Sometimes you need to get into a computer without knowing the password. Perhaps you've forgotten yours, or perhaps you're up to no good. Either way, it's actually pretty easy to do, provided your victim hasn't taken the necessary precautions. Click one of the links below to find out how to do it on either a Windows PC or a Mac, and how to prevent others from doing the same to you.
Le gouvernement britannique, dans le cadre de son initiative National Cyber Security Strategy, s'apprête à imposer des mesures de cyber-sécurité aux entreprises privées désireuses de faire affaire avec le secteur public.
Show of hands: How many of you have sat in front of a computer and typed your name into a web browser? Don’t be shy. You can admit it. With so much access in so many places, who could blame you for wanting to know where and in what context your name appears online?
The practice has been dubbed “ego surfing,” but as this Backgroundcheck.org infographic posted to online tech site MakeUseOf shows us, searching for one’s name on the web is also a lesson in self preservation — one students and teachers should heed if they want to keep their reputations, and their online identities, intact. Do yourself a solid and take five minutes to complete the Google Yourself Challenge. What you find about yourself might surprise you.
The usual complaints about modern-era Big Brothers tend to be targeted at initiatives to place more surveillance cameras in various locations. Then of course there is the monitoring of our activities on the Internet by governments, ISPs and organizations with their own agendas.
Today, however, something completely different is happening, and surprisingly few red flags have been raised. We, the collective, are providing the raw surveillance data. We, not some dystopian state, are becoming the ones who monitor.
Hackers linked to China appear to have stolen security-clearance records with sensitive data about millions of American military and intelligence personnel.
What’s particularly stunning about this development is how quickly it grew into something so severe. Last week, officials estimated that the personal data of 4 million current and former federal employees had been compromised. Then that figure ballooned to as many as 14 million.
D’après de nouvelles révélations de Snowden, les espions américains et anglais (NSA et GCHQ) ont travaillé conjointement pour pirater le fabricant de SIM Gemalto et dérober des clés de chiffrement afin ainsi de surveiller les communications cellulaires.
It's easy to get hacked. And yes, it can happen to you. Follow this advice from actual hackers, and you'll be a lot safer online (summary below, read article for more).
1. Turn off your phone's Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Hackers are religious about this. Keeping these features "on" all the time makes it easy for strangers to slip into your phone.
2. Use two-step authentication. Nowadays, a single password isn't enough. They get exposed all the time.
3. Create a smart password strategy. For the select few websites with your most sensitive information (email, bank), create some long and unique passphrases, like +hisPl@tinumDr@gonBreathesF1re.
4. Use HTTPS on every website. Install the HTTPS Everywhere tool developed by the pro-privacy Electronic Frontier Foundation. It encrypts all the information your browser is sending between your computer and websites.
5. Bulk up your home Wi-Fi. Setting up Wi-Fi at home is a tour through the circles of hell. But these two steps are important.
6. Don't hide your home Wi-Fi. Your home router asks: "Hide the SSID?" If you say yes, then your devices are forced to "actively scan" for the home network you're trying to hide. Sure, they'll connect. But as a result, your device "actively scans" for networks all the time.
7. Think twice before buying an Internet-connected device. Do you really need a "smart" fridge or oven?
- Les entreprises qui exploitent des systèmes informatiques industriels n’ont « pas le choix » : elles doivent vérifier l’isolation de ces réseaux vis-à-vis d’Internet et si celle-ci n’est pas parfaite, les déconnecter purement et simplement.
- Pour les éditeurs de solutions industrielles, il est « presque criminel » de ne pas respecter des règles élémentaires de sécurité dans leurs produits (placer des mots de passe par défaut en dur, par exemple).
Girls Around Me is an app you should download to teach the people you care about that privacy issues are real, that social networks like Facebook and Foursquare expose you and the ones you love, and that if you do not know exactly how much you are sharing, you are as easily preyed upon as if you were naked. I can think of no better way to get a person to realize that they should understand their Facebook privacy settings then pulling out this app.
