Adobe's database was hacked on October 3, impacting an estimated 150 million Adobe users. Here's a simple way to see if you're affected.

Wonder if your email address, password, credit card information or more was leaked to the world when Adobe's database was hacked last October? If you've gotten your email address anywhere near an Adobe product past or present, then the answer is: probably. Recent reports reveal that Adobe's stolen database held around 150 million user accounts - and not the 2.9 million Adobe originally reported, or the 38 million Krebs on Security later reported.

Recently I had a very sobering experience that demonstrated just how serious the threat of hacked WordPress sites is. I discovered hidden link injections in some posts on a few of my old sites.

These are sites that I no longer actively maintain, they were kind of neglected, and haven't been updated in a while. The hack inserted links to drug sites (the viagra and cialis bunch) using "display: none" attribute to hide them from the page. I think Google disregards these hidden type of links, but having them can penalize your site nevertheless.

Our earlier post about malicious links being spammed out on Facebook said that the links were phishing attempts.

Well, turns out it's also an adware scheme.

Phishing scams in Facebook. It's not new and it's not sophisticated. But they still catch the unwary and they're still happening now, with only minor tweaks in tactics.

At 2010's end, we saw a run of phishing links being sent around via the chat feature. We're seeing a new run at the moment. The following links are sent (from hijacked accounts) through chat messages and posts on the Walls of randomly selected friends...

No matter how tech savvy you are, there are certain things every one of us has to deal with when using a computer-and we don't always deal with them in the most efficient ways.

Here are 10 things that everyone can (and should) learn to keep their computer fast, safe, and easy to use. Here at Lifehacker, we take a lot of the simpler stuff for granted: how to avoid viruses, use keyboard shortcuts, or even just keep your data backed up. Even if you've mastered all of these tricks (and there's a good chance you haven't), you may want to send this along to some of your less computer-savvy friends. After all, the more they know how to do, the less they'll call you for help.

The number of viruses being written and released continues to grow year on year, with 2004 already looking set to pass many malware milestones.

Sasser has accounted for more than a quarter (26.1 per cent) of all email-borne viruses. The prolific Netsky.P accounted for 21.4 per cent while the .B and .D variants accounted for 11 per cent and 6.8 per cent respectively, according to antivirus vendor Sophos, making Netsky in all its forms by far the most prolific.

It must be Wretched Wednesday -- the day after Black Tuesday. Watch out for automatic patches KB 2817630, KB 2810009, KB 2760411, KB 2760588, and KB 2760583

No sooner did Microsoft release the latest round of Black Tuesday patches, than screams of agony began sounding all over the Internet. At this point, I've seen verified problems with KB 2817630, KB 2810009, KB 2760411, KB 2760588, and KB 2760583. Here's what we know at this point. KB 2817630 is not a security patch, it's a gratuitously delivered functionality patch for Office 2013, and man has it had an impact on functionality. I've seen dozens of reports that installing this patch, possibly in conjunction with the KB 2810009 patch that is part of MS13-074, causes the folder pane in Outlook 2013 to disappear. An anonymous poster on the SANS Internet Storm Center offers this picture of the effect.

The big buzz today in internet technology is a new extension for Firefox. It's called Firesheep and it's not as tame as it sounds. It was written to expose HTTP session hijacking vulnerabilities.

US law can apply anywhere in the world, so long as a technology company has control over foreign data, a court rules.

A US judge has ordered Microsoft to hand over foreign data it stores back to the US, despite allegedly strong privacy protections in Europe to mitigate such processes. The logic of the court is that because the US-headquartered software giant controls the data it stores overseas, its foreign subsidiary companies are just as applicable to US law. US District Judge Loretta Preska in New York said the ruling will be stayed to allow Microsoft to appeal the decision to an appeals court. "It is a question of control, not a question of the location of that information," Preska said in the ruling.
