Ah, passwords, the keys to modern living. It seems you can’t go anywhere or do anything these days without a password. You workstation needs a password, your gym needs a password, even your trusty buddy the cell phone may need a password. With so many passwords it’s tempting to make life easy and just have one master key, or password to make life simple. While this may be easy, it’s definitely not secure and you risk putting in danger every access point where you use that “master key.”
It brings to mind the old castle housekeeper with gigantic ring of keys to every room in the castle. What a burdensome load to carry. Wouldn’t a master key be better? Yes it would, but one stolen key and the whole castle is breached.

Phishing scams and malware infected sites are some of the many problems that the Abuse & Security Department is in assigned to handle here at HostDime. It’s also one of the most common issues that we will find when clients inform us of warning labels placed on their sites.
Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers are featured with “Phishing and Malware Protection” which will alert the visitor that the page they are about to view may try to steal their information. The alert message is spawned from a published list of known attack sites which is maintained by Google and StopBadware.org.
The primary reason this message will appear is either a phishing scam attempting to lure the visitor into updating their personal information on fake (but very real looking) website, or malicious scripts that have been injected into the source of the website which cause your browser to download malware.
