Nefarious Domain Names
Covid-19 domain name
registration is on the rise.
Why? While numerous Coronavirus
domain name registrations are
for legitimate purposes, many
are not. Hackers use the domain
names to lure unsuspecting
people into scams that seek cash
or load malware onto their
systems. One such domain,
"vaccinecovid-19\ .com" offers a

into clicking links that

malware. Beware of subject lines
or emails that contain

spoofed, so the link may not be
from who you think.

click on a link or offer
information online, be sure you
know where you are on the
internet. If you wouldn't give
your credit card info to a
shady-looking street vendor,
don't offer it on an unknown

like trying to figure out what color, the letter
seven, smells like.

long it takes this police sketch artist to realize
I'm describing him.

pretty annoying" but I only focus on the positive

We featured Quick Assist, the remote connection tool
built into Windows 10, in the
November 2020 Newsletter. With remote work
becoming more common, I thought offering another
option would be appropriate. Distant Desktop offers
several features Quick Assist does not.
Desktop is currently free for both personal and
professional use. The program is completely portable,
which means there is nothing to install. Click the
executable file on each PC, share the User ID and
password, and you can remotely connect with another
Secure file transfers are available,
allowing you to share files during your remote
session. Text and voice chat (requires a microphone)
are features that promote communicating while remotely
connected. A demonstration mode allows you to share
your PC without giving anyone remote control.
You can white list people you trust to connect to your
PC making Distant Desktop even more secure.
