Attorney General DeWine Offers Five Tips to Avoid Scams While Shopping Online

As consumers shop online during Cyber Monday and throughout the holiday season, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine is encouraging them to protect their personal information and avoid scams online. “It’s a busy time of year, but it’s important not to let your guard down when it comes to identity theft and fraud prevention,” Attorney General DeWine said. “We encourage people to check out the websites they’re using before entering payment information, to be careful about the type of payment they use when shopping online, and to watch for signs of a scam.” The Monday after Thanksgiving, known as Cyber Monday, is considered one of the biggest online shopping days of the year, and according to survey results from the National Retail Federation, almost half of holiday shopping (browsing and buying) will occur online this year. To avoid scams while shopping online, Attorney General DeWine offers consumers the following recommendations: Install updates on your devices before shopping. Installing updates on your phone, tablet, computer, or other electronic devices can add new security patches and critical files, so make sure your apps, anti-virus software, operating systems, and other important programs are up to date before entering payment information. Remember to download or […]

INDIEGOGO PROJECT OFFERS DNA EDITING FOR THE HOME

INDIEGOGO PROJECT OFFERS DNA EDITING FOR THE HOME

CRISPR is the new darling of the genetics world, because it allows you to easily edit DNA. It is far more effective than previous techniques, being both precise and relatively easy to use. According to this IndieGoGo project, it is coming to your home lab soon. Genetic researchers love Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats (CRISPR) because it allows you to very precisely edit a DNA strand. Using a protein called CAS9, CRISPR can find a very specific sequence in a DNA sequence and cut it. It occurs naturally in cells as part of the immune system: by finding and remembering parts of virus DNA, a cell can recognize and attack it when infected. For the genetics researcher, this allows them to insert new DNA sequences at specific points in the genes of any living cell. The IndieGoGo project is set up by Dr Josiah Zayner, who works as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the NASA Ames Research Center. In his spare time, he runs a site called The ODIN (or the Open Discovery Institute) that helps genetic researchers collate and share their work. The IndieGoGo project is an offshoot of that, and for $130, it is offering everything you need to edit the DNA of bacteria […]

T-Mobile promo offers four lines with 10 gigs of data each for $120/mo

T-Mobile’s rise in recent years has been thanks to the disruptive nature of its business model. Various plans and offers, including the ‘Un-Carrier’ initiative, have seen T-Mo gather a strong army of apparently loyal users. Indeed, the last we heard, the firm led by John Legere was outdoing AT&T, Sprint and Verizon in terms of subscriber growth. To keep users interested in signing up, T-Mobile is reintroducing its ’10 Gigs for All’ promotion, which offers four lines with 10 GB of data apiece for $30 each per month.

Sprint responds to T-Mobile’s trade-in promotion, offers the iPhone 6s for as little as $1 per month

While Verizon and AT&T are dueling out for the title of largest telecom operator in the US by subscriber count, Sprint and T-Mobile are currently engaged in a gloves-off battle for the third position. Unwilling to let T-Mobile claim a firm grip of the podium spot through its latest iPhone trade-in promotion, Sprint has recently announced a similar deal, basically offering a free upgrade from the iPhone 6 to the iPhone 6s.

T-Mobile lets you have the 16GB iPhone 6s for as little as $5 per month through its Jump! On Demand lease program if you trade in an iPhone 6. Sprint’s new promotional …

Microsoft’s Bing for Android offers its own contextual search feature right now

You might remember the Google Now on Tap feature that is coming with Android Marshmallow (still feels funny to type that). With this feature, you don’t have to leave the page you’re on to get more information from Google Now. For example, let’s say that you open an email on Inbox from your pal Joey who wants to take you to a restaurant you’ve never heard of. A long press on the home button will activate Google Now and you will see a card related to the eatery. The feature takes advantage of Google’s Knowledge Graph that helps connect people, places and things.

Bing’s Android app has just …

Centier Bank offers identity theft assistance

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

SOUTH BEND — When Mary Johnson asked how many present had experienced identity theft, people seemed uncertain how to respond. But once the U.S. postal inspector explained that theft includes any incident in which personal information is leaked like in the Target or Anthem data breaches, nearly everyone’s hand went up. She wasn’t surprised. For more than an hour, she and Toi Houston, an assistant U.S. attorney, talked about the latest scams and ways people can protect themselves in a presentation this week at the South Bend Police Department. They used specific examples and cases to show how easy it is for personal information to spread to the wrong sources. The presentation was enlightening and beneficial, said Pam Mathews, of South Bend, who was present. “More so, because they gave us strategic ways to place barriers against identity theft.” Mathews planned to go home, review her online presence and remove some information from her Facebook page. She talked about other suggestions she liked including shredding all mail that contains personal data; carefully reading bank statements and inspecting her credit report regularly; and safeguarding Social Security numbers by writing only the last four digits on medical or other forms that don’t […]

IRS Offers Tax Guidance On Free Identity Theft Protection Services

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

There’s no question that identity theft is a problem in the United States. A 2015 study released by Javelin Strategy & Research found that there were 12.7 million victims of identity theft in the U.S. 2014. That works out to a new identity fraud victim every two seconds. Identity theft has topped the list of consumer complaints made to the Federal Trade Commission for the last 15 years. And, of course, identity theft has claimed the top spot on the Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) Dirty Dozen list for several years running. It should be no surprise, then, that businesses and other organizations have ramped up their efforts to keep personal information secure, including offering complimentary identity protection services to customers and employees. This includes credit reporting and monitoring services – the same kinds of services that IRS offered to affected taxpayers earlier this year after taxpayer accounts were improperly accessed using the “Get Transcript” app. These services cost money. Services can range from one time fees to monthly fees upwards of $30 per month. According to Consumer Reports, about 50 million U.S. consumers spent $3.5 billion in 2010 on various identity protection products, a number that has likely grown over […]

OnePlus offers new build of OxygenOS to protect OnePlus One users from Stagefright

Smartphone manufacturers and carriers have been rushing to send out software updates to repair the Stagefright exploit. Stagefright uses a malicious MMS to take control of parts of your phone, allowing your personal data to be stolen. More specifically, the exploit uses code found in the Android multimedia library that has been around since the days of Froyo. It is estimated that 95% of active Android handsets are vulnerable. That number has been slowly declining as more and more phones are being updated with a patch that prevents the Stagefright exploit from taking over.

Today, OnePlus …
