Trojanised TrueCrypt serves up malware to Russian-speaking targets

https://grahamcluley.com/2015/07/trojanised-truecrypt-serves-malware-russian-speaking-targets/
A Russian language version of TrueCrypt contains a secret backdoor trojan, researchers discover. However, because it was careful to pick and choose who was targeted, the malware distribution has gone unnoticed for a long time.

Windows 10: You might be wise to wait before upgrading

https://grahamcluley.com/2015/07/windows-10-wise-wait-upgrading/
Many people are saying that Windows 10 is better than Windows 7 and Windows 8 - but if it ain't broke, why fix it? Instead, let millions of other Microsoft Windows users upgrade before you.

I've had a lot of users asking me what I think of Windows 10 & whether they should upgrade.  None seems to have a reason or even know why they want to upgrade, just that it's new & shiny.   (No, I will not help you upgrade your 5 year old personal laptop that you say is working fine.)  I'll wait a while & try it on a machine that I can reimage if it doesn't work out.

The difference between newspaper and online ads

https://grahamcluley.com/2015/07/difference-newspaper-online-ads/

Yahoo pays out equivalent of 80,000+ t-shirts to bug finders

https://grahamcluley.com/2015/07/yahoo-bug-bounty-million/
Yahoo used to really know how to treat the vulnerability researchers who found bugs in its services. They used to send them a voucher for a free Yahoo t-shirt. Sadly, those glory days are over.

We all know that there’s a problem with passwords. Most internet users are careless when choosing passwords – either re-using the same passwords they’ve used elsewhere or making them too easy to crack.
