Facebook vaguely responds to accusations of a major privacy breach associated with Cambridge Analytica

As you may have heard, Facebook has been in the midst of a security breach controversy associated with Cambridge Analytica and the U.S presidential campaign. Over the past week, the #detelefacebook has been trending all around the world. Furthermore, Facebook's shares have plummeted and continue to do so during this time. In fact, according to the CNBC report Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of the company, has sold  1.14 million shares as part of regularly scheduled programs.

New York Times and Observer broke the story regarding the security breach on 17 and 18 March respectively. Reports stated that Facebook might have been aware of the fact that a company known as Cambridge Analytica exploited up to 50 million users on their platform. Further stamens from Facebook and the whistleblower Christopher Wylie shed light on how all of this might have happened. Read more »

Search.hmyutilitybox.co

Search.hmyutilitybox.co is the kind of threat that proves how important it is to do research before installing anything. This search tool is classified as a browser hijacker, and it was developed by Polarity Technologies Ltd. to expose users to a highly questionable search engine. In fact, Anti-Spyware-101.com research team indicates that this search tool is the primary reason for deleting Search.hmyutilitybox.co from all browsers. Why is that so? Because the hijacker, first of all, redirects to search.yahoo.com without authorization and, second, it shows results that might include advertisements and links to potentially unreliable sites. Yahoo has provided the creator of the hijacker with a search engine, but the company is not involved in showcasing unreliable links that Polarity Technologies Ltd. is paid to showcase, which is why Polarity is the only party you need to hold accountable. If you wish to delete Search.hmyutilitybox.co right now, check out the instructions available below. If you are eager to learn more before you start the removal process, keep reading. Read more »

Look Smart Secure Search

Do not install Look Smart Secure Search on your computer even though it is presented as a useful piece of software that will make your web searches safe.
