Fero Iris

In the performance aspect, it is fitted with a MTK6737 Quad Core processor, clocked at 1.3 GHz. This is definitely a processor for a low-end smartphone but for the most part, it should be fast enough. 1GB of ram and 8GB on-board storage is what this device is shipping with, which is not that much of a surprise considering the price but you can further expand the storage using a 32GB microSD if you like that extra space on your phone. It is also a dual sim smartphone.

It has an 8MP rear camera and a 2MP front-facing camera that doubles as the Iris scanner. For selfie enthusiast, you might want to look elsewhere for that dream front facing camera but if you’re keen about high level security at an affordable price, then this is for you. Although, we haven’t really tested the Iris scanner to know how accurate it is in recognising your Iris.

2,500mAh is what you get here which may not me very appealing to heavy users but it still gets the job done. you might not want to stray far away from your charger though.

How to Decrypt Files

Cryptowall 4.0 is the latest variant of the feared Cryptowall malware which has spread around the world attacking various computer systems where it basically prevents access to the information until a ransom is paid. The 3.0 version of the malware has caused at least $325 million of damage in the US alone.

The new 4.0 will actually alter the file names for the now encrypted data so that it becomes virtually impossible to tell what is affecting the program. Add to this that all system restore points are deleted and this new threat is now even more dangerous.

It is believed that Russian hackers are behind the Cryptowall because the malware does not affect computers that use a Russian language. In addition, the spam servers that generate the Cryptowall have been located within the Russian border.

So far, the countries that have been affected by the Cryptowall malware include the following countries;

China
France
Germany
India
Italy
Kuwait
Philippines
South Africa
Spain
United States

In essence, the program blocks access to the information stored on computers and servers by encrypting it in a manner that makes it very difficult, if not impossible to remove without the proper encryption key which only the hackers know. Until the ransom is paid to the hackers, the block will stay in place which may cripple the ability of businesses to do their jobs.

In most cases, the hackers select a particular business or corporation that may offer the promise of a great reward and then infect the computer systems. The Cryptowall is quite efficient at sealing up the information that is stored. Because it does not try to destroy, but instead encrypt the information it can slip past most antivirus or antimalware systems.

There are very few techniques that work against the Cryptowall 4.0 simply because of its sophistication to slip by most antivirus and antimalware programs and ability to encrypt information once inside.

About the only sure prevention method is for companies to continually back up their information and store in on the cloud or other platforms that remain hidden from the hackers. In this manner, instead of trying to retrieve the information from the affected computers, the computers themselves are instead wiped clean and then reloaded with the information that was stored in the backup systems. We recommend you to use Google Drive. It is a free service from Google that allows you to store your files online and access them anywhere on the world using the cloud. Google Drive allows you to use 15 gigabytes (15GB) of free storage space.

Using Agile Software Development

  • Higher RSI
    When dealing with multiple projects and do not apply agile methodologies, it is normal to wait for a process to complete before starting with the second. In order to deal with this type of operation of projects, it is necessary to look for how to finalize deliveries as soon as possible, which means an immense risk of cutting functionality or quality. The development with agile methodology reinforces the multiple deliveries which against the client is an operant indicator and in a certain way would represent a working capital. As such, the list of functionalities of the delivery agreement is reinforced and the average implies a focus on developing the functionality that is considered most vital for the project from the very beginning.
  • Agile development increases productivity
    The production of software that works around business needs implies entering multidisciplinary knowledge in simultaneous stages. The agile methodology serves to focus the attention of the parties by discipline in the space that is needed and immediately release the talent so that they can move between work zones. Applying a discrete task system against the people who execute them simplifies the distribution of information delivery and consequently the same sense of control capacity of the same employee which results in an inherent desire to process tasks as simply and quickly as possible.
  • Simplifies the management of process overload
    The teams that work on rules and regulations have to validate their work constantly which represents a double sense of work. Methodologies by iteration simplify the process of delivery versus validation, which also allows changes to be made as the scope of the project progresses.
  • Better productivity profile
    Agile teams are more productive than those that use traditional methods throughout the development cycle. If an agile system is not applied, a “hockey stick” development pattern is presented where most of the work happens in the first stages, and as the teams walk, adjustments are made on the previous work. The reality is that it almost never happens that team pieces end up working together in a coherent way.

