Hi guys,
I hope you are well today. All is good here at Incognito Towers. 🙂 Today, I want to make you aware of two issues, one from Microsoft and one from a fake Facebook page.

Microsoft has just posted fixes for two actively exploited zero-day vulnerabilities that address malware attacks. One of the vulnerabilities involves the distribution of a malicious driver signed with a valid Microsoft certificate, while the other bypasses a security feature built into the Microsoft operating system designed to protect against malware. Both of these are huge issues for Windows users so please go and make sure you are running the latest version is right now by following these instructions:

* Click on the Start menu and select “Settings” (the gear icon).
* In the Settings menu, choose “Update & Security”.
* Select “Windows Update” from the sidebar.
* Click on “Advanced options”.
* Ensure “Automatically download updates, even over metered data connections” is checked (be aware this might incur charges if you’re on a metered connection).

Hackers have been using hijacked Facebook accounts to impersonate legitimate AI services such as OpenAI, aiming to trick unsuspecting users into installing malware on their systems. The hijacked pages utilised Facebook ads to push users to test new features supposedly, but instead, they installed malware on their systems. This malware is not just a nuisance, it’s a serious threat that can steal your banking information and take full control of your system remotely. One particular malware campaign infected 1.2 million users over a year. Please always check the links before you visit the webpage. Use the incognito website checker facility in the application, and it will tell you if the link is safe or not.

Please let us know if we can help you. Your privacy care team is always by your side.

I wish you all the best,
