Kim points out a critical Facebook flaw puts users at risk of phishing attacks

I don’t often quote or link to Kim Komando since she has so much screen spam, stalkers and predators on her web site. But this might be one of those times when the cure is better than the disease.

Kim says :

Here is a scenario that you need to watch out for. You’re logged into a social media site and click on a link that opens in a new window. Once you’re finished looking at the new page, you go back to the original window and the site says that you have been logged out.

You will be asked to log back in and once you do, you’ve been phished. The site that you just logged into is a malicious site.

This gives the cybercriminals your ID and password for the site you just logged out of.

ICANN : it ain’t over ’til it’s over

User Group Network UGN Safenetting ICANN report You’ve heard the old adage about leading a horse to water? I was astounded at some of the reactions to last week’s ICANN report from our supposedly intelligent readership. I was getting terse, arrogant comments ranging from complete denial to “we’ll see.” Interestingly, none of the responders were there. So it’s a scary indication of today’s arrogant, connected society. But maybe I really am just crying the sky is falling. At the end of the day, I guess I’ll have to agree to ‘wait and see’ because the deal went through.

ICANN : Chances are you’ll get the wrong story – except money & corruption

User Group Network UGN Safenetting ICANN report Money and corruption. That seems to be the order of the day in today’s world. Obama’s handoff of the internet has become part of the political battleground, as a pawn between the Trump and Clinton campaigns. Except if you can ignore the media, you might just understand it’s not about politics, and it’s not about freedom of speech no matter what they tell you. It’s about a (just barely) functioning internet the way it is and the prospects of removing oversight from the corrupted ICANN. The biggest problem with the internet today is the lack of responsibility. Now, they want to remove the last vestige of that.
