    Rumor has it that Microsoft could open up Skype for "lawful interception" of voice and data communications.Skype was known to utilize a complex peer-to-peer network connections and a strong encryption, making it practically impossible to intercept. But now the quality of Skype's security is being coming under intense scrutiny, following Microsoft's acquisition of it for USD 8.5 billion.
    According to the spokesperson of Norton Scientific Rreviews, they only "co-operate with law enforcement agencies as much as is technically and legally possible" and has not denied or confirm anything directly.
    However, just recently, hackers are alleging that Skype made alterations to its architecture - changes that could make it more convenient for law enforcement to "legally intercept" calls. Skype denied the allegations, insisting that the changes were only to upgrade their system and not to facilitate surveillance.Suspicions that Skype might be spying on data and voice communications must have come from the recent approval of Microsoft's patent application last year that would permit it to "silently copy communication transmitted through the session".
    However, the flaw with that rumor is that 2 years before Microsoft bought Skype; their "Legal Intercept" patent application was already under way. Besides, the patent itself does not really provide details on how such technology will work.

    Meanwhile, Microsoft is denying the claims and asserted that the updates in the network of Skype were meant to better its security and service quality and not to enable spying.
    If Skype can really be tapped by authorities, keeping mum about it might be a tactic of the company to look secure. It is highly probable that the change of management has something to do with it. Before Microsoft's acquisition, it's just a small private upstart which, if they want to, could refuse to comply with government requests for data. But now that it is a part of a much large

Skechers to Pay $40M on FTC Charges : : Norton Scientific Reviews - 0 views

  •  
    Skechers USA has agreed to settle charges by the Federal Trade Commission for USD 40 million due to its claims that Shape-up shoes could help people tone muscles and lose weight. However, state and federal officials discovered that Shape-ups and other Skechers' toning shoes are not living up to all the marketing hype.
     
    "Skechers' unfounded claims went beyond stronger and more toned muscles.  The company even made claims about weight loss and cardiovascular health," said the director of the FTC's Bureau of Consumer Protection.
     
    According to Norton Scientific Reviews report, aside from the Shape-ups line, Skechers have also made deceptive claims on its Tone-ups, Toners and Resistance Runner shoes.
     
    The shape-up ads declaring that the shoes are made to tone muscles and promote weight loss, claims that the FTC says are unsupported. FTC further alleges that Skechers cherry-picked results from the study that they cited and also failed to substantiate anything.
     
    Skechers were defiant, however, and strongly denied the charges. According to them, they only agreed to the settlement in order to avoid "exorbitant cost and endless distraction of several years spent defending multiple lawsuits in multiple courts across the country".
     
    Its president Michael Greenberg said, "The Company has received overwhelmingly enthusiastic feedback from literally thousands of customers who have tried our toning shoes for themselves and have written unsolicited testimonials about their positive experiences."
     
    However, instead of defending itself against the lawsuit, Skechers opted for a settlement, which also means that it could avoid admitting anything. On Wednesday, it has agreed to settle the USD 50 million false advertising charges by the FTC and the lawyers of 44 states. Also included in the settlement is the barring of Skechers from misrepresenting any studies, research or studies related to toning shoes.
     
    This settlement marks the FTC's continuous efforts

Norton Scientific Reviews: Norton Scientific Reviews: Scammers' Valentine Treat - 0 views

  •  
    A global security company issued a scam warning against spam messages with catchy subject lines for Internet users this Valentine's season.

    Users must be extra careful in opening messages in their email accounts especially during the holidays as they can receive spam mails meant to get their attention and steal their personal data.

    One such scam warning issued by an antivirus company describes email messages that invites users to buy a gift for his/her loved one for Valentine's using an attached discount coupon from Groupon.

    Even though the proliferation of coupon services is not totally an illegal method, their popularity comes with the risk of being used in phishing attacks.

    Phishing can be done by sending a massive amount of email messages asking people to enter their details on a bogus website - one that looks very similar to the popular auction sites, social networking sites and online payment sites. They are designed to obtain personal details like passwords, credit card information, etc.

