A report has been published by Symantec that storage service databases for cloud based business are exploited more and more. Comparing 2010 and 2012 – attack assault rates have risen by 81%, states security companies.
The increase of cloud corporate data attacks are because of increased computer attacks by web-hackers, who target smartphones and tablets, says Craig Scroggie, Symantec Chief of Australia-New Zealand division. It was published in Theaustralian.com at May 1, 2012. Hackers tend to move to corporate hacking operations because of social networking based attacks.
Cybercriminals choose social networks, particularly Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter, because of the huge market of end-users there. Hackers obtain information which they use for revenue, Scroggie described.
In addition, Symantec is analyzing spam activities too. According to it, the biggest spam source this year is pharmacy spam. It takes nearly 40% of all the spam on emails, while jewelry spam is responsible for almost 20% of all junk emails. In addition, sex-themed spam increased to total of 15% of the total spam.
Finally, Symantec recommends using a reputable antivirus and anti-spyware software, which would be able to fight, and unfamiliar malware too, and would provide the best safety and firewall to your computer.This entry was posted on Monday, May 7th, 2012 at 9:48 am and is filed under News, Security.

This is probably my most favorite presentation I have given. It was really fun. I got so much positive feedback on what amounts to a load of crap.
Here is a PDF of the slides if you are interested.
Exploring President Obama’s Federal Budget Proposal through Bubbles

The beautifully animated and interactive infographic "Four Ways to Slice Obama's 2013 Budget Proposal" [nytimes.com] by Shan Carter of the NYTimes shows how President Obama proposes to spend $3.7 trillion in 2013.
Each federal department is represented by a unique bubble, of which the surface area corresponds to the size of the according proposed budget, while its color depicts a positive or negative change in size. The data can be filtered in distinct ways, for instance by types of spending (i.e. mandatory versus discretionary), by negative or positive changes in comparison to the previous year, or by departmental total.
