Sophos enews (18 January 2010)

If I publish this article, containing reports about various problems you may meet on your travels around the WWW. and the Internet, and which comes from "Sophos.com" (go there and subscribe to get the news) it's because I've realised that there are many more bad people out there than I thought.
I've started, today, to play around with "Linux" and I have realised there is a long way to go before people accept that everybody has a right to use things like the Internet, without being automatically exposed to all sorts of abnormal situations.
I am not naive, and I've had my "moments" in my life, but it is shockingly obvious that a large percentage of all types of villains, gangsters, thieves, fraudsters...and others have "educated" themselves, and now prefer to menace or defraude others in a "peaceful" manner - no guns, no physical violence, just clever little bits of text on an Internet page!
Good or bad developement - I have no idea, but I do know that from Governments down to little tramps who sleep under bridges, you can't be sure of anything - or anyone - in these days of "IT"

  (At least it's not robbery...!)

But this......?

Report: India Claims It Was Also Hacked by Chinese

India may have been targeted by hackers from China, the country's security advisor tells a UK paper.

And this...?  (Actually "iwmpop" (mrlemarquis) reported this a couple of days ago on his VAUVERTVILLAGE weblogsite....) All the other alerts just show what life apparently is all about nowadays...and not only in the "virtual" world!

Good luck - Bonne Chance....!


German and French governments say stop using Internet Explorer
----
In response to the Internet Explorer flaw, European governments are advising users and organisations to switch to an alternative browser (until Microsoft issues a patch at least).  But is this sensible advice?  Read our thoughts and let us know what you think.

Windows XP users: Have you updated Flash?
----
Microsoft has published a security advisory, warning users of Windows XP that they must update their installations of Flash. Windows XP came with version 6 of the Adobe Flash Player, and it has been discovered that that version contains a number of vulnerabilities that could be exploited if you visited a boobytrapped webpage. Learn more about the danger, and ensure you are running up-to-date software.

Adobe has issued fixes for multiple vulnerabilities in its Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat software, one of which has been actively exploited by hackers (and detected by Sophos as Troj/PDFJs-FS since mid-December). If you're a user of Adobe Reader and Acrobat, then please read the security bulletin, and download the updated versions as soon as possible.
