Being Secure in using Instant Messaging on Your PC

Real time internet-based messaging software has been around for about ten years now and its usage is now pretty wide. These kinds of programs give you the illusion of a customized chat server attached to your PC but, in reality, the majority of them are actually just scripted add-ons or additions to email servers. They support not only instant message transfer but a host of favorites and contact functions to keep in contact with friends. Like email, these automated message systems support an instantaneous transfer of a message – or text response – just like chat. However, there is a growing awareness that unlike a chat server that resides in the data center of a provider, an email provider-driven instant messaging system allows for a much greater exposure to cyber crime and unauthorized access to your PC.

Many of the latest versions of the IMS craze allow the transfer of data files and scripted audio and video. However, these systems are now the subject of growing security breaches and virus transfer. When you open a file that is transferred in this manner it is the same as opening an attached file on an email message from someone you do not know. This may include a downloaded file with an attached virus. This can facilitate the download and installation of a virus onto your PC. Because of this growing concern it is now advisable to consider restricted access to these instant message systems. Here are the things you should do to protect yourself from the security breaches that are being sustained now.

Always be sure to communicate with a potential instant message contact first by regular email or other communication mediums. This will prevent the initiation of a series of exchanges the objective of which is to get you to download a graphic file of her beautiful face. Secondly, never open or allow the transmission of any file, attachment, graphic or picture record via instant messaging as a result of an I-message conversation. Forcing yourself to take the steps necessary to validate the security of a data source before accepting any file, record, or attachment on a message from it is just smart.

Next, never download and install any software that is described – especially by unknown email or instant message – as being from a hot new dating or singles site. These are normally infected with viruses. Finally, as a follow-on from the previous point, never accept any request from any instant message when on a music, porn or video site. These are also highly suspect these days.

One of the other things you can do to minimize your exposure to cyber crime involving instant messaging is to locate and purchase a top registry software package that cleanses your registry of bogus records automatically. They also delete instant message-created DLLs and do other registry fix functions that accomplish any needed Registry Repair.

So, what about Skype security?




With the wide selection of PC users using Skype, many wonder just how secure this new means of instant messaging is. Can other people read the conversations that are held through the instant messaging system in Skype? What about phone calls, can they be recorded, can they be heard by 3rd parties? Since Skype is used by a lot of organizations, wondering is Skype secure is a very practical question for many.
Skype is for the most part secure. All conversations whether voice, video or instant messaging are encrypted with strong encryption algorithms. This makes the calls private and secure. That being said, there can be ways that these conversations can be unprotected. One way can be if one of the participants in the conversation is using Skype software that has been modified, or the calls are being routed thru servers and other phone networks. Once these elements are brought into play, the security can be breached and it is possible that a conversation can become unsecure.
Skype also adds protection to their system, by making sure that the software one needs to download is free of adware, malware and spyware. This means that nothing that is downloaded with the software will produce intrusive advertisements, nothing will log ones activities and there should be no programs that will cause problems to ones computer. It still is possible that a person or business could have downloaded some of these troublesome programs through another source, that is why it is recommended that one use an antivirus program on a regular basis and keep it up to date.




Skype strives to keep its customer’s data secure. They do, however, have to cooperate with local law enforcement. When the need arises, Skype will do what they can legally to provide assistance to a law enforcement agency that requests such information. They do not disclose personal or other information unless they have an authorized lawful request in compliance with local laws. Even though the main company is located in Luxembourg, they have local partners, operators or companies that provide personal data, communications and other such services. This makes the local laws applicable in most cases.

Biggest Three Instant Messengers Of The World.

Depending on who you ask, the biggest 3 instant messengers are going to be different. For each PC user who uses an IM there is another one who will use something different, and enjoy it more, declare that it works better and is more secure.

The top notch and most often used messenger will of course be the MSN messenger which ships with Windows operating systems. While this version of the instant messenger service is not necessarily the best, it is the most widely used version of any instant messenger simply, we believe, because it is included with new versions of Windows operating systems.

Secondary to MSN messenger is Skype, the messenger which also permits telephone calls and offers discounted rates to callers in multiple countries. Many people are in actuality not aware that Skype permits instant messaging, but do use the service for telephone calls, which does add them to the count of total users.

