  • Krebs’s Number One Rule for Staying Safe Online: If you didn’t go looking for it, don’t install it!A great many online threats rely on tricking the user into taking some action — whether it be clicking an email link or attachment, or installing a custom browser plugin or application. Typically, these attacks take the form of scareware pop-ups that try to frighten people into installing a security scanner; other popular scams direct you to a video but then complain that you need to install a special “codec,” video player or app to view the content.
  • Only install software or browser add-ons if you went looking for them in the first place. And before you install anything, it’s a good idea to grab the software directly from the source.
  • Also, avoid directly responding to email alerts that (appear to) come from Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, your bank or some other site that holds your personal information. Instead, visit these sites using a Web browser bookmark.

  • Here's how they work:
    “The glasses work by selectively removing certain wavelengths between the red and green cones that allow them to be in essence pushed apart again,” said Don McPherson, EnChroma’s VP of products.

  • Growing up, we were told to “sit up straight” — not because it’s better for our health, but because it looks more productive. As it turns out, sitting up straight (i.e. 90-degree angle at the pelvis) is actually harmful in the long run.
  • We’ve known this for a while — since 2006, actually — but people keep perpetuating bad facts. Isn’t it time to put these myths to an end? Stop sitting up straight! The proper angle is somewhere between 120 and 135 degrees

  • a far safer approach with Java is simply to unplug it from the browser until and unless you need it (or uninstall it completely). If you need an idea of why I recommend this, have a gander at just a few of the most recent posts on Java.
  • One final note for those who decide to keep Java; unplugging it from the browser is a good idea, but keep in mind that Oracle’s Java installer re-enables the plug-in when the program is updated
