Cyber Security virus/malware

Question: Cyber Security virus/malware

About two weeks ago whilst my son was looking for some images on the google site (not that google is in any way implicated here) a box popped up on the screen saying we had a virus called Cyber Security. It outlined that there was a solution and of course when you followed those links the upshot was you had to pay for a download to fix it.Luckily we'd heard a segment on bbc radio about this virus and ignored it and started to hunt down a fix ourselves.After a number of what appear to be false starts (ie scans that tell you the virus is there but then demanding money to put it right!) and another reference to the bbc we found you guys.I've worked through the malware removal guidance and have hopefully correctly posted the three relevant logs below.It would appear that the "cyber security" rogue has now been removed but I'm following your advice and posting anyway - hope that's right and I look forward to hearing from you.lc[Saving space, attachment deleted by admin]

Preferred Solution: Cyber Security virus/malware

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Cyber Security virus/malware

1) Have "HijackThis" fix the following items in the list below by placing a check in the appropriate boxes.Confirm that you have only the listed ones checked, then press <Fix checked> and close"HijackThis".Please close any open programs before doing this fix.QuoteR1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://home.peoplepc.com/searchR1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://us.rd.yahoo.com/customize/ycomp/defaults/sp/*http://www.yahoo.comR0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = http://home.peoplepc.com/searchR0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch = R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,(Default) = http://us.rd.yahoo.com/customize/ycomp/defaults/su/*http://www.yahoo.comR0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar,LinksFolderName = R3 - URLSearchHook: Yahoo!

Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.3) Next download RootRepeal.rar and unzip it to your Desktop. You'll need WinRAR to extract it * Double click RootRepeal.exe to start the program * Click on the Report tab at the bottom of the program window * Click the Scan button * In the Select Scan dialog, check: o Drivers o Files o Processes o SSDT o Stealth Objects o Hidden Services * Click the OK button * In the next dialog, select all drives showing * Click OK to start the scan The scan can take some time. DO NOT run any other programs while the scan is running* When the scan is complete, the Save Report button will become available * Click this and save the report to your Desktop as RootRepeal.txt * Go to File, then Exit to close the program*Attach this log in your next post.4) Download DDS by sUBs to your desktop.Your antivirus software might question the file. If it does, allow it. * Double click DDS.scr to run it and wait for the scan to finish * When finished DDS.txt will open * A small while later, a prompt will open. Answer Yes * DDS will continue scanning * When done, Attach.txt will openCopy and paste the DDS.txt and attach Attach.txt

Hello,

I would be grateful if you can help me.

I went to my comp today and found flashing virus warnings. I notice that there is a new Icon on my desktop called Cyber Security. I suspected that it must be a 'nasty' so tried to remove it with 'Remove programmes' It won't let me. I searched on google and found a site that gives instructions on manual removal but it involves changing the registry and all sorts, I'm not confident in doing that without guidance.

Can anyone help me get rid of it?

I am using XP home and have Avira free. Not sure what other info you may need.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

Ruth

Answer:Cyber Security malware?

i have received the same icons and can't remove this from my system. When i go into remove programs, it says,"This version of cyber security is for evaluating purpposes only. The removal features are disabled."

Answer:Cyber Security malware: is it gone?

I think its self explanatory "quarantined & deleted successfully" but its always good to have a second opinion so why not download SuperAntiSpyware and do another scan. Make sure you update it and do the full scan.

