Scam Alert: Don’t Fall For This Facebook ‘Friend Request From You’ Message | by Putnam Daily Voice

Been receiving messages from my Facebook friends that they received another friend request from me and noticed others have been receiving this as well.  Did some research on this and found that this is all BOGUS. Just stop doing it and disregard those messages…  You can read more on this by clicking on the source link below or Google it (numerous sources out there on this matter).

You can stop forwarding that latest warning from your Facebook friends about your account being cloned. You weren’t. It’s bogus. And you’re just making it worse. It starts out:

“Hi….I actually got another friend request from you yesterday…which I ignored so you may want to check your account…” Then it tells you to “hold your finger on the message until the forward button appears…then hit forward….” Your account isn’t sending duplicate friend requests. And you didn’t receive a request from the person you’re forwarding it to.

This is a Guest Post by Allen Jame, who is a follower of “What’s On My PC”. Thank you Allen for sharing your expertise on Satellite Internet Security with my readers…

Satellite communication is referred to as one of the most popular communication technology used for global communication.

Its applications are vast. Military intelligence, Broadband internet service, and weather forecasting are its some most popular applications.

The satellite dish network internet Wi-Fi is supposed to be the best solution for getting internet in the rural areas.

Although its advantages are vast still security in the satellite communication is a significant concern.

There are many limitations. For example, power control, high link delay, and link availability are some of the standard security issues on the satellite internet.

During the satellite communication, protections of the links and the satellites are not enough. Sound integrity and the confidentiality of the downlink earth stations is also a significant concern.

Kaspersky’s Antivirus For FREE Soon Rolling Out

I have known Kaspersky’s Antivirus to be one of the best when it comes to computer security (however, at a price — not FREE). Soon you will be able to get a baseline version of Kaspersky’s Antivirus for FREE. This new development by Kaspersky’s (according to ZDNet) is apparently in light of the U.S. Government removing Kaspersky Lab from two lists of approved vendors used by government agencies to purchase technology equipment. Apparently, this is amid concerns the Russian-based company’s products could be used by the Kremlin to gain entry into United States networks.

The removal of Kapersky’s from the vendors list follows the accusations from US intelligence agencies that Russia hacked into Democratic Party emails, thus helping Donald Trump to election victory, despite President Vladimir Putin proclaiming his country has never engaged in hacking activities, but some “patriotic” individuals may have.

Ok, now that you have digested this, is it safe to install the free version of Kaspersky’s on our home-based computer systems? Personally, I am not installing it and will stick to the free version of BitDefender; however, if you are interested in the FREE version, click on the source link below to monitor for its’ release. Reportedly, the free version will rollout to the U.S. first…

If you do opt to give this a try, make sure you remove (uninstall) any antivirus software that is currently existing on your computer. Typically, to remove antivirus software, it is best practices to visit the website of the product and look for an uninstaller that will completely and safely remove the antivirus software from your PC.
