CloudFlare’s Access Restricted page.
I am using CloudFlare system (thanks to LiewCF) to protect my blog from threats and limit abusive bots and crawlers from wasting my bandwidth and server resources. But the problem is, this intelligent system is currently blocking me from accessing my own blog!
It is believed my computer or another computer on my network (P1 Wimax) has been infected by a virus and being used to send spam emails and attack websites. That is why CloudFlare has to block my connection and redirect me to their Access Restricted page (as you can see above).
I have contacted CloudFlare reagarding this issue. For the time being, I have to complete the CAPTCHA if I want to access my blog. But the good thing is, I know that I can trust CloudFlare because it is really can prevent my blog from threats and malicious traffic attacks. 🙂
Everyday, I will login into my Facebook account to check the updates from my friends and also to reply their comments. But at the Facebook login page, I always change the protocol from HTTP to HTTPS (also known as Hyper Text Transfer Protocol with Secure Socket Layer) before I login. This is to ensure when I clicked the submit button, my username and password transmitted across the network to the Facebook server are secured.
Use HTTPS instead of HTTP
Why is it important to login using HTTPS instead of HTTP? From what I know, when you browsing using HTTP, the data sending from your browser to the server is not encrypted. A hacker with his knowledge and skills will able to capture the packets and can read the data as plain text.

USB WriteProtector is a freeware software that can enable or disable the write function to USB through Windows registry. When you choose, “USB write protection ON”, USB WriteProtector will change the USB write value in registry to 0. When the write function is disabled, we cannot write anything such as paste, save, or create new files in our connected USB drives. To enable the USB write function, just choose “USB write protection OFF” to allow write access to our USB drives.
