Anonymous einflussreicher als Zuckerberg

Anonymous einflussreicher als Zuckerberg | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Das renommierte Time Magazine wählte die anonyme Hacker-Gruppierung zu den 100 einflussreichsten Personen der Welt.

 

In der «Würdigung» dazu heisst es: «Vereint, wenn überhaupt, durch einen Sinn für schockierenden Humor und die Verachtung von Autoritäten, plündert und spielt dieses führerlose Internetkollektiv in den elektronischen Netzwerken von sich ständig verändernden Feindbildern».

Emsisoft Malware Blog - Anti-Malware, Mamutu, Online Armor, Malware

Emsisoft Malware Blog - Anti-Malware, Mamutu, Online Armor, Malware | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Live from the Emsisoft Lab....

 

A few weeks ago our colleagues over at BleepingComputer approached us asking for help with a recent malware outbreak that specifically targets Windows servers. Several companies as well as individuals found their servers being locked by a malware that claims to originate from the “Anti Cyber Crime Department of Federal Internet Security Agency” or short “ACCDFISA”.

 

Of course such an institution does not exist and even if it did, it surely wouldn’t ask the owner of the server to submit a certain dollar amount using PaySafeCard or MoneyPak codes. The affected servers fell prey to a new malware family that is currently on the loose.

 

The ACCDFISA malware family belongs to a malware category called “ransomware”. Ransomware is a special kind of malware that takes a system and its data hostage in an attempt to extort money from its owner in exchange for returning control back to him.

 

What makes the ACCDFISA family special is the unorthodox way in which systems get infected as well as how various third party tools are used to accomplish the malware family’s goals.

Content Curators Are The New Superheros Of The Web

Content Curators Are The New Superheros Of The Web | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

"Yesterday, 250 million photos were uploaded to Facebook, 864,000 hours of video were uploaded to YouTube, and 294 billion emails were sent. No wonder content curation is one of the most important jobs of our digital age.

(...)

Which means it's time to enlist the web's secret power: humans."

 

I just love the way Steve Rosenbaum talks about curators, don't you?

 

He coined the term when we interviewed him at SxSWi and Steve definitely knows what he's talking about, being the author of Curation Nation.

 

He gives interesting guidelines to all would-be curators in this post: even if you're already one, you might find them useful. And if you're not a curator yet: "All you need is a web browser and a cape. The rest is up to you."

So What Has Changed Since I Started Blogging and Tweeting?

So What Has Changed Since I Started Blogging and Tweeting? | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

April 15, 2012
By Dave Meister

 

The first PHSprincipalBlog (changed to Director 4/1/2009) post was on 9/18/2007.  (332 posts overall) I have been using Twitter for 4 years, 4 month...

 

We still have a lot of work to do, but I feel more strongly than ever before that we are willing to meet the challenges to make our learning environments relevant and engaging. We have the unique opportunity to design and build a new school complex that will be both flexible and transparent and able to accommodate learning for today’s world and the challenges of tomorrow.


I AM SO GLAD I STARTED TO BLOG AND TWEET!

er Kurzmitteilungsdienst Twitter könnte nach Erkenntnissen britischer Wissenschaftler als Seismometer für gesellschaftliche Stimmungen dienen.

 

Die Forscher haben in einer in Lyon vorgestellten Studie herausgefunden, dass sich im Oktober 2010 und im Sommer 2011 jeweils eine Welle aus Wut und Ärger unter den britischen Twitterern verbreitete.

 

Parallel dazu verkündete die Regierung im Oktober 2010 geplante Einsparungen, im Sommer erschütterten dann Gewalt und Unruhen mehrere Städte in Großbritannien.

Twitter Basics for Students

Twitter Basics for Students | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Have you heard of Twitter? Do you like to tweet? Most likely you’ve utilized social networking websites such as Facebook. So why would you consider using Twitter?

 

To enhance and increase connections with classmates – and potentially your instructors, as you may not find it easy to network with students on other sites and it is very unlikely that your instructors will appear on your friends list. What if I told you that this can help you develop an academic network and support system?

 

===> By the end of this post I believe you will want to give it a try and more importantly, you’ll likely find it can be an effective personal learning network. <===
