Secure Your Wireless Router

A wireless network means connecting an internet access point – such as a cable or DSL modem – to a wireless router. Going wireless is a convenient way to allow multiple devices to connect to the internet from different areas of your home. However, unless you secure your router, you’re vulnerable to people accessing information on your computer, using your internet service for free and potentially using your network to commit cybercrimes.

Here are ways to secure your wireless router:

Change the name of your router: The default ID – called a service set identifier” (SSID) or “extended service set identifier” (ESSID ) – is assigned by the manufacturer. Change your router to a name that is unique to you and won’t be easily guessed by others.

Change the preset password on your router: Leaving a default password unchanged makes it much easier for hackers to access your network. You should change it as soon as possible. A strong password is a sentence that is at least 12 characters long. Focus on positive sentences or phrases that you like to think about and are easy to remember (for example, “I love country music.”). On many sites, you can even use spaces!

Review security options: When choosing your router’s level of security, opt for WPA2, if available, or WPA – these levels are more secure than the WEP option.

Create a guest password: Some routers allow for guests to use networks via separate guest passwords. If you have many visitors to your home, it’s a good idea to set up a guest network.

Use a firewall: Firewalls help keep hackers from using your device to send out your personal information without your permission. While antivirus software scans incoming email and files, a firewall is like a guard, watching for attempts to access your system and blocking communications with sources you don’t permit. Your operating system and/or security software likely comes with a pre-installed firewall, but make sure you turn on these features.

In cases of Cyberbullying:

If you’re a child or teen, tell a trusted adult about what’s going on.

Save any of the related emails, text messages or other
correspondence as evidence.

Keep a record of incidents.

Report the incident to the website’s administrator; many social media platforms and other websites encourage users to report incidents of cyberbullying.

Block the person on social networks and in email.

Avoid escalating the situation: Responding with hostility is likely to provoke a bully. Depending on the circumstances, consider ignoring the issue. Often, bullies thrive on the reaction of their victims. If you or your child receives unwanted email messages, consider changing your email address. The problem may stop. If you continue to get messages at the new account, you may have a strong case for legal action.

If the communications become more frequent, the threats more severe, the methods more dangerous and if third-parties (such as hate groups and sexually deviant groups) become involved—the more likely law enforcement needs to be contacted and a legal process initiated.

In cases of online stalking:

•In cases where the offender is known, send the stalker a clear written warning saying the contact is unwanted and asking that the perpetrator cease sending communications of any kind. Do this only once and do not communicate with the stalker again (Ongoing contact usually only encourages the stalker to continue the behavior).

Save copies of all communication from the stalker (e.g., emails, threatening messages, and messages via social media) and document each contact, including dates, times and additional circumstances, when appropriate.

File a complaint with the stalker’s internet service provider (ISP) and yours. Many ISPs offer tools that filter or block communications from specific individuals.
Own your online presence. Set security and privacy settings on social networks and other services to your comfort level of sharing.

Consider changing your email address and ISP; use encryption software or privacy protection programs on your computer and mobile devices. (You should consult with law enforcement before changing your email account. It can be beneficial to the investigation to continue using the email account so law enforcement can also monitor communication.)

Protect your data from Ransomware
Data Backup is important If you back up files to either an external hard drive or to an online backup service, you diminish the threat, “If you back up your information, you should not be afraid to just turn off your computer and start over with a new install if you come under attack.
Use reputable antivirus software and a firewall. Maintaining a strong firewall and keeping your security software up to date are critical. It’s important to use antivirus software from a reputable company because of all the fake software out there.
Exercise caution. Don’t click on links inside emails, and avoid suspicious websites. If your PC does come under attack, use another computer to research details about the type of attack. But be aware that the bad guys are devious enough to create fake sites, perhaps touting their own fake antivirus software or their de-encryption program.
Disconnect from the Internet. If you receive a ransomware note: disconnect from the Internet so your personal data isn’t transmitted back to the criminals, He recommends simply shutting down the computer. If you have backed up your data, you can re-install software. If you don’t feel comfortable doing so or you are unable to start fresh, you may need to take your computer to a Reputable Data Recovery Lab.
Enable your popup blocker. Popups are a prime tactic used by the bad guys, so simply avoid even accidentally clicking on an infected popup. If a popup appears, click on the X in the right-hand corner. The buttons within a popup might have been reprogrammed by the criminals, so do not click on them.

Servers of MeDoc Maker Seized by Police Following NotPetya Outbreak

Ukrainian police have seized the servers of the firm that created MeDoc accounting software on the suspicion the company unwittingly helped spread NotPetya malware.

Col. Serhiy Demydiuk, head of Cyberpolice Ukraine, confirmed on 3 July 2017 that Intellect Service is under investigation. The officer said Ukraine’s police is looking into the company after it failed to heed several warnings about the digital security of its software infrastructure.

Intellect Service is the maker of MeDoc, Ukraine’s most popular accounting software. Cyberpolice Ukraine and others believe someone hacked MeDoc’s update server and abused that access to push out an update laden with NotPetya malware. On 27 June 2017, this wiper software struck power plants, airports, and government agencies in Ukraine before spreading to other multinational firms that also use MeDoc.

How to Save Data from a Wet Hard Drive

Power It Down

The first thing to do whenever an electronic device is exposed to water is to immediately power it down and set it somewhere to dry. For desktop computers, completely isolate your computer's circuitry by shutting off the power switch from the back. Even though the computer may seem to be operating normally after it has had water on it, it may just be that the water has not yet worked its way into a dangerous area where it can cause a short. That said, moving the computer around can make the water to shift and cause more harm to the system. If possible, towel off any water outside of the machine before it can get in but take care not to move the machine itself. Let it sit still and airs dry it with a fan for at least an hour, but preferably overnight.

Once the majority of the computer has had time to dry, a blow drier on a low setting can help ensure that the device is completely dry.

Test The Hard Drive

The safest way to recover data from your hard drive is to immediately remove the drive and take it to a specialist. They can analyse the drive and ensure that it hasn't shorted, which protects your equipment and the data that potentially survived any damage the hard drive received. If that option isn't available, the next best alternative is to hook the drive up to an old computer that hasn't had any potential shorts, as damage to other equipment in the device can easily destroy your hard drive when next you power it up. If the drive passes the power-on-startup-test, it may not have suffered harm at all and it may be possible to copy any critical data onto a flash drive or in the best case continue to use the drive. If the drive fails POST, then there is little that can be done besides taking the drive to a hardware recovery specialist.
Water is a serious hazard to computers and hard drives especially, but real world circumstances can make this mix in unintended ways. The best solution is first to protect your hardware from shorts, and then recover the data as best with a specialist.