You might want to ask someone how to go about deleting the registry values left behind by your spyware but i am not the person to be giving you that kind of advice. Good Luck

Hello,I'm hoping you can help me. I have a similar problem as earlier experienced by others...see the following forum link...http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/263016/cyber-security-malware/I logged into my computer last night and after a couple of hours on it, I was getting flashing virus warnings. I notice that there is a new Icon on my desktop called Cyber Security. I may have picked up this malware from a download I did the previous day for a media converter called "SUPER". Before I downloaded it I googled around to be sure it was safe as it is freeware, no reviews I read reported problems with this software. After downloading it, I attempted to launch it, but nothing occured. This raised my suspicions and fears, so I immediatley uninstalled it. Possibly the site I got it from was bogus, or maybe I picked up the malware somewhere else. Now, a day later, I am experiencing this Cyber Security malware which can't be uninstalled or disabled. When trying to disable it, I get the message:"This version of cyber security is for evaluating purposes only. The removal features are disabled." My laptop is an HP Pavilion dv6449us, and Im running Vista SP2...I was able to generate the DDS logs and Attach.txt, but the Root Repeal would not complete after 5 hours, so no report here. Is this normal? How long should it take to complete and generate a report? It seemed to lock up when scanning the c:/Windows/system32/Gather^1.VBS, showing a scan status of "Locked to the wind...

Answer:Cyber Security malware infection

One addtional thing, after attempting to run the but the Root Repeal, which never finshed (it just idled for several hours), explorer.exe seems to have gotten corrupted. I now get the "Windows Explorer Has Stopped Working" message box, followed by "Windows Explorer is Restarting". These two pop ups loop endlessly and prevent ny command, even in Safe Mode. I tried to restore my laptop to a previous restore point, back to October 4, but the explorer launch errors still occur!

It appears one of my company's computers has been infected by the Cyber Security virus. I tried to remove everything to the best of my ability using the directions given at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-cyber-security and using Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. Unfortunately, we are still having issues using Internet Explorer (or even Firefox). Specifically, it will not always work, especially if you try to bring up sites like Microsoft or any other places that will help with removing viruses (e.g., Panda Security). I've tried all that I can think of on my own but to no avail. Is this a sign that Cyber Security hasn't been completely removed or is it infected with another virus? Below is that computer's HiJack Log:

Answer:FBI cyber security virus

Hi ghdeaver and welcome to MalwareTips!

I'm Fiery and I would gladly assist you in removing the malware on your computer.

Before we start:

Note that the removal process is not immediate. Depending on the severity of your infection, it could take a long time.
Malware removal can be dangerous. I cannot guarantee the safety of your system as malware can be unpredictable. It is possible that we might encounter situations where the only recourse is to re-format and re-install your operating system. Therefore, I would advise you to backup all your important files before we start.
Please be patient and stay with me until I give you the green lights and inform you that your PC is clean.
Some tools may be flagged by your antivirus as harmful. Rest assure that ALL the tools we use are safe, the detections are false positives.
The absence of symptoms does not mean your PC is fully disinfected.
If you are unclear about the instructions, please stop and ask. Following the steps in the order that I post them in is vital.
Lastly, if you have requested help on other sites, that will delay and hinder the removal process. Please only stick to one site.

I tried the Hijack This solution to remove this virus, and the Highjack this never opened over the virus. I tried going into Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Negtworking, and Safe Mode with prompt, and as soon as it started loading into the Safe Mode, the computer restarted back in Normal mode, allowing the virus to again take over the laptop. This is my son's computer he uses for school, and it is a Dell d630 with Windows Vista. I do not have nor can I find a Vista disc to reinstall the OS. I was told by Dell I would need to purchase Windows 7 or 8 and install that as an upgrade. Any suggestions?

I fell victim to the cyber security moneypak virus. I wasn't able to get access by safe mode or any of the other options. It would start safe mode for just a second then restart over and over. I tried the option of not restarting upon system failure, but that didn't work either. I downloaded anvisoft rescue disk to a usb flash drive from another computer and it seemed to have removed the virus, but now I have a white screen that loads over top of my desktop. It shows the desktop for about 1 or 2 seconds before the white screen takes over. It also shows it briefly when I shut down. Anyone have any ideas on how I might remove this, or is it even removeable. I have a dell laptop, windows 7 upgraded from vista 32 bit. I inherited it from my son when he went Mac. He has no idea where the original disc is or if it still exist.

At the top of your post, please click on the "Watch thread" button and make sure to check Watch this thread...and receive email notifications. This will send an email to you as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing me to solve your problem faster.

