Mimi Grant from ABL shares her personal sextortion experience in this vlog. In our previous blog, Sextortion: The New Threat No One is Talking About, Alvaka’s CEO shared the email that Mimi received and resources to handle and prevent this exploitation. In the video below, Mimi goes into detail about how a sextorter somehow learned one of her username and password combinations and tried to blackmail her into paying a bitcoin confidentiality fee. She also discusses some additional tips she was given from Alvaka’s COO & CISO, Kevin McDonald, to help protect herself against hackers in the future.
Smoke testing is a term used to describe the testing process for servers after patches are applied.
The process typically involves making sure servers are rebooted in the right order, making sure they have completely rebooted, restarting applications in the right order, and then testing to be certain everything is working properly when users return to work in the morning.
This typically takes 30 minutes per server, depending upon your environment.
PCs are not typically smoke tested, or if so, not all of them.
