Network Security

Network security consists of the policies adopted to prevent and monitor authorized access, misuse, modification, or denial of a computer network and network-accessible resources. Network security involves the authorization of access to data in a network, and covers a variety of computer networks; conducting transactions and communications among businesses, government agencies and individuals. Networks can be private, such as within a company, and others which might be open to public access.

Password-Managers
Each password manager has its own problems in dealing with certain websites and their login methods. In Part 1, I review the Top 5 Password Managers that I've found to be the best. In Part 2 we'll look at which ones co-exist together and why it's often useful to use more than one.

Hi Thomas,

I've gotten a response from Sticky Password Premium Support and there is a way to Merge the USB database, though not immediately obvious so I'm not surprised it's easily missed..

The database of the Portable version can be updated by almost the same steps as when installing it. Connect the USB device with the Portable version installed to a Windows computer with the installed desktop version of Sticky Password and navigate to the main Sticky Password window - Menu - Tools - Portable Passwords. You will get an option to replace or merge the databases of both Sticky Password installations:

Cloud sync feature for the Portable version is not in our nearest plans however we may add it in future updates.


Hope that helps.

Andrew

Andrew,

Yes this is how I update my stick database.  I always choose the overwrite option.  It is unfortunate that Sticky Password does not have the option to sync from the stick.

It’s been over a month into 2017, and there is already a sophisticated Gmail phishing email making it rounds. New techniques and tactics, have given hackers a way to authentically impersonate your contacts.

How it Works


fake gmail login screen- phishedThe attack works by targeting a victim’s contact list and sending out authentic looking phishing emails. When this forged email is opened and the attachment clicked, a page appearing to be the Google log in portal opens.

Once the victim submits their credentials into the site, the hackers start crawling the victim’s inbox. These crawlers look at previous subject lines and attachments for contextual relevance to copy.

A screenshot is taken of a previous attachment and a new message is composed. This screenshot becomes the entry way into the phishing Gmail login page. The subject line is then pulled from a previous email that would be relevant to the attachment.

The new version of the email is sent to all the victims contacts, and the attack starts again. The use of previous subject lines and attachment, help to make the hacker’s email look very genuine. This technique has tricked many users into opening the infected attachment.

One of these emails is described by a commenter on Hacker News,

“[The hackers] went into one student’s account, pulled an attachment with an athletic team practice schedule, generated the screenshot, and then paired that with a

Hi Shakshi

Thanks for your submission.  889 words, completely original content, and reads fairly well.  The technical aspects of this article seem pretty solid, but I'm going to send this back to Draft / Author Review for some general readability editing.  When you're done go ahead and resubmit and I'll review from there.

Please separate paragraphs with a blank line, as without that an article can resemble a 'word wall' where everything jumbles together and can be difficult to read.

>fruitful dispatch, inculcate, buttonhole, the prerequisite in a venture, Addedly, ingressed, environ
These words are rarely used and may confuse people.  Keep in mind that if these are local slang than it might not translate well to a global audience.  I can appreciate that you're trying to tell a story and be somewhat entertaining in the process, but just make sure you don't lose people in the translation.

>as it were, Addedly,
There are some phrases here that do not add value and can be deleted.

>Now let's take a brief about what Threat modeling is: Threat modeling does not include
Please define something by what it is, not what it is not.  The 'is not' stuff can always be added later.

If terms are going to be introduced but not defined please at minimum provide a link to a definition.

Please provide a conclusion.
