If you're investing in crypto currencies for the last six months, your portfolio might be in double, triple or maybe flat.

All your wireless belong to us - Hacker

If you haven't read the news about all WPA2 protocol is vulnerable . CERT Coordination Center (CERT/CC) has released information on Wi-Fi Protected Access II (WPA2) protocol vulnerabilities. Exploitation of these vulnerabilities could allow an attacker to take control of an affected system.

My expectation for Equifax and other credit reporting bureaus is high to protect our personal information e.g. Names, Social Security Number, Birthdates, Addresses , and in some cases Drivers License . These information are very important and needed to open a credit card account, get a car loan, and obtain a mortgage . Guess what, those information are stolen about 143 Million Americans, almost half of US Population. This was discovered between mid May to July 29, but only announced last Thursday September 7, 2017. This was acknowledged and announced by Rick Smith, Chairman and CEO of Equifax posted a video at their website How to check if your personal information is potentially impacted. If you're using a credit card, have a car loan or a mortgage most likely you're one of the 143 million Americans. Visit their official Cybersecurity Incident consumer information website: .

New to Bitcoin? You're lucky day, here's an infographic to easy learn about the History of Bitcoin. Infographic by In addition. On July 20, 2017, the bitcoin miners voted, 97% in favor, on the Bitcoin Improvement Proposal (BIP) 91. The proposal, by Bitmain Warranty engineer James Hilliard, was to activate Segregated Witness (SegWit). Some members of the bitcoin community felt that adopting BIP 91 without increasing the block-size limit would simply delay confronting the issue and that it favored people who wanted to treat bitcoin as a digital investment rather than as a transactional currency. They announced implementation of Bitcoin Cash as a hard fork for August 1. It inherited the transaction history of the bitcoin currency on that date, but all later transactions were separate. Block 478558 was the last common block and thus the first Bitcoin Cash block was 478559. Bitcoin Cash wallet started to reject BTC block and BTC transactions since 13:20 UTC, Aug 1st 2017

The popular digital currency Bitcoin has been on the rise in terms of value and popularity over the last few years and it continues to gain popularity in the world of e-commerce.
