The BADD

Irene: Wet, Deadly And Expensive As Cleanup Begins

The death toll from the storm rose to 35 as residents of mid-Atlantic and Northeast states began assessing the damage wrought by the destructive storm. Millions were still without power, and torrential floodwaters threatened towns in Vermont and elsewhere…

Our hearts goes out to the families of those lost in this terrible storm, and with all the reports coming in we’re hearing that it could have been much, much worse!

and…

The UGLY

We received an email request/question today see below, and it’s one of the most discussed topic’s in security when it comes to personal online security and PC and mobile or smartphone safety…

Hi. I’ve received an email from ‘PayPal’ stating that they cannot reply to my request – whatever that was – and that I should log in to contact them. I never made a request therefore I am ‘scared’ to log in incase my login is being monitored. My point is that PayPal do not provide a means to contact them which doesn’t involve logging in. Even phoning you have to log in first to obtain a pin number. THat approach has got to be wrong and plays in to the ‘harvesters’ hands. Any ideas how I can urgently contact them…

as… Your Authority for Online Security in the next 5 years and beyond in this niche and field I will tell you this Phishing & email fraud is one of the most scariest aspects of the internet security world and the exploding broadband channel, that is why it makes my top 10 list of security issues of 2006 – 2011

and… it will only be UGLY if you interact or click the links contained in a phishing email or then ignore our advice when it comes to email fraud and phishing scams!! and my answer to the above great question is too read this article: 10 Signs that you are about to Become a Victim of Phishing also, to see more of OSA Top 10′s below:
