With Hurricane season upon us, and Hurricane Florence heading towards the East Coast, think to yourself: when is the last time I backed-up my files on my computer to make sure they are safe? In a survey conducted by BackBlaze  it was concluded that 24% of computer owners have never backed-up their files and data! This is discerning because […]

Over 75,000 instances of the “.WCRY” file extension detected by Avast, and 45,000 instances reported by Kaspersky Lab Friday as businesses are reeling from what is believed to be the largest cyber-attack in history. The attack has been dubbed “WannaCry” Ransomware, but can also be referred to as WanaCryptor, WannaCrypt, or Wana Decrypt0r.
Hackers known as The Shadow Brokers, stole exploit tools from the NSA (National Security Agency) and leaked them in April. EternalBlue […]
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from blurred vision, loss of balance, poor coordination, slurred speech, tremors, numbness, extreme fatigue, problems with memory and concentration, paralysis, blindness and more. MS is different for everyone, and that makes it all the more challenging to solve.

The DoJ announced that the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) had received roughly 7,750 public complaints regarding ransomware since 2005, with an estimated $57.6 million in damages. The costs come from ransoms paid in addition to the associated cost of lost data.
Cyber threats are continuing to escalate through the use of Ransomware virus invasions. The sophistication of the programs take viruses to a new level as entire computers and networks have their critical files encrypted and then held ‘ransom’ […]
Credit card identity theft has been on the increase over the last number of years; and it seems that as quickly as credit card companies try to adjust for security, the hackers figure out a way to overcome the protocols set in place. However, this is all about to change with the implementation of the new ‘chip credit cards’, placing a broad spectrum layer of security for credit cards. While over 120 million Americans have already received their new […]

You’ve got to respect the endurance of the hard disk drive data storage device, first introduced by IBM in 1953 for commercial use before becoming the crucial technology for accommodating ever-expanding data stores accumulating on commercial and personal computer. Despite its imperfections (“click of death,c” anyone?) the HDD and its ability to quickly store and retrieve digital information using rapidly rotating disks (platters) has defined storage technology for more than 50 years.
Today, storage technology has taken to the cloud, […]
From Toronto to North Florida, the winter of 2014 is turning out to be particularly rough, and the spike in winter storm-related power outages pose a heightened risk of data loss to unprotected computers.
With no end in sight to the ice and snow blanketing most of the northeast, if you haven’t already taken measures to protect your home and business computers from power surges and outages, now is the time.
Too many people assume that when power to their computer […]