Cyber Security and Networked World

Other people see this same world as being quite horrific, and bringing up huge issues in terms of privacy and security, and do not believe it will ever really happen.

The internet of things essentially refers to a process where pretty much every device that we use at home and at work, everything we wear, everything we use will in some way be connected to each other wirelessly.

This process allows manufacturers and governments to collect huge amounts of information about people in a way that has never been foreseen or planned for. This information is now being collectively referred to as big data, and there is a huge industry trying to work out how this information can be used, largely for the benefit of manufacturers and supposedly for the benefit of government planning in transport and urban development.

The reality is that all major manufacturers of virtually every product on the planet are now either putting sensors into their devices, or planning how to, in order to enable the internet of things to happen.

Whilst there are certainly technical difficulties to overcome, a whole range of what are being referred to as internet of things platforms are being developed, which will in the end enable a seamless integration of these devices.

People may doubt that this will happen, will happen quickly or at all. Sadly this is wishful thinking for a number of reasons.

The main reason is that the main beneficiary of the internet of things well in fact be a vast range of businesses and corporations who stand both to slash costs hugely and increase profits significantly at the same time.

That of itself will drive the Internet of things.

This to an extent is already happening in supermarkets, And is a really good example of how this process will work.

All products in supermarkets have a barcode, at the checkout this barcode is swiped against a screen and is added to the shoppers bill.

At the same time, the barcode feeds into the inventory system of the supermarket and sets in motion a process right back to the distribution center, and ultimately the production process itself.

In addition, supermarkets are now widely installing self-service checkout tills that means the individual customer has to swipe the products themselves, thus reducing the need for staff even more.

Whilst there are huge social and libertarian issues involved in all this, the issue of privacy and cyber security is huge, and is likely in many ways to get overlooked in the rush for profit and cost-cutting.

The amount of personal information being processed by all manufacturers of these devices and products is colossal, and all potentially at risk of being hacked or compromised in some type of data breach. This could lead to a massive erosion of trust in a number of systems currently used, and could lead to significant growth of identity fraud and theft for a whole range of individuals.

Virus vs Malware

Most of the time we will say we have a virus in our computer and much like the ones we can get in our bodies, these viruses attack our computer’s hard disk space or central processing unit which makes it very hard to fix.

By definition a computer virus is a malicious software program that replicates itself by modifying other programs and inserting its own code. That is, it gets into your computer and then takes over your programs sometimes leaving them not functioning at all.

Those who release these viruses are using social engineering deceptions to exploit the vulnerabilities that systems have. Sometimes, even if you have a security system on your computer the virus can circumvent it and still infect it. Viruses cost billions of dollars a year in economic damage because the damage they cause is so great. They are targeted for profit or political messages or sabotage. Sometimes the people who create them are just in it for the fun of watching users suffer, and suffer they do.

On the other hand, malware is malicious software, things like ransomware, worms, Trojan horses and spyware. They, thankfully, don’t interfere with the hard disk space or take over control of your computer, although they are still annoying to have and to deal with.

There are many places that deal with removing malware from your computer and even programs you can download that will scan and get rid of them from your system. Now that we know more about these things, security systems have pre-programmed scans that take place at an allotted time to scan the computer and alert you to any problems before they get too big to handle. Using an anti virus program and your security you are in a good place to keep your computer running well. Sure at times it goes slow and sometimes you need professional help and luckily there are those who deal with computers on a daily basis and know what they are doing.

Malware Works

Malware comes in many forms. It can take the shape of spyware, keyloggers, worms or viruses, but they all do the same thing to a computer: they mess with the operating system and gain access to your information, which can lead to identity theft.

