Yeah. Avast Free is very reliable and have been stable since I first used it. Does what it supposed to. All of my free setups have used Avast Free. As to Qihoo well have not really been convinced with it although the reviews are good and some of the malware testers use it too. To me still not gonna dive in with that crowd.

A saw a poll at another forum last 2015 and the top 3 FREE AV were:

1. Qihoo 360 Total Security (33.33%)
2. Avast Free Antivirus (29.7%)
3. Comodo Internet Security Premium (19.8%)


I have never used Qihoo 360 Total Security before but I have used Avast Free. I did not encounter an issue with scheduled scans on my Win 7 Ultimate x64 partition with Avast Free. The combination there is:

Avast Free + TinyWall + NVT_ERP + MBAE Premium + Zemana AntiMalware Free + Keyscrambler Premium

Among the free AV I used with that same combination was Avira Free and AVG Free. Last was AVG Free. I uninstalled AVG Free and installed Avast Free because since Avast has bought AVG it's not feasible anymore to run AVG as the engine will soon e incorporated.

Utilities / Acronis True Image 2017 Beta for Windows Program

Acronis True Image 2017 Beta for Windows Program

Acronis has released their 2017 version and are opening it to those who want to beta test the new release.

New in this version:

Local archiving—When you archive your old, large, or rarely used files, Acronis Cloud is not the
only possible destination. You can also select local storage, including NAS, an external hard drive,
or a USB flash drive. Your local archives are placed into Acronis Archive, which can be accessed in
File Explorer under Favorites, along with your cloud archive.

Archive encryption—To protect the archived data from unauthorized access, you can encrypt the
archive with industry-standard AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) cryptographic algorithm with
a 256-bit long key.

File search in backups—When you recover your data, you can use search to easily find a specific
file or folder in the selected backup. You can type the full file name or type a partial file name
and use common wildcard characters (* and ?).

Auto-detection of NAS devices—If you use NAS in your home network, Acronis True Image will
detect it and suggest backing up to this device. All NAS devices are detected correctly even
without Bonjour software installed on your computer.

Mobile device backup to local storage—If you have an iOS or Android smartphone or tablet, you
can protect your mobile data, such as photos, video files, contacts, and calendars. In addition to Acronis Cloud, you can now store your mobile backups in local storage on your computer. For this operation, you need to have Acronis True Image installed on your computer and the Acronis
True Image mobile app installed on your mobile device.

Improved user interface—Due to popular customer requests, the product interface was
improved and simplified. This includes sorting backups in the list, adaptation for NAS devices to
use as a backup destination, backup encryption indication, and other items.

Default sync removal—You can delete the default sync, as any other ordinary sync. It will not be
recreated automatically.

Automatic backup destination recognition—When Windows assigns a different drive letter to
the device that you use as a backup destination, the backup settings will not be broken. Acronis
True Image recognizes the device and continues the backup without errors.

Among the features that Acronis needs tested are:

1. Updated Archive feature (now with 256-bit AES encryption) which permits archiving of old/large files to locally connected storage(USB external hard drive/USB stick).
2. The search to find a specific file/folder within a backup "during" the recovery process.
3. Improved support for NAS devices as backup and archive location.
4. Wireless backup of your smartphone or tablet to your computer.
5. New interface(look and feel).

The Beta Program subscription also entitles you(the tester):

- subscription for 3 computers (PC or Mac) + 1 TB of Acronis Cloud Storage. No need to create a new Acronis Account. (You won't be able to upgrade or renew this subscription). The beta subscription doesn’t affect your current subscription.

You will need to visit the beta site, log-in to your Acronis account to access the serial and download details.

Warning! 32 Million Twitter Passwords May Have Been Hacked and Leaked

Our world today is FULL of data breaches soon it will be just a matter of time till anything can be breached IF we will not rethink our ways and try to find ways to be always more secure. Being secure and safe nowadays is a must and must be checked always also.

Swati Khandelwal of shares the details below as well as related story from

The world came to know about massive data breaches in some of the most popular social media websites including LinkedIn, MySpace, Tumblr, Fling, and when an unknown Russian hacker published the data dumps for sale on the underground black marketplace.
However, these are only data breaches that have been publicly disclosed by the hacker. I wonder how much more stolen data sets this Russian, or other hackers are holding that have yet to be released. The answer is still unknown, but the same hacker is now claiming another major data breach, this time, in Twitter.

Login credentials of more than 32 Million Twitter users are now being sold on the dark web marketplace for 10 Bitcoins (over $5,800).
LeakedSource, a search engine site that indexes leaked login credentials from data breaches, noted in a blog post that it received a copy of the Twitter database from Tessa88, the same alias used by the hacker who provided it hacked data from Russian social network last week.

The database includes usernames, email addresses, sometimes second email addresses, and plain-text passwords for more than 32 Million Twitter accounts. Twitter strongly denied the claims by saying that "these usernames and credentials were not obtained by a Twitter data breach" – their "systems have not been breached," but LeakedSource believed that the data leak was the result of malware.

"Tens of millions of people have become infected by malware, and the malware sent every saved username and password from browsers like Chrome and Firefox back to the hackers from all websites including Twitter," LeakedSource wrote in its blog post.

But, do you remember how Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Twitter account was compromised?

The hackers obtained Zuck's account credentials from the recent LinkedIn data breach, then broke his SHA1-hashed password string, tried on his several social media accounts and successfully hacked Zuckerberg’s Twitter and Pinterest account.

So, one possibility could also be that the alleged Twitter database dump of over 32 Million users is made up of already available records from the previous LinkedIn, MySpace and Tumblr data breaches.

The hacker might just have published already leaked data from other sites and services as a new hack against Twitter that actually never happened.
Whatever the reason is, the fact remain that hackers may have had their hands on your personal data, including your online credentials.
So, it’s high time you changed your passwords for all social media sites as well as other online sites if you are using the same password.

Russian hackers sell 33 million Twitter passwords online

Usernames and passwords of almost 33 million Twitter users have been obtained by a Russian hacker and put up for sale online.

The leak, which covers a tenth of Twitter’s users, comes after several high-profile Twitter accounts including Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and singer Katy Perry were broken into.

Twitter denied that its own security had been breached, but said it was checking to see if accounts had been compromised by other huge password leaks.

The data for sale online may have come from hackers checking Twitter usernames against email and password combinations from security breaches at Myspace and LinkedIn.

Millions of passwords from both social networks have been put up for sale on the dark web in recent weeks that were obtained in hacks that date back to 2011. Since many people re-use passwords across the web, a trial and error approach on other social networks could result in many successful attacks.

It is believed that trying LinkedIn and Myspace passwords on Twitter accounts is how several celebrity Twitter accounts have been hacked into over the last week.

A hacking group called OurMine accessed Zuckerberg's account this week, revealing that his password had been "dadada". Rock group Tenacious D's account was breached resulting in a Jack Black death hoax, and others including Lana Del Rey and Keith Richards were affected.

A spokesman for Twitter said it is "confident" that it hasn't been hacked.

"We are confident that these usernames and credentials were not obtained by a Twitter data breach – our systems have not been breached," the company said. "In fact, we’ve been working to help keep accounts protected by checking our data against what’s been shared from recent other password leaks."

Security blog LeakedSource said the data contained 32.9m records. The hacker is reportedly selling the data for 10 bitcoins (£4,000).

Richard Parris, head of cybersecurity company Intercede, said the incidents show that passwords are "no longer fit" for purpose.

"Passwords and usernames need to be consigned to the dusty archives of yesteryear," said Parris. "Online platforms hold masses of sensitive personal data about millions of consumers, and should not be relying on outdated password authentication."
