  1. Very good reminders for the many non-IT proficient (of which there must be a lot else we wouldn’t hear so much about such crimes all the time). On the topic “Digital Footprint” and but one of its many issues…email tracking…today there are also things like “StartMail” and “ProtonMail”; they’re not designed as total email secrecy, and I believe both are still in beta, but they claim they offer protection from non-government email account parsing; both also claim encrypted emails (both automatically if sender/recipient on same email provider, else by sending encrypted password so users on other emails can access messages). “Protonmail” appears to have a two-step login to accounts, requiring two unique passwords. Since they may keep logs or at least be on server roots, again, they’re not James Bond level, I think “Protonmail” and any others that may evolve like it at least offer another degree of protection against casual email hackers and trackers…in addition to TWC recommendations. Cheers!

  2. You could CHANGE THE MAC ADDRESS of your PC/LAPTOP/IPHONE/ANDROID or ANY IPADS, then, keep changing NAME OF THE DEVICE OR THE NETWORK NAME on a per SESSION BASIS, its your ISP’s DNS that is responsible for all troubles, CHANGE THE ISP DNS TO SOME OTHER DNS OF YOUR CHOICE AT THE ROUTER LEVEL, then, BLOCK YOUR ISP’S DNS ADDRESS USING SECPOL.MSC ON ANY WINDOWS DEVICE !!!!!

  3. Very good article on cybercrime. I see that you recommend Microsoft’s EMET to protect PCs against zero-day attacks but there is no mention of Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit. After reading many reviews on anti-exploit tools all seems to consider both as very good tools but they also put Malwarebytes ahead of Microsoft’s EMET. Can you please in the near future review both EMET and Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit. Both have Free versions with Malwarebytes also having a paid version. I sure that your readers would be very happy to see your review on this topic. Thanks….. have a great day.
