Does Tor browser support a java plugin?
No, don't think so. It's a secure site. Any insecurity would likely be
in your browser; presence of *possibly* insecure plugins (you mention
java) and / or extensions (addons); or lack of some security enhancing
addons (NoScript & others).
And if you download TOR, are there any insecure parts of the process?
any ideas or validation would be nice. I have two weeks to get my
business up and running as its cost me years of work - and a month of
unbelievability at the obviousness of specific interference in the open.
I unfortunately, by reacting to secure my and my daughters and my
friends and business info, almost cover up any evidence someone doesn't
pilfer before hand i realised.
Don't know what this means.
1st, if looking for privacy & a provider not data mining; using mined
data or sharing, selling it, etc., Google / Gmail & many other large
providers aren't the places for you.
Some details possibly missing. Were you running a business email acct
w/ lots of traffic under a free, individual user acct?
Though I don't really care for Gmail (I have a "junk" acct), their spam
filters are generally pretty good (in my *free* acct).
Like the gmail account - libertyblueberry@xxxxxxxxx - attacked
immediately with DNS, spam, and delayed emails - and accessed by
google and had account information added not associated with me.
Did you read Google's TOS? It's straight forward that they'll take /
use almost everything except your 1st born child. Most businesses don't
use Gmail, Yahoo, etc., email accts - for the reasons you mention.
It is deleted now - after google got sensitive info without actually
doing anything - so denying and pass on the info to others maybe.
Spotify, Elance, Peopleperhour, Australia Post, ASIC, ANZ - all -
gathered identifiable info, delayed, cross referenced,
But you have to, if you want your data, transactions & business to be
reasonably safe. Every technology requires some knowledge & expertise
to use it properly & safely. Internet's no different.
If you're setting up business accts- on websites, email - & you don't
have the knowledge & expertise to put proper safeguards & security in
place, *you may need to hire professionals.*
Don't have the money? What if your car breaks down & you don't have the
knowledge to fix it?
im not one to watch my back all the time and
constantly redoing the same checks on my info is tiring