Although AOL Instant Messenger, or AIM as it is called now, was once the largest as well as internet service provider in the country, it has lost ground significantly, in part due to the cheaper and better internet services that are currently on the market. As it lost ground as an ISP, the messenger too began to lose steam. One of three people say that they have AIM installed on their PC but do not use the instant messaging client.

For sheer numbers, the top three currently in use are MSN, Skype, and AIM instant Messengers. The three are used by myriad millions of users world wide.

Other clients which claim a share are:
ICQ, the first internet wide messenger, bought out several years ago. Pidgin, the open source instant messenger which is multi-protocol.

About Instant Messaging Security

Controlling IM Security Risks

IM usage in business – whether sanctioned or not - is growing rapidly. IM and other real-time communications are network-enabled applications that often operate outside the control of the corporate IT department. While they offer business value, these not-so-secure channels are increasingly becoming the vectors of propagation for malicious applications and code leaving IT to address how to enable business productivity from IM while also controlling risk.

IM security risk falls into three main categories:

* Inbound threats
IM creates new vectors for the distribution of malware (viruses, worms, spyware, rootkits, and more) and SpIM (Spam over IM) which can cause a major drain on productivity and resources. Read about security incidents involving the use of chat, IM and P2P networks and learn more about malware and spyware prevention.
* Outbound threats
IM opens new 'holes' through which information can leak or be leaked, leading to user privacy concerns and the potential loss of intellectual property
* Non-compliance with corporate and regulatory requirements
IM creates invisible communications channels that operate below the radar of conventional information security measures, exposing the organization to regulatory compliance breaches. Read more about IM compliance and e-Discovery.

Technical Challenges of IM Security

Real-time communication and Web 2.0 applications are largely invisible to existing information security infrastructure such as firewalls, intrusion prevention and detection devices, and proxies because they are specifically designed to evade detection and provide ubiquitous access. Existing security measures do not adequately address the protocols and behaviors used by these applications.
Blocking IM is no longer an option:

* IM clients use port crawling - the ability to exploit any open port on the firewall - so blocking the 'usual' port for the particular application doesn't work.
* Every IM network provider has its own unique set of IP addresses to which clients can connect. These IP addresses change frequently or at random without notice, so firewalls and proxies cannot apply blocking policies using the typical black list of IP addresses.
* IM protocols are proprietary and constantly evolving to deliver new and more advanced features to users; firewalls and proxies do not evolve at this pace, nor do IT organizations want to be constantly updating protocol signatures on the firewall.
* The synchronous nature of real-time connections is much different from the asynchronous web browsing and email traffic; firewalls and proxies were not designed to inspect and analyze real-time communication traffic, so network performance suffers.

Beyond the technical considerations, blocking IM will also result in unhappy employees who will attempt to bypass controls, which may cause more problems than it solves.

Instant Messaging Solutions from NaviSite

In today’s highly competitive companies era, exchanging information in fast and safe manner has been the one of the main keys for every business. Though e-mail communication is the general source of communication but messaging and collaboration tools (Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Notes, Lotus Domino etc.) are also growing very fast. Enterprises’ dependence has increased by leaps and bound on instant messaging communication tools. Gradually, they are realizing the real potential of messaging solutions and how they can be used in innovative ways to save time and money in routine tasks.

Many organizations operate with enterprise messaging applications internally and administer themselves. This puts lots of burden on their IT resources and creates collaboration problems. So, it is always advantageous to choose Managed Messaging service. Delivering managed messaging solution with hosted messaging provider offers more control and better scalability. Here go the top 5 reasons to choose Hosted Messaging service over internally managed messaging service:

1. Featured-packed Solution: Managed Messaging allows SMBs to access a featured-packed enterprise-level messaging with calendaring, scheduling, contact management, mobile device synchronization, and basic e-mail hosting services. They can also get the latest collaboration technologies. You can add or upgrade your messaging solutions as and when you desire

2. Free Resources: Many organizations operate with enterprise messaging applications internally and administer themselves. This puts lots of burden on their IT resources and creates collaboration problems. So, it is always advantageous to choose Managed Messaging service as it will free your internal resources and let you do what you do best.

3. Improve business alignment: With managed messaging, you can pick the solutions which align with your business, and then customize those applications to fit your specific needs. You don’t need the high-tech infrastructure to maintain the messaging solutions and waste time in taking backups. The managed messaging service provider would do all this and much more that includes server maintenance, and the other housekeeping chores. This would save you lots of time, money and energy by choosing exactly what you need.

