CrossLoop, which is an excellent desktop sharing software, could also be the next Elance for

hiring tech support professionals who can remotely fix your computer problems in real-time.

Today, they have launched CrossLoop 2.0 that adds a “social” element to this already popular remote desktop sharing software and makes it extremely lucrative to IT Helpdesk staff and tech support personnel.

You can now create a personal profile on CrossLoop website that details your areas of expertise. When you provide remote help to others using CrossLoop, they can rate the session and that feedback is automatically added to your public profile.

See some screenshots of CrossLoop 2.0:

This “CrossLoop reputation” will become an important factor when you go beyond friends and family and decide to provide professional help to potential customers. They can view your history on CrossLoop and decide whether they want to avail your service or not.

Going forward, this CrossLoop database could become the one-stop shop for finding good tech support personnel. And best of all, CrossLoop is still free.

The only downside is that CrossLoop is only available for Windows so they could be missing a large chunk of users who may be running Mac or Linux platforms. In April, Mrinal did hint that were are planning to make CrossLoop available across various platforms.

Cyber Criminals Focusing Home Computer Users

When it comes to cyber crimes, a new research has found that hi-tech criminals are now turning away from targeting big firms, and are focussing their attention on home computer users.

Security firm Symantec found that cyber criminals are increasingly targeting home PC owners as a lack of security systems mean that they are the easiest prey in the market.

Symantec found that there had been an 81 percent rise in bogus email messages that are attempting to con unsuspecting owners into revealing personal as well as banking details.

In its bi-annual Internet Threat Report, Symantec revealed that more than 157,000 unique ‘phishing’ messages were sent to home PCs during the first six months of 2006.

Ollie Whitehouse, Symantec research scientist and one of the authors of the report, said that the trend showed that home users had become targets as they were the weakest link.

"Organised crime is here and they are very interested in phishing. They target home users who have become the weakest link," the BBC quoted him, as saying.

The study found that only 50 percent of home users ignore phishing e-mail messages, and that 3.8 percent also respond to an unsolicited e-mail about their online accounts.

As far as security measures go, the survey also found that only 46.3 percent of home users keep their anti-virus software up to date, and only 10 percent have spam-stopping software installed on their computers.

Symantec has now offered a list of measures that can help home users spruce up their security and ensure that they are safe while online. The list is as follows:

1. Install anti-virus software on at least a weekly basis update anti-virus and spyware products

2. Install a personal firewall and/or ensure your operating system's firewall is on

3. Use Windows and Apple updates to patch security holes

4. Do not open e-mail messages that look suspicious

5. Do not click on e-mail attachments you were not expecting

6. Take time to educate yourself and family about the risks

7. Monitor your computer and stay alert to threats
