IMHO sensational: A working, usable office suite online!

Yahoo! Mail users urged to change passwords to something secure and unique (on Yahoo)

after security breach and theft of account login details!

Yahoo! serves virus infected Ads! No risk for my customers, they all have Adblock Plus!
I have said it thousands of times: Do not use Yahoo_anything.

SpyEye's creator arrested in Georgia. Worst banking trojan ever decapitated.

FileZilla FTP client versions 3.7.3 and 3.5.3 proven to be virus infected.

An epidemic of a new kind of malware; see:
       PuPs - No Virus But just as Nasty  and
       How Malware Gets Installed

Many more scam phone calls claiming computer infections.
Microsoft (and MS affiliates) do not know about us!
Do not let them work on your computer!
Do not give them any credit card information!

Intel will drop McAfee name and software sometime this year. Finally...

Many more scam emails claiming undeliverable packages, renewals of all sorts, product keys
et al.

Windows 8.1 IMHO only cosmetics. Pressure to create a Microsoft account much increased!

Neiman Marcus: 1.1 million cards stolen!
2,400 were abused quickly for fraudulent purchases.
POS terminals were virus infected!
Win XP? Your risk of virus infection is MUCH higher that of Win7/ 8 – for now.
Micro$oft will support Security Essentials on XP until July 14 2015!
Just shy of 30% PCs worldwide still on XP

Apple released major security updates. Who says Apple MACs are safe?

Good advice Eike.
Twice now I have been contacted by a guy who claimed that my computer was infected and randomly sending out viruses. Even though he seemed very persistent that I log on to my computer so he could take a look from his remote location, I refused. When he kept on trying to get me to do what he wanted me to do I just told him no thanks and hung up. A day later my wife answered another call from the same person (same caller ID) she told him "F___ you!" and slammed the phone down. Thanks so much for your website and your WTKM Talking Points.
