Having wrinkles in a USB stick is certainly not great. But here’s some good news: Dry cleaners are taking care of it and remove them from your clothes before processing your laundry. To strike a more serious note, a study conducted by internet security firm ESET in the United Kingdom has revealed that 22,266 USB sticks and 973 cell phones are among the various gold nuggets found by dry cleaners in dirty laundry each year. However, a staggering 45 percent of the devices never make it back to their owners.These numbers are alarming but only the tip of the iceberg.

Computer crimes targeted at businesses are at their lowest level ever, according to a leading expert in the field.Computer crime, observed Robert Richardson, editorial director for the Computer Security Institute (CSI) in Philadelphia "is as low as it's ever been and has dropped off significantly from last year."Speaking yesterday at a Webcast on the annual CSI/FBI Computer Crime and Security Survey, Richardson noted that the average loss per cybercrime incident in 2005 was about US$250,000. That compares to $500,000 in 2004 and more than $3 million in 2001 -- the highwater mark for the survey, which has been conducted annually since 1999."We've gotten better and better at stopping [attacks] before they cost us a lot of money," Richardson told Webcast listeners.Another reason for declining losses due to cybercrime could be increased demands on corporations to comply with rules and regulations like the Sarbanes-Oxley Act."The impact of Sarbanes-Oxley and other regulations will continue … [Read more...] about Experts: Computer Crime Down But Caution Still Needed

It was patched in build LMY48M of Android 5.1.1, released last week for Nexus users," Gordon told LinuxInsider.The lockscreen vulnerability affects only devices that have an active password lock securing the phone. That type of lock exposes a text field to accept data entry.Other locking methods, such as pattern or PIN locks, do not provide a text field. The hack needs text pasted into that field to crash the lockscreen.Gordon found … [Read more...] about Patched Android Lockscreen Still a Threat
Symantec's latest security suite, Norton 360, gives less-experienced consumers a fresh approach to hardening their computer security with a from-the-ground-up rebuild of its Norton Internet Security Suite into a product that offers anti-intrusion, PC optimization and backup modules.Norton 360 is a step up for Symantec, as it competes with McAfee Total Protection and Microsoft Live OneCare all-in-one security solutions. Norton 360 takes careful aim at improving Internet security, but it dumbs down the configuration features so that typical users get an out-of-the-box package that provides almost no fiddling of settings and user options.If your security needs go beyond the mainstream PC user, however, Norton 360 will not leave you smiling. Its target user is the mainstream consumer who desires hands-off protection."We decided to start from scratch and create an all-in-one package with a totally rewritten user interface," Thomas Powledge, senior director of consumer security for … [Read more...] about PRODUCT REVIEW Norton 360: Is Hands-Off Security a Good Thing?
