Google handles Android Smartphone security breach smartly

We trust our electronics to pay bills and make purchases online, not to mention they store all of our personal information. With so much information stored on devices like Android smartphones and consoles like the Sony Playstation 3, one has to wonder just how safe and secure they are. The answer it seems is that they are not very secure at all.

Google calls foul play

Just recently Google dropped a bombshell and confirmed that there was a major security flaw in its ever popular Android operating system. Seeing that there are over 400,000 Android smartphones and tablets being activated every single day, the amount of loss that could have occurred could have been catastrophic.

A team of German researchers discovered that Android devices that were connected to unsecured Wi-Fi networks could have easily been hacked from remote operators. Once hacked, all information stored on phone could have been accessed by the hacker. Fortunately Google reacted swiftly, and quickly sent out a patch to Android devices around the world.

How can you stay safe on Android?

While the exploit has been fixed there are still some things that users of Android devices can do to make sure that they are safe.

By going to the app store and downloading an Anti-Virus app, end users can have peace of mind that their phone will be protected in the event that they download an app that may contain a virus. Users should also try to refrain from joining unsecured networks, like the ones you would find at Starbucks, or the local library. One last thing would be to only install applications that you know of, and never install apps that come from anywhere other than Google authorized app stores.

As a user of an Android powered smartphone I can say that I am incredibly happy at the way Google dealt with this problem. They moved quickly, identified the problem, and fixed it within 36 hours of the breach. If only all companies were equal when it comes to this.

Sony falls victim too

If you had not heard about the Android problem, then you surely have heard about the breach that Sony has suffered. Sony’s highly popular Playstation Network which lets users play and purchases games online was recently targeted by hackers.

The biggest difference between the Sony breach and the Google breach is that Sony reacted very poorly to the situation. In fact everyone who had ever signed up for the service (some 50 million) had all of their information stolen, including credit card numbers, phone numbers, and addresses.

Sony’s security around the Playstation network was incredibly weak. In fact there was not even a Firewall protecting its servers. The hackers were smart, and they left hardly any traces of the attack. The only thing that was found on Sony’s servers was a calling card left by a group called Anonymous.

After many attempts to fix the security flaws in its network, Sony has failed every time. When they say they have fixed the problem, the network gets hacked again. Two months after the initial attacks, there has been a further 10 breaches in their security systems.

There are obviously some flaws in the security that companies employ when it comes to protecting your personal information, but do not let it stop you from using, and enjoying the many wonderful things that your gadgets can do. Just be careful what information you share, and you should be just fine.

Hey, came cros your web and saw u have coupons n stuf. Can I erase my surf history on internet for free? Sum program I kan download free?

Tks, plx b sur to email bak.
Jes

Hi Jes,

Not to be insulting, but please enroll in a school that will help you with your communication skills. I know English may be your second language (or if it’s not, you really should head back to school to download a lot of new information), but it’s hard even to understand what you’re asking.

My guess is that you are looking for a way to erase your Internet browsing history from your computer, and you’re asking if there’s a program that you can download for free?

I’m also judging (though it may be an unfair judgment), that what you want is not really to protect your privacy, but that you really just want to download something to make sure your wife/mom/dad/kids (oh help us all if you’re educating little ones), don’t find out what you’ve been doing on the Internet.

There are programs that you can download for free. However, we don’t recommend most of them as they come filled with scams and spam and other junk.

One program that is pretty good though is Internet Privacy Eraser. They have a free trial download which you can see links for above and below, and this will let you erase your browsing history so that you can protect your privacy.

In your case, you can also erase all those porn sites you’ve been visiting.

Internet Privacy Eraser also has a free trial download, but if you know you will be using it a lot, we recommend you go ahead and buy Internet Privacy Eraser’s Pro version. We’ve gotten a 40% off coupon code below.

So, link 1 below goes directly to the trial download. If you want to test it before you use it, click that link.

Otherwise, click link #2 and get the coupon for 40% off when you buy Privacy Eraser Pro.

——————

IMSI/Design, the company behind TurboCAD Professional and Deluxe is offering several coupon codes right now when you download TurboCAD.

You can see those above.

Since we’ve already spent a lot of time reviewing the potential negatives and the awesome positives of TurboCAD, we thought we would also talk a little bit about IMSI/Design, the company behind TurboCAD.

IMSI/Design is based out of Novato, CA. As far as retail CAD (Computer Aided Design) programs , IMSI/Design leads the market. They do this with affordable and effective programs and software in the CAD space. Including TurboCAD, they also have programs that are more tailored to specific applications like TurboFLOORPLAN (for home plans), TurboSketch, and DesignCAD.

The company started off in 1983 and was originally called International Microcomputer Software, Inc.

Remember programs like PC Paintbrush and Dr. Halo? No? Well, some people do. Those were International Microcomputer Software programs. The first renditions of TurboCAD were actually brought into the market by IMSI/Design in the late 1980’s. FloorPlan and DesignCAD were brought into the market during the 1990’s.

IMSI/Design became a company in 2006 with a purchase by an investor group headed by Royal Farros. Royal is now the Chairman and CEO of IMSI/Design, and with a person like this at the head of the company, you can understand why it’s had the success it has had.

We’ve been impressed reading the bios of most of the board of directors at IMSI/Design. The most impressive among them is Mr. Farros, who was part of MessageCast (sold to Microsoft in 2005), then founded and headed iPrint.com (which he took public in 2000). Mr. Farros has also been a San Jose Business Journal Entrepreneur of the Year award winner, been on CNBC, Silicon Spin, and other financial and high tech venues. He also holds multiple patents for online desktop publishing/manufacturing process work.