4. Reduce Total Cost of Ownership: An organization can expand the use of messaging without spending too much on their hardware and skills resources. Most of managed messaging service providers typically charge a monthly fee (often based on the number of mailboxes being provided), making costs predictable and fairly constant. With managed hosting, there are no upfront costs; you just pay a single, fixed rate.

5. Increase visibility and Control: Managed messaging provides you more control and visibility to your messaging applications. Now you can oversee and measure how your messaging applications environment is functioning, and make changes as you need them.

Hosted Messaging continues to be a technology with a high potential for growth and innovation. Messaging applications are used as a marketing vehicle by the companies. Among many messaging service providers, you can trust NaviSite as your partner for reliable e-mail hosting with expertise in two key industry-leading messaging platforms – Microsoft and IBM.

Start leveraging the Managed Messaging and Collaboration service and give an upstart to your business communication strategy.

IMiN Lite and IMiN Communicator: New Secure IM Tools.



Safety and IM Software.

Both IMiN Lite and IMiN Communicator are secure IM systems developed to get communication faster, while reducing your company's exposure to outside vulnerabilities. Unlike public messengers and chat applications (like Skype, Yahoo, ICQ, AOL IM), IMiN software is planned to operate behind your company's firewall which keeps public unknown guests out, and spam and IM based threats off of your computers.

IM security danger falls into 3 main themes:
• Inbound instant messaging vulnerabilities - web-based Instant Messaging programs create new opportunities for the distribution of malware (viruses, worms, spyware, rootkits, and more) and Spam which can cause a major drain on productivity and resources.
• Outbound instant messaging attacks - IM opens new 'holes' through which information can leak or be leaked, leading to user privacy concerns and the potential loss of intellectual property.
• Non-compliance with corporate and regulatory requirements - Most IM programs create invisible communications channels that operate below the radar of conventional information security measures, exposing the organization to regulatory compliance breaches and non-SOX compliant behavior.

Centralized and Searchable Secure Instant Messaging History
Accurate history, equals accountability. Need to access that conversation from 3 weeks ago? No problem. How about 3 years ago? No problem still. Every instant message conversation on IMiN is recorded on the server, and is accessible to any user from any location. We even made IMiN SOX compliant in case of internal audits. Don't want everyone to have search capabilities? No problem, lock this feature down to only the chosen few.

How to Make Instant Messaging Secure?

Do you often talk a lot of time with IM friends, family and colleagues ? Did you know that your chat sessions can be hacked easily or seen by someone other than the person you are chatting with? A lot of people assume that their chat session is secure and encrypted, but this is not true.

It’s even easier for someone to see what you’re chatting about if you are using IM at cyber café, work area or on an open network. Tools like MSN-sniffer can easily display MSN chat text for other users connected to the same network, and there are many others for different chat programs. Even if you are chatting from home, there is a chance that someone could be snooping on your chat sessions. Thankfully, it is pretty easy to protect your chats from prying eyes, keep reading to learn how.

If you want to make sure the only person who sees your chat text is the person you are chatting with you should look for an option in your chat program to turn on encryption. Most often, this will be in the settings menu labeled, ‘Encrypt chat session’. This may sound very technical but believe me, it’s not. Nowadays most IM programs include some form of chat session encryption that can be turned on with a few mouse clicks.

But what if your favorite IM client still doesn’t support encryption? Don’t worry! There are plenty of free programs to encrypt your instant messaging sessions.

Examples of free chat encryption software include:

BitDefender chat encryption: BitDefender chat encryption software keeps your instant messages safe from hacking through a simple and automatic encryption process. In order to use BitDefender you’ll need to make sure that the person you are chatting with has also installed BitDefender. BitDefender chat encryption works on Yahoo messenger and MSN messenger.

Features:

* When conversation is initiated, BitDefender starts the encryption process automatically.
* Top level encryption: BitDefender makes sure that your contact is the only one who can read the messages.
* BitDefender is free to download.

Visit BitDefender site for more information and to download the tool.

Simp Lite: Simp Lite is another free alternative to encrypt your chat session. Simp Lite is free version of the Simp product line. Simp Lite supports to 4 different messenger protocols including; Yahoo messenger, MSN, ICQ/AOL messenger (AIM) and Jabber/Google talk.

