Originally posted 2018-02-13 11:37:17. The purpose of this post is to help you set up a Linux system, maybe a VPS or even just a humble Raspberry Pi so you can connect to it using PuTTY or WinSCP or even a terminal on a Mac PC in a secure way using a private key. There are a lot of how-to’s on the internet showing you how to do this however they often seem to miss that critical step or they assume a level of knowledge. So as much for my own benefit as anything else, here is my complete how-to

Through the magic of the CIA, they managed to have a leak of the ‘tools’ they use to crack into your computer some months ago. Wikileaks got hold of this and now we have a nasty piece of malware called Wannacry. This is ransomeware that demands payment to unencrypt your files and give you your data back. Essentially, your only option is to pay and hope they give you the unlock key. Going forward, you would not have been infected or vulnerable to this malware if you

Two Factor Authentication (2FA)

Phishing Remove Malware

Originally posted 2017-09-06 11:37:44. In the last couple of years many online services have started offering two factor authentication (2FA). DEW IT & Web Services in Kariong can help you set this up to protect yourself. Even if you are hit with a phishing attack, you will be protected as the hacker will not have the needed key to access your account. We strongly recommend that wherever possible you use this additional layer of security to protect your online accounts. What 2FA does it in addition to entering a username and a password to access a site (like your online
