Counterfeit Downloads, Misleading Applications - How Can You Be Safe?

What is a misleading application?

Misleading applications typically strike people when they are surfing the web. There is not a single type of website where these applications are found, but they are more common from sites offering pirated goods and adult content, as well as blogs and forums. They can even sneak into advertisements on legitimate sites, usually through banner ads at the top of Web pages. In order to get installed onto a system, a person is usually either tricked into downloading the program (thinking it’s something else) or a small program called a "Downloader" is installed by the attacker through an un-patched flaw in the person’s web browser. This is often known as a "drive-by" install.

Misleading applications often are not the first unwanted program to land on a person’s system. A Downloader, such as Trojan.Zlob or Downloader.MisleadApp, infect the system first and then download the misleading application to the computer. Once the downloaded application is installed and ready, the malware that installed it will inform the user that they are infected with a new, previously unknown threat. This can be done through a "balloon message" that appears in the lower right-hand side of the system. The misleading application will then present itself and either pretend to download or run a scan of the system.

The scan results produced by the misleading application may be entirely false or may include some real issues affecting the system, but will always exaggerate the problems on the system and refuse to fix them until the vendor is paid and a registration key is entered into the program.

Why are they dangerous?

Misleading applications, sometimes called rogue software or rogue anti-virus, like a trojan horse, trick consumers into believing a problem exists on their system. Consumers who trust the messages are tricked into purchasing bogus applications for resolution of the problems they have been duped into believing exist. Misleading applications scam consumers out of money, faking the existence of problems and failing to deliver the protection they promise. They also create a privacy risk as the victim must provide their credit card information to the scammers in order to register the misleading application and solve the supposed problems. The victims of misleading applications have paid for software that does not work, handed their personal information to scammers, and are left with a false sense of security that leads them to potentially greater risks from more aggressive threats. Even if a person catches on to the ruse and does not pay the misleading application vendor, the programs can be notoriously difficult to remove without the proper security software.

What To Do?

Be sure to install a reputable, valid security program on your computer. You can check them out by doing research about them using the internet. Some very reliable and highly recommended security systems should be competent, valid and be a secure security protecton program. Norton/Symantec Security Systems have proactive protection programs against spyware and preventatives for other security risks. Kaspersky with real-time blocking of new and emerging viruses and spyware, McAfee anti-virus and anti-spyware software, Windows Defender anti-virus protection programs and scans. Which are proactive and reliable for internet security. Blocking threats that are more and more common on the internet today. There is even system protection for your smartphones. You can have confidence in knowing your system will be protected. Be especially cautious when clicking on pop-up advertisements—especially ads promoting system security or performance tools that look like a standard Microsoft Windows alert. You can always check with Microsoft Windows if you're not sure and don't click on any links on a suspicious looking email.

Do not accept or open suspicious error dialogs from within the browser!

Purchase security and system performance software from reputable sources by visiting there website instead of clicking on an uncertain link you receive in an email. Keep software and security programs up to date. Although there are many names of misleading applications some of the names of these rogue/suspicious anti spyware programs may go by similar or different names. Thats because the criminals behind these scams are still in business today and have been in business for many years. They have changed their names or reBranded themselves but are running the same rip-off security programs. So buyer... beware!

Using Public Domain for Article Writing - Really?

"Hmmm...what can I write an article about?" 
Did you know that you can use "Public Domain" to help you write articles and blogs? Another wonderful way to make extra money online. Do you journalize your daily activities, do you write poetry or submit posts to blogs? Well.. have you ever thought about writing articles? Its a good way to earn some extra money once you get into it. Here's an idea you can use that might be very helpful for you. Have a look and learn all you can, then start writing! This is probably the easiest way to write articles. You don’t need to scour around the library or the internet for hours for information and start an article from scratch. Site owners who are looking for articles to fill their site and to generate a high ranking for their website in search engine results can just modify the article by infusing keywords and keyword phrases related to their subject or niche. By using "Public Domain."
When you use public domain, you are allowed to use what you find there and apply it to your own blog or articles.

Writers give up their copyrights when their writings are in the public domain. So you won't have to worry about copyrights infringement. But be sure you type the words Public Domain first then type in what you're researching. For instance, if you want to write an article about Roses, you would enter in your browser: Public Domain Roses. In doing this you will land on pages that show they are in the public domain. You can use any writings you find and apply it to your blog or articles. Don't get me wrong, I don't think anyone should use the entire page for their articles without some writing of your own, your own words, for the article. Besides where would your creative writing skills go if all you did was to copy and paste everything? We write because we have a passion to do so. We want to convey our writing skills to everyone who'll read them. We want to build our online presence by what and how we write. So if you think that you should just copy and paste everything you'll only be cheating yourself out of honing your own writing skills. This is something to consider once you get accustomed to using public domain.

Now..one good factor in using public domain articles for your site or for any project, is that you can save a lot of money. You dismiss the need to hire experienced and seasoned writers that some website owners use to write their articles. While a single five hundred worded article would only set you back $15 to $25, this cost will increase drastically if you need hundreds of articles to fill the your site. That is IF you don't write your own articles. Public domain articles are a virtually untapped resource and many people fail to realize their true value. The power of articles, keywords and keyword phrases have been deemed invaluable these past few years for many internet based businesses and sites that want to rank high in search engine results. As newer and newer topics and subjects have arisen, there are many demands for new articles to be written. An industry has been formed and there is a worldwide demand. So lets get writing! Enjoy the day.

How Do I Learn To Create A Successful Email Business?

