a proper firewall is an added layer of protection. thought it would be safe to post my first time here. ;)

sadly the best software firewall has gone belly up. outpost by agnitum did the job better than any i've seen before or after.
Yep, Outpost was my favorite firewall too. It was sad to see them go. :(

Hackers have turned autofill into a weapon – a feature originally created with the good intentions of sparing users from tedious, repetitive tasks.

Convenience has a price. When it comes to automatically filling information into browser text boxes, users may be giving away more information than they realize. And that information may end up in the hands of hackers.

Cybercriminals have found ways to exploit the Apple Safari, Microsoft Opera and Google Chrome browsers, as well as plugins such as the LastPass password manager, to capture phone numbers, addresses, credit card details, login credentials and other private information. It’s one of the many web-bases schemes that hackers have concocted to rip off users.

This is a good read although there is no info about Windows IE which can be disable in Internet Options/ Content/AutoComplete Settings.

Microsoft may stop providing security updates to users of Microsoft Windows 7 and 8.1 if they use PCs with the latest processors.

Microsoft seems poised to introduce a controversial and unorthodox new ‘support’ policy that will block security updates for users of Windows 7 and 8.1 if they use PCs with the latest processors.

Computers powered by new processors from AMD, Intel and Qualcomm will be blocked from receiving security updates for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, notes the support document.