Hi,I have tried many ways to get rid of some Malware that has only recently infected my PV. I hope someone can help me as this is my work PC and I need to plug back into my office network in a few days, but think this would be a bad idea at the moment.The problem first showed itself by insisting I had many viruses etc, and I should install Internet Security 2010. I have installed Malware Bytes removal tool, and installed as instructed. It found the above, said it was removed, but still it appears to exist, although the name of the infection has changed a few times, and is currently redirecting my brower to a similar page to the above malware. A popup now shows that I should install Cyber Security to remove the infections.

Answer:Cyber Security removal; Malware removal not working

Hi,I have tried everything I know of to remove this pesky piece of malware. It seems to keep changing names, starting out as Internet Security 2010, and redirecting me on a google search to a webpage trying to convince I was riddled with viruii and malware, and then trying to sell me thier software, which is really just a scam. I ended up here after a few days of tearing my hair out, almost beaten. I went through the tutorials, but unfortunately that was before I fired off a post in desperation. Please delete my previous post, as I have now followed the suggested path, and run the utilities to help diagnose my problems. The resulting files are attached.Please help. I hope the files uploaded can provide an insight into whats happening.Apologies for jumping right in and posting a Hijackthis log before I had read the tutorials.ntents belowDDS.txt contents pasted belowDDS (Ver_09-12-01.01) - NTFSx86 Run by Greg.Middleton at 15:30:23.26 on Tue 29/12/2009Internet Explorer: 7.0.5730.13Microsoft Windows XP Professional 5.1.2600.2.1252.61.1033.18.3063.2330 [GMT 9.5:30]AV: VirusScan Enterprise + AntiSpyware Enterprise *On-access scanning enabled* (Updated) {918A2B0B-2C60-4016-A4AB-E868DEABF7F0}AV: Microsoft Security Essentials *On-access scanning enabled* (Updated) {BCF43643-A118-4432-AEDE-D861FCBCFCDF}============== Running Processes ===============C:\windows\system32\svchost -k DcomLaunchC:\windows\system32\svchost -k rpcssC:\windows\Syst...

Hi, I want to purchase 2 of 3 books, all related to a similar topic.
I struggling to find out which of the books has the least amount of waffle and cuts straight to the point, yet covers just as many topics as all the other books on the market. I am also interested in DDoS topic, for which one of the books definitely lists in the chapter list.
Any advice or suggestions?

Hi and thanks in advance for any assistance reply,I'm running Windows 7 Home basic SP 1 64bit os. Just a while ago I open www.mahagenco.in and a zip file containing total_run_mahagenco.exe 612kb and click_me_installer_mahagenco.exe 616kb automatically downloaded When I run it, nothing happened and it suddenly disappeared from my desktop. After assuming it was a virus, I run Windows Security Essentials and began a quick scan. Just in the middle of the scan, Windows security essentials shuted down, and the flag of messages in my task bar appeared, saying that Windows Security Center was turned off. I tried to turn it on, but a message saying "The Windows Security Center service can't be started" appeared. I restarted my computer but everything was the same, no MSE and no Windows Defender.I also open service.msc and restarted security centre but it was disabled after sometime.Also in internet explorer9 and google chrome i was automatically redirected to another sites.Then i run combofix whose log report is as follows - ComboFix 13-01-05.01 - PRANALI t 05-01-13 23:44:24.3.4 - x64Microsoft Windows 7 Home Basic SP1 [GMT 5.5:30]Running from: c:\users\PRANALI\Downloads\Programs\ComboFix.exeAV: Microsoft Security Essentials *Enabled/Outdated* {B140BF4E-23BB-4198-90AB-A51A4C60A69C}SP: Microsoft Security Essentials *Enabled/Outdated* {0A215EAA-0581-4E16-AA1B-9E6837E7EC21}SP: Windows Defender *Disabled/Outdated* {D68DDC3A-831F-4fae-9E44-DA132...

