Android malware

A new malicious app has taken hold of about 10 million Android phones around the world. Security specialist Check Point says the software, which is called HummingBad, can take root in your phone, collecting your personal data and making it act like you've clicked on ads that you haven't.

HummingBad began as a "drive-by download attack," in which phones were infected when people visited websites. Once it installs, it allows hackers full access to your phone and its contents. This access is then used to generate fraudulent advertising revenue through the forced downloading of apps and clicking of ads.

A factory reset is most likely going to be needed to fix it if you are infected. Please be extremely cautious where you click!

Spotlight on SharePoint

SharePoint is a team collaboration tool that is included with many Office 365 plans. Over three-quarters of Fortune 500 companies use SharePoint, but they are not all using it for the same purpose. It is not one program but rather a platform for several different kinds of programs or business needs. SharePoint is not something you buy and install on your desktop but rather a back-end system that ties all your employees' PCs and mobile devices together, allowing them to communicate and synchronize their efforts.

Our Business Analysts and SharePoint experts can help you find the core solutions necessary to resolve business challenges you might be facing. SharePoint's simplicity and adaptability with other office products are two key elements which make it easy to add more features in future.
