An editorial piece in the New York Times caught my eye this past week. Here’s how it begins:

“Internet users used to comfort themselves by thinking that to become victims of the pirates of the Web, they had to frequent the online porn circuit or respond to an e-mail from the widowed wife of the former central bank governor of Nigeria. The idea was that one had to do something naughty to get caught in the wrongdoers’ net, or at least go for a late-night stroll in the rough end of town.”


As we’re here doing business as usual at Lavasoft, we’re also thinking about the bigger picture – making the world a better, safer place for us all.


Navigating Networks

by Jason on May 4th, 2009 in Comment.

You would be hard-pressed not to notice all of the references in the news these days to the growing use of social networking sites. At the same time, thanks to the ever-changing tactics of opportunistic cyber criminals, we’re equally bombarded with news of all the real and potential threats abounding on these sites.  

As a consumer, it’s truly becoming more and more difficult to navigate the Web safely, networking sites included.


Holiday Wish Lists

by Jason on October 25th, 2007 in Industry and Security News.

It's not even November, and holiday shopping is already becoming a hot topic. Figures show that this online shopping season could reach record numbers. Shoppers in the U.S. alone are expected to spend more than $39 billion online.


Something to keep in mind - Lavasoft is so very aware of what directly affects our customers - you do a great job keeping us informed of what is happening in your computing lives. We'll soon be addressing one of the major e-mail annoyances and will release a new spam filter to help you combat the barrage of spam that must be invading your e-mail inbox on a daily basis now.


Moving Forward

by Jason on August 23rd, 2007 in News about Lavasoft.

Now in my third week as CEO of Lavasoft, I've had a chance (a brief one, at that) to catch my breath and write a few of my thoughts on this new position and on where I plan to lead Lavasoft in the coming months, and beyond.

This position is certainly a challenge, but it is one I am excited to take on in terms of realizing the opportunities we have before us and shaping the future of Lavasoft, at the same time renewing our commitment to protect computer users worldwide.
