New google play ransomeware

This nasty cold is keeping me up so I might as well put up some links. Android seems to be getting less secure with ransomware and all those ads that they allow within apps, not to mention all the rights many programs want that they really don't need to have.

Mongo databases exposed.

Something doesn't look right...what's going on google?

I noticed something a bit different tonight and it got my attention. I went to log into blogger and noticed that the site said it was insecure, then I noticed the address ending with .in. Same blog but with the India address. Hmmm...I'm not sure what's going on there, but that's not my usual address which I then realized I could have already logged into it by accident since I did log in to blogger earlier, but I don't remember seen this. Anyway here are two screen shots of the different browsers. Whether it is a google thing or not, this is a good way to get screwed so I thought I show it to you. It's not the first time I have seen this so be careful with any sites, even those you use yourself. And just be careful, bad things can happen to anyone, any time, anywhere.

This one ends in .com. This is on firefox.

This one ends in .in This one is in Opera.
Both browsers have the latest updates.

Speaking of TV's...

HD TV seems to have been the biggest scam ever because no matter what tv or place, I have not being able to get all the normal channels at all. I used to live 5, yes about five blocks from a tv station but could never get that station no matter how many times I re-scan the channels. Now I'm closer to the mountains with a lot more tv antennas and still can't get most of the regular channels. If I lay the antenna down then I can actaully get that channel station I used to live next to, but not much else. Keep in mind that I'm still in the same city but farther from where I used to be, so it's not like I've gone out to the desert. It's a different tv with a better antenna that someone gave me and I saw working fine where the person had it. I of course had to point it in different directions until I could get some clear channels at their house. It's kind of like the old days where we had to turn the rabbit ears on the tv's until you found a good channel coming through. We're back to that again. If you have cable and pay for some sort of service that may work, otherwise forget it. On another note, happy new year everyone!

Got ransomeware on your tv? This guy did.

Oh by the way, this is a perfect example of why you shouldn't be downloading random stuff from the internet. In this case his wife wanted to watch free movies.
