As many know in recent days has been much talk of Google + , a new push by the firm in Mountain View in the field of social networks. At the moment the service is being closed beta so it can only be accessed by those who receive an invitation email .
However, take special careful because security specialists have detected circulating false invitations on the web. Some fraudsters are sending e-mails with apparent links that let you create accounts on Google +, but the links do not link to the social network sites but pornographic or sale of drugs
This is the first “scam” that detects the hand of the new service in Mountain View, and from Naked Security recommend be especially careful. The report is false invitations look exactly like the real thing, but the difference is that are sent by e-mail unknown . If you have friends or acquaintances who are on Google +, make sure to e-mails with invitations that come from such contacts. Do not accept invitations from strangers, because they can have major headaches. Yesterday I commented that the last time was considerably reduced the flow of spam on the web, but that does not mean they do not exist. Also, note that other threats of larger size, as TDL-4 (the indestructible virus), are distributed by porn sites or similar content.

In these days of security applications and devices has become a fundamental point . With so many hacks, attacks, vulnerability exploits, etc., Companies are working to provide applications to protect sensitive information from users . Or at least that’s what we believe.
Recently, the firm viaForensics
, one of the most important in regard to security, said that some of the more apps Android iOS popular and stored user passwords unencrypted
. We’re talking about LinkedIn, Foursquare and Netflix
, but not the only ones. The initial results of this study were announced on 6 June, and since then Foursquare updated their application is more secure . However, recent studies indicate that other data viaForensics are still vulnerable, as the search history . security firm also said that the version of IOS Square is one of the most vulnerable time, as various data stored unencrypted very important, as signatures, transaction amounts and the last four digits of credit cards that are used with the software.
As regards Netflix and LinkedIn still no official comments were made regarding the unsafe storage of data, but hopefully developers provide the necessary updates to avoid any inconvenience of gravity .
started the morning with some problems to Skype . This popular communication platform, recently acquired by Microsoft, recorded mostly in Europe inconvenience and left thousands of users without the possibility of logging into your account . At the moment it is unknown what were the causes of this problem.
Since the company has acknowledged the problem, although they have been very brief when addressing the public
. From the Twitter service account indicated that a “small number”
of users has been affected due to this failure, for the time being investigated to provide answers as soon as
The affected customers have not forgotten about Microsoft, and began firing at the Redmond firm in social networks . Twitter, as always, is which unites the largest flow of insults and complaints for Steve Ballmer and company. Recall that recently corporation founded by Bill Gates spent 8,500 million dollars to buy Skype .
From a blog service officers have not given too many details regarding failure. Heartbeat published in exactly the same as in the network of bird
: “Some of you may experience problems logging into Skype. We are investigating the cause and look forward to sharing more details soon, “
. According to data collected on the web now Skype has problems Spain, Portugal, Belarus, Croatia, Italy, Malaysia, Japan, Australia and Brazil
. Before any new development will keep you informed.
who grew up during the 1980 and 1990 always had a very bizarre dream: becoming RoboCop . Obviously most of us did not think the poor Alex Murphy and lived during the Calvary film being shot by a gang of criminals . only thing that mattered was the technology available to the “police robot” to catch the bad
. And now the semi-robotic experience for security officers is about to be partially converted into reality. It was recently confirmed that police Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo will have special glasses to track offenders
This innovation will begin to be implemented soon in order to perfect facing the Football World Cup 2014 and 2016 Olympic Games
. As indicated by experts, these glasses will feature advanced technology for detecting faces and allow arrest suspects in large crowds
glasses have a special camera that analyzes biometric 46 000 points and 400 faces per second, also having access to a database of more than 13 million people . But that’s not all, as this gadget worthy of RoboCop offers the possibility of remote monitoring using a zoom exceeding 19 km .
Anyway security agents will be no more than 50 meters from the large groups in which criminals can hide . The truth is a very good initiative, although it has sparked controversy over its viability in the event that people wear dark glasses, masks or have their faces painted .
