Viruses And Threats

Today, many people rely on computers to do homework, work, and create or store useful information. Therefore, it is important for the information on the computer to be stored and kept properly. It is also extremely important for people on computers to protect their computer from data loss, misuse, and abuse. For example, it is crucial for businesses to keep information they have secure so that hackers can’t access the information. Home users also need to take means to make sure that their credit card numbers are secure when they are participating in online transactions. A computer security risk is any action that could cause loss of information, software, data, processing incompatibilities, or cause damage to computer hardware, a lot of these are planned to do damage. An intentional breach in computer security is known as a computer crime which is slightly different from a cybercrime. A cybercrime is known as illegal acts based on the internet and is one of the FBI’s top priorities. There are several distinct categories for people that cause cybercrimes, and they are refered to as hacker, cracker, cyberterrorist, cyberextortionist, unethical employee, script kiddie and corporate spy.

The Hacker.

The term hacker was actually known as a good word but now it has a very negative view. A hacker is defined as someone who accesses a computer or computer network unlawfully. It’s basically an evil hacker. They access it with the intent of destroying, or stealing information. They would usually send a company a very threatening email stating that they will release some confidential information, exploit a security leak, or launch an attack that will harm a company’s network. They will request a paid sum of money to prevent the threat from being carried out, a bit like black mailing.

The Unethical Employee.

An unethical employee is an employee that illegally accesses their company’s network for numerous reasons. One could be the money they can get from selling top secret information, or some may be bitter and want revenge.

The Script Kiddie.

A script kiddie is someone who is like a cracker because they may have the intentions of doing harm, but they usually lack the technical skills. They are usually silly teenagers that use prewritten hacking and cracking programs. The Corporate Spy.

A corporate spy has extremely high computer and network skills and is hired to break into a specific computer or com ugg boots clearance puter network to steal or delete data and information. Shady companies hire these type people in a practice known as corporate espionage. They do this to gain an advantage over their competition an illegal practice.

Business and home users must do their best to protect or safeguard their computers from security risks. The next part of this article will give some pointers to help protect your computer. However, one must remember that there is no one hundred percent guarantee way to protect your computer so becoming more knowledgeable about them is a must during these days.

When you transfer information over a network it has a high security risk compared to information transmitted in a business network because the administrators usually take some extreme measures to help protect against security risks. Over the internet there is no powerful administrator which makes the risk a lot higher. If your not sure if your computer is vulnerable to a compu ugg boots clearance ter risk than you can always use some type of online security service which is a website that checks your computer for email and Internet vulnerabilities. The company will then give some pointers on how to correct these vulnerabilities.

The Computer Emergency Response Team Coordination Center is a place that can do this. The typical network attacks that pu ugg boots clearance ts computers at risk includes viruses, worms, spoofing, Trojan horses, and denial of service attacks. Every unprotected computer is vulnerable to a computer virus which is a potentially harming computer program that infects a computer negatively and altering the way the computer operates without the user’s consent. Once the virus is in the computer it can spread throughout infecting other files and potentially damaging the operating system itself.

It’s similar to a bacteria virus that infects humans because it gets into the body through small openings and can spread to other parts of the body and can cause some damage. The similarity is, the best way to avoid is preparation. A computer worm is a program that repeatedly copies itself and is very similar to a computer virus. However the difference is that a virus needs to attach itself to an executable file and become a part of it. A computer worm doesn’t need to do that, it copies itself to other networks and eats up a lot of bandwidth.

A Trojan Horse named after the famous Greek myth and is used to describe a program that secretly hides and actually looks like a legitimate program but is a fake. A certain action usually triggers the Trojan horse, and unlike viruses and worms it will not replicate itself. Computer viruses, worms, and Trojan horses are all classified as ugg boots clearance malicious logic programs which are just programs that deliberately harm a computer. Although these are the common three there are many more variations and it would be almost impossible to list them. You know when a computer is infected by a virus, worm, or Trojan horse if your computer displays one or more of these things:

Screen shots of weird messages or pictures appear.

