, browsing preferences, etc. Java Applets and JavaScripts can also put users at risk. Although the majority of these programs that are run on the user's computer at the request of the server are harmless, they can be designed to steal system information and send it to a malicious user. Another threat that is becoming one of the most dangerous threats on the Internet is phishing. This technique involves tricking users into thinking that are visiting a legitimate web page, when they are actually visiting a malicious page. This technique is particularly dangerous when the malicious page simulates an online banking page. Web pages that perfectly imitate the appearance and functions of well-known banking entities are becoming increasingly common-place on the Internet and entice users into entering personal data that will fall directly in the hands of unscrupulous cyber criminals. But that's not all, there are also viruses that are capable of getting into computers when users browse the Internet. To do this, they usually exploit vulnerabilities that allow them to install themselves on computers without the user realizing. The malicious code that have the capacity to do this include many Trojans designed to steal confidential information from affected computers. Not Original Work Thanks Wombat H. Christ
  4. One of the main reasons people get infected in the first place is that they are not practicing Safe Internet. You practice Safe Internet when you educate yourself on how to properly use the Internet through the use of security tools and good practice. Knowing how you can get infected and what types of files and sites to avoid will be the most crucial step in keeping your computer malware free. The reality is that the majority of people who are infected with malware are ones who click on things they shouldn't be clicking on. Whether these things are files or sites it doesn't really matter. If something is out to get you, and you click on it, it most likely will. Below are a list of simple precautions to take to keep your computer clean and running securely: 1. If you receive an attachment from someone you do not know, DO NOT OPEN IT! Simple as that. Opening attachments from people you do not know is a very common method for viruses or worms to infect your computer. 2. If you receive an attachment and it ends with a .exe, .com, .bat, or .pif do not open the attachment unless you know for a fact that it is clean. For the casual computer user, you will almost never receive a valid attachment of this type. 3. If you receive an attachment from someone you know, and it looks suspicious, then it probably is. The email could be from someone you know infected with a malware that is trying to infect everyone in their address book. 4. If you are browsing the Internet and a popup appears saying that you are infected, ignore it!. These are, as far as I am concerned, scams that are being used to scare you into purchasing a piece of software. 5. Another tactic to fool you on the web is when a site displays a popup that looks like a normal Windows message or alert. When you click on them, though, they instead bring you to another site that is trying to push a product on you. We suggest that you close these windows by clicking on the X instead of the OK button. Alternatively, you can check to see if it's a real alert by right-clicking on the window. If there is a menu that comes up saying Add to Favorites... you know it's a fake. 6. Do not go to adult sites. I know this may bother some of you, but the fact is that a large amount of malware is pushed through these types of sites. I am not saying all adult sites do this, but a lot do. 7. When using an Instant Messaging program be cautious about clicking on links people send to you. It is not uncommon for infections to send a message to everyone in the infected person's contact list that contains a link to an infection. Instead when you receive a message that contains a link, message back to the person asking if it is legit before you click on it. 8. Stay away from Crack sites! , the downloads from these sites are typically overrun with infections. 9. Be careful of what you download off of web sites and Peer-2-Peer networks. Some sites disguise malware as legitimate software to trick you into installing them and Peer-2-Peer networks are crawling with it. If you want to download a piece of software a from a site, and are not sure if they are legitimate, you can use McAfee Siteadvisor to look up info on the site. 10. DO NOT INSTALL any software without first reading the End User License Agreement, otherwise known as the EULA. A tactic that some developers use is to offer their software for free, but have spyware and other programs you do not want bundled with it. This is where they make their money. By reading the agreement there is a good chance you can spot this and not install the software. 11. Scan everything don't be ignorant heres a common phrase we see on the qss forum (internet cafe) Untested, unscanned Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently It is important that you visit regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates. Use an AntiVirus Software It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future. More than one AntiVirus Antivirus programs work by using an actual virus to detect another one on your computer. So, if you have more than one piece of software running at the same time, each program will think the other is a virus. The two or more programs will conflict in many ways Update your AntiVirus Software It is imperative that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out. If you use a commercial antivirus program you must make sure you keep renewing your subscription. Otherwise, once your subscription runs out, you may not be able to update the programs virus definitions. Make sure your applications have all of their updates It is also possible for other programs on your computer to have security vulnerability that can allow malware to infect you. Therefore, it is also a good idea to check for the latest versions of commonly installed applications that are regularly patched to fix vulnerabilities. Use a Firewall I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is susceptible to being hacked and taken over. I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly. Install an AntiSpyware Program Recommended, and free, AntiSpyware programs are Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, SuperAntiSpyware, Spybot - Search and Destroy, and Ad-Aware Personal. Installing these programs will provide spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should scan your computer with an AntiSpyware program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software. Not Original Work Thanks Tomy
