Cyclists rescue gigantic buck by its horns: When a cycling club in Granada, Spain, passed by a deer in desperate need of help, the brave bikers stepped right in to assist the drowning animal. The area had been hit by deadly flash flooding earlier in the month, and somehow the deer had gotten caught in one of the leftover puddles. The group was able to use a rope tied around the buck’s antlers to pull up the frightened buck far enough for it to get its hooves on the ground. It then bolted into the forest. None of the bikers was injured.


Polish ham from Travelez?: Consumer association Facua has filed a complaint against a international food distributor saying it is passing off Polish grown and produced ham as Spanish gourmet jamon.
It says that Comapa is selling the polish imposter product under the brand Trevedul, seeking to relate it to the town of Trevelez in Granada, which is famous for its hams that sell at a high premium.
The brand is widely distributed in Malaga province supermarkets.
Facua had denounced Comapa last March for selling bootleg hams, also from Poland, under the brand name Jamones Sierra Alpujarra, incorrectly identifying this product as originating in the Granada region. Full article: https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2019/09/29/fake-hams-for-sale-in-spain/


DoctorLaptop’s Computer News: Microsoft Finally Admits The Existence of Fileless Malware Hijacking Windows Computers. I have been warning clients about this malware for 2 years but Microsoft is only now addressing the problem.
The malware has been designed to turn infected Windows computers into proxies, which according to Microsoft, can then be used by attackers as a relay to hide illegal on-line activities; meanwhile Cisco Talos Security believes the proxies are used for click-fraud to generate revenue (fake clicks) for attackers who make false click count claims to advertising firms who pay for the artificially inflated totals.
The malware typically targets individual users (97% of detections), yet the Microsoft proposed solution is only available to their business clients (3% of detections). Microsoft logic confounds again! Common consumer level, signature based antivirus programs do not detect this kind of infection, even those with Passive heuristics analysis. There are specialized tools with advanced Active heuristics available to technicians to detect and remove this malware. These tools take a very long time to do their job as they must first observe the operating system running for a while to create a legit activity “baseline”, after which it can detect improper activity in action by spotting anomalous and malicious behaviors, such as the execution of scripts and tools. (Read more about heuristics at http://support.eset.com/kb127/). If you believe you have something in your computer accessing the internet other than your personal activity this malware is a possibility.
