NSA surveillance: A guide to staying secure"The NSA has huge capabilities – and if it wants in to your computer, it's in. With that in mind, here are five ways to stay safe"
Now that we have enough details about how the NSA eavesdrops on the internet, including today's disclosures of the NSA's deliberate weakening of cryptographic systems, we can finally start to figure out how to protect ourselves.
For the past two weeks, I have been working with the Guardian on NSA stories, and have read hundreds of top-secret NSA documents provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden. I wasn't part of today's story – it was in process well before I showed up – but everything I read confirms what the Guardian is reporting.
At this point, I feel I can provide some advice for keeping secure against such an adversary.
The primary way the NSA eavesdrops on internet communications is in the network. That's where their capabilities best scale. They have invested in enormous programs to automatically collect and analyze network traffic. Anything that requires them to attack individual endpoint computers is significantly more costly and risky for them, and they will do those things carefully and sparingly.
The application generates revenue for the developer by displaying ads and being bundled with all sorts of third-party software. This is common for many downloaders, but what ESET researchers have uncovered is not.
They’ve found that sometime between December 25, 2012 (version 188.8.131.52) and January 10, 2013, (version 184.108.40.206) a malicious component was added to the main executable file orbitdm.exe.
This new component actually turns the application into a distributed denial-of-service (DDOS) tool.
You can update to the latest version by downloading from official website and just running the setup (make sure you reg with the "glary" details beforehand)-mitzevo (April 17, 2013, 06:11 AM)
I dont understand your post, so I'll ask a few questions
1) do you mean I can somehow register with Glary pre-install - then just install the most recent version from site (?)
2) do I have to register with 'Glary' in order to use the software ? (I've donwloaded already but not installed)
3) or are you talking about getting the details from the registry ?!?-tomos (April 17, 2013, 08:06 AM)
