Large-scale attack uses browsers to hijack routers | Computerworld

Cybercriminals have developed a Web-based attack tool to hijack routers on a large scale when users visit compromised websites or view malicious advertisements in their browsers.

The goal of these attacks is to replace the DNS (Domain Name System) servers configured on routers with rogue ones controlled by attackers. This allows hackers to intercept traffic, spoof websites, hijack search queries, inject rogue ads on Web pages and more.

What’s the difference between Business Continuity (BC) and Disaster Recovery (DR)? | tranzf.org

Submitted by gageri on Thu, 09/22/2011 – 21:16

What’s the difference between Business Continuity (BC) and Disaster Recovery (DR)? This is a question I have had to answer multiple times. It is a very good question and the answer is not simple! So, as a good lazy ‘techy’, I tried to find the answer on the web. That way, when I am asked, all I would have to do is send a link.

I have used this approach multiple times for other questions I have received. It is convenient and a great way to avoid re-typing an answer. However, this time, I was not very successful in my quest to find an answer. I searched the web, multiple times, for hours without finding the perfect “pre-written answer” I was looking for. So I decided to stop being lazy and write it myself.

Now, if you are like me, and you’ve been looking for an answer to this question, feel free to use this one.

Strategic and Tactical Planning: Understanding the Difference – SmallBizLink

David Brydson | SmallBizLink

Many small business owners and operators do not spend much time planning for their business success. The biggest reason, in my opinion, is that they are not aware how easy it can be. Most owners, when they hear the words Strategic Planning or Tactical Planning, get a glazed-eyed look on their faces. Actually, these can be rather simple tasks to manage if you understand a few things about them. Instead most business operators are in a state of confusion about what each of these terms mean.

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams doing everything to get past listeria issue, reopen | The Columbus Dispatch

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams is fighting to get back in business after testing in Nebraska more than a week ago showed that a pint of the company’s ice cream was tainted by listeria.

Listeria also was found later at the company’s Columbus production plant, which had been inspected 17 times by the Ohio Department of Agriculture over a two-year period and as recently as early March. The bacteria can cause illness in certain segments of the population, including the elderly and pregnant women.
