Last year, CryptoLocker ransomware [hit the headlines](http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/microsoft-windows/viruses-spyware-and-other-nasties/news/470427/cryptolocker-250k-infections-in-100-days-nets-300000-or-does-it) after infecting hundreds of thousands of computers and encrypting the data, and backups of that data to any connected device, with the promise of decryption on payment of a fee. This kind of IT extortion is profitable for the bad guys as it targets the people who are least likely to be in a position to do anything but pay; the people who are most likely to get infected are the same folk who are least likely to have an offsite backup or know how to get help with such a problem. This …

Ok so I have a Toshiba A105 s4284 that I just bought from a friend that bought it in january and it was working fine until just recently, all of a sudden the screen just goes completly black when I'm in the middle of something, I mean the computer doesn't shut off at all its just the screen. I've looked around on all the other forums trying to see if anyone else was having the same problem i was and I couldn't find anything. It doesn't just fade, it goes completly black, I've tried the fn + F5 key and …

After reading all the hype about the random ware virus I installed BufferZone Pro 64 bit. Worked o.K the first day but after booting today all my visual styles in windows 7 home premium disappeared ( aero glass etc) to make the opened windows really look poor. After uninstalling, everything went back to normal. Hmm, any ideas as I like the protection of virtualisation?

Hey guys, Just a thought. Not that I myself do this: Many people these days still use old versions of Norton, McAfee, and other such antivirus programs. Most of them are from 2002-2006. My question is, do these companies stop supporting their older virus programs at the end of a year, or when a new version comes out? Are updates still released or is there some sort of cutoff date? (Although I don't think it is...) Is it safe to protect yourself with, say, Norton 2005 or 2006 if you fully update it? I'm curious because a lot of people …

CryptoWall 4.0 the newest ransomware to date is been spread by Angler Exploit Kits. A new drive-by download campaign is to blame for this attack. Heimdal was the first to discover the malware nearly one month ago. It's also more stealthier than previous versions and also a lot stronger. This time the message is different and more filenames had been added to the list. Also users have to fork out $700 for the decryption key which makes it a hefty price to pay. Firstly the Pony Information Stealer scrapes the computer of usernames and passwords by scouring the victims computer. …

I downloaded AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition on a computer that runs Windows 98 and uses a slow dial-up connection. When I went to install AVG an "Expired Download" box appeared, advising me to download the latest version. I ignored this and installed my AVG download 7.5.503. Everything went fine. But I noticed a red exclamation mark on the AVG screen and I ran a "Check For Updates." I thought it was nearly finished as it reached 100 percent but the Time Left line began counting upward. Confused by this, I cancelled the process. I wonder if I should try to …

The UK's National Crime Agency (NCA) has said that it has dealt a "major blow to dark web markets." In a [statement](http://www.nationalcrimeagency.gov.uk/news/news-listings/483-international-law-enforcement-deals-major-blow-to-dark-web-markets) issued on the 7th November the NCA says that a coordinated operation between law enforcement agencies in Europe and the US has "targeted market places for illegal commodities on the dark web" and as part of this six people in the UK were arrested. Amongst those arrested in strikes closely coordinated with international partners in the US were the suspected administrators of Silk Road 2.0, the Tor accessed drugs and firearms market place. The NCA statement also claims …

Although it took eBay itself an absolute age to disclose that a serious breach had taken place, and then [completely screwed up the process of ensuring users change their passwords](http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/microsoft-windows/viruses-spyware-and-other-nasties/news/479152/more-ebay-security-stupidity-exposed), this should come as no real surprise. Happygeeks' Law states: the larger the corporate, the longer it takes to admit anything and the bigger the chance it will handle it badly. What is surprising is that it has taken so long for the stolen database of user credentials to go up for sale on the dark market. If you consider that the breach itself happened a couple of months ago, …

The news that JPMorgan Chase & Co, which is the largest of the US banks with a reach that extends to half of all American households, has been breached will surprise nobody. At least not in the sense that this is old news, with a disclosure of the event happening in August. The actual breach was discovered by the bank back in July, and is thought to have been active for at least a month prior to that. What is surprising, however, is that a financial organisation of such a size and reputation should fall victim to such a breach …

My van was built 15 years ago by Mazda in Japan as a multi-purpose 'people carrier' vehicle with the unlikely name of a Bongo. It has survived the years well, and I have now converted it into a camper van. Another 15 year old that travelled across the globe has not survived the passage time, and we can be thankful for that because I'm talking about the Love Bug. No, not Herbie the talking VW Beetle from those candy-sweet Disney films but rather a computer worm that spread like wildfire in May 2000. Also known as 'ILOVEYOU' thanks to the …

Adobe Flash users have been under attack from cybercriminals again, this time courtesy of [a zero day exploit kit by the name of Angler](http://malware.dontneedcoffee.com/2015/01/unpatched-vulnerability-0day-in-flash.html). The exploit kit has been readily available on the dark market, and hits vulnerabilities to be found in Flash Players up to 15.0.0.223, as well as the latest release. There is some uncertainty as to who is at risk from this kit, with some sources claiming Windows 8.1 and Google Chrome users are safe, while others tell me any version of Internet Explorer used with any version of Windows is at risk if Adobe Flash player …

I do not notice a malware called Great Find in the system until the computer begins to slow down. Internet Explorer, Chrome and Safari get rather small ads on the right top corner. Key words are underlined at times. My friend helped me with steps in [Chrome Help Forum](https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/6086368?hl=en-GB) and [this article](http://www.fastremovevirus.com/how-to-get-rid-of-ads-by-great-find.html#remove-IE). But Safari is still performaning weirdly. kaspersky scans a file and delete it already. Any good idea? Thanks in advance! Window 8.1 64bit Intel Celeron processor 4GB RAM

I have Windows XP (which I usually LOVE) on my HP Pavilion a820n desktop computer. I recently had to do a reinstall of XP, due to removal of an anti-virus software which (apparently) corrupted my computer. After doing a clean full reinstall of XP, some of my drivers are missing (most notably, my Audio driver). I went to the HP website, but their software could not scan my computer (apparently not XP friendly). So, I tried to do a manual installation of the driver - not an Update - the actual driver. It will not install. I don't know what …

Hello, My computer has been slow and having problems for the last week or so. A message popped up the other day that my son said something about my internet provider found a threat or something weird. He closed out of the internet quickly, so I never saw it, but we don't have anything virus protection or anything downloaded from our internet provider. Now, the poor thing is so loud like trying to push along and everytime we're on the internet, the hour glass is next to the mouse. Also, the we keep having to unplug the router and wireless …

A couple of decades ago, in another life, I wrote a little script which would capture keystrokes and then store that data within the 'white space' of an image file. It was pretty crude, but it was also twenty years ago and to be honest nobody was really looking for stuff which was effectively hidden in plain sight that way. That way being the use of something called steganography, from the Greek steganos which means covered and graphie which means writing; so literally covered writing. I used it to good effect during my period as an explorer of networks belonging …
