Cheap security measures could save lives
Apr 30, 2011, 2:16 AM
i have a very simple question
security these days is a pain in the ### so
we need something to make us gain control over ouer computers
PC are very easy to control in comp with a netbook
a very simple rat can make a hacker gain full use of ur netbook
and netbooks are movable personal so he can hear & see every thing he want's of your daily life
attack these days are getting morecomplicated more advanced and harder to delete
but i think there is a security option we have
that hardware companies took it from us
and it's the Unplug it thing yes it's very easy yet it's not yet being applied
if there is a simple swich on the webcam and mice and it's turned off
no matter how is advanced the attak you are getting
it wont bypass it
so why Hardware manufacturer took that option from us
hell i didn't use the cam and mice since i got the laptop
and another example
why MB don't have a BIOS protection jumper ????????
i update my bios rarely Like once in a life time
why should i have my MB bios exposed to the Outside world
when a 1$ jumper can save my life
and BTW those switches and jumper are really really cheap
and tiny so they wont take space or money to make
so why do hardware companies cheap out on these stuff ?
i write this because i wish i can find in the future some considiration about that