Greetings and Welcome to The Forums!!My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your malware problems.I have put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.
Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top o...

Question: Cyber Security

Hi,

I have a friend's laptop that he asked me to help with and it is beyond my ability...i asked him to do a windows update last week as it was about a year out of date, he said whilst doing this an icon appeared to install this "cyber Securty" software - as a regular (not so competent) laptop user he installed this because it looked like regular windows sw.

It has since then about a week from install began to try and scan his HDD everyday, saying there are lots of Trojans etc...and these need removing. From that point his whole Internet was blocked as this was showing as a "trojan" through Cyber Security.

So far i have removed unceccessary files he did not want, booted into safe mode and proceeded to scan 3 times with Super antispyware. Unfortunately as you will know this has not removed the SW but seemed to have removed 45 trojans.

I have been advised that Combofix is a brilliant spyware removal tool, however after signing upto this forum and reading around, i need some help from the Gods?

Please could someone assist?
N.B.

This is an old laptop running XP Proffesional, SP2 with a 1.4 Pentium ®
As said from earlier i have to use my own PC to use the net etc as the laptop will not work, i am currently using a USB stick to transfer data.
There is at the moment no anti virus or firewalls (other than windows) runing, i have removed all of these and only booted in safe mode.
Thanks again

Matt

Answer:Cyber Security

Welcome to Major Geeks!

Open task manager and click on processes...if you see a process running that is just a bunch of numbers, kill it. Then:

Please read ALL of this message including the notes before doing anything.

Pleases follow the instructions in the below link:

READ & RUN ME FIRST. Malware Removal Guide
and attach the requested logs when you finish these instructions.
**** If something does not run, write down the info to explain to us later but keep on going. ****
Do not assume that because one step does not work that they all will not. MGtools will frequently run even when all other tools will not.

After completing the READ & RUN ME and attaching your logs, make sure that you tell us what problems still remain ( if any still do )!
Helpful Notes:

If you run into problems trying to run the READ & RUN ME or any of the scans in normal boot mode, you can run the steps in safe boot mode but make sure you tell us what you did later when you post logs. See the below if you do not know how to boot in safe mode:
Starting your computer in Safe mode

If you have problems downloading on the problem PC, download the tools and the manual updates for SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes ( links are given in the READ & RUN ME) onto another PC and then burn to a CD. Then copy them to the problem PC. You will have to skip getting updates if (and only if) your internet connection does not work. Yes you could use a flash drive too but flash drives are w...

1. Close any open browsers.

2. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.

Answer:Infected with Cyber Security

Hi,The malwarebytes scan actually did not reveal "cyber security" in the report. Definitely still on my computer.Can you post the log from Malwarebytes please? because I'm pretty sure you're using an older database version, because I know malwarebytes detects this one.

We've got the Mandiant US Cyber Security Malware. But I can't even boot into Safe Mode...the PC restarts into Regular Windows as it gets going into Safe mode.
We have Win7 Home Premium.
 
Can anyone offer some help, please?
Thanks,
Rickvv
 

Answer:Mandiant US Cyber Security Help?

 
Let's try something.
 
Power off the infected machine.
Remove the LAN-cable (so it doesn't get internet) from the infected machine.
Power on the infected machine, try to start it normally.

Infected with Cyber Security program. Tried several programs to try and remove (Malewarebytes Antimaleware did not work). Most recent I followed the steps outlined in BleepingComputer.com for removing. Seemed to work, but when the computer rebooted, the red shield with a "x" in it from Cyber Security still appeared on bottom right of desktop. It is now gone, but appeared for a few minutes. Any advice you can give on how to check again and remove any outstanding files associated with Cyber Security would be greatly appreciated. I am a technology novice and am concerned about the security of my personal information and data on the computer.

