Before I do anything else today, I would like to recommend this read.
“There’s still time to take this bill down. Read, learn, and then let your Congress-Critters know that, once again, We The Internet will not stand for these assaults on our rights.” Read more..
Despite the outbreak of sunshine here, I have to confess that the reading I do – to keep my finger on the pulse of tech – has been quite discouraging. And that has been true for several years now. Just from what landed in my Inbox today, I could post two dozen articles that (I am pretty sure) would discourage you, too. Such as:
“Detection numbers continue to rise for the infamous Conficker worm within enterprises, even though there is a patch available and no new variants have appeared in two years.” (I ask you to think about that. It might change your definition of “IT Professional”..)
Featured News: Russian cyber crime market more organized, lucrative
“Traditional mafia groups are entering the cyber crime scene in Russia, which is leading to more centralization and professionalization — and bigger profits.“
Like, I said, that is just a few headlines.
We live in interesting times.
Your antivirus is up-to-date, and you use good passwords.. right? (And.. not the same one for everything???)
So. Fersher I need some Friday Fun. And I need to get outside and into the sunshine.
