  • What If I Find A Random USB Drive? Should I Pick It And Use?

    3-word advice: "DON'T TOUCH IT"

     

    What is the step you take when you come across a random USB stick? Very often, people stick it in their laptop without much thought. This could result in heavy losses in the form of virus infections, ransomware attack, or installation of some keylogger or adware. 

    One should remain careful if he/she comes across an unclaimed USB drive. The sensible step would be to ignore the USB drive. Just leave them be. Just in case you decide to pick it up, for whatever reasons, never plug them in. It’s a risk that’s not worth taking.

    Some of you might be wondering — What could happen if I pick a stray USB and plug it in?

    Well, it’s a known fact that hackers use it as a way to spread malware. It’s possible that the USB could be infected with malware. Apart from the well-known trojans and worms, your PC might also fall prey to ransomware, keyloggers, adware and other threats.

    We’ve also repeatedly told you about advance attack mechanisms like the one employed in USB Killer.

  • 5 Best Apps For Earning Some Extra Cash

    Incredibly, there are genuine, real ways to make money online without getting scammed. All you need is a smartphone, some (lots) free time and a relaxed attitude to constantly being bombarded by adverts.

    These apps might not swell your bank account, but they might buy you a beer or two. Which, if you're honest with yourself, is the only reason you go to work. Right?

    1.Pact - Android and iOS

    Pact puts your money where your mouth is. You set health and fitness goals in the app, and if you don’t stick to them, you lose money. It’s as simple as that. The idea is that people will be motivated to stick to their goals for fear of losing money. You also get rewards for sticking to your new regime - somewhere in the region of $2 per goal - which comes from other users who have failed. This is all tied together in a swish app that links with your fitness tracker for accurate results and authentication.

     2.Inbox DollarsAndroid and iOS 

    Inbox Dollars pays you small amounts of cash take surveys (which are emailed to you), browse the net and play games. Once you hit $30 you can cash out. Where does Inbox Dollars get its money from? Advertisers who are keen to get eyeballs on their adverts and better understand consumer behaviour. Inbox Dollars rewards you for taking part in their market research.  It’s all fairly straightforward and you’re told how long each survey will take to complete, so you’re not stuck endlessly answering questions for $1. So far Inbox Dollars has paid over $35m to its members.

    3.Fronto Android

    Fronto pays you to advertise on your lock screen. Adverts in the form of  products, articles or surveys are placed on your lock screen. You get paid for swiping left on the advert and following the link. You’re paid in Fronto points, which translates to roughly 2500 points per $1.

    4.SlideJoyAndroid

    Like Fronto, SlideJoy pays you to occupy that prime real-estate that is your lock screen. You’ll get $5-15 per month to view ads on your lock screen and you’ll be paid whether you chose to dismiss the ad or follow the link through. At the end of the day, you’ll get a notification telling you how much money you’ve earnt.

     

    5.App Trailers -Android and iOS

    Watch adverts, get paid (noticing a theme here?). App trailers gives you points for watching the many, many adverts it lists. But the trailers aren’t just limited to apps, you can watch trailers for the latest films and games too. You’ll get points for each time you sit through a trailer, which can be cashed-out in real money via PayPal (500 points per $0.50) or transferred to a gift card for Amazon, Best Buy BBY -3.89%Starbucks SBUX -4.01% and many others (which works out to roughly 1000 points for a $1 gift card).
