Reason Why Adobe Flash is No Longer Safe For Your PC (Uninstall)

I will advise you to uninstall Adobe Flash on your PC as soon as possible but if you are too in love with it and don't want breakup or heartbreak, pls update it at least. This information is coming to you because there are security threats being discovered by Kaspersky that reveals exploit known as FinSpy or FinFisher targeted at computers with Adobe Flash player.

Apart from the malware threats, do you know that Adobe flash is a memory-and-battery-sucking monster that is riddled with holes and years-old unpatched code which makes it a fertile ground for hackers? Okay now you know.

So Kaspersky Labs has revealed that there has been a recent vulnerability discovered in Adobe’s Flash platform that allows hackers to plant malware. According to Kaspersky, the exploit is known as FinSpy or FinFisher and is actually a commercial product that is sold to countries and law enforcement agencies to conduct surveillance. The attacker, BlackOasis, is using the FinSpy malware through Microsoft Word documents to attack victim machines.

Now the most worrying part is the report claims that it has identified BlackOasis targets in countries like Russia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Nigeria, Libya, Jordan, Tunisia, Saudi Arabia, Iran, the Netherlands, Bahrain, United Kingdom, and Angola. So users in these regions should be extremely careful to avoid stories that touches.

Meanwhile, in their quest to curb this issue, Adobe has released a security update that is expected to fix the problem, but it wouldn't be a bad idea to uninstall Flash given that companies like Mozilla and Google have announced their plans to stop supporting flash in their browser and even Adobe has confirmed that they will be ending support for Flash in 2020.

How to Protect Your Company Against Online Threats

How to Protect Your Company Against Online Threats

As the number of online threats shows no sign of going down, it's essential to know how to protect ourselves from them. It's no secret that home users aren't the only ones affected by this problem. Companies face the same issue. It doesn't even matter if they're small, medium or big businesses. Hackers have never and won't ever discriminate when they want to wreak havoc. From the minute a computer, tablet or smartphone is infected with malware, sensitive data can and will be damaged. More often than not, the owner of any of these gadgets has to pay a ransom. That is, if they want to see their important data back where it belongs.

Having a counterattack plan for your business is of great importance. Only so can you be certain that nothing valuable will get lost should a cyber-attack happen. Contrary to popular belief, small companies are more likely to get targeted by hackers than medium or big ones. Why? Simple: they think nothing will ever happen to them since they're not as popular as larger businesses. That is why they seldom, if ever, invest in IT security. This is the worst thing you, as a manager, can do. Relying on strong security software is the difference between success and failure. You don't want to shut the doors down on your business, now, do you? If you continue to not invest in excellent IT security, that's exactly what will happen.
Cyber-attacks have, in the past couple of years, done damage to a large number of home users and companies. By the looks of it, hackers won't stop doing harmful things too soon.

Luckily for device owners, there are lots of methods which work very well against malware creators. Today we'll tell you how to protect your company against online threats!

Use a VPN: A Virtual Private Network, or VPN in short, should be among your first three options in the fight against cyber attacks. VPNs are known for hiding IP addresses and traffic, as well as encrypting a connection. Before you choose a Virtual Private Network, though, think of your company's needs. You could, for instance, require faster connection speeds or zero traffic logs. In each of these cases, a different VPN would be needed. Choose well and you'll no longer have to worry about online threats.

Encrypt data: We previously mentioned "encrypting a connection" via VPNs. Hackers all around the world love to look around for company-held data lying around unprotected. This can range from social security numbers belonging to employees to their home address and so much more. To avoid all that, businesses must enable their devices' full-disk encryption tools if they aren't already turned on. These tools keep crucial information very well-protected against malware attacks. As soon as they're enabled, an employee should also do this: set their PC to log out automatically after 5-10 minutes of not being used.

Educate your employees on the benefits of IT security: Security needs to be a part of every business's culture. No matter if you work in a small, medium or large company, you must take every necessary precaution to ensure the safety of both you and your business. Hackers generally steal data with the unwilling help of employees. Apps and email servers are two of the ways malware can affect a device. If, for example, you notice something suspicious about one of your emails, tell your IT department about it.It's strongly recommended that you send your employees emails frequently, detailing types of cyber-attacks and how to keep them from happening. Better yet: prevent the people who work for you from using your business's Wi-Fi to open their personal emails.

