KT's Cyber Security Thread
« on: October 14, 2023, 06:32:24 am »
You know I hate scammers. I have had honey traps for scammers and have reported and shut down sites and servers of scammers. But I realized I had never made a thread about security stuff. I thought this would be good for sharing security tips not just by myself but from websites or any of you other members who want to add good online practices, known scam warnings (online shops, fake antivirus sites & programs, Trojan, other malware, social engineering), and password tips, etc.

Also, different types of scammers are usually from different countries depending on the scam, but that does not mean they are all from a certain country and not from another. There are good people in the same countries scammers are in. Typically, the majority of Tech Scams and Refund Scams are from India and Romance Scams and Prize Winning Scams (419) are from Nigeria or other countries in the continent of Africa.

A scammer sends text to your cell hoping you will click the link or tell them the verification code so that they (the scammer) gains access to something under YOUR name.


More videos I wanted to share. I don't know if anyone else will find this interesting but I have a huge passion for security and could watch these type of videos all day.

Why using the same password for years is bad (as well as using the same password for more than one site)

 I'm not sure if this is the place to post this, but I thought it might be.

This is the right place for this.  Thanks Dave.

This guy was certainly personally opinionated about his browser choices.  Most of them I would never use.  And others I've never heard of.  But nice to see what a few of them have to offer.  I personally use Firefox and Edge.  Both are heavily modded though.  I do agree that it is a pain to have to manually setup any of these browsers to your likings.  But then again, I don't reformat my system every month either.

Ya I always mod. I have always liked to make what I use as I like it instead of how they thought I would use it.

Even though an old one still points out the importance of changing passwords often as well as keeping on top of all sights you have accounts on and be aware of breaches.

The 773 Million Record "Collection #1" Data Breach

https://www.troyhunt.com/the-773-million-record-collection-1-data-reach/

A good read with a lot of good information. I have been following Troy for over a decade now.
