Caramava Adware


Caramava Adware

I just got a call from a customer who was getting this annoying ads whenever he was trying to window shop for something online. I remotely connected to his computer and saw the Caramava adware in action. 

Every page that he would go to, he would get a Caramava ad pop up which would link to other products and when he tried to close it would just open up another pop-up which would link to a malicious site.

The Caramava adware would also load up on google search pages linking to malicious ads.

What is Caramava?

Caramava is an adware plugin distributed maliciously. They get paid to redirect you to sites other than the ones you are actually looking to go to.

Heartbleed Bug, Major Online Security concern


Security experts warn there is little Internet users can do to protect themselves from the recently uncovered 'Heartbleed' bug that exposes data to hackers, at least not until vulnerable websites upgrade their software.

Heartbleed affects encryption technology designed to protect online accounts for email, instant messaging and e-commerce.

Millions of passwords, credit card numbers and other personal information may be at risk as a result of a major breakdown in Internet security revealed earlier this week.

The damage caused by the "Heartbleed" bug is currently unknown. The security hole exists on a vast number of the Internet's Web servers and went undetected for more than two years. While it's conceivable that the flaw was never discovered by hackers, it's nearly impossible to tell.

There isn't much that people can do to protect themselves until the affected websites implement a fix.

Here are answers to some common questions about Heartbleed and how you can protect yourself:

About Heartbleed and why is it a big deal?

Heartbleed affects the encryption technology designed to protect online accounts for email, instant messaging and e-commerce. It was discovered by a team of researchers from the Finnish security firm Codenomicon, along with a Google Inc. researcher who was working separately.
It's unclear whether any information has been stolen as a result of Heartbleed, but security experts are particularly worried about the bug because it went undetected for more than two years.

How does Heartbleed work?

Heartbleed creates an opening in SSL/TLS, an encryption technology marked by the small, closed padlock and "https:" on Web browsers to show that traffic is secure. The flaw makes it possible to snoop on Internet traffic even if the padlock is closed. Interlopers can also grab the keys for deciphering encrypted data without the website owners knowing the theft occurred. The problem affects only the variant of SSL/TLS known as OpenSSL, but that happens to be one of the most common on the Internet.

So, if the problem has been identified, it's been fixed and I have nothing to worry about. Right?

It depends on the website. A fixed version of OpenSSL has been released, but it's up to the individual website administrators to put it into place. Yahoo Inc., which has more than 800 million users around the world, said Tuesday that most of its popular services — including sports, finance and Tumblr — had been fixed, but work was still being done on other products that it didn't identify.

So what can I do to protect myself?

Ultimately, you'll need to change your passwords, but that won't do any good until the sites you use adopt the fix. It's also up to the Internet services affected by the bug to let users know of the potential risks and encourage them to change their passwords.

You can also install a plugin available for Google Chrome, called ChromeBleed

I plan to file my income taxes online. Is that safe considering how much personal information is involved?

The IRS released a statement on Wednesday saying that it's not affected by the bug or aware of any related security flaws. It advised taxpayers to continue filing their returns as they normally would in advance of the April 15 deadline.

Upgrade Windows XP to Windows 7

upgrade xp to 7, install windows 7 on windows xp computer.

After 12 years, support for Windows XP ended on April 8, 2014. There will be no more security updates or technical support for the Windows XP operating system. It is very important that customers and partners migrate to a modern operating system, like Windows 7.


It means you should take action. After April 8, 2014, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or technical support for Windows XP. Security updates patch vulnerabilities that may be exploited by malware and help keep users and their data safer. PCs running Windows XP after April 8, 2014, should not be considered to be protected, and it is important that you migrate to a current supported operating system, for example Windows 7.

With Microsoft ending support to Windows XP, home users of Windows XP Desktops and Laptops, have 3 choices.

1) Continue to use the Windows XP computer as is, and take the risk of being susceptible to infections.
There are hackers out there that would be looking at taking advantage of the vulnerabilities in XP since it wont be plugged anymore by Microsoft.

