Q: End of ESET Social Media Scanner for Facebook

ESET technology now integrated directly into Facebook... so ESET Social Media Scanner for Facebook has now been discontinued
​ESET said:




Hello,

We just want to let you know about a change to ESET Social Media Scanner.

We?ve partnered with Facebook, which means that ESET?s award-winning technology is now integrated directly into the Facebook platform. Read more about it here »

As a result ? and after securing 73,441,194,563 links ? ESET Social Media Scanner is being discontinued as a stand-alone application for Facebook.

However, you can still enjoy full protection from ESET Social Media Scanner on Twitter, where you can use it to scan your timeline and lists automatically.

For even more scanning capability, why not try ESET Online Scanner to check and remove threats on your local drives? It?s effective, easy to use, and free.

Thanks

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.)

Update: We have heard that some Microsoft Outlook 2010 Beta users are experiencing crashes when trying to use the new Outlook Social Connector (OSC) Beta (February Update) that was released today along with the LinkedIn Provider for Outlook.

The OSC that was included with the Outlook 2010 Beta must be uninstalled before installing the new OSC Beta (February Update). After the February OSC update is installed, the LinkedIn Provider for Outlook can then be installed.

This information is included on our Download Center page for the OSC Beta (February Update).

If you have installed the OSC Beta (February Update) and Outlook is crashing, follow the steps outlined on this page. As a reminder, only 32-bit Outlook is supported right now. 64-bit support for the OSC will be available soon.

Hi, I've gotten a virus that so far seems to only be affecting Firefox.  It is the one that keeps Facebook, Twitter, and other major sites from loading.  Other pages, will load fine. I Googled it last night and found that there is such a virus and found the name of the virus last night but was using the bad browser.   And now searching with another, I haven't found the name again.  I believe I got the virus by clicking on a bad link on Facebook.  I had a bunch of tabs open at the time and suddenly none of the Facebook tabs would load, so I rebooted and tried again.  Then I cleared cache and rebooted and tried again.  Then I realized that tabs on smaller web sites were loading fine and Google was working,etc.  It was definitely not a Facebook problem as I could load Facebook on another browser and my husband could load it on his computer as well.  I also couldn't load Twitter and at least one other page wasn't loading.
 
 
I'm running Windows 8. (Not Windows 8.1)  And I have the latest version of Firefox.
 
I have run a full system scan with McAffee and it found nothing.
I have run the free version of MalWare Bytes and it found only PUP.Optional.BundleInstaller.A which it quarantined and was not the source of the problem.
 
(If it helps to know to communicate with me, I do have a technical background (EE) and am computer literate.)
 
Thank you so much!

Websense Security Labs has been tracking various Facebook attacks for many years...Most social networking accounts can only be viewed if the account holder explicitly accepts or requests another account to be added as a "friend". A generic Web crawler and even a search engine Web crawler would not be able to mine the pages on a social networking site due to lack of permission.The attacks on Facebook and MySpace in the last few weeks have been very interesting...To give you an example of an attack that has been going on for over six months, we've shown a recent Facebook phishing email that our Honeyjax system picked up this weekend...securitylabs.websense.com

The risks of Social Media
Do you cyber-blab? Are you a compulsive Tweeter or Facebooker? Think carefully about what you post. A simple post about your daily visit to the local coffee shop could be enough to tell a burglar when it is safe to rob your house. Remember EVERYTHING on a Social Media site is public.

Facebook and Twitter
Don?t get carried away with what you post on these sites and remember that almost everything you post will be completely public and it is rather like walking down the local High Street and shouting at the top of your voice to everyone in earshot, everything that happened last night, what colour underwear you have on, your name & address and phone number and where you hide the spare keys to your front door.
Be very careful what you post on Facebook or tweet about. It can be used against you in court or by an insurance company, even something as mild and innocent as: ?I?m jogging every day to get fit for my holiday?. Not good if you?re claiming for whiplash after a car accident or you are off sick from work.
Lawyers, Insurance companies, your current or prospective employer will take the time to scroll your Facebook timeline and your tweet history for evidence that can go against you.
Scammers and Fraudsters will scan Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites for useful information that will help them scam you.

Finding and addressing Twitter and Facebook threats requires a thorough understanding of how they're accomplished.

Social media threats are at an all-time high, ranging from account hijacking to impersonation attacks, scams, and new ways of distributing malware and executing phishing attacks. Sophisticated attacks target organizations of all sizes. For example, Microsoft was the victim of a series of social media hacks by nation-state threat actors. The attack campaign was extensive, affecting multiple Twitter accounts (principally Skype?s) and exposing corporate passwords and emails for dozens of Microsoft employees.

Because social media exists outside of the network perimeter, social media threats can manifest long before network perimeter and endpoint security detect malicious behavior. Detecting and mitigating these threats requires a thorough understanding of this new threat landscape. If we compare these tactics, techniques, and procedures to traditional network attack methods, we can draw some important contrasts.

