Remember back when it was safe to browse the internet? Neither do I. I do however, remember a time when it was only PCs that needed protection. These days, even mobile devices need all the security they can get. In fact, I am starting to wonder if I need security for my new Smart TV! It is time for Security 101.



AreYouAHuman Captcha – Cracked Already

For those of you unfamiliar with AreYouAHuman’s CAPTCHA — it replaces those annoying text-based CAPTCHAs where you try to rewrite the blurry / pixelated CAPTCHA text into a box. Instead, you play a game (such as drag all food into a refrigerator). This is a nice alternative that is way less frustrating. Is it more secure though? Nope. It’s been cracked already. See the below video for more information!

According to ZNET, Apple Employees have been told to not confirm or deny the fact that there is now Malware. They have been instructed to stay away from removing the malware and to guide users to purchase antivirus software. You can find the full leaked email by clicking the photo below.
