Last week, you could (in theory) been searching for the country singer Katie Armiger.

Number One with a bullet, or at least a baseball. At time of writing, the site seems to be fixed (there’s a lot of pink and frilly dresses on it, so I assume it’s fixed).

Over at the Malware Protection Center, we’ve seen a steady stream of Privacy Center clones and the odd FakeVimes Variant. Sporting names such as Windows Armature Master, Windows Accurate Protector and Windows Test Master, you can be fairly certain that seeing the below is a sign of infection:
Finally, another example of why you shouldn’t reuse passwords. I’m willing to bet a lot of people use the same password for both their Steam account and the EMail address associated with it.

However, split those logins up and should the evil Steam phisher grab your Steam details, when logging in on their PC they’ll see this appear:
Yes, Steam will pull them up about logging in from a new computer. At this point, an EMail is fired to your associated account and the phisher isn’t going to get very far without access to your mailbox:
Of course, this security procedure isn’t going to help the user much if they reuse passwords. For everyone else, it’s one last chance to regain control of a compromised account.
You don’t reuse passwords, do you?
