Data is a critical asset for companies today. Without access to their data, companies may not be able to provide their customers with the level of service desired. Poor customer service, loss of sales or team collaboration problems are all examples of what can happen when information is not available to teams within a company.

Each of these issues contribute to lack of efficiency and potentially, loss of income if customers cannot wait for a data outage to be corrected.

If your computer is not responsive enough for the use that you want it for, but you don’t want to spend money to buy a new one. We can upgrade its hard drive to a faster SSD drive.

 

Upgrade to an SSD

 

 

Advantages

  • Access Time: An SSD has access speeds of 35 to 100 micro-seconds, which is nearly 100 times faster. This faster access speed means programs can run more quickly, which is very significant, especially for programs that access large amounts of data often like your operating system.

A recently uncovered malware attack targeting Facebook users has claimed nearly 10,000 victims in just under two days, with countries in South America and Europe among the hardest hit.

Between 24 and 27 June, thousands of Facebook users were targeted by phishing messages purporting to come from a “friend”, claiming to have mentioned the targeted users on Facebook. However, the message had in fact been initiated by attackers instigating a two-stage attack.

The malware was uncovered by a security researcher at Kaspersky Lab, pointing to a two-stage malware that includes a Trojan.

Several security researchers have discovered a new type of malware that jumps onto the ransomware bandwagon, encrypting victims' files and then demanding a payment of half a bitcoin for the key. Named "Locky," the malware depends on a rather low-tech installation method to take root in a user's system: it arrives courtesy of a malicious macro in a Word document.

Security researchers Kevin Beaumont and Lawrence Abrams each wrote an analysis of Locky on Tuesday, detailing how it installs itself and its components. The carrier document arrives in an e-mail that claims to be delivering an invoice (with a subject line that includes an apparently random invoice number starting with the letter J). When the document is opened, if Office macros are turned on in Word, then the malware installation begins. If not, the victim sees blocks of garbled text in the Word document below the text, "Enable macro if the data encoding is incorrect"—and then infects the system if the user follows that instruction.