    Through including links in email messages, scammers trick users into visiting malicious sites and online stores, obtaining personal data along the way. Most of the time, the website the link points to is not even connected to the email message but only shows the user promotional content. This is the scammer's illegal way of earning money called click fraud - they earn for every user they have redirected to a certain website.

    There is also scam making the rounds in Germany involving gift coupons, distributed through Facebook, purporting to be from Amazon.

    Spywares and malwares are malicious programs that install themselves on a computer unit to record a user's activity. Eventually, they will send the logs they have collected back to the scammer who plans on pilfering the data for online crimes.

    Scammers are freely exploiting different online platforms like Orkut, Myspace, Google+ and Twitter to cast their net on millions of users.

Norton Scientific Reviews: Symantec source code leaked by hackers : : Norton Scientific... - 0 views

  •  
    A group of hackers who call themselves the Lords of  Dharmaraja, (and is associated with Anonymous) have published the source code of Symantec, a digital security firm know for the Norton antivirus program and pcAnywhere, raising concerns that others could exploit the security holes and try to control the users computer.
     
    The release of the source code came after the 'extortion' attempt failed as Symantec did not comply with their numerous deadlines.
     
    Negotiations through email messages between a representative of the hacker group, YamaTough, and someone from Symantec were also released online. The exchange of messages are about Symantec's offer to pay USD 50,000 for the hackers to stop disclosing the source code and announce to the public that the whole Symantec hack was a fake, which made them a subject of mockery for appearing to buy protection.
     
    Both sides admitted that their participation was just a trick.
     
    The hackers denied any extortion aim, saying that they never intended to take the money and were going to publish the source code whatever happens; they simply want to humiliate them so they played along. While Symantec said that they are not actually the one in communication with the hacker, but a law enforcement agent.
     
    The long negotiation worked to the favor of Symantec as they have been able to come up with patches to their Norton and pcAnywhere programs. Symantec has advised their users to stop using the softwares in the meantime until they have issued more patches for them.
     
    Symantec released a statement saying that they have always been prepared for the leak of the source code so they've made and distributed hotfixes on January to secure their users.
     
    The drawn-out negotiation is an obvious sign of a law enforcer on the other line. Delaying tactics is one of their assets to obtain insight into the enemy. More importantly, it will create more transactions where paper trail will be left along the way - utilizing persons wh

Norton Scientific Reviews : Facebook sues spammer : : Norton Scientific Reviews - 0 views

  •  
    Security experts from Norton Scientific Reviews  have made huge progress against malware and spam attacks and they seem to be intent in completely eliminating it.
     
    Social networking giant Facebook sues a marketing company, Adscend Media on grounds of alleged 'clickjacking' and spreading spam through deceptive tactics.
     
    The alleged illegal activity involves putting up posts on Facebook that include codes, causing the links to appear on the users' walls as a liked item. Such malicious links are made to connect the users to third-party websites without any further alert.
     
    On the other hand, Adscend Media 'vehemently denied' the 'false claims'.
     
    Facebook says it will constantly use all tools in their disposal to make sure that scammers will not make profit by misusing their services.
     
    Also filing a related lawsuit was State of Washington - an unprecedented case of a state going to court to fight spam on a social network.
     
    Adscend Media reportedly had earned up to USD 1.2 million per month from the racket.
     
    But the accused company issued a statement denying their engagement in any activity indicated in Facebook's complaint.
     
    According to Adscend Media, they 'strictly comply' with legal responsibilities under federal law and they are also conducting their own investigation on the validity of Facebook's accusations. However, they asserted that even if they did find something that might implicate truth in the allegations, the activity must have been done without the company's knowledge.
     
    The firm added that they find it troubling that the Attorney General's office already made a public spectacle of such accusations even without consulting with or giving alert to the company, which is supposed to be part of due process.
     
    Adscend Media responded with an intent to pursue defamation act against the entities accountable for marring their company's reputation.