First off, thanks for all the help so far. The search engine has been very helpful. Here is where I stand. First off just to be able to run the MBAM I had to rename it from an exe to a scr and run the scan through safe mode(running vista). Going through all the steps allowed me to see the scanning as it was taking place, before I could not. I ran the quick scan in safe mode, but after it rebooted(it asked me to) the shield icon was still there as well as the popups for the purchase of their "product". Then i ran a full scan which took about 30 minutes. This found "no malicious threats". The quick scan came up with four to remove which I did. I rebooted once again, but the icon is still there. The initial popups are still there, but everything else seems to work as pre malware. I can visit websites with ease and quickness as before, but I'm not sure if my computer is safe yet. And if it is not I would not want to just ignore this. I hope someone can help me. I am not very computer literate at all. It took me a while to figure out how to go about renaming the MBAM and putting my computer in safe mode just to be able to run the scan. Not the sharpest crayon in the box as far as computers are concerned. I just want to say thank you again, and hope someone can point me in the right direction. Thank you.

Hi and welcome to BC Let's start with Dr.WebBefore we start fixing anything you should print out these instructions or copy them to a NotePad file so they will be accessible. Some steps will require you to disconnect from the Internet or use Safe Mode and you will not have access to this page.Please download DrWeb-CureIt and save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".Scan with Dr.Web CureIt as follows:Double-click on launch.exe to open the program and click Start. (There is no need to update if you just downloaded the most current versionRead the Virus check by DrWeb scanner prompt and click Ok where asked to Start scan now? Allow the setup.exe to load if asked by any of your security programs.The Express scan will automatically begin.
(This is a short scan of files currently running in memory, boot sectors, and targeted folders).If prompted to dowload the Full version Free Trial, ignore and click the X to close the window.If an infected object is found, you will be prompted to move anything that cannot be cured.

I'm new here. I just found this site on Google search because I just got a second virus, or maybe its the old one popping up again, I don't know.

First off, the old one: Basically a couple of months ago I was downloading some free software from a website and I got from what I can decipher the Security Tool virus. I looked online and tried a couple of methods of getting rid of it one being doing some stuff (I don't remember exactly what) and deleting the file and one being downloading a program. I thought that they worked, but there must be remnants because my ISP put a secured sites block on me because weeks later it was sending out bulk email. Anyways, I was just living with that until I was going to take it in somewhere.

Now I don't know how I did it this time, but I keep getting stuff popping up all over the place saying Vista AntiMalware - Unregistered Version and telling me I need to upgrade. Another thing says Keylogger Detected. Another one keeps popping up asking me to buy an unnamed product with a green check mark on the front. It says I have a Spyware infection where all the startup icons appear. It says I have harmful viruses.

It flashes something called Trojanaspx.js.win32.

What's the first step I should take?

I thought this might be a good place to share books people have read about cyber security or related topics. If this thread is inappropriate for these forums, let the Moderators delete it.

Anyway, I recently read Cyber War by Richard A. Clarke. Some people don't agree with his policy analysis, but it's a good book and I recommend it if you are interested in cyber security policy. It was really interesting.
 

Answer:Good Books on cyber security

Infoworld.com recently ran the article below celebrating 6 cyber security advances but which, in your opinion, are the most important?
You can select up to 3 of the 6 options that you feel are of greatest benefit to security, and comments regarding any of them will be appreciated...
You may even decide to grade the importance of them from first to sixth.

The 6 Choices Below are a simplification of those presented in the article..To read the article in full then please visit the link at the top of the page
6 security advances worth celebrating:

In a world besieged by criminal hackers, we'll take all the good security news we can get. Here are six advances that can improve your defences..
SECURE BOOT OPTIONS: ....some operating systems, including Windows 10, offer Secure Boot options. They're even a part of the new computer device firmware standard, Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI), which starts the protection at the chip level.
FASTER PATCHING: A decade ago, many vendors would patch once a quarter or yearly, if ever. Patches for critical in-the-wild exploits could take a week or more. Today, a vendor would be run out of town for failing to patching vulnerabilities -- and those patches are coming at least once a month, if not daily.

