Home.giantsender.com Redirect (Mac)

Home.giantsender.com is a fake Internet search engine claiming to generate improved search results and provide quick access to various popular websites. Judging on the appearance only, home.giantsender.com barely differs from Google, Yahoo, Bing, and other similar legitimate search engines. For this reason, many believe that home.giantsender.com is just as legitimate. However, be aware that developers promote home.giantsender.com by employing a browser-hijacking application called Giant Sender, which supposedly allows users to share large data files. Moreover, home.giantsender.com continually monitors user's Internet browsing activity. Research results show that Giant Sender targets Safari, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

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 ...

British Tesco Bank Halts all Online Banking, Russian Central Bank Hacked

In what one could characterize as the worst banking hacker attack this year - and the only one to have ever caused a bank to shut down its site - Tesco Bank shut off online banking for all of its accounts after 40,000 of them were attacked. Hackers stole £2.5 million from 9,000 accounts. The bank stopped all online activity, but the site is back up now. The bank has not said specifically what steps they have taken to harden their site. An employee who spoke to the media says the problem most likely could be blamed on Tesco grocery. Tesco also operates an online and brick and mortar grocery business. The employee said the bank’s employees are carefully vetted and its security is good. But the bank’s system is connected to the grocery system which has unpatched servers and poor security in general, the employee said. It could be that the banking regulator shut down the online bank. The regulator issued a statement...
