Me hackearon, ¿qué hago?

México es el segundo país en América Latina con mayor número de amenazas en internet, detrás de Brasil.

Según el informe de seguridad de la firma Symantec, en 2016 el país recibió 13 amenazas de código malicioso, 8 de spam, tuvo 43 hosts de phishing, siete bots, seis ataques de la red y 37 ataques web. Y en términos de ransomware (hackers que secuestran equipos para pedir un rescate), obtuvo la posición 15 a escala global y la segunda en América Latina.

Whether the cat found us or we sought it out, those connections cannot be denied. These are the stories of some of those special cats and what they mean or meant to us.

That Kitty Mess Could Mean More Than You Think

Living with cats pretty much means living with a fair amount of kitty barf. For most of us, hearing the unmistakable sound of a cat upchucking means you drop everything and run for the paper towels.
