Microsoft Just Released An Antivirus App For Macs

Microsoft Defender for Mac finds a malicious file during a scan (Microsoft)

Microsoft’s Iaan D’Souza-Wiltshire penned an announcement heralding the debut of Microsoft Defender for Mac. It’s essentially the same app as Windows Defender on Windows 10. The name needed a tweak, of course, since it’s built for machines that aren’t running Microsoft’s own operating system.

Microsoft Defender offers Mac users the same kind of protection that its Windows counterpart offers Windows users. It provides real-time detection of threats, performs on-demand scans of USB drives, and automatically keeps malware definitions and detection logic up-to-date.

For now, Microsoft Defender is only available as a limited preview. It’s the first step in bringing a whole new group of users under Microsoft’s Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) umbrella.

Surprised to see Microsoft releasing an app like this for Mac computers? Don’t be.

Just a few months ago we saw a similarly unexpected announcement from Microsoft. The browser that had been purpose-built for Windows 10, Edge, was being torn down and rebuilt and would use the same code that powers Google Chrome for a foundation.

Then Microsoft doubled down on the surprise factor. Not only would the new Edge browser use Google code, but it was also going to run on Macs. Microsoft last released a web browser that ran on Macs way back in 2003.

The two companies have been fierce competitors on numerous fronts over the years, but there have also been some surprising collaborations. The most famous was when Microsoft saved Apple from possible bankruptcy in 1997 with a $150 million investment.

Really, if you wanted to put a social networking label on the relationship between Microsoft and Apple, you’d have to go with “it’s complicated.” Battling the threat of global malware is complicated, too, and it’s great to see that Microsoft isn’t going to let a little rivalry get in the way of that mission.

Lee started writing about software, hardware, and geek culture around the time that the Red Wings last won the Stanley Cup. The two aren’t related in any way, however. When he’s not catching up on tech news or blogging about it, you can find him watching or playing baseball and doing his part to ensure the next generation of geeks is raised properly.

How Hackers Bypass Gmail 2FA at Scale – Joseph Cox

1.jpeg

If you’re an at risk user, that extra two-factor security code sent to your phone may not be enough to protect your email account. Hackers can bypass these protections, as we’ve seen with leaked NSA documents on how Russian hackers targeted US voting infrastructure companies. But a new Amnesty International report gives more insight into how some hackers break into Gmail and Yahoo accounts at scale, even those with two-factor authentication (2FA) enabled.

They do this by automating the entire process, with a phishing page not only asking a victim for their password, but triggering a 2FA code that is sent to the target’s phone. That code is also phished, and then entered into the legitimate site so the hacker can login and steal the account. The news acts as a reminder that although 2FA is generally a good idea, hackers can still phish certain forms of 2FA, such as those that send a code or token over text message, with some users likely needing to switch to a more robust method.

“Virtually in that way they can bypass any token-based 2FA if no additional mitigations are implemented” Claudio Guarnieri, a technologist at Amnesty, told Motherboard in an online chat. 2FA is adding another layer of authentication onto your account. With token-based 2FA, you may have an app that generates a code for you to enter when logging in from an unknown device, or, perhaps most commonly, the service will send a text message containing a short code that you then type into your browser.

WP Link Shield Diamond

1

WP Linkshield found that EVERY single link cloaker tested broke responsive sites. Considering that 60% of us use mobile devices nowadays .That’s a HUGE problem and a huge amount of profit lost.

If you’re not cloaking links you are not safe either , you are leaving up to 30% of sales on the table through, affiliate theft, browser switching and social blocking. WHAT IS THIS BUG EXACTLY? Before I explain that I need to explain cloaking modes…

There are 2 main cloaking modes –

1 REDIRECT CLOAKING – this is most common type – you get a new URL and it redirects to the original URL – problem here is… this doesn’t hide your affiliate ID and you lose money if the user switches browsers or shares the raw link

2 IFRAME CLOAKING – with this method the URL never changes and the destination page is loaded in an IFRAME so your affiliate ID is never exposed and you don’t lose money through browser switching…

Iframing is great for affiliates as you can overlay messages, you can kick exit pops – it gives you a lot more control and reduced commission losses.However the vendors of cloaking tools have never looked at what happens when users open responsive sites in iframe mode – the answer is RESPONSIVE SITES BREAK! This boils down to BAD CODING …

WP Link Shield 2.0 protects your affiliate links, makes your links look natural, allows you to post them socially with full metas and maximizes your affiliate income- a no brainer for ALL affiliate marketers

HERE’S WHAT IT DOES

– it works perfectly with responsive sites (99% of other cloakers break mobile sites)
– it never displays the raw link in the browser unlike conventional cloakers
– It prevents commission loses through browser switching and link sharing
– it allows you to edit meta images and descriptions to maximize social clicks.
– It allows you to block exit pops
– it works flawlessly on all social media – many cloakers fail
– it makes your affiliate links look 100% natural increasing clicks
– it maintains your site branding with your choice of keywords
– it’s super easy to use

In a nutshell WP Linkshield 2 works to reduce commission loses and maximize your affiliate income.
