WARNING! July 9 DNS Changer Malware Alert!

The news stories are covering this all over the place, so we thought it would be good for us to get you the details as well.

Basically, before tomorrow – July 9th, 2012 – be sure to go to http://www.dns-ok.us/ to make sure you aren’t infected.  Very few computers have been infected, but it can’t hurt to check yours out – and do it before tomorrow, as the malware keeps you from going to the internet! It is a pretty busy site, so you may need to wait a bit.  To make it short – if the background turns green, you are safe.  If it turns red you will need to take a few more steps to clean up your system.

If you’re not a do-it yourselfer, there are quite a few good companies that will do this for you. http://www.dcwg.org/fix/
You can read all about it at http://www.abcactionnews.com – and if you waited too long to check out the site, you can always pick up the phone and give us a call… not that you can read this after tonight at midnight and you have been infected…
Happy computing!

Flashfake (back) Mac OS X botnet

A quick post for our Mac users out there – there is a nasty trojan on the net trying to get into your system!  According to www.securelist.com it is being distributed via infected websites as a Java applet that pretends to be an update for the Adobe Flash Player.

Once installed, the trojan adds entries to the host’s file to hijack users visiting various Google sites (e.g., Google.com.tw, Google.com.tl, etc.) to an IP address in Netherlands. Trojans are infections that can expose computers to control by hackers.  A botnet – in laymans terms – is what happens when many computers are infected and the power from all those computers can be used as one.  This particular bot has already affected over 650,000 Macs – and that is no small potatoes!

The server at the IP address displays a fake webpage designed to appear similar to the legitimate Google site.

Apple has developed a tool to detect and remove the Flashback trojan according to the BBC news, technology.

For a long time, Macs have not been vulnerable to PC malware – which remains true! However – now they are vulnerable to Mac malware.  Instructions on how to confirm if your Mac has been infected can be found on the security firm F-Secure’s website.

Good luck, Mac users – if you need any help, give us a call!

Windows 8!

Maybe we should be titled this: Mousing is getting a makeover.

Microsoft has introduced Windows 8 into the testing phase. What this means to you is that “touch” is entering the mainstream PC marketplace.

If you have a smartphone, iPad or Android tablet, you already know what’s coming. There’s a convergence of phone, tablet and desktop “look and feel” going on. Apple, Microsoft, Android, the contest rages on.  Within the next 12-18 months, “touch” will be the standard.

Yes there are ergonomic challenges here but let’s let them fight it out.   If you’re still running your business on Windows XP you’re going to hear footsteps coming your way and there’s no stopping progress, maybe not today but soon you’ll have to get on board.  So think about the flicks, points and zooms you do with your smartphone and you’ll step easily into the latest Operating System from Microsoft.

Underneath the hood the engine of Windows 7 remains and that’s pretty solid.

Go boldly forth – and happy computing!
