RE: Elgg

Same. It was not production ready at that point. Also, we worked with custom data sets (aka profiles had several types and require lots of customization). Elgg stores everything in 4 or so tables, and filtering would be SLOW. We have tried its competitors as well. Boonex (I strongly discourage from ...

RE: vivodiamonds.com

I see other problem. I went through your purchase process. It is not over secure connection. This is bad - consider moving whole cart to https:// . While payments might be handled securely by paypal (for example), you collect emails and other information insecurely. Also, I have not checked your pay...

RE: mypchealth.co.uk

I would still advice getting original images and doing own tests. I know at least several sites that photoshop images that land in the internet as "real" fake-antiviruses. These images are later distributed further. Re-rating site. <quote user="g7w"> Many forum tpoics are cataloged on WOT's Wiki: ht...

Typically, Fake AV is end result of infection, aka a way to make money from infected PC. Mac's were hit by malware before, for example koobface had version targeting mac's in the past.

RE: XP antivirus 2011

I suggest your friend to try this code first: 1147-175591-6550, it will stop majority of XP Anti-virus popups. Then he should scan with couple anti-malware tools and antiviruses. Preferably in safe mode with networking. I know from experience that AVG might leave PC messed up after that (lots of com...

RE: Google Chrome is Even Better

Actually, you can turn of the tracking in google chrome so no (or little) data is transmitted to google servers. Chromes security is more similar to Opera rather than firefox, and while it has security holes, there are far less than in firefox. Chrome have their own inline PDF viewer, which helps ag...

RE: firefox = better then ie

Both IE and Firefox have enough security holes and are targeted by malware distributors. I personally prefer google chrome due to their sandboxing (and using separate process for each TAB), though I use Firefox for couple reasons as well. Opera is relatively safe as well, especially due to small mar...

RE: Gmail Phish?

To some extent you are correct - long, complex passwords are not the easiest to guess. However, every password might (theoretically) be phished, keylogged or even sniffed. Sometimes by such mundane means like looking through someone's shoulder when they are typing it. To some extent, one needs both ...
