Safe Surfing

This time of year many of us spend a lot of time on the internet for work, play and shopping. Even though I have written several articles about the “FAKE AV” Virus every week I hear about another customer who has gotten the virus.

Here are my top ten tips to avoid viruses and malware.

Fake antivirus software is spreading through a massive online campaign.

Beware: a massive email campaign is underway to trick users into opening an HTML file attachment that redirects users to a hacked website containing links that further lure victims into launching a fake antivirus software package. According to security firm Sophos, the email messages are designed to trick people into paying to remove threats from their computer that may not really exist.

“New” way to backup to disk!

Tape drives are becoming a thing of the past. They are costly, unreliable, limited storage and wear out often. That is one reason online backups are becoming so popular.

Now we are running into limitations with the amount of data that can be sent via internet to an offsite backup site due to internet speed constraints.