The limitation of Simp Lite is that you have to use separate software with each IM client. So if you want to use Simp lite with Yahoo Messenger you have to use Simp Lite for Yahoo Messenger. Likewise you would need the correct version for each of the other supported chat programs. Additionally, only one of these versions may be running at a time so if you chat on multiple networks you may want to look at a paid version of Simp.

Features:

* Can handle encrypted and unencrypted chat
* Available for 4 different Instant Messaging protocols.
* Encrypt conversation using state-of-the-art technology.

Please visit Simp Lite site for more information or download Simp Lite software for your chat program from the following links:

* Simp Lite for Yahoo messenger
* Simp lite for MSN messenger
* Simp lite for ICQ/AIM messenger
* Simp lite for Jabber/Google talk

IMCrypto: IMCrypto is a free application which encrypts your chat session and lets you establish secure instant messenger connections by using a private and public key. In order to use IMCrypto, the person you are chatting with will also need to install it.

How it works:

1. Launch IMCrypto.
2. Launch your instant messenger.
3. Choose the person in your contact list that you want to communicate securely with and double-click to start conversation. Note: IMCrypto must be installed on both sides to provide secure conversation.
4. On the left side of the chat window you will see the IMCrypto Toolbar.
5. Click on “Quick Start” button.
6. The person you want to chat with will receive a message with the following prompt: “This contact wants to establish IMCrypto secure conversation with you. Accept?” He should click “Yes”.
7. Automatic public key exchange occurs and the contact is stored into IMCrypto contacts database which can be accessed from the IMCrypto Control Center.
8. Now your messages are encrypted and the conversation is secure.

Danger of Instant Messengers. Can They Bring Viruses?

Even if you have never used IM, you are probably known with the new fast form of instant communication known as instant messaging, abbreviated as IM. Much resembling the email success, the difference in instant messaging is that the two or more parties exchange messages can do it almost instantly without any time period in-between messages. But, as all other computer generated communication systems have been affected by the computer viruses out there, so do now instant messenger users have to protect themselves against malicious code that can be easily transferred and downloading directly to their computer.

Various popular programs, like ICQ, AOL Instant Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger, Windows Messenger, among many others, allow people to communicate in real time by exchanging written messages, sound or images. Unfortunately, neither this type of communication can be considered anymore sd virus-free. Hackers, virus writers and spyware coders are today able to develop their malicious content and release it with greater speed through the use of such instant messaging online boards. When unaware people open the files supposedly send by the other party, their computers become infected with a possibly highly dangerous virus. Victims of such an unfortunate event reported their computers slowing down or that they even completely stopped responding. Others did not detect that something went wrong, as nothing appeared to change, but later found dangerous spyware installed in their computer, which was tracking down the information they entered and was transmitting it to unknown receivers.

Since this is one more Internet threat, people can take basic precautions to avoid having to face the stressful fact of having one day to format their computer system and loosing all their valuable information. First, one should be extremely careful before deciding to download a file through IM; particularly when the file is send by an unknown counter-party. In the cases when the sender is known, computer savvies advise people to use another medium, like email, phone or some other method, in order to contact directly the sender and secure that the file transmitted is not a virus. Second, it is extremely important for all computer users to frequently update their software operating system. By keeping it up-to-date, they can reduce the chances of having to battle a new threat that their older version was not developed to detect. Third, IM users should use the most updated version of their choice of instant messaging service. Visiting the IM webpage and downloading the most recently published version secures that their computers stay protected against malicious codes using IM software programs to be transferred from one computer to another. Forth, downloading the newest antivirus and antispyware versions is of critical importance. As these programs can detect and remove malicious codes, it is only logical to have them frequently updated so as to increase the security measures taken against possible harmers.

How to Use Secure Instant Messaging Software as a Sales Tool

Secure IM software is about to be concerned with since
instant messaging software has become a popular communication tool for
service support between customers and their suppliers as well as for
chatting with colleagues.

If you’re an usual PC user, you are already know an
instant messaging like Skype, MSN, Yahoo! Messenger, and
AOL Instant Messenger, and ICQ. All of these public instant
messaging tools that enable internet users worldwide to
communicate back and forth online in real time using text
messages.

