INFOGRAPHIC: How To Spot A Tech Support Scam

June 24, 2017

Some scammers call and claim to be computer techs associated with well-known companies like Microsoft or Apple. Other scammers send pop-up messages that warn about computer problems. They say they’ve detected viruses or other malware on your computer. They claim to be “tech support” and will ask you to give them remote access to your computer. Eventually, they’ll diagnose a non-existent problem and ask you to pay for unnecessary – or even harmful – services.

If you get an unexpected pop-up, call, spam email or other urgent message about problems with your computer, stop. Don’t click on any links, don’t give control of your computer and don’t send any money.

Tech support scams often start with a pop-up that wants you to call now, or else...  If you get an urgent message like this, don’t click, call, send money or give anyone control of your computer.

Geek Squeak #17-025: A Reasonable In Cost IP Security Camera That Works

June 9, 2017

I recently purchased (approximately 3 mos. ago) the YI Dome, 1080p HD, Pan/Tilt/Zoom, Wireless, IP Security Camera. I ended up calling it my “Catcam”. I typically access the camera, from anywhere, using my smartphone, but can access the camera from my laptop and desktop, as well. I ended up setting the camera up to watch through a window at the front of my house and with the pan/tilt/zoom control I can remotely control the camera to rotate to check on our cat when we are away.  It also has a built in mic, for which my wife talks to the cat (LOL)…  Nice little camera for the money;  and for me, has worked flawlessly.

Geek Squeak #17-020: An Advanced Users’ Malware Killer

June 6, 2017

Curious if any of the folks out there with technical expertise have ever used RogueKiller? I typically go to Malwarebytes AntiMalware; however, I see RogueKiller has pretty darn good reviews.  The main point that jumps out at me is that RogueKiller is for advanced users (see video below)…

Roguekiller is a popular and an effective tool to remove some stubborn malware but be warned; you better know what you’re doing. While a lot of more well-known tools will only scan and delete for you, this tool will show you everything it finds that is a possible problem. You need to know what to remove and what not to remove, or you could delete something you want, or need. Your results may vary, but just use caution and do your homework before removing anything or ask someone who is computer savvy.

WannaCry Ransomware Fact Sheet

May 21, 2017

Homeland Security (ICS-CERT) released a fact sheet this past week about the WannaCry ransomware infections. This fact sheet provides information on how the WannaCry program spreads, what users should do if they have been infected, and how to protect against similar attacks in the future. I have had quite a few computer users at home ask me about WannaCry due to seeing it talked about in the news. The key protection point to Wannacry is to make sure you keep your systems patched.

WannaCry is ransomware that contains a worm component. It attempts to exploit vulnerabilities in the Windows SMBv1 server to remotely compromise systems, encrypt files, and spread to other hosts.  Systems that have installed the MS17-010 patch are not vulnerable to the exploits used. Patches to address the vulnerabilities identified in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS17-010 are available for all versions of Windows from XP onward.
