Phishing & Spam – how to identify fake customer communication via e-mail

Cyber criminals are using more and more treacherous methods to permanently damage web service users. A very popular method is through the use of fake e-mail that at first glance seems like real customer communication. These types of emails mimic service providers by sending alleged bills or other official-looking notifications to recipients who are then asked to follow a link to a website, where they are asked to provide sensitive information such as passwords or payment information. With this information, cyber criminals can access customer data for criminal purposes and inflict financial harm. There can also be hidden malware in attached files, which infect a user’s computer once opened. In recent cases, cyber criminals have evolved their tactics by sending phishing e-mails claiming to close a user’s account. Should the reader fall for the scam and enter their login information on a fake website, the email and password may end up being released to other spam mailing lists.

The reason for this unusual scene: a competition by the data storage and data management specialist NetApp. 1&1 was chosen as the only European company among the four finalists of the twelfth “NetApp Innovation Awards.” As a nominee, 1&1 was asked to introduce the company—and especially the Server experts—with a video.

Happy Birthday Linux!

Digital Tube- Code

It all started on the 25th of August in 1991. The Finnish College student Linus Thorvalds posted in a Minix Newsgroup that he was going to develop a license free Operating System saying it was “just a hobby, won’t be anything big or professional.”

24 years later, we can see what derived from this “hobby.” Linux is part of everyday computing and it’s even used in fields where we don’t recognize it at the first sight – as in the field of Embedded Systems.

It is used in Routers, Navigation systems, TVs, Mp3-Players and of course in Mobile Phones with the well known Linux-based Android operating system. The most important field for the Linux OS is the Internet. Nearly every Web server is hosted with Linux.