2) Buy a new Windows 8 computer.
Many people do not like Windows 8 and could be left with no option but to buy a new computer with Windows 8 on it.

3) Install Windows 7 on your XP computer.

Today we are going to be talking in depth about Option 3, Upgrade XP to 7.

To upgrade XP to 7, first and foremost you need to check your computer's processor, it could either be a 32-bit, which it is most likely to be, or it could be a 64-bit processor. Either ways, the processor should have a processing speed of 1 gigahertz (GHz) or more.

The second most important criteria to upgrade from XP to 7, would be the memory (RAM) on your computer. That has to be a minimum of 1 GB RAM for 32-bit processors, or a minimum of 2 GB RAM for 64-bit processors.

The third most important criteria to upgrade from XP to 7, would be the Hard Drive capacity on your computer. It is recommended that you have a minimum of 64 GB hard drive space for installation of Windows 7 and basic usage thereafter.

How to find out the above information?
Click on Start
Right click on My Computer
Select Properties
It will pop-up a window with information on Processor and RAM
For hard drive space, click on my computer and right click on C drive and select properties, that should show you the total hard drive capacity.

You could also run the Microsoft Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor

upgrade xp to 7, install windows 7 on windows xp computer.


Once it is established that your computer is compatible to be upgraded from XP to 7, the next step is to figure out if you have important data like pictures, documents, music, etc, that you might want to save on a external hard drive, or online bakups like GDrive, OneDrive, etc.

Other than important information being backed up, you might also want to check on the programs that you might need, for example, MS Office, Outlook, Quicken, etc. These programs would either have installation disks with product codes or you could download them from your online account. Other than program installation files, you might also have program files like data files, which might also need to be backed up.

Once you are sure that all the information and programs you might need are secured for the upgrade from XP to 7, then you are ready to begin the Windows 7 installation.

There are a couple of options for the upgrade from XP to 7.
1) Do a clean format installation (completely wipe hard drive and install Windows 7)
2) Do a parallel installation (install Windows 7 on the same drive as Windows XP, which would automatically saves files into a Windows Old folder in Windows 7)
3) Do a multi-boot installation (wherein, you can log into Windows 7 as well as Windows XP)

If you need professional assistance to upgrade from XP to 7 Call Roy on (360) 244-4302 or email roy@serenityglobalsolutions.com for a Free Consultation and a No Obligation Quote.

What does the process need and involve
1) Pre Installation (backup, securing important information, OS migration analysis)
2) Windows 7 Operating system (USB Device 8gb or more)
3) Installation process
4) Post Installation updates and installations.

Approximate time would be between 6-12 hours, and approximate cost all inclusive of the above $150-$210, and also comes with a 90-day service.

It would save you the expense of having to buy a new computer which would have Windows 8, which again you might not like, so as long as your computers hardware is compatible and is in a good condition it is advised to upgrade from XP to 7.

Cryptolocker Virus - Beware of what you are clicking on!!!

The Cryptolocker Virus ransomware has been spreading its tentacles across homes and businesses. As per latest reports 1 in 30 have been hit by CryptoLocker Virus and 40% pay the ransom. Most advise not paying the ransom, as there is no guarantee of your data being decrypted, and also you are making your computer vulnerable to further attacks.

Precautions:-

Backup all your important data online on trusted sites like OneDrive - Microsoft, GDrive - Google, DropBox. 

If your computer does get infected by the virus, it cannot reach your backed up data on those secure servers.

Do not click on unknown links in emails

Do not click on unknown attachments in emails

Most emails sent by the cryptlolocker virus, would say that you have a FedEx or UPS parcel for you to collect, and that the details are in the attachment.

As of now once the cryptlolocker virus infects your computer, and encryots your data there is no known way to decrypt it except by taking a chance and paying the virus a ransom, which is not recommended.

Step 2) Do not click on unknown emails, attachments or links
