Re. FYI #911 (Thurs 5/11/2017):

Brave Is a Faster, Safer, Non-Google Web Browser Made for Today’s Internet

Yet another Chromium based browser making great promises, but having in-app payments? Pass. I especially didn't like the way their "engineer" butted into the Comments every time anyone challenged the web standards, payment methods (bitcoin is the only accepted payment method) and the security of this browser. 

Also, the lack of extensions and lack of settings flexibility to allow access to sites which don't work with ad blocking enabled -- all of this is one hot mess at this time, and not eready for use in a production environment. Also mentioned (and defended -- poorly -- by the "Brave Engineer") is their use of Squirrel to spy on users. This is worse than the ads and trackers this browser pretends to eliminate.

I use Google Chrome with ten extensions to remain as free of tracking and page-slowing ads as possible while allowing such clutter only where it is absolutely required. Is this private -- not exactly. Is this good enough -- you betcha!

 

How To Remove The Bedep Malware From XHamster

Other than this article being a thinly veiled ad for Malwarebytes (which is not certified by any independent testing lab), this article is completely wrong.

xHamster does not serve up malware if you don't click on any ads posted there. It's a raunchy site, so I have very little experience with it, but my only contact with the site is under Linux with heavy script-blocking in place. So maybe that's why my Windows (including MSERT -- the stand-alone version of Windows Defender from Microsoft's site -- and Malwarebytes Free) and Linux virus scans have always come up free of detection of Bedep or anything else lately. And yes, I now scan Linux regularly with ClamTK antivirus -- specifically aimed at Linux malware.

 

Malware-laden music player app downloaded by thousands of users found in Google Play Store

With a name like "Super Free Music Player", what could possibly go wrong? (sarcasm) Definition of mass stupidity -- 10,000 maniacs and a rogue app. 

 

How to Record Over-the-Air TV Without a Cable TV Box DVR

Using a Digital Converter Box as the base element in a PVR is risky and inefficient. And it does not get full-HD broadcasts. As a DA Converter Box, it must downgrade the OTA DTV signal in order to make an analog output. (All analog outputs in the consumer arena are SD.) The analog output is designed for use with SDTVs which lacked ATSC tuners. Or with monitors which have no TV tuners at all.

Don't even think about using signal splitters and inline amps with these devices. This degrades the DTV signal further and causes frequent dropouts, more so than weather or electrical interference, both of which plague certain channels even with my outdoor antenna which I use with my TiVo Roamio OTA. And on windy days -- forget about it! Channel 50 (CW and local programming) has a frequency exactly the same as household electricity, so this channel is particularly challenging for any coax cable run. So Supergirl and The Flash must be shunted onto a Cable Company DVR most weeks. 

Technically, my TiVo Roamio OTA is an OTA receiver and recording box. It receives full-HD signals and can record and play them back. It does not stream without a $99.00 add-on (no additional subscription required). There was nearly zero user setup. Much easier than the Home Run or Android TV boxes favored by more hard-core tech enthusiasts. 

But convenience does not come cheap -- it'll take a few years for my $400.00 investment to pay off, and the box already could use a fan replacement (cheap, but technically a bit difficult). BTW, TiVo is now a (device) lifetime subscription and is included in the price of the box.

 

Re. FYI #912 (Fri 5/12/2017):

Find Your Passwords In Firefox (this generally applies with slight variations to all browsers)

I don't store passwords in browsers, as they are easily uncovered if the device falls into the wrong hands. So I have saved passwords marked for cleanup every time I close my browsers.

 

What Type of Linux Desktop or Laptop Should You Buy?

Buying a prebuilt Linux PC is a waste of money. Installation may be a bit tricky, but on the right older hardware (obtainable on eBay or from friends or relatives) Linux runs mostly trouble-free. Even in a dual-boot, as long as you observe the protocols for coexistence, Linux and Windows can play nicely side by side. On my Intel NUC, Ubuntu and Windows 10 don't interfere with each other, and GRUB boots very fast. Total time to fire up one OS or the other is comparable to BIOS booting (no Windows Fast Startup allowed here!) on a pre-UEFI PC. Or maybe a bit faster. And that's with about five screens to click through to get to the login screen of either OS. 

 

How to Back Up and Restore Windows 10 from an Image File

Windows 10 has similar procedures to this tutorial which is about Windows 7. Third party programs may be easier for many users, myself included. Being able to restore from a bootable USB stick and an external drive (even a flash drive, if it's large enough to hold the backup archive) is ahandy option. Whichever way you do it, system backup is important. Equally important is actually doing the restore operation, so as to know how to do it in a stressful situation where you really have to get it done. 

For my tablet, all I need is the Macrium Reflect WinPE 10 environment on a flash drive and the image archive on a second flash drive, with a hub to allow both drives to be used together. This works very well for travel, as there are no moving parts. My archive drive is so small I have to put it into a sandwich bag with the WinPE drive (and the hub) so as not to lose the mini flash drive.

 

Windows 10 Creators Update: The New Modern Way to Clean Up Your Disk Drive

Storage Sense has been in Windows 10 from the beginning, and therefore is nothing new. But it is being pushed to the forefront, as Disk Cleanup is being deprecated. Kind of a shame, as Disk Cleanup gets at areas not accessed by Storage Sense. Areas like Windows Update and Error Reporting dumps, which Microsoft would prefer users not clean. 

