Infographic: The No. 1 Date Rape Drug is 100% Legal

The No. 1 Date Rape Drug is 100% Legal Blog Infographic: The No. 1 Date Rape Drug is 100% Legal In the wake of sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, the conversation has abruptly moved away from the misconduct allegations and towards the question of whether Kavanaugh drank too much (or even lied about it before the Senate Judiciary Committee). Earlier this summer, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford wrote a confidential letter to a senior Democratic lawmaker alleging that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her more than three deca...

Cultivate Awareness To Know Love

“When the robot mind is mastered, undisciplined thinking can and is replaced by awareness. Awareness can know love.” – Barry LongGoing through the day on automatic pilot is something most people can identify with at times. Who hasn’t felt like a zombie just going through the motions, trying to accomplish seemingly boring or repetitive tasks without giving them much thought? Letting our minds go elsewhere, not being in the moment – we’ve all done that, right? Well, we aren’t robots, so maybe this isn’t such a good idea. Maybe we should tune in, take a time out and think about the here and now. In essence, celebrate what it is to be human and to live in the present. This is called awareness.And it can lead to love.Powerful statement, to be sure, but there’s a certain element of truth to it. ...

Everything You Wanted to Know About Sex But Were Afraid to Ask

Robert Weiss, renowned expert on sex, relationships, infidelity, sexual addiction and other intimacy-related issues, will host a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) session Tuesday, July 19th at 10 am Pacific. As the “AMA” label suggests, Rob will answer any and all questions. Nothing is off limits.For instance, anyone who has ever wondered what sex addiction is, what it looks like, how it manifests and how it’s treated, now has a great opportunity to ask the guy who literally wrote the book on this subject whatever it is they’d like to know, including: How do I know if I’m a sex addict? What does “sexual sobriety” look like? Should my mate give me a free pass on cheating if I’m sexually addicted?This is also a great chance to talk about infidelity. If you’ve cheated and feel badly about it, or y...

Lessons from COVID-19 Cyberattacks: Where Do We Go Next?

We need to learn from the attacks and attempts that have occurred in order to prepare for the future.Cyber actors have shown us during the pandemic that they will let no opportunity go by without trying to take advantage. We've seen them prey upon the fear and concern around COVID-19 with phishing attacks, and capitalize on security weaknesses as organizations switched to remote work scenarios. And it's had a significant impact on security professionals' roles — a recent survey from (ISC)² found that 81% of respondents said their job function had changed during the pandemic. The upside of this is that there are lessons to learn from the types of attacks and attempts that have occurred that will help prepare organizations for the future.

Anatomy of a Long-Con Phish

A fraudster on LinkedIn used my online profile in an apparent attempt to pull off a wide-ranging scam business venture.Phishing is one of the oldest fraud techniques online. Phishers often utilize a spray-and-pray method to hit as many potential victims as possible. The aim of such an attack is quick profit via the harvesting of user login or banking credentials. Once the victim surrenders his/her valuable information, the phisher moves on, either to the next victim or a different campaign altogether. But some phishing attacks are entirely different. For the lack of a better term, I call them "long-con phishing." I was on the receiving end of one such phishing scam recently. In March, I received this LinkedIn message: ') } else document.write('') Even...

iOS 14 flags TikTok, 53 other apps spying on iPhone clipboards

In March, researchers Talal Haj Bakry and Tommy Mysk revealed that Android and iOS apps – including the mind-bogglingly popular, China-owned, video-sharing/often in privacy hot water TikTok – could silently, automatically read anything you copy into your mobile device’s clipboard. Sexy selfies? Passwords copied from your password manager? Bank account information? Bitcoin addresses? Yes, yes, scary yes, yes. Anything you’ve copied recently, they’ll paste it into themselves. Such data is typically used for advertising and tracking purposes. The covert content copying is possible not only for a device’s local data, but also on nearby devices, as long as the devices share the same Apple ID and are within about 10 feet of each other. That’s enabled by Apple’s universal clipboard: a cl...

Firefox 78 is out – with a mysteriously empty list of security fixes

Yesterday was both a Tuesday and four weeks since the last major Firefox update, making it the official release date for the latest version. There are now three mainstream flavours of Firefox to choose from: 68.10ESR, 78.0ESR and 78.0. ESR is short for Extended Support Release, often preferred by IT departments because it gets security fixes at the same rate as the regular version, but only takes on new features in a staggered fashion – in other words, users of the ESR versions are shielded from sudden switches in appearance, user interface and workflow. This time you can choose from 68.10ESR (the numbers to the left and right of the dot add up to the current major version number, in this case 78), which is Firefox with the look-and-feel of about a year ago plus 10 updates’ worth of ...

Google stops pushing scam ads on Americans searching for how to vote

You don’t have to pay to vote in the US. Up until recently, you wouldn’t have necessarily known that, were you to have run a Google search for how or where to vote. Such a search would have been polluted with scammy ads like this one offering “same-day processing” of voter registration for $129: Voting scam ad. IMAGE: Tech Transparency ProjectThat ad, which directs to a site from PrivacyWall.org, is the first ad in a Google search for “register to vote” that was run in an analysis done by watchdog Tech Transparency Project (TTP). On Monday, after it got called out by TTP, Google removed that kind of ad from search results. PrivacyWall’s CEO Jonathan Wu told Reuters that its service makes it easier for voters to register online without giving more data than is necessary, and that it...
