The amount of malware in the world can be counted in many different ways. Here at F-Secure Labs, we prefer a more conservative approach to enumerate threats.

Let me recycle a few lines from the post on Martin Dempsey phoning Terry Jones because this is where I think we're headed, at least as long as American troops are stationed in large numbers in the Middle East:

"Loyola's right that military leaders phoning citizens to ask them to pipe down for the sake of the troops sets a bad precedent. If more copycats do emerge, will Dempsey phone all of them? Will the Pentagon set up a special phone bank for officers to phone critics of Islam and let them know that they're hurting national security by giving fundie nuts a pretext to make trouble? If we're going down this road, let's just establish a PR bureau inside the Defense Department to issue official statements of patriotic disapproval anytime a U.S. citizen says something that's unhelpful to the wider strategy in the Middle East."

Remember those taxpayer-funded commercials with kindly Andy Griffith - the ones that promoted the ways the so-unaptly-titled Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act supposedly strengthens Medicare?

Donald Berwick, director of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, says these ads are fundamentally different than the Andy Griffith ads, even though they also use taxpayer funding to tout the still-highly-controversial law. "Everyone is interested in prevention," he said. "I don't think this is a partisan issue." But even if that's true - that most people recognize preemptive care goes a long way to lower costs - does that mean it's the federal government's responsibility to provide, advertise and urge preventive services on the public?

A flaw in Samsung Smart TVs was discovered that could allow hackers to control the camera and watch users in their living rooms.

Today's high-end televisions are almost all equipped with "smart" PC-like features, including Internet connectivity, apps, microphones and cameras. But a recently discovered security hole in some Samsung Smart TVs shows that many of those bells and whistles aren't ready for prime time. The flaws in Samsung Smart TVs, which have now been patched, enabled hackers to remotely turn on the TVs' built-in cameras without leaving any trace of it on the screen. While you're watching TV, a hacker anywhere around the world could have been watching you. Hackers also could have easily rerouted an unsuspecting user to a malicious website to steal bank account information.

How to Win at Voting. Here's a sad truth: if you're going to vote in the 2012 election because you're afraid the Right Candidate won't win (or the Wrong Candidate will) if you don't, then you're wasting your time.

The probability that you die in an auto accident driving to the polling place is higher than the probability that you cast the decisive ballot. I'll be blunt: if you vote for Obama because you're afraid of a Republican win, or if you vote for the Republican because you're afraid of an Obama win, then you're wasting your time. You're also wasting your vote. You've probably heard the claim that politics is too partisan, too nasty, and too disingenuous. This is perhaps to be expected; to paraphrase the philosopher Jason Brennan (whose excellent The Ethics of Voting I just reviewed for Public Choice and will discuss here in greater detail later), elections encouraged civilized conversation and thoughtful, reasoned reflection the way fraternity parties encourage temperance and sobriety. This is especially true of Presidential elections.

Successful recovery from a WordPress disaster depends on planning ahead. Having a plan that includes these pieces of information can make recovery easier.

I didn't sleep very well last night. No, it wasn't because of a barking dog, a crying child, or my WordPress website had been hacked. We had a very rough storm roll through - complete with lightning, thunder, a tornado warning, and more rain that we've had in a single night in quite a while. While laying awake watching the storm, what I usually do so my family can sleep uninterrupted, I got to thinking about where all of our important papers were and how easily we could locate them in the event of a natural disaster.

ENID, Okla. - Youth and Family Services of Enid will begin helping the state of Oklahoma find homes for hundreds of foster children.

In August 2013, DHS privatized foster care and selected four contractors, three from Kansas and one from Oklahoma, to find foster homes. After a year, the two agencies responsible for rural Oklahoma have recruited less than 40 percent of the number of foster-care homes needed.

Numerous studies, both here and in other parts of the country, have highlighted the struggles of youth who age out of foster care, finding they are more likely to be homeless, unemployed, under-educated and in jail.

One report released this month found nearly 60 percent of young men had been convicted of a crime, compared with 10 percent of young men who had never been in foster care. For women, three-quarters were on public assistance by age 24.

Site limits 'Innocence of Muslims' in Islamic countries but allows video of lethal attack on American base.

"Those who came here insulting Islam and the Koran, I will take revenge on them," said a Taliban suicide bomber with a chilling smile. Moments later he drove a truck loaded with 10,000 kg of explosives into U.S. Forward-Operating Base Salerno in Khost, Afghanistan, killing two U.S. soldiers. It was all captured on a Taliban propaganda video narrated by an Al Jazeera reporter. It's currently available for anyone to see on YouTube. More shocking, the Taliban have their own YouTube channel, though it is mostly dormant.
