Weird Al Yankovic Explains The Internet

23 Jul

Last week Weird Al’ Yankovic Explained the Internet to Fox’s Stuart Varney. I find this interview interesting because Al understands how to adapt his commodity – creating music – to a new business model. Now Mr. Yankovic gets paid to create content for internet channel’s like Yahoo which then drives sales for his music. Al also explains that he will no longer release full length albums anymore because it’s not timely for parodies. What do you think about this interview?

Clickjacking

23 Oct

Have you heard of Clickjacking? A friend of mine recently had it happen to him; don’t let it happen to you.

Clickjacking is when a hacker embeds code in a website, then a user clicks on it, and allows the hacker to take over their browser. Once in control, they can click any link without the knowledge of the browser user. If they can take over your browser when you walk away, imagine the possibilities.

So how do you protect yourself?

  1. First of all download a browser that has higher security features than Internet Explorer; I suggest Mozilla Firefox.
  2. Then download a Mozilla Add-on called “No Script” which will turn off off all suspicious code on websites. It is not easy to browse at first because you have to approve the content your want to see. If you don’t whitelist or approve areas on your screen, you will see nothing.

Is there anything else we can do to prevent Clickjacking?

A Tip to Protect Your Computer

21 Aug

You may not know it, but at this moment your computer is most likely being crawled by Internet bots. What are these software applications doing? They are scanning your machine, dropping snippets of code on to it and watching your surfing habits. Generally these bots are sending information back to numerous companies in an effort to market to you more efficiently. The good news is you can fight back against the bots by installing a couple of free programs that will remove their malware.

I have been running both programs on my machines because they seem to work differently and catch unique items. Note: These programs are not virus protection software; they are programs designed to only remove bots from your machine.

Did you find a bunch of bots after you ran the software?

Spies Like Us

13 Feb

Does your child know what he or she wants to do when they grow up? Astronaut? Police Officer? Teacher?

Codebreaker?

Yes, the National Security Agency, a government organization that originally “didn’t exist” to crack codes and ciphers is looking to your children.

Someday, the current generation of spies and analysts will need to be replaced, so the NSA has put together a site to appeal to kids.

Characters such as Crypto-Cat™ and Decipher Dog™ will show you and your children how much fun it is to figure out puzzles, crack codes, and keep our nation safe.

Internet Safety Day

6 Feb

February 6 is Internet Safety Day, highlighting issues related to children and their experiences online.

Organized by the EU’s Information Society and Media Commissioner Viviane Reding, the day is intended to educate both adults and children. Events are being held in 31 countries, with schools and businesses working together to raise awareness regarding the dangers children face online.

This year, 20 European mobile phone companies have signed an agreement intended to offer greater protection for children using mobile phones.

Why hasn’t this day gotten more press in the United States? Should we be following Europe’s lead on these matters?
