Online Security

leave a comment »

Earlier today in the office a colleague of mine shouted out for help. He said he received an email telling him  that his Facebook profile has been compromised. Someone was accessing it, and worse changed the Email for the user. With the help of another colleague who is an expert on online security and computers, they were able to sort it out.
We also had a similar experience from my previous company. However the email was a malicious one. First it says that your Facebook account has been hacked/compromised. And you need to click on a link, or download something. One guy opened it, and there a spyware was infesting his system. I was able to fix his spyware temporarily.

Energy Saving Light

leave a comment »

Yesterday we bought 6 energy saving light bulbs. It costs a little bit more than the normal ones, but it was 100+lumens brighter and approx 60% less wattage.

Our normal bulbs are at 40watts, now they are 13watts. And we replaced all 6 of them.

Our contribution to the planet. 🙂 They also come in a nice box made of recycled paper (i think)
