Online banking traffic: Fake SSL certificates deployed across the internet.

Image
As a forward-thinking IT leader with global operations, everyday ,Connectikpeople.co observes amazing behaviors related to hacking and cyber-attacks. Today, let us talk about the recent Netcraft report which underscores the Fake SSL certificates deployed across the internet phenomenon. Connectikpeople.co can observes that dozens of fake SSL certificates impersonating banks, ecommerce sites, ISPs and social networks have been found. According to Netcraft, some of these certificates may be used to carry out man-in-the-middle attacks against the affected companies and their customers. Meaning that, successful attacks would allow criminals to decrypt legitimate online banking traffic before re-encrypting it and forwarding it to the bank. This would leave both parties unaware that the attacker may have captured the customer's authentication credentials, or manipulated the amount or recipient of a money transfer. The fake certificates bear common names (CNs) which match the hostnames of th…

C'est vrai, la 3G n'est pas disponible pour  booster le développement de la Data (Cloudservices, services IP, Streaming et autres, mais commencer par faire quelques chose. Notre constat est clair : les rayons Smartphones et tablettes de MTN, Camtel et Orange Cameroun et partout en Afrique sont pleins d’invendus d’iPhones, iPad, Blackberry Z10 et autres, Samsung Galaxy et Tab et la galaxie ZTE. A peine on arrive souvent à écouler les 1/3. La faute à l’exclusivité marketing traditionnelle. C'est-à-dire que les marketistes préfèrent faire de l’affichage géant et diffuser les messages exclusivement marketing. Ni les usages possibles, ni le contenu, ni les fonctionnalités ne sont mis en évidence et expliquer clairement surtout pour les professionnels qui en ont réellement besoin. MTN, Camtel et Orange Cameroun à l’heure de la mobilité, du tout digital, c’est le moment de basculer aux prises en main pour expliquer, mettre en évidence les usages possibles, le contenu, les fonctionn…

Image
Même si ce n’est pas nouveau, rappelons que la croissance naturelle qui ne s’adosse pas sur effet levier, se fait et se fera dans les pays émergents et en voie de développement. L’équipementier réseaux et télécoms Cisco expérimente progressivement cette tendance dans ces activités commerciales, lui qui vient de publier les résultats de deuxième trimestre 2013 décalé (octobre à décembre). Quant ça va bien, le groupe en tir un gros profit et quant ça va mal on peut observer par exemple un bénéfice net se fondre à -54% entre novembre et

Réalisation d’un journal photo à partir de photos ou de Gifs créés au cours d’une journée: ce que vaut Yahoo !

Image
Il est très difficile de dire si Yahoo !, a réussi avec Flickren termes de trafic et de fonctionnalités générés autour de son produit phare de gestion en ligne de photos et vidéos. Mais, ce donc Connectikpeople.co en est certain, c’est que Yahoo !, en est bien loin d’un succès exemplaire. L’outil est certes formidable, mais manque d’attractivité. 
En effet la grande faiblesse de Yahoo !, autour de Flickr, est de vouloir combiner l’aspect grand public et professionnel. Les différentes acquisitionsréalisées ces derniers temps, en sont une autre illustration.
Toutefois ayons la faiblesse de penser que ces acquisitions généreront un nouveau dynamisme. En rachetant l’application Days, cette semaine, Yahoo !, comble son retard sur cette tendance très prisée actuellement autour des photos : Créer un journal excitant à partir de photo prises sur une journée.
En effet, s’il en facile de prendre une photo, d’un membre de famille, d’un évènement, d’un paysage ou monument, il n’est pas toujours aisé…
