The increasing number of electronic goods produced, it also makes the amount of electronic waste produced also increases every year.
Recently, the WEEE Forum has released a report which states that there is an increase in global e-waste production by 2 metric tons or 3-4 per cent every year.
In 2021, it is predicted that the total electronic waste generated could reach 57.4 million metric tons, which of course must be addressed immediately.
Pascal Leroy as the General of the WEEE Forum also said that there are several reasons that cause electronic waste to increase, one of which is the lack of awareness of people to return used electronic goods so that they can be recycled again.
“As long as people don’t return used goods, damaged equipment, sell them, or even donate them, we still have to mine new materials, which of course damage the environment,” said Leroy, quoted from Eurekalert.
But now a number of big countries such as Europe are starting to implement policies to reduce electronic waste, one of which is making a standard USB Type-C port for gadgets from various brands.
In addition, eliminating the charger adapter in every iPhone purchase is also a pretty good effort in reducing the excessive electronic waste production.
How to Improve the Security of Your Home Network Easy
Securing your home network is essential to protect your personal information and devices from cyber threats like hacking, malware, and viruses. In this guide, we will go over some easy steps to improve your home network’s security and keep your data safe.
1. Change the default login credentials
The first step in securing your home network is to change the default login credentials for your router. Most routers come with a default username and password that are easy for hackers to guess. By changing the login credentials to a unique and strong combination of letters, numbers, and symbols, you can make it much harder for hackers to gain access to your network.
To change the login credentials for your router, log into the router’s web interface using the default login credentials. Once you are logged in, look for the “admin” or “security” settings and change the username and password to something unique and hard to guess.
2. Enable WPA2 encryption
Another essential step in securing your home network is to enable WPA2 encryption. WPA2 is the strongest encryption standard currently available for wireless networks and provides an extra layer of security to protect your data from hackers.
To enable WPA2 encryption, log into your router’s web interface and look for the “wireless” settings. Once you are in the wireless settings, look for the option to enable WPA2 encryption and enter a strong password to secure your network.
3. Disable Remote Management
Many routers come with the option to remotely manage the router settings. While this can be convenient, it also poses a security risk as hackers can gain access to your router settings from outside your home.
To disable remote management, log into your router’s web interface and look for the “admin” or “security” settings. Once you are in these settings, look for the option to disable remote management and turn it off.
4. Keep your router firmware up to date
Keeping your router firmware up to date is an important step in securing your home network. Router manufacturers often release updates that fix known security vulnerabilities, so it is important to install these updates as soon as they become available.
To check for updates to your router firmware, log into your router’s web interface and look for the “admin” or “security” settings. Once you are in these settings, look for the option to check for firmware updates and install any updates that are available.
5. Use a VPN
A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a great way to secure your home network and protect your personal information from hackers. A VPN encrypts all of the data that is sent and received over your network, making it much harder for hackers to intercept your data.
To use a VPN, you will need to sign up for a VPN service and install the VPN software on your devices. Once you have the VPN software installed, you can connect to a VPN server and all of the data that is sent and received over your network will be encrypted.
6. Use a Firewall
A firewall is a security system that monitors and controls incoming and outgoing network traffic. A firewall can help to protect your home network from hackers and malware by blocking incoming traffic that is known to be malicious.
To use a firewall, you can either install a software firewall on your devices or purchase a hardware firewall that can be connected to your router. Once the firewall is set up, it will monitor all incoming and outgoing network traffic and block any traffic that is known to be malicious.
7. Use an Antivirus
An antivirus is a software that can detect and remove malware and viruses from your computer. It can also help to prevent malware and virus.
Lee Young-hee Becomes Samsung’s First Female President
South Korean technology giant Samsung Electronics Co appointed Lee Young-hee as President of the Global Marketing Center for Samsung’s Device eXperience (DX) Division which oversees its mobile business.
As reported by Antara, Monday (5/12/2022), this is Samsung’s new history of appointing a woman to a high position.
Lee Young-hee is the first female president of Samsung, South Korea’s largest conglomerate, to come from outside the founding family.
Meanwhile Lee Boo-jin, the first daughter of the late Samsung Electronics Chairman Lee Kun-hee, currently serves as President and Chief Executive of Hotel Shilla, which is an affiliate of Samsung.
Lee Young-hee worked at L’Oreal before joining Samsung in 2007. Five years later, he was promoted to vice president.
Samsung expects this promotion to be an opportunity for other talented female employees to challenge themselves and climb the career ladder.
Malware on Android Steals Facebook Accounts, 300,000 Users Become Victims
Regarding security issues, recently Zimperium through its official page reported that there is a malware campaign that is happening on Android devices, where the device will be infected with a trojan horse and steal Facebook user credentials recently.
According to Zimperium, this threat has been active since 2018 and more generally targets comic and novel readers in Vietnam. The Trojan Horse itself is named “Schoolyard Bully” and is found in various applications that can be downloaded from the Google Play Store including third-party apps with the same title.
So, more or less, for example, like in the picture above, where this application pretends to be an educational application with various books and topics for users to read, including Novels and Comics, but the real purpose of the application is to steal information such as:
- Name on Facebook profile
- ID Facebook
- Facebook email/phone number
- Facebook password
- Device name
- device APIs
- device RAM
Worse, according to Zimperium, there have been at least 300,000 victims from 71 countries, but the exact number of these countries has not been reported because these malicious applications are still found in third-party app stores.
“Facebook reaches nearly 2.96 billion monthly users and continues to be the number one social media platform. As attackers leverage the Schoolyard Bully Trojan to gain unauthorized access to credentials, they have far more success accessing financial accounts. Nearly 64% of individuals use the same password that was exposed in a previous breach. With the percentage of users recycling passwords, it is no surprise the Schoolyard Bully Trojan has been active for years.” Ungkap Zimperium
Now for Zimperium users, remind that users should read the application reviews before downloading and interacting interactively in it, and also make sure to pay attention to the permission requests requested by the application.
