Don’t Keep Your Personal or Financial data on a Windows 10 Machine! / ConsumerWatch / Microsoft

By: Paul_Behan

Well not if you want to keep it private. Like many people I was surprised at the Edward Snowden revelations a few years ago. Nothing has seemed to change and in many cases things have got worse. Some corporations are in partnership with government agencies in regard to collection of data. Whilst the government has the right to collect data to try and protect is citizens from harm, in my opinion this data collections has gone way too far and is now breaching personal liberties.

At the start of November with winter fast approaching and the temperature starting to drop, I decided it was time to get a decent set of ladders to enable me to complete a whole host of maintenance tasks before winter and after much searching settled on a large 12 rung Triple Extension Ladder supplied by the online retailer TrueShopping.co.uk, that could also be used as double extension step ladder though which lacked adequate online customer reviews though I did not think it would make much material difference to products such as ladders.

Sophisticated Smartphone Hacking: 36 Million Euros Banking Theft / ConsumerWatch / Scams

By: DK_Matai

A sophisticated digital attack involving smart mobile phones has been used to steal 36 million euros or 47 million dollars from corporate and private banking customers across Europe.  The attack appears to have emanated from cybercrime servers in the Ukraine.  Android and Blackberry mobile devices have been specifically targeted, showing that attacks against Android devices are now a growing trend.  A new customised version of the Trojan spyware application "Zeus" called "ZITMO" or "Zeus-In-The-MObile" has been deployed, which security companies have called Eurograbber.  This enables a two-stage Trojan virus attack to progress that spreads from a victim’s Personal Computer or PC to their mobile telephone.  Eurograbber marks the first such case of PC-to-mobile Trojan malware targeted specifically at online banking.  More than 30,000 online banking customers in Germany, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands have been affected by this attack.

Payday Loans the Next Ponzi Subprime Debt Bubble to Implode? / ConsumerWatch / Debt & Loans

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The Office of Fair Trading some several years behind the curve has finally announced an investigation into the aggressive debt collection practices of the largely unregulated payday loans industry that has mushroomed over the past 4 years to stand at over 240 providers, all competing against one another to increasingly lend money to those that cannot afford to repay the loans in what appears to be a classic Ponzi scheme-esk structure where loans are usually given to individuals without any background checks that are increasingly for the purpose of repaying loans taken out from other payday lenders, and then again and again which means that payday lenders are effectively paying one another resulting in what is a growing Ponzi pyramid primed for collapse.
