If you've heard about the CCleaner hack – you may be worried your system is at risk. A lot of misleading information has gone around, while the hack was very limited in scope and Avast/Pirform have taken very aggressive steps to mitigate the impact. With the Command/Control server offline – the compromise is no longer functional and only affected those running 32-bit Windows. Still worried your system might have been compromised – our IT Xperts can help. Also, our My ITXpert support customers get automatic updates and proactive threat response and received updates to CCleaner as soon as they were available. Learn more at http://myitxpert.biz

  • Reshared post from Bitdefender:

    You should reset your Apple ID password ASAP and if you used the same email/password elsewhere – change it there too! Even if these hackers haven't gotten as many passwords as they say – they clearly obtained some and they're offering verifiable account info to prove it.

    Original Post from Bitdefender:

    #FridayFact: you should always have strong, hard-to-crack passwords for your accounts. And you should always ensure that your password is unique, and not being used on any other sites.

  • There is a very clever GMail phishing attack going on right now that make it VERY hard to tell you're account is about to be compromised. See this well written post for more details. If you have not enabled two factor authentication on your email accounts (and hopefully others like Facebook & Twitter), you should do so ASAP – that can prevent this type of attack from succeeding. In the near future Chrome will make it clearer when a site is 'Secure' by showing 'Secure' in green next to the lock to also help avoid this type of scam. Concerned about your security online?