You have less available memory than you expected.

Music or sounds plays randomly.

Files get corrupted.

Programs are files don’t work properly.

1 When an individual runs an infected program so if you download a lot of things you should always scan the files before executing, especially executable files.

2 When an individual boots a computer with an infected drive, so that is why it’s important to not leave removable media in your computer when you shut it down.

ugg boots clearance Virtual train to ease commuter

Virtual train to ease commuter pain

Anybody who catches a metropolitan train in peak hour knows that the jostling of elbows, dirty l ugg boots clearance ooks and enforced physical intimacy with complete strangers is one of the less pleasant aspects of city living, a challenge for commuters and public transport operators alike.

At the heart of the issue is carriage design. The same carriages that comfortably seat travellers at off peak times must also squeeze i ugg boots clearance n the rush hour crush, when each seat with its luxurious room for bottoms, knees and bags takes the space of two or three standing passengers.

“Melbourne is a rapidly growing city and we are continually accommodating larger numbers on our transport network. We’ve altered seating arrangements on some of our fleet to accommodate more people during peaks and we actively try to reduce dwell times at our stations to keep trains moving as quickly as possible,” a Metro spokesperson says.

But seat removal can compromise comfort during off peak hours. It is a paradox that requires a design solution, and one is being developed by industrial designer Selby Coxon, deputy head of the Department of Design at Monash University in Melbourne just one city among many cities in which rail efficiency is a public gripe.

Mr Coxon has designed an entirely new train carriage that can automatically adjust to peak and off peak loads. His answer, developed as part of a PhD project, is “peak doors” two extra doors that would operate during peak hour only, with folding seats behind them that would automatically lock away to create standing room.

“They’re very visually different to the other doors, so that people in off peak periods will realise that these are non functioning and will find their way to the three operating doors,” Mr Coxon says. His carriage design creates extra space when needed and also seeks to improve boarding and alighting times, which generally have to be no longer than 20 seconds if timetables are to be met.

“In peak time, if that boarding time extends, the next train also has to wait. And that backlog is part of the reason trains sometimes get stuck between stations,” Mr Coxon says.

Another cause of inefficiency at stations is that people will often stand at a doorway, blocking the area, out of fear of being pushed further down the carriage and not being able to get off at their stop. Mr Coxon’s design regulates people movement into a two way flow. Signage and colour coding would encourage people to keep to their left when boarding or alighting. A central column holding the locked away seats behind the peak period doors would act as a “crowd splitter”, a common device in crowd management.

Dr Majid Sarvi, a crowd specialist from Monash University’s Department of Civil Engineering, has contributed his expertise in station design and crowd behaviour and dispersal. His extensive work with mathematical modelling of crowd movements has been incorporated into a computer program developed by researchers from the Faculty of Information Technology.

The program, which uses a game engine, has up to 200 virtual humans whose task is to board the train carriage and find a seat. Those who miss out then compete for the best standing position.

Hundreds of virtual humans inside a computer program are the avatar stars of a design project aiming to improve passenger rail services through a modifiable train carriages.

Dev ugg boots clearance eloper Elliott Wilson, who teaches in the faculty, says the number of people who are already seated in the carriage can be adjusted, along with the numbers boarding and alighting.

“We’re testing the parameters of the carriage with elements everyone can recognise people and train spaces and shuffling for seats,” says Mr Wilson, who is in an IT project team led by animator Dr Tom Chandler.

Some randomness has also been built into the program, including where people appear on the platform and how long each individual spends looking for a seat. This means that the boarding pattern and duration will differ each time the test is run as in real life.

And while the actual train carriage is still theoretical, Mr Coxon feels his peak doors could herald a new d ugg boots clearance irection in train design one that responds to the growing demands on public transport while still offering some respite for the travel weary commuter.