Our Fingerprints Are Portals Into Our Digital Lives ? But the Laws Haven't Caught Up:
(ARTICLE DATE: 10 Aug 2016)

Your fingerprint can do more than unlock your phone. In just a few years, the tips of your phalanges may be the most powerful, speedy and safe tool to protect and access a trove of personal data.


It's the master key to the safe of your private life. And there's nothing stopping police from taking it.

Constitutional law hasn't yet caught up with the state of modern technology, experts say, and police are taking increasingly extreme measures to access our fingerprints ? going as far as asking a 3-D printing lab in Michigan to print a finger capable of unlocking a dead victim's phone...

How biometrics could revolutionize criminal law:

Biometric authentication is the practice of using a human characteristic like fingerprints or the iris of the eye to verify your identity and secure your device. The technology is becoming more and more popular.

To help lawmakers stay in touch with tech, Electronic Frontier Foundation staff attorney Andrew Crocker thinks the Fifth Amendment needs to not only protect against forced decryption using a passcode, but also our fingerprints, which both have the potential to provide one with the same personal information...

i've added some other threads before but my computer cracked it, i went on holidays, etc.
so the other threads for cybersecurity asked me to scan my puter and upload DDS.txt and the attach.txt + ark.txt programs, which i did.

cyber security
fast browser search
search guard plus
search guard plus updater

i could do it for all but the cyber security can't get rid of it! it just took over my puter then, it sort of shut down my computer and this message that spyware.monster.exe...000000 or something popped up.

Better law enforcement training and coordination of cyber security and support for a government-backed awareness campaign are two key findings of an ISP survey by the Internet Services Providers? Association (ISPA).

Cyber security has risen up the agenda for business, policymakers, government, law enforcement and users in recent times, yet it has always been a priority for ISPs. ISPA surveyed its members across a range of cyber security areas, including where it sits in their business, the nature and impact of cyber-attacks, the tech used to safeguard networks and the role of end users, Government and law enforcement.

Cyber security is a rising priority, with senior responsibility within the company as ISPs and customers are subject to regular attacks. ISPs play a proactive role through network protection, customer support and by working with authorities to help mitigate threats. Government and law enforcement should prioritise awareness raising and education, and improve how they deal with reports and coordination of cyber security.

The survey shows a real belief among ISPA members in a partnership approach with different stakeholders playing their part. This means government, law enforcement, Internet companies, individual users, ISPs and businesses all working together to protect networks, follow good cyber hygiene, mitigate threats and bring offenders to justice.

Hi there!

When I started taking more interested in cyber security, I had a challenge in finding a cyber security course that would educate me on the basics of steering clear of cyber risks.

So, after studying the fundamentals, I wanted to help out others in my situation. So me and a friends put together a cyber security course for beginners, that we've just launched.
http://cybersecuritycourse.co/#lessons

The thing is that I believe that it could be much better, in terms of both form and content.

So I'd like to kindly ask those of you who are interested in such a course and have a few minutes to spare to share some feedback on it.

For example, I believe that some lessons are too long, but I'm not sure which parts I should leave out, because I don't want to cut out something useful. Also, other lessons seem like they could use more examples.

I should mention that the course is delivered via email - a new lesson every 2 days.
Thanks in advance for anyone who will pitch in with ideas and feedback! I really appreciate it!
 

Answer:Cyber security course for beginners - feedback needed

PS: Just wanted to add some stuff:

About the subjects of each lesson, here's what we covered so far:
- security basics
- fundamental security vocabulary
- security myths
- password security
- choosing a good AV and other products to go with it
- how to stop and solve a system vulnerability
- wi-fi security
- email security
- social media security
- cloud security
-protection from identity threats
- detect a cyber attack
- keeping kids and parents safe online while browsing the web
- common sense security practices.

If you were a cyber security beginner, what else would you like to learn?

Also, if you want to review the lessons, just let me know and I'll share the contents.

Thanks!

