As I sit down to compose this Villager report
in early January, I think about my New Year’s
resoluƟons. Yes I should eat more fruits and
vegetables and a lot fewer éclairs, yes I
should get more exercise and play more golf,
and yes I should go to church and pray a liƩle
more oŌen, but my overriding commitment
for 2015 is to get really serious about my
computer and internet security.
February 10th
2:00 pm
in the Town Hall
Jim Wilgus, Chair of the
Finance Committee, will
present a report and there
will be an update on the
Assisted Living
Yes I want simple, easy to remember passwords, but they can very easily be hacked.
Also earlier this year my computer was
hacked with a virus or malware or whatever
that required professional help to delete and
reinstall all of my MicrosoŌ XP operaƟng systems—a mulƟday, expensive event I don’t
want to repeat.
What to do: (1) Setup new strong passwords,
especially on your banking and broker accounts, or use password vault soŌware like
My Last Pass Vault; (2) Keep your computer
backed up with an independent drive or in a
secure cloud, (3) Treat all of your soŌware
and anƟ-virus soŌware updates very seriously and (4) Never, ever open an aƩachment
unless you know exactly who sent it to you
because many phony aƩachments appear to
be coming from a bank or broker when they
are actually being sent by hackers.
Now I have heard about a new, more serious
threat called ransom ware. Here the user will
get a popup on their computer saying “We
are Crypto Wall 2.0 and we have encrypted
all the data on your computer making it totally frozen and unusable by you. To get the
decrypƟon key, send us $500 this week or
next week it will be $1,000”. To compound
the ransom request, the ransom has to be
paid in Bit coins, but luckily the hackers provide detailed, easy to use instrucƟons on procuring Bit coins as well as the locaƟon of local Bit coin ATM’s. I don’t like to pay ransoms,
but I understand it’s the only way out. Cripto
Wall, based in Russia, has revenues in excess
of $100 million per year on this scam.
Good luck with this complex issue; I’m surely
going to need a lot of luck to slog through all
of these problems during the coming year.

An old adage tells us "When the One
Great Scorer comes to write against your
name, he writes not whether you won or lost,
but how you played the game."
As we cogitate, are we satisfied, as we
wait for the game to end? Are we sharing
our good fortune with others?
As the New Year unfolds we might give
it a thought, and act accordingly.
Tax deductible gestures, payable to
"AVT Healthcare Scholarship Fund", may be
placed in in-house mail boxes J-2 or BV-43
as a way of sharing with others.
