Netiquette IQ term of The day - third-party cookie




third-party cookie
A third-party cookie is a small amount of code that is placed on a website visitor's hard disk; this particular type of cookie is referred to as "third party" because it originates from a website domain other than the one a user is visiting.

A cookie is a mechanism that allows the server to store its own information about a user on the user's own computer. The data stored in the cookie lets the server know with whom it is interacting so it can send the correct information back to the user. Cookies that originate from the site the visitor actually visits are referred to as first-party cookies.

In marketing, the vast majority of programmatic ad providers rely on third-party cookies to find, identify and target prospects on the web. Business uses include serving personalized online ads, cross-site tracking and retargeting sales prospects. Third-party cookies can be blocked through browser settings and security settings that enforce "same origin policy."

By default, the Firefox browser blocks all third-party cookies and Google recently announced it will take major steps to "fundamentally enhance privacy on the web" by limiting third-party cookies in Chrome, which is currently the world's most popular browser.

Blocking third-party cookies has created a problem for lead generation data brokers and ad serving firms, whose business models depend upon being able to place ads that follow a particular user as they travel around the Internet.

Because third-party blocking can negatively impact online lead generation, marketers have experimented with ways to circumvent third-party cookie blocking by using canvas fingerprinting, respawning cookies, Flash cookies and entity tags (Etags).

Artificial intelligence technology is also helping advertisers to connect brands with consumers through hyperpersonalized automated advertising. This marketing strategy uses first-party cookies, machine learning and predictive analytics to recommend relevant products and improve ad placement. Continue reading...

Original release date: February 11, 2020
Microsoft has released updates to address multiple vulnerabilities in Microsoft software. A remote attacker could exploit some of these vulnerabilities to take control of an affected system.
The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) encourages users and administrators to review Microsoft’s February 2020 Security Update Summary and Deployment Information and apply the necessary updates.

Good Netiquette And A Green Internet To All! 



++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


Every year millions of Americans find themselves unable to vote because they miss a registration deadline, don’t update their registration, or aren’t sure how to register.

Our partners at Vote Forward have made it easy to contact historically under-represented, not-yet-registered voters living in key 2020 swing states to provide them with everything they need to register to vote.

air gapping
Air gapping is a security measure that involves physically isolating a computer or network to prevent it from connecting directly or wirelessly to other systems that can connect to the Internet. Air gapping is used to protect many types of critical systems, including those that support the stock market, the military, the government and industrial power industries.
To prevent unauthorized data extrusion through electromagnetic or electronic exploits, there must be a specified amount of space between the air-gapped system and outside walls and between its wires and the wires for other technical equipment. In the United States, the U.S. National Security Agency TEMPEST project provides best practices for using air gaps as a security measure.

For a system with extremely sensitive data, a Faraday cage can be used to prevent electromagnetic radiation (EMR) escaping from the air-gapped equipment. Although such measures may seem extreme, van Eck phreaking can be used to intercept data such as key strokes or screen images from demodulated EMR waves, using special equipment from some distance away. Other proof-of-concept (POC) attacks for air- gapped systems have shown that electromagnetic emanations from infected sound cards on isolated computers can be exploited and continuous wave irradiation can be used to reflect and gather information from isolated screens, keyboards and other computer components.

As of this writing, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is awarding grants for prototype hardware and software designs that will keep sensitive data physically isolated. The grants are made possible under the Guaranteed Architecture for Physical Security (GAPS) program.

Enhancing air-gapped security measures

The problem with physical separation as a security technique is that, as complexity increases in some system or network to be isolated, so does the likelihood that some unknown or unauthorized external connection will arise.

Perhaps the most important way to protect a computing device or network from an air gap attack is through end user security awareness training. The infamous Stuxnet worm, which was designed to attack air-gapped industrial control systems, is thought to have been introduced by infected thumb drives found by employees or obtained as free giveaways.
The software-defined perimeter (SDP) framework is another tool network engineers can use to create a type of "virtual air gapping" through policy enforcement. SDP requires external endpoints that want to access internal infrastructure to comply with authentication policies and ensures that only authenticated systems can see internal IP addresses.


In my books, noted below, I often lament about the lack of civility, deterioration of written communication and abuse of the power of the Internet. Electronic communication, in my opinion, breeds negativity and behavior which does not exist in direct communication. 

The following is an except from my first book which addresses angry email replies.
