MacAtoZ talks Privacy & Security
In recent months, we've highlighted the security issues inherent in Java and Adobe Flash. Online privacy and security extends far beyond those two technologies, however, and it's become increasing difficult to keep your personal information both private and secure.
Tomorrow night, Ty Davison of MacAtoZ LLC, will be giving a presentation on Privacy & Security at the general meeting of the Salem Macintosh Users Group (SMUG). The meeting starts at 7 PM at Comfort Suites on Hawthorne Avenue in Salem, Oregon. Visitors are welcome—if you're not already a SMUG member—and the annual cost of a SMUG membership is only $25 per year per family.
We will hope to see you there!

Tip o' the Day
If you're browsing the web and suddenly start seeing "Missing Plug-In" notices on various sites, Adobe has likely issued an update an Adobe Flash, and your plug-in is not up-to-date. Apple runs a system called XProtect which blocks old, vulnerable version of Flash from running, and while XProtect will block other out-of-date plug-ins as well, Flash is the most common. To update Flash, go to System Preferences > Flash Player and check for updates under the Advanced tab. If Adobe Flash is up-to-date and you still receive "Missing Plug-In" notices, some other plug-in is likely being blocked because it's not up-to-date.
If you need assistance with this or any other Apple-related technology, please call MacAtoZ at 503-507-0410. We'd be thrilled to help.
