RANSOM WARE IS STILL OUT THERE! - AGL SCAM

Dire warnings have gone out in the Advertiser 24/8/2016 about a scam involving AGL. RS Net received this email yesterday so I have captured it so you can see what it is about.

Important points to note are that it is called AN Account Overview, and it does not come  from AGL

It invited you to download the details. The details are in a zip form and contain the virus.

This stresses again how important it is to be fully backed up! 

Don't wait till after your system dies to find out!  If you are unsure, talk to RS Net today or see more online  

This article from Techbit explains more of what you can do to protect your business - here is one of their helpful suggestions

Make it harder for the authors of ransomware to hide their intentions because you’ve allowed Windows to hide the file extension. If a file is really called “Invoice.doc.exe,” then you shouldn’t allow it to present itself to the user as “Invoice.doc.”

Forcing Windows to call an executable an executable gives your users at least a fighting chance.

 


 

How well is your site showing on the Net?

RS Net has just invested in a new SEO reporting program that gives very clear insights into how well you and your main competition are doing with  keyword phrases you consider you should be found for?

For $55.00, we will use 10 important keyword phrases and 5 competitors nominated by you and supply a report you can print out.

After that you can decide whether you would like  more information about or assistance with SEO for your site.


ALL Older Shops/Catalogues need to have a software upgrade applied URGENTLY.

This headline has appeared  before in the newsletter. Despite  this and personal contact some web shop/catalogue owners have still not taken this up. Hackers are out there all the time and you risk your own and your client's data by not being proactive. We have seen minor attack affect several older sites and don't want a major problem.
