  6. Windows XP End Of Support

    After 12 years, support for Windows XP has ended on April 8, 2014. There will be no more security updates or technical support for the Windows XP operating system. Without critical Windows XP security updates, your PC may become vulnerable to harmful viruses, spyware, and other malicious software which can steal or damage your business data and information. Many software vendors will no longer support their products running on Windows XP as they are unable to receive Windows XP updates. Most PC hardware manufacturers will stop supporting Windows XP on existing and new hardware.

  7. Tip of the Day Always keep an eye on what you click and download, including music, movies, files, browser plug-ins or add-ons
    Be wary of pop-up windows that ask you to download software or that offer to fix your computer. Often these pop-ups will claim that your computer has been infected and that their download can fix it – don’t believe them. Close the window and make sure you don’t click inside the pop-up window. Do not open files of unknown types, or if you see unfamiliar browser prompts or warnings asking you to open a file. Sometimes malware may prevent you from leaving a page if you land on it, for example by repeatedly opening a download prompt. If this happens, use your computer’s task manager or activity monitor to close your browser.

    'I'm not done yet. Why I do this? Since guys in rails issues ingored me and my issue I got spare time to test it on the first website i had in mind. github.
    That was pretty funny. Firstly, I could write post from 1234 year or 4321.
    Then, I could make a post pretending i am DHH. That was funny too.

    Then I could wipe any post in any project. That wasn't that funny but pretty dangereous. It got more curious.
    Today I can pull/commit/push in any repository on github. Jack pot.

    I will write big post regards this topic - examples(not only github is vulnerable this way - I found a lots of rails apps that are waiting for my hack! Yeah, it is only start). stay tuned.
    P.S. GH sorry, I was bored.'

    How Homakov hacked GitHub and the line of code that could have prevented it : https://gist.github.com/1978249

    QUOTE:
    '@homakov’s explot on GitHub was simple and straightforward. Calling it an attack makes it sound malicious whereas the truth was that GitHub bolted its front door but left the hinges on quick release. Homakov released the hinges, walked in and shouted to anyone who would listen that they had a problem.

    He was right. The Rails defaults are vulnerable and there’s no better illustration of this than when when one of the best Rails teams in the world is severely compromised.' ..
