News 0 2727

Softpedia News Center reported on November 28th, 2012, that the Romanian sites of Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, PayPal , “Laboratory of Kaspersky” and others, were periodically unavailable. Users who wanted to visit their regional sites were redirected to a third-party site.  


An Algerian Hacker didn’t actually breach Yahoo or Google servers but instead, gained access to DNS servers and altered records such that visitors to yahoo.ro or google.ro were redirected to his defacement page.


This hack is similar to what happened recently to the Pakistani sites of Google, Yahoo!, Microsoft, PayPal, eBay, HP and Apple.
People were not able to get access to Google, Yahoo and Microsoft services.


Use Spinbackup and you will get double protection of your cloud data, plus you’ll be able to get your data regardless of the antics of cybercriminals

Data Protection Tips and Tricks

News 3 2859
Today let me discuss a problem that can happen with every Google user. The truth is that your Google account can be hacked by “bad guys” but developers from Google do a great work fighting with them every day.  No matter it is your personal account, where are kept only your private messages, or it is a business account where important business correspondence  with customers and partners is gathered. Let me review some of the most frequent motives.

Hackers may have different motives: someone wanted to read letters of his wife, someone wanted to get money for crack in order someone knows the names of clients of competing firm. They could delete your private messages, send out spam mail or make your messages public. The list of motives could be long. But the essence remains the same. So what to do? How can you get fully protected? There are three ways how to reduce the chance of losing data:


1. Valid e-mail account listed as your secondary account;
2. SMS;
3. Security Question
But no way guarantees you 100% secure. It just complicates hackers and sifts out amateurs.
That’s why I would recommend the fourth way – cloud data backup and recover. The main advantage of this method is even if you have been run into the hacker’s attack, all your data copied to another server, which nobody knows.  And the consequences of such an attack will be just a couple of extra clicks that would return everything in place. Please note, you can always recover your data using Spinbackup which provides free backup and restore service, and thanks to innovative technology of Google, it does not require to enter your Google password. It reduces the probability of intercept your password during the transferring over the network. So do not put yourself at a risk to lose all your data. Data Recovery made easy with SpinBackup!

Chinese Government Has Blocked All Google Services

News 3 2940

On November 8, 2012 all Google (Google.com, Gmail, Google Maps, Google Docs, Google Analytics, Google Drive) were blocked in China, according to  The Next Web.

From November 10th, the search began to work itself, but many services were not available yet, but began to recover.

It is associated with long dispute between Google and the Chinese government that has been going on for years.
At the time of access lockout attempt to go to all the domains google.com, google-analytics.com, docs.google.com, drive.google.com, maps.google.com, play.google.com redirected to the Korean IP- address 59.24.3.173, which did not serve sites at all. An attempt to use an external DNS also did not work (for example, DNS 8.8.8.8 of the Google).

While blocking of the search lasted about 12 hours itself, it was called the largest in the history of Internet.

What a pity, Chinese people have lost access to their data at Google. Using Spinbackup they would be safe since they can work with their Google data withing Spinbackup account!
