IT Accidents are caused by Employees!

I read through TechRepublic’s article on on cybersecurity risk factors and employees remain the top threat within the enterprise. Uninformed or careless employees are one of the top causes of cybersecurity incidents the report reads. Read more here…

10 Years of the iPhone! Wow!

32-iphone@2x I can’t believe it’s been 10 years but I know without the phone, the world would be a different place. Even with problems with the early phones, millions upon millions purchased one up. That was even when no 3rd-Party Apps were allowed?!?!?

Can you imagine that now? Anyway, you can read more from the TechRadar Post Here. 

Have a great day out there

New Petya Malware Causing problems today, June 27th, 2017!

I just received and email from Malware Bytes one of my best technical tools to find and destroy viruses. As of this morning, tens of thousands of computers have been hit.

“A new strain of ransomware, a Petya-esque variant being called Petya/NotPetya, is  spreading across the globe today, impacting tens of thousands of computers. More powerful, professional, and dangerous than last month’s WanaCrypt0r attack, the Petya-esque ransomware uses the same EternalBlue exploit to target vulnerabilities in Microsoft’s operating system. However, unlike WanaCrypt0r, this ransomware instructs you to reboot your computer and then locks up your entire system. Long story short: if you get this infection, you’re hosed.” – Malwarebytes.org

Update your Microsoft Windows software immediately.

Microsoft released a patch for this vulnerability in March. A patch is accessible here. We Don’t open suspicious emails folks! Office documents may be the cause of a lot of this via spam.

 

Stay Safe out There!
