The vulnerability affects computers that are using WPAD
Poorly configured networks and new rules on internet domain names are giving cybercriminals a powerful new attack tool.

Creepy?
What if we combine lots of mobile device data to build a “Trust Score” so your phone can judge you in real time?

"Criminal organizations have attacked the digital ad ecosystem with malware that generates non-human traffic and defrauds legitimate participants"
Someday this may change… but, in 2016, when advertisers pay for online advertising, they still want actual humans to see those ads

This could have been a real problem for Instagrammers.
OK, he couldn’t grab *every* account, just 4% of them – but he’d most likely find out your phone number at the same time.

+George Greene then they use the backup previously as anybody who has one set of backup storage in business , does not have a backup plan in place. Least three previous versions and then have a weekly and monthly. That is if you do it right but so many fools in IT these days with certificates that do not stand up against experience.
