Ads by TribalAd PPC Ad Network

TribalAd PPC Ad Network is a legitimate advertising network, however, research shows that associated advertisements are often displayed by various potentially unwanted adware-type programs (PUPs). By falsely claiming to provide 'useful functions' PUPs often attempt to give the impression of legitimacy. In fact, these apps often infiltrate systems without users' permission. Furthermore, adware continually monitors users' Internet browsing activity and delivers various intrusive online advertisements. Adware-type applications employ a 'virtual layer' to generate pop-up, banner, coupon, and other similar advertisements. This enables placement of third party graphical content on any site. Therefore, displayed ads are likely to conceal underlying content of websites visited, significantly diminishing the Internet browsing experience. Furthermore, adware displays various advertisement...

How to remove “Your device has been blocked” ransomware virus from Android tablet or phone?

Cyber criminals have been spreading ransomware viruses on Windows-based computers for some time. These types of infections became popular in mid-2006 and continue to infect personal computers and extort money from their victims. Recently, security research began showing a rise in Android-based mobile ransomware infections. Commonly, ransomware viruses exploit the names of authorities including the FBI, USA Cyber Crime Investigations, and The ICE Cyber Crime Center - making fake claims that users must pay an amount of money (for supposed law violations such as watching pornography, using copyrighted files, etc.) in order to unblock their devices. In most cases, cyber criminals employ the Green Dot MoneyPak, Ukash, or PaySafeCard pre-paid card services to collect fake fines from unsuspecting mobile device users. Tablet and mobile phone users should be aware that paying these fines as ordered by these messages ...

Hackers Steal Facebook User Access Tokens from Epic Games

Hackers this week stole 800,000 user tokens from Epic Games. Much of that was Facebook data.   When you go to a website that lets you login with your Google or Facebook credentials, that site exchanges data with Google or Facebook. Those social media sites issues some kind of token, which you can think of as a session ticket. That is what lets you log in. Obviously that data exchange point is a good spot for hackers to lurk as those tokens can be used to spoof user credentials. In other words, they can pretend to be that user if they have those session tickets. This is not usually a concern with, for example, SSL web session tokens. That is because those are set to timeout. Also because of the certificate chain-of-authority, those cannot be used by a third party. This is because the hacker cannot fake being a valid person at the end of the chain. What does this mean for Facebook?If you read Facebook’s ...
