How To Browse The Web Safe From Viruses For Free

Wed, Nov 30, 2011

Today, I’m going to walk you through the process of being able to browse the web in complete safety. The title of this post explicitly mentions “viruses”, but I’m using this as a more well-known moniker for the term “malware”. Malware is a more generic term which encompasses viruses, spyware, trojans, etc.

What I mean by “complete safety”, is that you do not have to worry about malware infecting your computer. It does not mean you are safe from being tricked into giving your banking passwords to a site that is only pretending to be your bank.

NSA Recommendations For RSA SecurID Users After Cyber Intrusion

Sun, Apr 24, 2011

On March 17, 2011, RSA announced that it had been the victim of a cyber intrusion, and as a result, information related to its SecurID product – a two-factor authentication device – had been compromised. According to RSA, the compromise does not lead to a direct attack on SecurID, but it does decrease its effectiveness.

In reaction to the RSA cyber intrusion, The National Security Agency (NSA) released Information Assurance Advisory No. IAA-003-2011: Recommended Actions for SecurID Users in Response to RSA Cyber Intrusion. This advisory expands on the information previously released by NSA via Information Assurance Alert No. IAR-001-2011: Mitigations for the RSA Cyber Intrusion, and provides additional guidance on:

· The use of SecurID hard tokens and soft tokens
· Fortifying the security profile of SecurID’s authentication factors
· Measures to harden SecurID’s Authentication Manager
