Waterfall by Jex-LumiKhoth
Waterfall
A scene that I've been working on for awhile in Blender, not entirely happy with how everything came out, but eh, not all that bad, I might go back and try to re-do or fix some things in the future, I'll probably reupload the picture if I ever do.

New dangerous Malware

I imagine that alot of people out there have already heard about this, but just in case you haven't, there's an apparent new malware thing out there that comes in pairs, the names that I've seen for it are GameOver Zeus and CryptoLocker.  They're distributed through the typical important official looking e-mails from wherever.

GameOver Zeus is a keylogger, it'll monitor your keystrokes for bank passwords and account names and the like, once this is done CryptoLocker is activated which then proceeds to encrypt the files on your computer, and the creator of the malware holds them at ransom.  Once infected, your computer joins the network in spreading the malware.

The network has, however, been temporarily broken and there is a very small window two-week window to ensure that your computer is secure, FBI, Europol, and the UK's National Crime Agency, the ones that broke the network, have said that after this window they suspect the criminal will potentially unleash a large scale cyber-attack.

What was shown to me as recommendations to secure your computer are:

Up-to-date security that checks download links and e-mail attachments, this is vital to have in protecting yourself from this.

Update your Operating System.  The latest version of your OS would of course have better security.

Back up your system and files, it will help to make CryptoLocker less of a threat.

And lastly, using a 2-Step Authentication.  This last step is something that requires randomly generated codes to confirm online purchases and transfers.

All the information I've stated here can be found via this link, this is where I got the information

Snopes report on CryptoLocker

Snopes report on GameOver Zeus

Last two links provided by Kirona  Thank them for the links, and stuff.

There's not too much to say about myself, aside from the fact that I write. In my opinion, my stories are crap, but the people who read and comment on them seem to like the stories, so I can't complain.

If you look outside, there should be a case of Molson Canadian.
Not responsible for damages along the trip.

I had no other options, just threw it in the wind with a parachute.

Though...

I don't think it would of deployed, as the case of beer has no limbs.

Yeah, an automatic deploying parachute would have been a better idea.  Though it did, somehow, reach here safely.  I must thank you.