Adversaries traditionally target a corporate network using two phases: reconnaissance and exploitation. Reconnaissance involves footprinting (for example, gathering information about an organization?s IP address and domains), scanning (identifying what systems are using what IPs), and enumeration (identifying the services and ports available on these target systems). When attackers use social media, their strategy is similar, but the methods of at... Read more

About three months ago, this program was making headlines all over the national news. I thought it was at the very least amusing and thought I would give it a try. When I installed the program, I didn't do all the setting up required. I tried to get rid of it today and upon attempting to uninstall it I got this message:

"The installation source for this product is not available. Verify that the source exists and you can access it."

It appears I need a file that would be in my temp files. I went to the website, www.socialmediasobrietytest.com to reinstall the software, and eventually got this message:

"Another version of this product is already installed. Installation of this version cannot continue. To configure or remove the existing version of this product, use Add/Remove Programs on the Control Panel."

So, now I'm stuck in a never-ending cycle. When a program does this, it usually gives me cause for concern, but everywhere I look I'm seeing that WebRoot designed the program and WebRoot makes anti-virus and anti-spyware software. There's no program with that title on www.webroot.com, however.

I've googled everything I can think of and I'm finding almost all of the media's coverage in Novemer and NOTHING about install/uninstall issues. Is this program malware/adware/spyware? How do I remove it? Is it ok to reinstall it and try it out? Thanks.

Greetings,

My company is interested in setting up a social media presence online using Facebook.

We have a concern over negative feedback from customers or competitors or outside parties and that fact that the comments become a permanent record.

I would welcome comments from anyone with a point of view on this issue.

Many thanks!

A:Beginners guide to social media

Hello.First. . . I'm unsure of what your asking, could you clarify please?Secondly, it is my opinion that there is no such thing as "bad feedback" provided you make proper use of it. Both positive and negative feedback have use in determining your company's future. Positive feedback shows you what you're doing right, and negative feedback shows you how you can improve. Personally, if I see a company with only positive "testimonies" available I get a little bit suspicious; I believe that the ethical company should not take steps to hide flaws, but instead use those resources to find and correct said flaws. Finally, if by "negative feedback" you mean spam or troll attacks on your company, Facebook does provide the capability to remove offending comments from your page.Hope that helps.~Blade

Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction as to where I´m best to ask this question?

This is a thread I wanted to make for quite some time... namely since 2011 when the whole SOPA / PIPA / ACTA / CISPA madness started, as part of a massive plan to censor the internet. Like many others, I've been interested in a way to create a framework that would allow people to post what they want, without either an ISP being able to censor them nor the government being able to knock at a specific door and arrest someone for what they're hosting.
 
Most attempts to make this dream come true have been at networking level. Mesh networking in routers is an example of it being done through hardware, while TOR is an example of an attempt through software on existing devices. But all of these methods are either slow, unreliable, or unavailable for most people. So before this breakthrough happens, and people can create an internet that doesn't require ISP's and where your traffic can't be spied on, I've been thinking about different kind of platform. I'm a below average programmer, so I can't say I have the knowledge to do it alone... or maybe someone else attempted my idea already. In either case, I wanted to post about it and hear what people think, if this would ever be a viable project:

I just changed my phone number. Now all my social media sites wont let me go into my sites. I don't know what to do. Is there away to change my profiles.
 

A:I changed phone numbers, now cant get into my social media .

Phone number shouldn't matter unless you are accessing via your phone. In which case, I didn't know the phone number was tied to the account. You will likely need to contact each site and ask if your profile can be updated (or check their FAQ / support page). Aside from that, create a new account.

This is something i wonder of curiousity, if your photo is somehow compromised (i know how rare it is but still), if you upload the photo to lets say facebook, if than you download that same photo and open it will you get infected?

Cyber crime has reached a new battlefield ? social media platforms. Just as companies seek new opportunities to reach their target audience, so do cyber criminals. According to Proofpoint?s recent Social Media Brand Fraud Report, 19% of the 4,840 social media accounts associated with ten top worldwide brands were fraudulent.

Identikit fraudulent social media accounts
Carefully crafted, bogus accounts can be difficult to distinguish from legitimate ones. They replicate the brand account as much as they can, mimicking the logo, look and feel, and even content. The only difference is in what they propose to the audience: customer service at odd times, discounts, free gifts, and deals that are too good to be true. As the report says, ?the only difference might be something as small as one character in the Twitter handle, such as @askmajorbank vs. @ask_majorbank?.

Although social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram have implemented an account verification service ? the blue checkmark badge next to the account name ? cyber criminals have become even smarter and can replicate the badge in their background image to fool customers. However effective account verification is, it doesn?t extend to posts or tweets and fraudsters know this all too well.

I just noticed a problem with ESET Smart Security. The Smart Scan scans normally and quickly and by the time it gets to 99%, it scans 187003 files and takes 0:18:20. Then the scanner goes crazy! It is stuck at 99%, and by the time it finishes, it scanned 606785 files and takes 1:32:43! Why is this the case?
 

A:ESET Scanner Status Inaccurate?

Because it is scanning the files.

