New Android Malware Blocks Outgoing Calls To Banks To Keep You From Reporting Or Canceling Suspicious Activity

Online security experts have discovered a new Android malware that blocks outgoing calls to banks to keep customers from complaining about suspicious activity. Symantec, an American technology company, found the Android.Fakebank.B malware app in October 2013. The app replaces banking apps on a user’s device with fraudulent versions, which helps a hacker to track and […]

Turkey blocks WikiLeaks after mass e-mail leak

The Turkish government has blocked access to the WikiLeaks Web site in the country after the whistle-blower organisation released nearly 300 000 e-mails from president Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP). The country’s Internet watchdog, TIB, said an “administrative measure” had been taken against the Web site “after technical analysis and legal […]

Judge Blocks NSA Spying and Sets an Important Precedent

Judge Blocks NSA Spying and Sets an Important Precedent

A FEDERAL JUDGE has ordered an immediate halt to the NSA’s controversial phone records collection program, ruling that the program violates the Constitution. US District Judge Richard Leon’s decision to end the collection is a victory for the plaintiffs in the case and for civil liberties groups who have been asserting that the program was unconstitutional since it was first exposed by Edward Snowden in 2013. But while the ruling is important in principle for what it says about the legality of the program, its practical importance is minimal since the ruling only applies to the two plaintiffs who brought suit against the NSA—Larry Klayman, a conservative legal activist, and hisBUSINESS. Even that victory is minor since the NSA’s collection program is already set to end on November 29. The ruling is significant anyway, however, because it’s so rare that a judge ever enjoins the NSA from spying. This decision could set a precedent for other cases, according to David Greene with the Electronic Frontier Foundation. “In effect, it only requires them to stop doing very little of what they do,” says Greene, senior staff attorney and civil liberties director for the Electronic Frontier Foundation. But the opinion is very […]

Acer’s Little Modular PC Magnetically Snaps Together Like Lego Blocks

Acer’s Mini Modular PC Has Lego-Like Blocks That Snap Together

Acer just announced at the press conference, the Revo Build Mini PC, a little modular desktop computer that is made at home. It is a set of PC parts that are stackable and magnetically snap together like Lego blocks, making the swapping of the modular computer’s components and sections quick and easy. After the build-it-yourself pieces are assembled, the pieces create a fully-functional mini desktop.

The Revo Build Mini PC is little less than 5 inches square with an Intel Celeron or Pentium processor along with integrated graphics. It comes with 8GB of RAM and 32GB of solid state storage. I/O devices are located at the unit’s back and sides that includes three USB 3.0, HDMI-out, DisplayPort, Ethernet, SD card slot, and an audio jack.

However, the important port is on the top, which is a little magnetic connector to attach “blocks,” or rectangular black boxes containing other components. The hard drive block (500GB or 1TB) with a USB 3.0 port on the back, a graphics card block and a wireless charger block allows you to rest your phone on top of your PC for charging.

According to Acer, the mini PC will come with a “voice block”, a speaker, microphone, and a “projector block”. Other add-ons will include extra power, storage, and graphics. In addition, a “Wireless Power Bank” will also keep the mini PC functioning without an electrical outlet. Stacking the blocks is extremely easy, as they clip magnetically to the base unit or to each other.

Acer says the Revo Build Mini PC is coming to Europe, the Middle East, and Africa in October first for around $225. However, Acer America said the PC will be coming to the U.S. as well. The company said “U.S. prices and availability will be announced closer to launch.” It will come to China in December starting at $315.

Have a look at the demonstration of the Acer Revo Build at IFA 2015:

ClearLock Blocks Your Distracting Apps For A While

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Android: Your phone would be a walking distraction machine if it were capable of walking. For the times you need to focus, ClearLock can help by blocking your most distracting apps for a set duration. When you first use ClearLock, you’ll need to choose which apps you want to block. You can then set a duration for how long you want to block those distractions. Once it’s set, ClearLock will block any attempt to launch them. You won’t even be able to modify ClearLock’s own settings. The only way to circumvent the block is to reboot your phone entirely. While any distraction-blocking app is only as useful as the limits of your own self-control, ClearLock helps by making it extremely difficult to get distracted. A single notification can sidetrack you, but you’re unlikely to force restart your phone just because Facebook let you know that someone liked your picture.

SMB Cyber Defense: The Essential Building Blocks to Protect Infrastructure

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Cyber criminals are becoming far more sophisticated as technology evolves and new and better tools become available. Another disturbing trend is that attacks are increasingly more targeted and aimed specifically at smaller organizations. In fact, the threat landscape changes and evolves at such an alarming rate it has become increasingly difficult for SMBs without a dedicated IT staff to stay ahead of the threat curve. It is an unfortunate coincidence that the mindset of many such companies is helping these cyber criminals do their jobs. Some SMBs believe that they are too small for hackers or data thieves to bother with. Others play the odds, assuming that it can never happen to them. Still others are convinced that a single layer of protection–a firewall, for example–will prevent an attack. History shows that all of these are dangerous misconceptions. Hartford Steam Boiler (HSB) found more than half of all SMBs have been hacked at some point, and nearly three-quarters weren’t able to restore all the lost data. These small companies often handle large volumes of personally identifiable information that can be very valuable or destructive if it falls into the wrong hands. Therefore, it is crucial for SMBs to take a […]