Aw geez.  My first time catching a virus and the tech guy at PCMRI said it's a REALLY bad one.  I followed their protocol to no avail. 
Here's what happened: 
- On internet
- Pop up from my anti-virus/anti-spyware - Symantec?  (I think it's by Norton) Shows a list of 6-8 "Trojan" viruses found - I think 2 were listed as quarantined, 1 was destroyed by deleting, and the others were being analyzed.
- Screen goes dark
- pop up appears asking me which video I want to use, drop down menu says webcam or webcam splitter.
- I close the pop-up by clicking the corner x
- Screen goes to the "FBI/Interpol Mandiant U.S.A. Cyber Security" with all of my location & computer info listed - yada, yada - that my computer has been frozen due to illegal child porn and that I had to pay a fee of $300 or risk immediate prosecution by FBI.  (Ads by Rite Aid, MoneyGram, Etc. kinda blew the scam.) HAHAHA!!
...Anyway
- Computer completely blocked me out.  Couldn't do a single thing except hard power down.
- Powered back up, logged on as usual, same screen came up and blocked out of all access.  Cntl/Alt/Delete functions wouln't work - except shut down.
- Tried to bring up in safe mode with network. Came to login screen again, and same thing happened.

I downloaded the software to a USB drive while in Safe Mode. I rebooted with the USB drive. Windows came up after I chose option 1. Then the Mandiant software locked up the computer just like it did while booting the normal way.
Thanks for the help

AUSTIN ? Information security has never been more front and center than it is now. The recent hacking of the Democratic National Committee; the implications that Russia ? a sovereign country ? may have been deeply involved; the potential implication it had on a national election; and the accusations, difficulty in establishing proof, and what can be done about it, all form a perfect backdrop for a look at cyber attacks, cyber war, cyber espionage, and general cyber-malfeasance. At South by Southwest, Sean Kanuck laid out a framework for thinking about cyber attacks, the sometimes similar but mostly different form of warfare it can be, and some ways where escalation of this new form of attack can be limited going forward.

Kanuck is a lawyer, ex CIA officer, the US?s first National Intelligence Officer for Cyber Issues from 2011 to 2016, and is currently affiliated with Stanford?s Center for International Security and Cooperation. He framed cyber conflict by defining terms, and comparing and contrasting cyber conflict with traditional armed conflict. To start, he refutes that we should consider cyber war as another domain of war, like land, sea, or air. Cyber is a means to an end, a way to disrupt information flow or processes that depend on it, or to corrupt that information and make it unreliable. Cyber attacks are another form of obtaining a strategic result, not a form of war in and of itself.

Thanks for sharing

The problems in identifying the perpetrators of this kind of attacks, are paradigmatic of the difficulty to give a precise definition to the expression ?cyber war?. For this reason, many experts believe it is better to speak of ?cyber terrorism?. A war, in fact, to be defined as such in the conventional sense of the term, it needed the participation of at least two actors, well-defined and identifiable. To find the perpetrators of a cyber attack it is often difficult. For this reason the reactions to cyber attacks, in the end are similar more to the actions you carry out against terrorism, made mostly of espionage and counter-espionage, rather than conventional wars.

Hello everyone!
 
I've been using the good advice posted on the forums for a while now, so now I'm coming to ask a bit of help from the community.
 
Briefly, me and a friend have created a cyber security course for beginners, focusing on offering practical and actionable lessons for Internet users worldwide.The course helps beginners in cyber security learn about the basics of information security and a bit about data privacy as well.
I'd like to kindly ask those of you who are interested in such a course and have a few minutes to spare if you could share some feedback on it, because I feel that there's a lot of room for improvement.For example, I believe that some lessons are too long, but I'm not sure which parts I should leave out, because I don't want to cut out something useful. Also, other lessons seem like they could use more examples.
I should mention that the course is delivered via email - a new lesson every 2 days. Thanks in advance for anyone who will pitch in with ideas and feedback! I really appreciate it!
PS: If you have other courses for beginners in mind, it would be great if you could share them as well, since well structured resources for them are quite difficult to find. I'm still learning from how things are put together myself, so it would be much appreciated.
