Google Has Been Recording You. Here's How to Delete the Files | #GoogleVoice

Google Has Been Recording You. Here's How to Delete the Files | #GoogleVoice | Free Tutorials in EN, FR, DE | Scoop.it
You probably know that Google keeps track of everything you type into its search bar, just like it scans your email to "analyze your content."


But what you may not realize is that Google has also been recording you, as the Guardian points out, though not necessarily in the NSA-manner Edward Snowden talked about recently.

 

If you've used Google's voice-control features (normally prompted after saying "OK Google" or hitting a microphone icon), everything you've spoken to the service has been recorded, ostensibly to give you a record like your regular search history and perhaps improve Google's voice recognition. Fortunately, Google does allow you to listen to yourself and clear that history.

How to keep your Linux PC safe from exploits | #Tutorials #CyberSecurity 

How to keep your Linux PC safe from exploits | #Tutorials #CyberSecurity  | Free Tutorials in EN, FR, DE | Scoop.it

As with any big piece of software, Linux is complex, and difficult for outsiders to comprehend. That’s why it’s not terribly shocking that a 9-year-old Linux kernel vulnerability, known as Dirty COW, wasn’t patched until just a few days ago on October 20.

First off, here’s a quick reminder of what Linux is: Linux is a kernel, just one piece of software in the GNU/Linux OS, with the GNU suite of tools making up the majority of the base operating system. That said, the kernel is one of the keys to the OS, allowing the software to interact with hardware. Linux’s importance to servers and infrastructure means that a lot of eyes are constantly looking at the kernel. Some of those eyes belong to employees at companies like IBM or Red Hat who are paid to work on it full-time. That’s pretty impressive for a piece of software that’s freely given away.

Still, bugs within the kernel can be overlooked. And some of them, in the right conditions, can be real doosies, as Dirty COW demonstrated.

Here are a few ways you can protect your Linux PC from future exploits.

Erase data from partitions or from an entire hard disk | killdisk.pdf | #Tutorials

Active@ KillDisk for Windows is a powerful utility that will: · Wipe confidential data from unused space on your hard drive · Erase data from partitions or from an entire hard disk · Destroy data permanently Wiping the logical drive's deleted data does not delete existing files and folders. It processes all unoccupied drive space so that data recovery of previously deleted files becomes impossible. Installed applications and existing data are not touched by this process. Active@ KillDisk wipes unused data residue from file slack space, unused sectors, and unused space in MTF records or root records. When you erase data with Active@ KillDisk for Windows, you destroy data permanently, conforming to any one of six international standards or your own custom settings. Wiping drive space or erasing data can take a long time, so perform these operations when you are prepared to wait. For example, these operations may be run overnight.
