Hackers Are Hijacking Phone Numbers: How To Protect Yourself

Hackers Are Hijacking Phone Numbers And Breaking Into Email, Bank Accounts: How To Protect Yourself If you have a cell phone and use Gmail, Yahoo Mail, iCloud, Dropbox, Evernote, Facebook, Twitter and the websites of banks and countless other web services, you are at risk of being hacked, having your money stolen, having sensitive information exposed and being blackmailed. With just your phone number and a little bit of what’s called “social engineering” in which a hacker doesn’t necessarily need technical knowledge but just to convince a customer service rep that they are you, a maliciously intentioned person can break into all the above accounts and more. And they have been doing just that, stealing money, blackmailing people with sensitive information, taking over social media and embarrassing their targets, or getting access to private documents such as tax returns and passport numbers. It starts by getting some readily available information about […]

Kick-Start Your 2017: 5 Social Strategy

  Kick-Start Your 2017: 5 Research-Backed Techniques to Develop Your Social Strategy 2016 has undoubtedly been a remarkable year for social media. Below are just some highlights: The total number of active social media users reached 2.307 billion. Facebook reached more than 1.79 billion monthly active users. Social media had a significant influence on the recently concluded U.S. presidential election, with 35 percent of people aged 18 through 29 citing it as the most helpful source of information. One thing is clear: Social media can no longer be ignored. It is making and destroying nations, it is accelerating the spread of leaks and classified information and it has created more revolutions than we can count. The important question, however, is: How is social media influencing businesses? Apparently, not as much as it should be–46 percent of business-to-business marketers report that they are not sure whether any social channels have generated revenue […]

Bitcoin: Digital Money is Here. Are You?

Why Bitcoin Could Be More Important Than The Internet Bitcoin is a relatively new form of currency that is just beginning to hit the mainstream, but many people still don’t understand why they should make an effort to use it. Bitcoin was one of the biggest leaps in technology since the inception of the Internet, hailing the new era of digital money, disrupting industries and financial institutions as well as introducing a new social paradigm where transparency and trust are the default value. How does this work? Bitcoin has no central monetary authority. Instead, it is underpinned by a peer-to-peer computer network made up of its users’ machines, akin to the networks that underpin BitTorrent, a file-sharing system, and Skype, audio, video and chat service. Bitcoins are mathematically generated as the computers in this network execute difficult number-crunching tasks; a procedure is known as Bitcoin “mining.” The mathematics of the Bitcoin system were […]

The Darknet: What is it and How to access it?

By Brad Chacos Senior Editor, PCWorld There’s a place lurking beneath the Internet you use every day. It’s a hidden underbelly, home to both rogues and political activists, and accessed only with the help of specially designed anonymizing software. It’s a secretive place, where Arab Spring dissidents can hide their digital tracks, a place where whistleblowers can reach out safely to scoop-seeking media outlets. And, yes, it’s also a dangerous place, where a lot of illicit, underground nastiness occurs. There, you’ll find a society that lurks intentionally in the blind spots of search engines. Some call it the Darknet. All call it hard to reach—though it’s hardly impregnable, given last week’s news of security vulnerabilities, as well as site takedowns following the arrest of an alleged pornographer. Like a demilitarized zone or a lawless land, it’s not a place most people visit—nor should they. But by the time you’re done […]

How To Start A Business With No Money

How To Start A Business With No Money Ryan Westwood , CONTRIBUTOR I cover the challenges of starting, running and expanding a business “I’ve got a great idea for a business. But I don’t have any money to start it up.” Sometimes you have to get into the trenches and make it happen. “I’ve got a great idea for a business. But I don’t have any money to start it up.” This phrase is something I’ve heard again and again . . . and again—from students, friends, and sometimes even colleagues. While it’s true that a generous credit line, a team of investors, or an uncle with deep pockets can make starting a company easier, not having money is no excuse. If you are confident that you have a product or service people want, don’t allow the lack of capital to deter you from your business goals. By pivoting, grinding […]
