Unplug Your Webcams | SUPER Giveaway

“Big Brother” isn’t the only one watching you. “Uncle Nasty” is out there prowling the Internet too!

No LED / No Warning” Trojans, that switch on your webcam by stealth, were once a closely guarded secret…”

Folks, that first sentence is a link to an article I think you should read.
And then show it to your friends and family.

“Some things you just can’t predict. I thought I was through with contests, and now, ‘lo and behold!, I have a Grand Prize Contest, and I am pleased as punch to run it! Today’s Grand Prize retails for $200, and features software I have endorsed from Day One.”

Today’s free download: Friend and fellow blogger tech Rick Robinette posted this yesterday. HAMSTER – A High End Video Converter for FREE

Myself, I just started using HAMSTER and I must say it is one of the best, easy to use, video converters I have experienced.

Rick is one of those whose opinions are “take it to the bank”, IMHO, so check it out. If you haven’t visited his site before, you’re in for a treat – it is one of my daily reads.

** SUPER Software License Giveaway Drawing **

To help celebrate SUPERAntiSpyware’s recent inclusion in VirusTotal’s premier file analyzing service, the good folks there at SUPERAntiSpyware (known in the biz as “SAS”) have generously donated some Professional Edition licenses to me – “lifetime” licenses no less – to award to my readers.

SUPERAntiSpyware is a program for combating spyware and Internet threats. Today’s Grand Prize retails for $200, and features software I have endorsed from Day One.”

  1. Hey Paul, thanks for this article, re: Bill’s, a necessary read.

    I use and enjoy my Web Cams, never thought of anyone else having possession of them, spying on me…

    As you guys keep telling us, “do not become too relaxed, or trusting of “where we are going” on the internet.”

    While on my computer, it’s feeling like physically walking down the highway, having to watch out for traffic, or crossing the street even at a cross walk, it’s not safe.

    • Gaia,
      It is quite true that the Internet has become a rather unsafe place to visit, particularly to the unwary, uninformed and unprotected. Because of this fact, Internet Safety is my main topic “theme”: I try to educate and inform and provide the How To’s for protecting yourself and your computer from the Evil Doers who are plaguing our modern technology.

      I have compiled the basics into a “Top 10 List”. See, Top 10 Things You Should Do.

      I also highly recommend using a sandboxed web browser to surf the ‘net, and my reco for that is Sandboxie. To see my review/How To, click here.
