A Cincinnati man recently agreed to pay $1.9 million to settle charges with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for his involvement in a scheme that allegedly tricked more than one million individuals into buying rogue anti-virus products.

James Reno and his company, ByteHosting Internet Services, agreed to pay the money, which represents the gross revenue he obtained from the scam, to settle the FTC charges. According to the FTC, Reno provided much of the technical expertise needed to carry out the "scareware" scheme, which tricked users into believing their computer was infected with viruses and subsequently offered them fake anti-virus products to clear up the infection.

The supposedly superior wits of Mac users are no match for the professionally packaged human engineering tactics that virus writers are using these days, Don DeBolt, director of threat research for CA, told MacNewsWorld.

"Anyone using a computer should be paranoid about security, regardless of what operating system they are using," Andrew Storms, director of security operations for nCircle, told MacNewsWorld. "For example, the recent Adobe (Nasdaq: ADBE) security flaws affected Windows, Mac and Linux, and recent Microsoft Office bugs needed to be patched on Windows and Mac. No user can afford to be lulled into a false sense of security because they believe that one OS is always more secure than another," he argued.

Why hit one OS with malware when you can hit two? That is the question. The situation is this: The Twitter account of well-known venture capitalist Guy Kawasaki was hacked and used to send out tweets luring users to a site hosting malware.

According to Trend Micro, the malware changes the DNS settings of Windows and Mac machines. If Mac users attempt to view the promised pornographic video on the site, they will download a malicious file.

HUNDREDS of drivers caught using bus lanes have escaped fines after a computer virus forced town hall chiefs to cancel their tickets.

The 'Conficker worm' caused chaos when it hit Manchester town hall in February. The computer problems meant 1,609 tickets could not be issued within the 28-day legal limit - rendering them useless.

If only the RIAA could understand that they could benefit from P2P, if they only would try, instead of fighting it, which can never succeed. Technology always wins.

I'm not even convinced that she is guilty, by the way. You know why? Because for many years I did "tech support" for my family and for an office I worked in. And I saw how easy it was for weird things to happen to a Windows computer that the owner didn't even know about. There are, they say, millions of computers owned by bots for malicious purposes, after all. She says she didn't do it. What if she really didn't? How would she prove it? How would *you*, if it were you?

Google might be sending you to infected sites thanks to Gumblar-virus that travels through infected adobe documents.

Once on your computer, it targets your Google searches and redirects them to malicious sites. Once that happens, the hacker gets complete control of your computer.

When I read about a security researcher who had published proof-of-concept code for a vulnerability, I was upset. To disseminate proof-of-concept code is to basically say, "Here is a way to attack computers..."

Apple gives people the false impression that they don't have to worry about security if they use a Mac. And perhaps because the company is invested in fostering that impression, Apple is grossly negligent in fixing problems.

Bloggers are increasingly getting sued or threatened with legal action for everything from defamation to invasion of privacy to copyright infringement.

The number of blogger lawsuits is likely to keep rising as the number of people who post online continues to grow, says Sandra Baron, executive director of the Media Law Resource Center and a media-law attorney. Social-networking sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook and MySpace -- which is owned by News Corp., the parent company of The Wall Street Journal -- and microblogging services like Twitter are making it easy for impetuous remarks to reach thousands of users in a matter of minutes.
