  1. Three out of five Americans concerned hackers could spy on them via their webcam

  2. The dark side of IoT devices

    Internet of Things (IoT) devices can be anything from coffee machines to fitness watches to thermostats, all of which are designed to make our lives more convenient, but what happens when they turn bad? Hard to imagine, but these innocent devices, which we are welcoming into our lives, can be unwillingly infected or hacked and thus join the dark side.

  3. Ladies and Gentlemen, prepare your CPU—web browser mining is coming

    You may have noticed that certain websites put significant load on your CPU and slow it down. Aside from the possibility that you may not have the best hardware, the slowdown could be due to a JavaScript miner embedded in the website. Instead of getting bombarded with annoying ads, you may now be getting an ad-free experience while unknowingly lending your computing resources to help mine cryptocurrency—in this case Monero, a privacy-focused alternative to the ever-popular Bitcoin.
