As we take a deeper look at phishing across the OpenDNS network to better protect you and yours, we've uncovered some interesting patterns about the way Americans interact with phishing emails.

According to data from ConstantContact, a large email marketing company, the volume of email sent is highest between 10 AM and 2 PM. That means the volume of phishing emails in the morning might not be attributable only to the fact that phishing emails are being sent in the morning. So what it is about the morning hours that's got so many of us fooled?

Every few weeks there's a new scam that makes the rounds on Facebook. This week it's the "Find out who visits your profile," scam, which we've all seen before.

The reason it piques my interest this time is the sheer volume of people falling victim. That coupled with the fact that the victims include some of my more tech-savvy Facebook friends made me want to understand better what exactly the virus is trying to do and how we can all protect ourselves.

What's especially worrisome about Epsilon's announcement is that it wasn't only email addresses that were accessed. In some cases, names were also connected to these email addresses. With a name and an email address, there's a high potential to be spear p

What's spear phishing? It's a phish that's especially targeted to you. Instead of a mass email sent to everyone on a scammers list, a spear phish is targeted to you directly. It might address you by name, for example, or even look like it's sent from a friend or family member. Phishes of this type can be especially tricky to identify, but by taking some extra precaution you can outsmart these Internet scammers.

Late last week, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) gave final approval to a new top-level domain, or TLD. It's one that people have been debating, proposal, advocating for, and advocating against for years - .XXX.

Over the past 11 years, .XXX has been proposed and voted on a number of times. And while it still isn't clear when and how .XXX will be implemented, it's certainly of interest to those of us in the DNS and Web content filtering space. Here are some initial thoughts...

At first glance, this seems like a real email from Google. Since I'm the guy who manages our AdWords campaign, I'm actually starting to get a little curious - did our ads turn off without my knowledge overnight?

When the study's researchers surveyed adult websites, they found that many were aimed at "manipulating and misleading a visitor to perform actions that result in an economic profit" for the Web site.

Free sites used these tactics 34 percent of the time, while paid sites used them 11 percent of the time. What types of tactics are we talking about? According to the study, methods include: * Javascript catchers that hijack the user's browser, making it difficult to leave a site. * Blind and hidden links that prevent an address from being displayed in a web browser's status bar. This can be used to mask malicious activities, like cross site scripting or cross site request forgery attempts. * Redirection scripts that redirect users to different websites. This occurs on a server, so there's no way for a user to know it might happen until they click. * Malware that triggers malicious behavior including "code execution, registry changes, or executable downloads."

When I was young, I vividly remember a wise man sharing a proverb with me: "Locks are for honest people." The memory is so vivid because it completely confused me ... "If everyone was honest, there would be no need for locks," I thought, naively.

As it turns out, everyone isn't honest, and if "locks keep honest people honest," they don't do anything to/for dishonest people. That paradox lingered in the back of my mind, and a few years later, I found myself using some sideways logic to justify learning the mechanics of lock picking. I ordered my first set of lock picks (with instruction booklet) for around $10 online. When the package arrived, I scrambled to unwrap it like Ralphie unwrapped the "Red Ryder" BB gun in "A Christmas Story," and I set out to find my first lock to pick. After a few unsuccessful attempts, I turned to the previously discarded instruction booklet, and I sat down to actually learn what I was supposed to be doing. That bit of study wound up being useful; with that knowledge, I managed to pick my first lock.

SoftLayer has a dedicated team working around the clock to address complaints of abuse on our network.

We receive these complaints via feedback loops from other providers, spam blacklisting services such as Spamcop and Spamhaus, various industry contacts and mailing lists. Some of the most valuable complaints we receive are from our users, though. We appreciate people taking the time to let us know about problems on our network, and we find these complaints particularly valuable as they are non-automated and direct from the source. It stands to reason that the more efficient people are at reporting abuse, the more efficient we can be at shutting down the activity, so I've compiled some tips and resources to make this process easier.

As a hobby, I dabble in WordPress, so I thought I'd share a few security features I use to secure my WordPress blogs as soon as they're installed.

Nothing in this blog will be earth-shattering, but because security is such a priority, I have no doubt that it will be useful to many of our customers. Often, the answer to the question, "How much security do I need on my site?" is simply, "More," so even if you have a solid foundation of security, you might learn a new trick or two that you can incorporate into your next (or current) WordPress site.

I can't help but think of these parodies when I think about the effects that SOPA would have had if it passed as law...

The first business to die a slow, horrible and expensive death as a result of the legislation might have been Google. Because it's connected to virtually every website on the planet (legitimate and non-legitimate alike), the amount of time spent severing connections to sites in any way related to a site that was merely assumed to be performing illegal activities would stall Google's growth and innovation endeavors. This would cause thousands of people to lose their jobs ... And it's not out of the question to think one or two of those people might start a riot.
