Adobe Being Sued By US Goverment

The US government has sued software giant Adobe, accusing it of violating consumer protection laws with "hidden" termination fees and a convoluted cancellation process.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) said the firm had failed to clearly disclose its terms to customers, including the year-long length of a subscription and charges that would be triggered for cancelling early.

In its complaint, the agency said Adobe had refused to modify its behaviour because it would hurt the company financially.

Adobe disputed the claims and said it would fight the lawsuit.

London hospitals Hack: Cyber-Criminals "Sorry"

The cyber-criminals responsible for causing major disruption at London hospitals say they are “sorry" for all the harm caused but are “not to blame”.

The London hospitals hack was first announced on 3 June when pathology service provider Synnovis said all its IT systems were offline.

It meant that blood tests and information-sharing could not be carried out using the normal computerised systems.

According to NHS London, five planned C-sections were rescheduled and 18 organs were diverted for use by other trusts, while 736 hospital outpatient appointments and 125 community outpatient appointments had to be postponed.

🛡️ Security Corner 🛡️

Social media is a great way to stay in touch with family, friends and keep up to date on the latest news. However, it’s important to know how to manage the security and privacy settings on your accounts, so that your personal information remains inaccessible to anyone but you.

2-step verification (often shortened to 2SV and sometimes called two-factor authentication) provides a way of 'double checking' that you really are the person you are claiming to be when you're using online services, such as social media, banking or email.

It's worth exercising some caution when using social media. Not everyone using social media is necessarily who they say they are. Take a moment to check if you know the person, and if the friend/link/follow is genuine.
