Today’s Downloads, News, etc… that include Pixlr X, Black Menu for Google, Q-Dir and News About A Major Data Breach

Today is a good day to start you out on a good (FREE) online photo and graphic editor called Pixlr X. The previous version of Pixlr required “Flash” and it appears Pixlr X is coded in WebGL. I have tried them all and what I do like about Pixlr X is that it is FREE and is relatively easy to use. I often use Pixlr when drafting posts here on the blog where images are involved.

There are many applications you will see me post over and over, that are that good and are updated frequently (to make them better). Black Menu for Google is an example of that. Black Menu for Google is a Browser extension that takes all the best apps and services of Google and combines them into one single, convenient experience that’s always just a click away. This extension, I have installed on all my PC’s makes it easy to go to all the Google services that I use without having to go to each site individually.

Q-Dir is another app you will see me push to you. I cannot say enough about how good this quad directory explorer is. I typically, instead of using the quad panel, drop it down to a dual-panel view. I just realized recently that you can also use tabs in this directory manager, as well. I use this directory manager instead of the file explorer built into Windows.

I am beginning to believe, really believe, that our online presence is a real risk… The personal data of nearly 7.5 million Adobe Creative Cloud users was exposed earlier this month when an unsecured database was discovered online. The database, which could be accessed by anyone without the need for a username or password, included information such as email addresses, member IDs and payment status. People accessing the database were also able to see which Adobe products were used by individuals, the country they live in, and whether they are Adobe employees.

Windows Defender’s Tamper Protection Rolling Out To Windows 10 (v1903)

From what I am reading the “tamper protection” feature was actually launched last December (for business customers) and is now being rolled out to Windows 10 computer user’s at home that are running Windows 10 v1903.

At the time of this posting, I checked my Windows Defender software on my PC and have not seen anything thus far to indicate “tamper protection” has rolled out to my PC.

Tamper Protection, as the name suggests, protects certain security features from tampering. One of the barriers that Tamper Protection puts in place around security features blocks manipulations of setting changes that are made outside of the official Settings application. Attackers may attempt to disable real-time protections or certain security features and Tamper Protection was designed to prevent these changes from being made successfully. — Source: gHacks

FREE Google Chrome Browser Protection From Microsoft

Microsoft now offers a layer of protection for Google Chrome through a browser extension called ‘Windows Defender Browser Protection“. If you are particularly concerned about malicious links then this extension will provide an extra safeguard.

The Windows Defender Browser Protection extension helps protect you against online threats, such as links in phishing emails and websites designed to trick you into downloading and installing malicious software that can harm your computer.

If you click a malicious link in an email or navigate to a site designed to trick you into disclosing financial, personal or other sensitive information, or a website that hosts malware, Windows Defender Browser Protection will check it against a constantly updated list of malicious URLs known to Microsoft.

If the malicious link matches one on the list, Windows Defender Browser Protection will show a red warning screen letting you know that the web page you are about to visit is known to be harmful, giving you a clear path back to safety with one click.
