That's because, unlike ProtonMail, Tutanota does not advertise its location as a feature of the service, and instead puts their marketing emphasis on encryption and ease of use.

Chrome's Ad Blocker Is Here: How It Works   

In a blog post today (Feb. 14), Google spelled out the rules for its Better Ads Standards policy, which will block ads ruled as especially "intrusive." These include autoplaying video ads that include sound, large sticky ads that take over the lower-third of the screen, and ads that blanket the entire screen and require users sit through a countdown process.

In total, the Better Ads Standards will be used to filter out a total of 12 "particularly annoying" types of ads, which also include the ads that fill your screen as you scroll over them on a phone, flashing animated ads and mobile ads that take up more than 30 percent of your screen.

Malicious Chrome Extensions Found in Chrome Web Store, Form Droidclub Botnet   

Trend Micro Cyber Safety Solutions team has discovered a new botnet delivered via Chrome extensions that affect hundreds of thousands of users. (The malicious extension is detected as BREX_DCBOT.A.) This botnet was used to inject ads and cryptocurrency mining code into websites the victim would visit. We have dubbed this particular botnet Droidclub, after the name of one of the oldest command-and-control (C&C) domains used.

In addition to the above features, Droidclub also abuses legitimate session replay libraries to violate the user's privacy. These scripts are injected into every website the user visits. These libraries are meant to be used to replay a user's visit to a website, so that the site owner can see what the user saw, and what he entered into the machine, among other things. Other researchers have raised the possibility that these libraries could be abused

WARNING - Whatever you do, don’t download THIS Spectre patch for your PCIF you're worried about the Spectre security flaw, one of the best    

Spectre is a wide-reaching vulnerability that, alongside the Meltdown issue, was discovered this year and affects a host of major CPUs.

The bugs could allow hackers to steal sensitive information stored on affected devices such as passwords or credit card data.

Microsoft distributed Meltdown and Spectre fixes before pausing the rollout after reports that some PCs which installed the patch failed to reboot.

And now Intel are advising customers not to download a Spectre fix they pushed out as it may cause "higher than expected reboots".

In a statement, Intel executive vice president Neil Shenoy said: "We recommend that OEMs, cloud service providers, system manufacturers, software vendors, and end users stop deployment of current versions on specific platforms as they may introduce higher than expected reboots and other unpredictable system behaviour."
