Ok, why should you be careful when at work and using a company computer?

According to the CompTIA A+ training I am presently doing on Lynda.com, 51% of all serious malware attacks that successfully target companies – come from internal network users. The largest percentage of these attacks occur from non-admin employed workers going to non work related websites.

Once the malware is on the non admin users computer the hacker with a simple Privilege Escalation attack payload, will spread said payload across your enterprise and start harvesting things like your bank account login and password, and that of everybody else you work with!

That is if they or you use a work computer to access any sensitive account where a¬†malicious monetary gain can be made. ūüėČ

Furthermore, in an extreme scenario the company you work for could be forced to go out of business, and there is a good chance you will become infamous and never be able to find another job doing what you do now.

So…

Please surf the web safely where ever you use any internet connected device.

Please always install all security updates, never rely on any updates being automatically installed on any device or any software anywhere, to do so is simply irresponsible.

A blown up phone, tablet, laptop or computer from an update is much easier to recover from than losing all your money and then having to fight to get it back, all the while doing the same to others you work with whom have worked so hard for what they have.

Amazon Echo dot

So, I broke down and bought one of these Amazon Echo dots. And love it! It’s like having a personal assistant that I don’t have to pay. It has a small speaker built in, but you can plug it into any sound system you can plug your phone into, or connect to a Bluetooth speaker using the Alexa app on your phone.

Having Amazon prime is almost a must have but you can get by with just a regular Amazon account.



https://www.reddit.com/r/Alexa_Skills/ is a great place to find out what the Echo dot can do by talking to it.

Site update

I am going to make major changes to this website soon. It’s going to be where I put things Im working on, selling, or helping other people sell.

You will see just about anything that I think others might be interested in posted here. Im still into writing music and playing it. But, thats not all that will be here.

Such as:
