Today’s Top Threat
Not much is known about the Korgapam, however what we can tell you is that it has a low distribution level and will open the back door of the infected computer and let in other viruses. Whatever the end goal of the virus may be has yet to be determined.

Prevent Scammers From Taking Over Your Company’s Social Presence
“Social media is a hugely important tool for growing your business’s brand, and the last thing you want to do is expose your customers to spam. Yet we’ve all seen it: the tweet promising thousands of new followers or the Facebook post teasing a way to lose weight or earn easy money – of course only if you’ll click on a link. It’s an issue that’s not going away any time soon, and it must be handled in the right way.”

In case you want to add them to yours as well.

Setting Aside The Proper Tools
Setting the proper tools next to you before you go to work on a PC is a great idea, the less you have to get up and leave your workstation the better. Of course the list will change from person to person but here is a great starting point.
1. Phillips head screw drivers, both a standard size and a small size
2. Flat head screw drivers, both a standard size and a small size
3. A flash light, preferably one that can stand on its own
4. Pair of needle nose plier
5. Good pair of scissors/wire cutters
6. Wire strippers
7. Zip ties
Sure they are many other things people say you need, like an antistatic wrist strap, but according to CompTia, you can actually just touch the power supply once to remove the static from yourself.
