This is a doozy right here…. be on your shit!
Cybersecurity is a constant battleground. In 2017, security researchers discovered some 23,000 new malware specimens per day (that’s 795 per hour).
While that headline is shocking, it turns out that the majority of these specimens are variants of the same malware type. They just have slightly different code that each creates a “new” signature.
Every now and then, though, a truly new malware strain bursts onto the scene. Mylobot is one such example: it’s new, highly sophisticated, and gathering momentum. Continue reading

Why do companies, who keep our info, don’t take security seriously is beyond my understandings as a logical being…. go to equifaxsecurity2017.com and see if u have been hacked..
Yesterday, Equifax announced that a hacker obtained information about 143 million consumers. This data included Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some cases, driver license numbers. Equifax customers are obviously really, really mad.
