Security Breaches On the Rise

Not a day goes by where I don’t see another warning…

  • Brute Force Attack on WordPress Underway. Details >>>
  • Breakin at Streaming Media company Vudu Compromises Customer Info. Details >>> 
  • Dropbox Used as Conduit Into Your Computer. Details >>>
  • Hacker Can Hijack a Plane in Flight using an Android App. Details >>>
  • Professional Canon Cameras Breached – Used for Clandestine Surveilance. Details >>>

My own camera? They can even turn my own camera against me!?

Yes, they can.

I suppose one could become completely paranoid over this security thing. But I’d rather go overboard in protecting myself than become the proverbial sitting duck.