ESET, the leader in proactive threat protection, today announced availability of a new, powerful online scanning service. Powered by award-winning ESET NOD32 Antivirus software, the ESET Online Scanner is a free Web-based service that allows users to scan and disinfect systems, hard disks, compressed files and email -- without uninstalling their existing antivirus solution. With the ESET Online Scanner, non-ESET users can identify hidden threats, get a ?second opinion? on the health status of their computers, and determine the strength of their current malware solution.http://www.en.nod32.ch/company/article.php?contentID=1392

Thanks in advance for any help....

additional....noticed its been a few days since I did a full scan with AVG so I'm doing that now, also...since these got by AVG, should I get a different antivirus program and run it? Any suggestions of which one ....oh and I need a free one if I'm going to replace AVG

A:[SOLVED] Just ran Eset online scanner and

so far AVG has found 3..so its not looking so bad, had to turn on some more settings in AVG ...I'm also going to run MaleWareBytes just to be safe

edit>AVG says 30 threats so far, ouch!

I'm not going to post anything else until AVG and MWB are done, and have done their job. Then I'll do another check and post if anything shows up.

OK< so AVG found 30 items, took care of them, MWB running now...
maybe I just jumped the gun on this....kinda scared me that Eset found stuff. Maybe now that AVG is set to do deep scans I will be ok.

I've been trying to find out the source of the FlashPlayer.exe popup on my system, so I've tried to run the ESET online scanner. It found some non-critical things, but as ESET continued to scan, the ESET screen disappeared. The outline remains, but there's no text. I stopped it a couple of times before, but I just now let it run about six hours. It shows CPU usage in Task Manager, but it never refreshes the screen. I had to end it in Task Manager again. The system is Windows 7 on an i7 with 16 GB memory. Do you have any idea what the problem might be? 

A:ESET Online Scanner Problem

Some online scanners will detect existing anti-virus software and refuse to cooperate. In some cases you may have to disable the real-time protection components of your existing anti-virus if you encounter a problem and try running the scan again.ESET Online Scanner FAQs #5If you have other antivirus, antispyware or anti-malware programs running on your computer, they may intercept the scan being performed by the ESET Online Scanner and hinder performance. You may wish to disable the real-time protection components of your other security software before running the ESET Online Scanner. Remember to turn them back on after you are finished.

Social media security:
Avoiding the phishing threats from Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn

Social media may not be everyone?s cup of tea, but it is getting harder and harder to ignore for organisations ? especially from a cyber security perspective.

A range of recent research has highlighted the increasing dangers that organisations face from employees? social media usage.

One thing that stands out in the research is how little ?due diligence?, in the words of Raj Samani, CTO EMEA at Intel Security, is done when connecting with other accounts.

Intel Security?s research found that 24 percent of the 2000 UK-based respondents had connected with someone they did not know on LinkedIn.

69 percent of respondents had never wondered if someone was not whom they said they were on LinkedIn.

Research conducted by OnePulse for RiskIQ found that only 53 percent of people check for the verified badge when engaging with a retail brand.

Only 42 percent of people checked the brand?s other social media posts, 40 percent checked the brand?s replied to other people?s Tweets or posts. 31 percent checked the Twitter handle or Facebook URL while 24 percent checked the brand?s number of followers or likes.

These are concerning figures as it is easier than ever to set up a fake social media account.

Easy Tips on Cyber Security and Use of Social Media This Summer:

Summer is in swing.

This is the time of the year when the majority of employees take time off work, due to child-care (with schools being closed) and wanting to spending time recharging their batteries.

Social media and cyber security play a big role in the summer. On a daily basis, and particularly when we travel, we are all guilty of sharing personal photographs, pictures of our families and kids on our social media accounts. With publicly showing our meals out or just picnics in the park, everybody can see where we go, how long for and when we are back home.

Cyber security is an issue that is becoming predominant both in our business and home life. That?s why we all need to educate ourselves in looking after our own online privacy, in order to reduce potential risks, such as burglaries for example.

Our public Twitter accounts can be merciless if a savvy criminal is planning to act.

Advertising your vacation plans on social media seems like a sharing-fun thing to do; however, digital footprints are all clues available to anyone who is trying to find out about us. We?re all guilty of Googling our names, so yes, potential criminals can track down your address this way.

They can track you down by checking your other social media accounts for clues. They can easily identify where you live. Did you know that insurance claims may not be granted if you have a public display of your whereabouts on social me... Read more

Hi there,
 
First off I got an email from Twitter (which was legitimate) saying they reset my password as my account may have been compromised. Others also got this email http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=4716169 )
 
I reset my password by going to the Twitter site and not through the link in the email and I havent been on my twitter for a while, I saw no tweets that I didn't make and I have disabled all apps on my Twitter account so I am not so worried about that aspect and am hoping Twitter has been over precautions (which is always good!).
 
Now after this I ran MBAM and Avast 8 Free and both came up clean. I also like to run ESET online scanner (as I know you guys recommend it) however when I went to run it last night it said a proxy error and that it couldn't download the database. I rebooted and tried again to no avail. This got me thinking I could have malware and so here I am.
 
However I tried ESET again today after work and it is running! (as we speak) I would however be really grateful if someone could run through the process of checking my PC is clean as I always like to make sure it is secure (especially seen as though I don't know why Twitter thought my account was compromised!)