Again, with someone who has that kind of background heading IMSI/Design, you can feel pretty good that TurboCAD will not only do what you want it to do, but will also be supported in case you need help with the program.

Before you go to download TurboCAD, make sure to look at the coupon codes below to see if either coupon will help you save money.

Roxio Creator 2011: Review and Coupon Code

We’ve already reviewed Roxio Creator and some of the cool features included with Roxio Creator 2011.

You should already know as well (from the above link) about the coupon code for Roxio Creator.

Today, we just want to review for you a bit of what we talked about, as well as talk about what we’ve found having had a bit more time to review how amazing and feature-rich Roxio Creator is.

Honestly, that is one of people’s biggest complaints with the program, and we can understand why. With so many features packed into one program, it can become easy to get lost or simply not be able to find the function or feature you really want.

While Roxio Creator does offer a lot of tools and features, we actually find that for all the complex things the program allows you to do, using the software is really quite simple (once you spend a little time with Creator and learn how to use it). Continue reading Roxio Creator Coupon Code

Pinnacle Studio Download for Vista

Hey Identysecrets
You mentioned Pinnacle Studio for Windows 7 Download. What about for Vista?
RK

Hi RK.
Thanks for your question.

You can actually get the Windows Vista Download for Pinnacle Studio via the same promo code link we gave for Windows 7. Although we would really recommend an upgrade to Windows 7 if possible.

Vista is a fine operating system and the old version of Office was good, but there are so many nicer features in Windows 7, and it’s not the resource hog that Windows Vista is.

But if you decide to stick with Vista, you’ll get all the same great features of Pinnacle Studio… they just might work a little slower on Vista than if you were on a Windows 7 machine.

No matter… we’re not really here to convince you about which version of Windows you should be using.

Getting Pinnacle Studio, you’ll be taken to Avid’s website. Avid says that over half of their employees have some kind of professional background working with professional audio and video. Since the majority of their employees are actually using Avid solutions away from work, they encounter the same kinds of challenges that everyday users run into.

This allowed Avid to develop Pinnacle Studio both for Windows Vista and Windows 7 (and the previous company and previous versions to work well as well).

If you’re looking to get the Pinnacle Studio download for Vista, check out the link below.

Data Rescue 3 (for PC Windows Users)

I saw someone online say that Data Rescue 3 for Windows was made by a company called Recoversoft.

I’m fairly certain (99.999% sure) that the company is actually called Prosoft.

I’m not sure if they were ever called Recoversoft, but you can see the company listed on the Amazon page is Prosoft.

Data Rescue 3 is really known for being a popular recovery software among Mac users.

However, PC (Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7) users will also find Prosoft’s data recovery software to be a great tool for help with data recovery on Windows machines.

One of the reviewers on Amazon said that they got confused by the user Interface, but that the tech support was able to help very quickly simply by sending back a couple of emails.

The review goes on to say that the software worked very well for them after learning how to use the program.

Generally speaking, for both the Windows and Mac versions of Data Rescue 3, the big selling point is the customer support.

People feel like when they do get stuck, Prosoft is there to help them with a real person who understands their questions and responds in a helpful way.

Another reviewer said that one nice thing about Prosoft’s software is that it does not require Windows to be running in order to get back your data. This particular reviewer was using Windows Vista and when he ran into trouble and called Prosoft, they “actually answered the phone and even called me back”.

If you can get a software company to restore your confidence and give you great answers to your challenges, that’s a product worth looking into.

If you are in need of data recovery for your Windows machine, we recommend taking a look at Data Rescue 3 PC.

You’ll find the best price for the software on Amazon.

Roxio Creator Free Trial Download

——————
Check out the site to see if the free trial download is still available
Free trial download of Roxio Creator
http://www.identitytheftsecrets.com/roxio-creator-free-trial
——————

Roxio Creator is one of the most well-known, well used, and well-liked programs from Roxio.

And it makes sense that it would be.

Roxio Creator is a highly functional full-feature software designed to free you from the constraints offered by similar software so that you can let your creativity blossom and flower into amazing creations.

Even when you download Creator on a Trial basis, the program really allows you to take boring and standard videos and convert them into amazing visions.

With Creator 2011, you also get the ability to make videos and photos into 3-D. The program comes with a free set of 3D glasses so that you can see what you’re doing, and then have your friends view your photos and videos in 3D.

Who would have thought that would have been possible even just a couple of years ago… to make 3D videos and photos right on your home PC?

People really seem to love how feature rich Roxio Creator really is.

Some of the things you can do (in addition to all of the 3D functionality) with Roxio Creator include:
-Burning and Copying data through Roxio’s simple tools for archiving and sharing through CDs or DVDs.
-Scheduling backups (or doing them manually).
-Encryption and password protection of backed up data
-Conversion of video, photo, audio, and data files so that they can be read on CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray Discs, mobile phones, iPads, iPods, and other portable devices

One of the biggest challenges people seem to have with Roxio Creator is that it really is feature rich.

Many of the features built into the program take some time to grasp.

It’s even likely that you won’t use all of the features of Roxio Creator right away, if ever.

If you’re not okay having extra features in a program, Roxio Creator may not be for you.

If you’re not willing to spend just a small amount of time learning how a program works, then Roxio Creator may not be right for you.

However, that having been said, Roxio Creator is an amazing piece of software, and we definitely recommend checking out the free trial download and seeing how Roxio Creator can help you accomplish more with your photos, videos, and data.
