Apple Leaves Snow Leopard in the Cold, Users Vulnerable

Antivirus for Windows XP

Unlike their desktop/laptop rival Microsoft, Apple does not go out of its way to alert their user base that they are withdrawing support for a version of their Operating System. It just happens.

The last security update for Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) was released last September, but there was no announcement that support was ending.  However, a good clue was when Apple released important patches for the Safari browser, but did not include patches for the version used for OS X 10.6. If there was any mystery to it, the case is closed today as Apple has released security updates for OS X 10.7 and higher, leaving Snow Leopard users in the cold!

However you feel about Microsoft’s handling of XP and other issues, they at least publish their “Support Life-Cycle” schedule for all products. Microsoft phases out support by ending what they call “main stream support” first, including for warranty support and for related consumer products. They then end all “Extended Support”, most critically for security patches, 5 years later. It is no surprise that Windows XP extended support ends April 8th of this year.Antivirus for Windows XP

The problem for users of OS X10.6 and Windows XP is that hackers will zero in on them, knowing that any vulnerability they find will remain unpatched.  And they are substantial targets, with 20% of Mac users and almost 30% of Windows users operating these venerable but vulnerable platforms.

While we cannot recommend staying on an unsupported platform, we firmly believe that should be the choice of the computer user. You may have been abandoned by Apple and Microsoft, but not by Comodo.

 Comodo still has your back!

If for whatever reason you want to stay with OS 10.6 or XP, you can still obtain the best security protection available by using Comodo Internet Security and Comodo Antivirus for the Mac to, particularly against so-called “Zero-Day Attacks” where no known  fix for the specific vulnerability .  Both versions have features to deal with threats that are not currently addressed in the latest virus signature file, aka the blacklist.

Best of all, both versions have full featured editions that are 100% free without limited time periods..

Airgain announced the release of its OMNIMAX Next Dipole antennas, the latest addition to Airgain’s 5G product portfolio designed to deliver ultra-wideband connectivity for 5G NR sub-6GHz IoT and M2M applications.

The OMNIMAX Next Dipole series includes 5G NR sub-6GHz products for low profile and shock resistant outdoor applications, including “salt shaker” style antennas, indoor dipole “paddle” antennas, and outdoor “candlestick” dipole antennas.

Each product is designed to blend into the environment, with flexible mounting options while providing ultra-wideband connectivity for virtually any indoor or outdoor cellular module, modem, or gateway. The 5G ready OMNIMAX Next Dipole series provides future-proof performance, with backward compatibility from 5G to 4G and 3G global frequency bands.

“Supporting sub-6GHz 5G, particularly the lower bands approaching 600MHz, is challenging for the form factors of these products,” said Kevin Thill, Airgain’s Senior Vice President of Engineering.

“These antennas achieve excellent broadband performance without compromising the form factor, while outperforming competing solutions that we have seen in the market today. These antennas feature a unique and patent pending Coplanar Waveguide feed, which is key to enabling the ultra-wideband performance in the given form factors.

“We are excited to offer the expansion of our product portfolio of 5G ready antennas designed to accommodate wider bandwidth requirements demanded by 5G. The OMNIMAX Next Dipole series provides a cost-effective solution while delivering dependable quality.”

Building on Airgain’s antenna design expertise of CENTURION Next, the industry’s first 9-in-1 5G and Wi-Fi 6 fleet antenna, the OMNIMAX Next Dipole series includes 617 MHz to 6 GHz wideband cellular 5G support. OMNIMAX Indoor Dipole Next, OMNIMAX Outdoor Dipole Next, and M2M SN Next are available through our trusted channel partners or direct at 1-855-AIRGAIN.

Tom Finan on human imperfection and cyber security culture




A craftsman never blames their tools. It is not the systems  that ultimately fail cyber security professionals- it’s the people. Insider threats do abound but more often than malfeasance, misfeasance is the key to a breach. It wasn’t the firewall that failed Capitol One, it was a misconfiguration. Tom Finan dives in on culure vs. strategy quoting both Peter Drucker and…Barbara Streisand.  

Episode Overview

Covid 19 has changed 2020 in unprecedented ways in how we work, live our lives, and measure Cyber Risk. Listen to Episode #141 of Task Force 7 Radio as the Cyber Growth Leader from Willis Towers Watson, Tom Finan and Co-Host Andy Bonillo dive into how the “Cyber Security Superheroes” are working together to manage the human element during the pandemic. As claims data shows, effective Cyber Risk prevention and mitigation is largely a people problem. In response, companies need to assess and analyze the elements of their cultures that shape both positive and negative cyber attitudes and behaviors that makes the human element one of the largest risks to a company.

Axio announced a strategic partnership with cybersecurity consulting firm Archer. This partnership will merge Archer’s expertise in critical infrastructure protection with the Axio360 platform and allow clients to measure cyber risk exposure in financial terms and manage their cybersecurity program from a holistic point of view.

The Axio360 platform will assist Archer’s clients in identifying cyber risks across business units and threat vectors that may not have previously been considered. The platform estimates all-in costs of exposure and evaluates how specific controls and mitigations will reduce risk.

“The Axio platform was built to fundamentally redefine how organizations solve cybersecurity problems. Our intention is to enable business-centric decision-making by putting the risk in financial terms,” said Brendan T. Fitzpatrick, Senior Vice President of Channels & Partnerships for Axio.

“Our operating system aligns all key constituents and delivers clarity in real-time. This partnership with Archer allows our software to make critical infrastructure safer and more secure.”

“This partnership allows our asset owners to receive tailored recommendations from Axio and our dedicated team. For the first time, our clients will be able to measure their cybersecurity program and benchmark it across their industry peers,” stated Patrick C. Miller, Managing Partner for Archer.

“This collaboration will help the overall assessment and understanding of cybersecurity risk for critical infrastructure.”

Axio360’s methodology and software empowers organizations to continuously answer the four most critical questions for cyber risk:

  • What’s my exposure in financial terms?
  • How should I manage my cyber program?
  • Do I have the financial ability to recover?
  • Where should I invest?
