Yep. The sky is falling! At least if you listen to some publications.
I know many of you read tech stuff online, and that’s fine. Education is wonderful. But just be aware that the closest thing to a legitimate source and yet seems to prey on scaring you is in my opinion Forbes. They always seems to have a reason why you shouldn’t use something or do something, yet the security sources I regularly monitor don’t mention it at all (and I monitor a lot of them).
So please, DON’T go off and do something to your computer just because “you read it on the Internet”. And yes, it’s as dumb as it sounds.
You know you can ask me if you have questions. Forbes just seems to be trying to drive traffic to their site based on scaring you – and I have a problem with that.
I’ll check it out for you if you’re concerned.