Malware started off as an experiment or a big joke but now can garner big money for those criminals who impose it on unsuspecting computer users. They can make money by the forced adware that we have to endure, they can steal our bank codes and passwords to gain access to our accounts and they can track our internet browsing history and spread email spam to everyone in our address book. There is malware everywhere, and we usually download it unintentionally with other programs that we really want on our computer. It piggy backs on with the good stuff and embeds itself into our operating system and there it stays inflicting its wrath until we figure out how to get rid of it.

So how do you get rid of malware? The best cure is preventing it from entering your computer in the first place. This means being ultra careful what files you download from the internet and reading all of the user information before hitting the download button. Another great way to prevent malware is by using a good security system and adding a service like Malwarebytes to your computer that will scan for these viruses each day which makes removal that more effective. Taking advantages of the updates that pop up from trusted sources is also a great way to defend against malware as they up the security and technology for the system itself.

It all else fails, take your computer to your trusted computer repair shop where they will have the know how to rid your computer of the pesky malware that is making your life and your computer miserable.

Bitcoin Ransom

Launches an initial DDoS attack (ranging from a few minutes to a few hours) to prove the hacker is able to compromise the website of the victim.

Demands payment via Bitcoin while suggesting they are actually helping the site by pointing out their vulnerability to DdoS

Threatens more virulent attacks in the future

Threatens a higher ransom as the attacks progress (pay up now or pay more later)

Unprotected sites can be taken down by these attacks. A recent study by Arbor Networks concluded that a vast majority of DD4BCs actual attacks have been UDP Amplification attacks, exploiting vulnerable UDP Protocols such as NTP and SSDP. In the spectrum of cyber-attacks, UDP flooding via botnet is a relatively simple, blunt attack that simply overwhelms a network with unwanted UDP traffic. These attacks are not technically complex and are made easier with rented botnets, booters, and scripts.

The typical pattern for the DD4BC gang is to launch DDoS attacks targeting layer 3 and 4, but if this does not have the desired effect, they will/can move it to layer 7, with various types of loopback attacks with post/get requests. The initial attack typically lies on a scale between 10-20GBps. This is rather massive, but often not even close to the real threat.

If a company fails to meet their requests, and if that company does not migrate this attack through various anti-DDoS services, the group will typically move on after 24 hours of a sustained attack. But you should not count on this pattern to manage your cyber security tactics.

Virus Protection Software for PC

The best security programs are able to keep up with all of the new and rising threats. It’s a race of sorts, so it’s in your best interest to purchase a software solution that includes daily, automatic updates. It should be able to keep up with all of the latest definitions of ransomware, phishing scams, and all types of malware and dangerous files.

Opt for software that is powered by a global 24/7 threat monitoring network. Cyber criminals never, ever seem to stop, so neither should monitoring and protection networks.

Another thing to look for is a program that offers seamless upgrade options. If you’re a regular PC user, you likely won’t need business-level protection. However, the option should still be there for you to purchase additional protection and security tools as your needs grow.

Virus protection software for PC is usually available in various pricing and subscription options. Typically, the most basic version can be purchased for a single computer, whether it’s a PC or Mac. If you also want protection for your smartphone, tablet, laptop, etc. there should be a Premium or Premier Suite available with varying pricing options.

What about free programs? While new versions of Windows do come with built-in security features, including a firewall, they do not offer enough protection for the average user. Free programs usually offer just the bare minimum of protection. This doesn’t mean you have to start spending money on virus protection software for PC, as there are usually free trials available offered by the biggest companies. Read reviews and try one out before deciding whether or not you want to purchase a license for the full version.

If you do a lot of shopping online and pay bills, you’ll definitely need a security suite that offers financial security. There should be a feature that keeps your financial details protected and encrypted.

User-friendliness is another important consideration. If you’re the type who prefers to be hands-on, then the ideal program will offer manual scanning and updating options. If you prefer applications to run quietly in the background, then its processes, including updates, should automate.

Overall, out of all of the cyber protection companies, Norton is perhaps the most popular. It offers virus protection software for PC, Macs, Androids, iOS, etc… Choose Norton Antivirus Basic, Standard, Deluxe, and Premium.