Secure your computer's hardware: Computer systems aren't the only routes used by a hacker to do damage. Server room doors must be kept locked and closed at all times. The majority of desktops and laptops use Kensington lock ports. These exist so that your work device is tied up to your desk. To make things even more secure, use cloud computing software.

Install an efficient security solution: Protecting your company from online dangers can also be done via strong security software. Malicious threats won't be gone if you, as a business, only use your PC's firewall. Security solutions are more than recommended for companies. The market is very well stocked with these tools, so you don't have to worry about choosing one that fits your needs. You can find a list of the best ones here.Many businesses have been targeted by cyber-attacks throughout the years. This has caused a lot of them to shut down. If you don't want that to happen to your own company, read our tips on how to protect it against online threats!

Startimes Adds Pay Per Day, Week and Month Subscription Plans

Startimes Adds Pay Per Day, Week and Month Subscription Plans

We have gradually started seeing the positive effects of serious competition in the pay TV services in Nigeria. First it was MultiChoice who introduced GOtv Max which airs La liga matches on Super Sports Select 4 and now. They also reduced the price of their decoder and now startimes has responded by introducing a new favorable system of decoder subscriptions similar to what TStv promised to offer.
Startimes pay-per-day
Startimes has just added new subscription options - pay per day, pay per week and pay per month that allows customers watch channels with as low as N60 per day. Remember, the new competitor known as TStv are offering pay per view services which I believe, prompted Startimes to take this action.

Meanwhile, we are still expecting more favorable offers from DSTV but they should act fast before they start loosing customers because going by people's comments online, it's clear they are ready to dump them for TStv if their promises are fulfilled.

READ: GOtv Reduces Price of Decoder

Now that StarTimes has introduced a daily subscription for a little price of just N60 and N300 for weekly subscription which lets you watch over 40 channels, what do you think DSTV will do in response because I know they won't fold hands even though they are not a match for Startimes in terms of quality, Channels, Features and so on.

Well, startimes revealed this new development earlier today on their official twitter channels and many Nigerians are happy about it as you can see from the comments on the screenshot. The new subscription model will be effective from November 1st 2017.

READ: 4 Ways To Recharge Your Startimes Decoder By Yourself Easily

However, I won't hesitate to remind us that as at the time of this report, Startimes is yet to get the rights to air live Premier League, La Liga and Champions League matches but if you are a fan of Italian League, French League 1, German Bundesliga and the Chinese League, startimes decoder is for you.

So what do you think about this new payment methods and the competition building up in the pay TV network in Nigeria?
iOS 11.0.3 is Causing Poor performance and Battery Issues

iOS 11.0.3 is Causing Poor performance and Battery Issues

The latest Apple OS update that came as iOS 11.0.3 is reportedly filled with bugs that results to poor performance and poorer battery life, among other issues. IPhone and iPad users who upgraded to the iOS 11.0.3 are bitterly complaining about these issues on their devices. Some of these problems started right from iOS 11, with Apple rushing out updates (iOS 11.0.1, iOS 11.0.2, and now iOS 11.0.3). It appears that iOS11 has been bug-ridden all the way.

The most common of them all is battery "draining faster" but Wandera, a security firm, took time to investigate why iOS 11 users are running on empty. Their finding was that the average iDevice running iOS 11 lasts about 96 minutes which is about 2 hrs. This is too poor because some Android devices can last up to 24 hrs on a single charge. One of the bragging rights of Android fanboys.

So I have some of the other issues that users are complaining about after upgrading to iOS 11.0.3.

✔️ stability
✔️ Touch ID
✔️ Bluetooth.
✔️ Privacy
✔️ Calendar app not working
✔️ Homescreen time display disappears intermittently
✔️ home button not working at intervals
✔️ Frozen phone
✔️ Unresponsive display

A user complaining about battery drain had this to say:

My battery life sucks ever since the upgrade. Before the upgrade, I charged my iPad twice, sometimes 3 times a week. Now it needs to be charged everyday. Also, half the time I put it on the charger, it doesn’t charge. I rue the day I upgraded to iOS 11.
via

Similarly, a privacy bug which that allows unauthorized people to access private was photos on iPhones running iOS 11.0.3 was also detected.

The above screenshot is a tweet from a user who had updated to the current version in hopes of a fix.

Meanwhile, Apple has been alerted via their Twitter handle and let's hope things will be fixed as soon as possible.
