  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 Tech Support Scams
    In a recent twist, scam artists are using the phone to try to break into your computer. They call, claiming to be computer techs associated with well-known companies like Microsoft. They say that they’ve detected viruses or other malware on your computer to trick you into giving them remote access or paying for software you don’t need.
    These scammers take advantage of your reasonable concerns about viruses and other threats. They know that computer users have heard time and again that it’s important to install security software. But the purpose behind their elaborate scheme isn’t to protect your computer; it’s to make money.

    Anonymous hacktivists appear to have successfully blasted the Formula 1 website off the net, with a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack.

    The internet attack against www.formula1.com comes just ahead of Bahrain's highly controversial hosting of the Formula 1 Grand Prix this weekend, which is planned to take place despite violent protests in the country.

    Anon demand a lot of things, do they really believe that DDOSing a website will force a government to release prisoners and completely change their policing etc ?

    Well the problem is even though they provide an information, the way they do it isn't legal and only result of members were arrested.

    Just a bunch of would-be famous...useless attacks for useless causes with useless results... they should go return playing at Counter-strike.

    I miss the "true hacker" period where penetrating a network was a game of skills and cleverness, not as now where you can use many tools made by others.

    Denial-of-service (DDoS) attack .....are so lame...... a few hours downtime doesn't mean anything for the webmaster .... And I'm saying webmaster because the actual F1 staff don't even care about it:)
    The only ones who got affected by this attack where the fans ,who temporarily couldn't access the site.
    @Roti ... Ferrari all the way!:D
