Get Rid of Stubborn Trojan On Your Android Device

I scanned the QR code for an app to install it...nothing seemed to happen... after awhile I just saw displayed on the screen that my smartphone is loading some applications!

These apps continued to install automatically, then my phone storage space got filled up, my phone unresponsive, restarts by itself...too late... definite sign of malicious software infection.



The energy saver started showing in the notification bar, I checked apps installed and saw the Cleaner app, an app with the name Google having a suspicious Google Chrome-like icon... I couldn't believe that I have just opened my mobile phone up to a very stubborn Trojan with my very own hand!

In my quest to get rid of this infestation, I downloaded Eset Antivirus from the Google Play store and ran a scan afterwards, I realised from the scan that these Trojan-laced apps are installed as system apps and will not allow me to uninstall them!

I did a factory reset and behold these apps remained entrenched! 

I tried other Antivirus apps without success, the ones that do detect these trojans, once I click on remove/ quarantine my phone will just reboot ...


Then I installed and ran Kaspersky... Kaspersky did the job!




 

Do you have stubborn Trojan, Virus on your Android device? I recommend Kaspersky 100%.

How a Canadian Boy's Sexual Orientation Got Mixed Up

This story is culled from CBC Canada's website

A Canadian Woman who dresses her son like a girl, recalled walking out of the court room in shock after a judge ordered her 4-year-old son not be allowed to wear feminine clothing in public.

The Woman recounted that her young son, who is now 5, first started telling her he was a girl. Over time he became more insistent, introducing himself as a girl to others, and when she'd say things like "you're such a good boy" he would act out in frustration and anger.

At age 4, just out of the blues on a fateful day the boy posed her a question, "Mom, at what age did your penis fall off?" A few days later she says he woke up in the middle of the night telling her he was going to cut off his penis.

The Woman says she doesn't know if her child is just curious, or is transgender, but she says it doesn't matter to her. She says what does matter is that the courts respect the right to one's gender expression (that being a 5-year-old boy's!).

The child's father who is separated from her but shares custody on learning of this served her with papers seeking primary custody, blaming her for the child's gender confusion and anxiety.

The two were in a family court in Medicine Hat, Canada in December, 2015, the judge, Judge D.G. Redman kept the Woman as primary caregiver, but in his interim order, said the child will not be permitted to wear clearly female clothes in public, but if he chooses, he could do so in private. 

Then earlier this year in February the case went before Judge F.C. Fisher and in his interim order, he again stated the clothing restriction and granted primary custody to the father. The Woman was given limited access.

She plans to launch a human rights complaint against the two judges. And continue to fight to regain primary custody.

"I'm not going to hide under a rock and just give up, this is still a big fight." She said.

Apple iOS 10 Here: It Is Message-centric!

"Big, Bold, Beautiful," is what Apple is saying about its latest operating system expected to launch this year, 2016.
A lot of innovative and fun way of messaging is packed into the new software.

Messaging Can Be Fun and iSpiced*

Some of the spice you can add to messaging using iOS 10: 

1. Include short spoken words like "Happy Birthday, Jane" in your message, your friend receives your message in full screen with cool animation.
2. You can choose how you want your message bubbles to display.
3.Write your message with hand on the screen, your recipient get to see it been written on his phone screen just as ink flows on paper.
4. Send invisible message or photo that only gets revealed when you swipe on the screen of the phone to reveal it.
5. A lil busy and a message comes in? Just tap on the screen of your phone to send a quick customized message back!
6. Add personal touches to messages, videos by including sketches of your own, heartbeats, fireballs, and more.
7. Say it with emoji with a simple touch. isn't it?
8. The iMessage apps can easily access your favorite apps to create and share content, make payments, and more, without leaving Messages.

Other Features of the iOS 10
Security iOS 10 uses on-device intelligence to identify the people, objects and scenes in Photos, and power QuickType suggestions. And ensures that when you do share sensitive data with Apple for services like Siri and Maps, it’s always encrypted and never used to build user profile thereby keeping your information safe and secure.
Improved SiriSiri is now accessible by apps from the App Store,e.g. you can ask it to send money to someone with Square.
Home for Smart-home. The new Home app lets you turn on lights, unlock doors, and even raise your window shades — all at once if you like.
Maps -  you can make reservations e.g. book a table through apps like OpenTable.

You can search along your route. See what’s around the corner and easily find the closest places for gas, food, or coffee. Maps even tells you how much extra time it will take to arrive.
Music - Redesigned, the simple, intuitive design makes it even easier to enjoy your favorite songs and you can also view the lyrics while you’re listening to them.
Raise to wake. Simply pick up your iPhone to wake it up. Your notifications will be there waiting for you.
Touch and go. Use 3D Touch in apps like Calendar, Weather, and Stocks for a quick glance at the information you need.
Rich notifications. View photos and videos or respond to a message right in your notifications.
Contextual predictions. Typing is quicker and easier than ever. When you type something like “I’m available at,” the free time in your calendar pops up as an option.
News, redesigned makes it easier to find the stories that matter to you most.
Search for photos by people or things in them, like a beach, a football game, or a puppy.
The Photos app can help you rediscover cherished memories — like a weekend hike or your baby’s first birthday — and even create beautiful movies out of them.
Apple Pay on the web enhances your online shopping experience. It is now faster, safer, and more private than ever. Just browse, then pay in your browser.
Multilingual typing. Now you can type in two languages at the same time without having to switch between keyboards.

iSpiced* - coined by me, means spiced up iPhone (Apple's) way.
