  • System backups – It is essential to have a plan for recovering from a system failure. An attacker could crash a computer’s operating system or data may be corrupted or wiped out by a hardware problem. Computers can be lost, stolen, or destroyed in a fire or other catastrophe.
  • Installing critical and security updates – Critical security patches are perhaps the most important updates to apply to your system. Ignoring these could leave your computer or server extremely vulnerable to hackers and malicious code.
  • Defragmenting the hard drive – Over the time files can become fragmented or separated, thrown into random directories When this happens, it takes your computer longer to scan the hard drive to locate those blocks of information it needs to perform a task, which decreases the computer’s speed and performance.
  • Monitoring the drive space – It is important to monitor the amount of available storage space on your disk because programs might fail due to an inability to allocate space.
  • Disk cleanup – Disk cleanup utility searches and analyses the hard drive for files that are no longer of any use, and then removes the unnecessary files, temporary logs and much more.
  • Checking the event logs on the PC – Event logs can give you early warning of impending system issues and save you from unexpected disasters. We can also trace security events that can reveal someone making a sustained effort to access a customer system in unexpected circumstances.
  • 24 x 7 PC health check – Our automated script runs on your systems in regular intervals and let us know if there are any issues with your hard drive or other hardware.

New ransomware called Bad Rabbit is taking over computers across Europe.It’s locking users out of their machines and demanding money from them, but security experts are warning people not to pay up.It’s currently unclear if infected computers can be fully restored, but there are ways to protect yourself from the cyber attack.

The criminals behind Bad Rabbit are tricking people into infecting themselves, by disguising the malware as an Adobe flash installer and planting it on legitimate websites that have been compromised.
After infecting one machine in a network – one computer in an office, for example – Bad Rabbit can find any login details stored on the machine which it uses to spread to others, security researchers have claimed.
Dos and Don’ts

  • Do not install any flash updates that appear on your screen asking you to install.
  • Do keep anti-virus software up to date.
  • Do not click any links on a suspicious email.
  • Do not give any sensitive information through email

As always, please feel free to contact Majestic Computer Technology for any help.


Nearly $28,000 has been stolen from Australians this year by scammers pretending to be the NBN in order to steal money and personal information.
Scamwatch has already received 316 complaints this year related to scams impersonating the NBN, according to the ACCC.
“Scammers are increasingly using trusted government brands like NBN to trick people into falling for scams,” ACCC deputy chair Delia Rickard said. “Their goal is always to either get hold of your money or personal information.”

One of the most common scams involves scammers ringing victims to connect them to an NBN service and demanding payment with an iTunes gift card.
Rickard said that Australians over 65 are particularly vulnerable to cold calls from scammers, who often demand payment via iTunes gift cards. “Legitimate businesses, especially those like NBN, will never ask you to pay for anything in this way,” Rickard said.
“NBN will never phone you out of the blue to try to sign you up to a service over its network. NBN is a wholesaler, meaning they don’t sell direct to the public. If you get an unsolicited call like this, it’s a big red flag that you are dealing with a scammer,” Rickard said.
“NBN will also never call you to remotely ‘fix’ a problem with your computer, or to request personal information like your Medicare number or your bank account numbers. Do not listen to the reasons they give you for needing this information.”
Rickard advised Australians to hang up and contact their retail service provider if they were in doubt about a caller purporting to be from the NBN.
