Busy, Busy, Busy

Busy with lots of things.
Data Recovery - lot of these happening. A word of warning do not keep your data, on a removable drive alone. We have had lots of these coming in after being dropped, and 20% or so of these had no data to be recovered. If you are short of drive space, get a bigger or another hard drive put into your computer. Keep the external drive for either transporting the data or to back up your data.

If you have Windows Vista, then it so easy to backup this way.

Rise in Spam, and Viruses

We've seen a rapid rise in the amount of SPAM in recent weeks, mostly phising emails, but also a rise in emails containing viruses. We have also seen a rise in infected Computers. Amazing how many people don't have a proper anti-virus. You really need to make sure your computers are protected.
Also make sure your Firewall is in place and active, block every port you don't need.

People are out there at the moment, and they are trying to make money by accessing peoples data.