 

Free video streaming devices are riskier than you think

This is the EU, not the US. Streaming itself does not constitute downloading, and cache contents are not copies under US court rulings. Komando is dead wrong on this. However, boxes loaded with Kodi and containing certain channels or sources preloaded, are illegal. This is not because of cache contents. It is because of accessing certain websites through illegal apps or channels. The sites themselves are violating US Copyright Laws. That's the reason Amazon was forced to act. 

The mere presence of Kodi on a box is not a violation of anyone's laws. Unlike the EU, the US does not prosecute people for having a channel available on their box. In fact, what the EU is doing would violate the US Constitution and Bill of Rights in many ways, not to be discussed by a non-lawyer such as myself. Remember, EU nations do not follow our Constitution and our Bill of Rights. 

And technically, the EU rulings are just plain factually wrong.

FYI #910 (Wed. 5/10/2017)

Tech Terms: Streaming Vs. Downloading

Important distinction. Even though technically, any caching is a download, if you are caught with downloaded unauthorized copyrighted content, you can be fined, lose Internet privileges, or be sued (and in rare cases, threatened with jail time). But if all you did was stream something, and your caches are cleared afterwards, prosecution will likely fail in the US. Then again, if the Cisco sniffing trick is employed, you could be caught while streaming, so don't depend on cleaning up afterwards to protect you. 

(FWIW, as a Comcast subscriber, and with free network and other players on the Web, I find it unnecessary to do illegal streaming anymore. I never considered downloading any media files, legal or illegal due to having low bandwidth or speeds, but my new Comcast Internet is fast enough for downloading media content. Then again, Comcast does have that monthly cap.)

 

What Is 5G? (smartphones and computer data plans)

Short answer is, there is no true 5G capability in the US. This is all marketing hype.

 

How to check for the Intel Active Management exploit that lets hackers take over your PC

http://www.pcworld.com/article/3195246/security/how-to-check-for-the-intel-active-management-exploit-that-lets-hackers-take-over-your-pc.html

"For example, some of Intel's NUC computers feature Small Business Advantage support. Users testing their systems for the exploit have reported on forums such as Reddit that their consumer-focused H97-based boards have the exploit."

This raised my eyebrows a bit.

Intel® Security Advisory regarding escalation of privilege vulnerability in Intel® Active Management Technology (AMT)

https://communities.intel.com/thread/114093

The known to be affected NUC motherboards are Intel fifth-Gen and earlier core-i5 processors and older kits. Mine (Swift Canyon, sixth-gen) and the Skull Canyon sixth and seventh-gen kits are not affected. 

More bulletins and updates may follow after May 12, 2017. That's when the new NUC BIOS releases (firmware updates) will come out, to be in line with the Creators Update of Windows 10. I would wait on these updates for awhile. 

It won't hurt to run the utility, but you won't find anything unless your MoBo is one of those listed by Intel or a handful of others.

PSA: This Google Doc scam is spreading fast and will email everyone you know

 

Google warns of email scam that impersonates Google Docs

 

This sophisticated phishing scam has the entire internet terrified

Old news. Already shut down by Google. Still haven't seen hide nor hair of this one. If phishing emails terrify you, you need to pull the plug on your Internet connection NOW. 

 

The Google Docs attack took over a million Gmail accounts in an hour

...and was shut down in a bit over two hours, according to Google. One million accounts is small potatoes to Google -- they service billions of accounts daily.

Thieves stealing cars with $11 equipment

First, the equipment is $22, not $11. Second, the story was originally posted by Wired.com, so its reliability cannot be verified in the Komando version. Third, I do not trust the alleged sources of this article. It needs fact-checking. 

"RFID Cases" are just a ripoff -- they do not block strong, nearby RFID transmissions. Car FOBs have such signals. Smartphones are NOT protected by these devices, as they are tracked by GPS and cell tower triangulation. 

The most common way cars get stolen or hijacked is when owners leave the engine running and step out of sight. Or when they leave the car unlocked in a driveway or garage. Also, "warming up" your car before getting into it is just a waste of fuel and is actually harmful to your engine.

TRANSFERRING FILES BETWEEN YOUR SMARTPHONE AND PC — THE EASY WAY

You do know, don't you that in Windows and Linux, Android phones show up automatically as external removable drives when connected by USB cables. (Special Permissions, aka Rooting, are no longer needed for most smartphones.) Android, unlike iPhone has a file system, particularly under Linux. There may even be a backup app already on your phone -- my Moto G4 does have such an app (for Windows). And then there's my Google Drive, which is nowhere near capacity.

Microsoft just launched a clever sneak attack against Apple's MacBook

     The Surface Laptop costs $999 and runs Windows 10 S.

     Windows 10 S is targeted at education and will be on a variety of laptops.

     The Surface Laptop can be upgraded to a full version of Windows 10 Pro.

     It's going to be appealing to everyone, not just students.

How to Easily Set Up Third Party DNS on Linux

I did this a long time ago, and my browser performance (Chrome Beta under Ubuntu Linux) has improved, especially for some web sites.

 

The One Trick That Hacker-Proofs Your Computer

While it's safer by far than running as Administrator, this trick of using a Limited User Account by no m eans solves all your issues with hackers. 

By the way, the way Windows 10 Home handles whole disk encryption, you cannot log in with a Limited User Account, and you cannot log in without accessing your Microsoft Cloud Account. Doing so as Administrator is just plain reckless. So if you want whole disk encryption and don't want to upgrade to Pro, use VeraCrypt instead.