So many times I've read this question: "How do I learn to create a successful email business?" Although there are different ways of going about this, one thing always will stand out. Unless you already have a huge email list, one thing you have to do in order to get more site traffic is to build your list. There are many ways to go about this and it's in your best interest to research the options you have so you'll know exactly what to do. Plus it can help you create a successful email campaign. Always take the time to write a decent message for those you'll be sending emails to. Just blasting out abunch of emails to people without putting much thought into your message can turn off your prospects. Talk to your prospects like you would like to be talked to. Get to know what they like and are interested in knowing more about. If you train yourself to do this it becomes a habit, and a good one at that. No surprises later.                         

You can learn how to do this by the research you do or by taking a course on how to create your email business. There are free courses you can utilize and most of them are pretty good. Just be sure to read their Terms Of Service. Or you can choose to go with a low cost course. Either way it will enhance your knowledge and that in turn will enhance your chances of being more successful. I'm suggesting a free online course website, that I've taken courses at and they are a highly recommended course site. Alison.com is found to be one of the most legitimate free course sites on the internet. Once you go through their site,  you'll see exactly what I mean.  They have it all and they're not trying to scam you out or your hard earned money. So go check them out.

Another good free site that can help you with learning more about email marketing is: Google. They offer a wide variety of "How To's" that will definitely be of great service to you. You can also research more courses by typing in your browser: Free Email Courses or How to Create An Email Campaign. So long as you do your homework you can find very useful information. But don't procrastinate. Take the time to do the work. If you are truly interested in creating an email marketing business, it makes sense to go into it with a knowledge of it. This way you're not just trying to create a business blindly and then getting all frustrated because it isn't going as well as you thought it would go.  

Although there will be some trial and error as you begin your business, by getting the education you need to start the correct way,  gives you a better chance of being successful. So be teachable, learn the tools you need to be successful. Start right away, don't put this off. You want to understand how email marketing works, what you need to do, how you need to do it and then implement what you've learned. In doing this, your chances of seeing your internet business "take off" and becoming successful is much greater.

Why Is Building An Email List So Important? - Here are some guidelines for successful email marketing.

Your email list is the life blood of your internet business. The people on your email list should be your target customers. Your aim should be to build a following of people that look forward to receiving your email and listen to what you have to tell them. To be successful there is a flow of progress that is key to having a successful online business. The first thing you must set up should be your Domain Name, your Hosting account and your Website. Your website is where your contacts have a place to come to and find you. They also need a place where they can securely leave their email and name. You'll need to create a Capture Page for your visitors to enter their email address & name. You must ensure that they do not have any difficulty in the process. A point to bear in mind here is that even after you've drawn the visitor to your site, there is no fixed rule that says they must purchase from you the first time they visit your website. They usually don't. Which means we must make sure there is some way by which they can leave their contact information before they go? You do need to remind them of your business and follow up. You can do this by asking them to sign up in exchange for something valuable you offer them. Like a free download or newsletter. In this manner, your list continues to build. You must find a way to follow up with these contacts to convert them into customers. Your capture page will be the first impression you give your visitors. By prompting your visitors to enter their name and email, it can insure you of having a large list. Your website creates your second impression with your prospects. So make sure you build a site that is fitting with the market you are targeting.

Your emails should contain 'Relevant Quality Content.' You must think about what to write in your emails. It's OK to try and sell products to your subscribers but you must also provide useful and relevant information. Telling visitors what you've got, tell them what it can do for them, why its beneficial to them and give them the next thing to do. If you don't send them messages that are helpful, they will cease to read them or they will unsubscribe. So make sure you provide value, because it will be a worthwhile investment. Try and set a schedule so your subscribers know what day they will usually receive an email from you. Add a little teaser at the bottom of the email talking about the next email so they will actually look forward to it. Its a good process to register with an Autoresponder Software site. Autoresponder sites offer Free-Membership and a Paid-Membership, depending on the site. Do some homework and research which ones offer which kinds of memberships, trial periods, types of service, how their automated email system works etc. The next thing we need is some form of autoresponder service or script. What route you take here really depends on how serious you are about the business/website. A good service will securely collect and store your email addresses in a database, send the emails to your subscribers either scheduled or immediately, provide stats like open and click thru rates. You must remember that it is not just for size that you are growing your list. Why you are doing it is so you can convert it into business. You can start with a strong small list and build it as you go along.

Email marketing is a very cost-effective way for a business to market its products or services to a broad audience. If you can plan an effective email campaign with a quality email list then you can achieve great results from it.

Resource Tips

Here's a Help Tip about your incoming Emails.

In regards to your emails. Always be cautious of emails you receive telling you to update accounts that hold important or personal information such as PayPal accounts, AOL accounts, Bank accounts, Email accounts, etc. Even though they may look authentic. If you are unsure of the security of your own accounts or you need to check the accuracy of your accounts, do not click any link in that email! Instead, go to those accounts directly, by entering the address in your browser of the account you want to check and log into it that way. This is a precaution that can prevent many types of malware, viruses, adware or spyware to hook onto your computer or your personal files. A lot of these emails that request you to check an account through them are what is known as *Phishing Sites or someone trying to get your information so be careful. Take the time to enter the link into your browser and you'll be safer that way.

Another way to find out if an email like those are legitimate. Check out the address-link of the email that is requesting this information. Copy their link and paste it in your browser and see what comes up. Or you can get intouch with your account support, that is in question, and ask them if the email was actually sent by them. In most cases it won't be. You can take it a step further and go to the following links listed below and report the fraud email and find out more about what you can do.




*Phishing is the act of attempting to acquire information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details (and sometimes, indirectly, money) by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication.(Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phishing )

So long as you take steps to stay as safe as possible while on the internet or checking your email, you can help to prevent many unexpected and unpleasant occurrences from taking place. Remember an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of care.
Enjoy the day.
