This article will show you very briefly how to assign your own scores for Spam Assassin tests or simply influence the default rule set.
I write this article because I know some hosting providers (such as Namecheap) provide Spam Assassin as an ‘out of the box’ anti-spam solution and I know that some of the cpanel menus that support Spam Assassin aren’t as intuitive or helpful as they could be to help guide this process.
If you’re like me and you’ve recently had a new/replacement bank card, you will have probably noticed a slight change in the appearance of your new card.
The new wireless-looking symbol represents contactless payment capabilities based on radio frequency technology. This means that, in theory, you can make low transaction payments (up to £20 as of this article I believe) simply by tapping on an EPOS terminal without entering your PIN, probably saving you about half a minute every time you make such a payment.
If you have problems loading folders or e-mails in Outlook.com/hotmail you’re not the only one.
In the last couple of weeks I noticed this problem on my personal hotmail account; I would repeatedly click e-mails and folders whilst watching that annoying ‘load bar’ scroll across the top of the page.
WPS stands for wi-fi protected set-up. It’s supposed to make it easier for non-tech savvy people to authenticate devices on to a wireless network by pressing a physical button on the router or entering a PIN in to a device to make it known to the network.
The problem with WPS is quite a big one. There are many fundamental flaws in the WPS model – I won’t go through these in this article but a simple Google search will expose these many vulnerabilities in WPS – one which I discovered by accident today is a relatively (scarily) easy denial of service on an end-users network.
