Let's all use our brains - How to defeat phishing

I don't usually draw attention to news and articles,but this one is deserving of being disseminated as widely as possible...


c|net - Only you can prevent phishing attacks by Dennis O'Reilly, October 10, 2011

As I sorted through several dozen newly arrived e-mails this morning I noticed one from "Provider Inc." with "Order Sales Order" in the subject line. "Damn phishers," I thought as I prepared to send the message to the digital Dumpster.

On second thought, I wondered what would make someone fall for a message that appeared to me like an obvious phishing attempt. Well, people respond to sales receipts even if they haven't bought anything online recently--nobody wants to be charged for something they didn't buy.

So "Sales Order" was the first hook. After opening the message--carefully--the clues to its bogus nature were everywhere. "North Luigi, AZ"? Are you kidding me? A fax number with a prefix of "006"? C'mon. The sad fact is, some of the poor souls the phisher targets with this e-mail will take the bait.

xplorer2 v 2.0 (Windows) - Powerhouse Explorer replacement evolves

It's hard to imagine more powerful features for a Windows Explorer replacement than what you'll find in this latest update. From the developers:

Start with a speck of sand, and continue adding grains one by one. When does it become a pile? When does it become a mountain? xplorer² lived in "version 1.x" guise since its inception 7 years ago, continuously growing in features. Well it is time we called it version 2.0 after some substantial new features were added recently.

The most obvious addition is the dockable/floating panes. You are no longer bound to keep the tree on the left. You can drag it from its titlebar and drop it to any of the 4 corners of xplorer² window. Likewise for all other auxiliary panes (quickviewer, miniscrap, etc). You can even have such panes floating (detached) if you press <CTRL> key while dragging them by the titlebar.

You also get large toolbar and drivebar icons (see snapshot). If you like your images large then just get one of the new XL skins and right click on a toolbar to select the large icons from the context menu.