Some of the public instant messaging programs also have video and
voice capabilities. Through instant messaging, multiple people
can be invited to join in on a conversation and users can even
transfer files to one another instantly.

You can imagine how convenient this technology is for business
communications, but as business use increases, so does the need
for secure instant messaging.

Because of the confidential nature of most business transactions
businesses generally are not too crazy about the idea of
transmitting sensitive data and communications over the internet
without proper security, authenticity and encryption.

There is definite concern about data being intercepted or viruses
being exchanged when using public instant messenger programs.

Industries with highly sensitive data have moved toward the use
of private, closed instant messenger programs that encrypt data
and record communications as a solution for secure instant
messaging.

While this is a good option for businesses to handle internal
communications, it isn’t necessarily a solution that will enable
businesses to use instant messaging securely as a sales, customer
service or technical support tool because in order to communicate
through a private, closed instant messenger program, all users
that are collaborating must have the specific program.

Undoubtedly, the communication, collaboration and file sharing
capabilities that instant messaging presents is highly desirable
for businesses. As a sales tool, instant messaging enables
potential customers to ask questions and to have them answered in
real time.

A sales presentation can be made via instant messaging and more
than one person at a time can even be invited to join the online
sales presentation. Customer service and technical support can
also be provided via instant messaging and if support from a
colleague or supervisor is needed in the midst of a conversation,
they can be invited to join the conversation online.

Another advantage of using instant messaging technology as a
sales and service tool is that the text conversations can be
easily saved and referred back to as needed or archived as a
permanent record of communications.

The main disadvantages of using public instant messenger programs
are vulnerability due to the possibility of malware distribution
through messenger programs and the potential for data leakage.
Instant messaging can also be a hindrance to productivity because
it is so quick, convenient and easy to contact a user of instant
messaging.

This ease of instant communication can interrupt a person’s work
causing them to waste time online. These disadvantages lead to
the concerns regarding the use of public instant messenger
programs as a sales or service tool.

For an intranet or for businesses that have the same private
instant messenger programs secure instant messaging is possible;
but in communicating with the standard consumer through public
instant messaging, that is not the case.

If you use instant messaging as a sales or service tool, be aware
that you may be open to vulnerabilities and data leakage if the
communications are not accomplished via secure instant messaging
technology.

Because of the potential for data leakage, credit card
information, proprietary data and so forth should not be
exchanged via public instant messenger programs or services. If
you and your customers can accept the risks of using a public
instant messenger program, it really can be an incredible tool
for sales and service.

Why IT managers choose Skype IM?

It's interesting that some of the most modern instant messaging systems are first brought into businesses by usual PC users, rather than staff of IT departments. Then, when others see the advantages those pioneering users are getting, the technology is quickly adopted in company IT environment. It happened this way with PC-based fax, then email, and with instant messaging. And it's happening with Skype IM.

And that's really no amaze. Home PC users first use Skype because it offered free voice and video calls over the Internet. The adoption rate skyrocketed due to Skype's ease of use and superior voice quality over the public Internet. But now that it operates the world's largest and most reliable Internet communications community, with over 405M registered users, it's also a very attractive infrastructure for business telephony applications. According to Skype, 30% of its users are using Skype for business.

What's more, it complements the communications infrastructure that you already have in place, enabling you to do more with the resources you already have, which is particularly compelling in the current business climate.

So here are five key reasons why corporate IT managers have embraced Skype in their organizations—and how they can deploy and centrally manage it effectively.

It saves—and keeps on saving
Skype isn't just about cost savings—but it's a great benefit nonetheless. It saves your business money on all call costs: national, international, mobile, inter-office, to any user, and it keeps on delivering savings.

With Skype centrally managed in your organisation via PBX-to-Skype gateways you can create global numbering plans, enabling employees to use extension dialling between offices. Site-to-site calls are free, and long-distance calls are handled using SkypeOut to reduce costs. The gateways also centralise Skype provisioning and management, giving IT managers full control and eliminating the need to install Skype on each PC. All Skype voice functions are delivered to users' handsets.

The benefits can also extend to mobile users. With Skype installed on any smart mobile phone that can run the lite version of Skype, the user's call preferences can be set up centrally by the IT team, via the PBX gateway, for alternate routing to the mobile user's Skype account. This is done via mobile broadband under the user's mobile data plan, giving huge savings compared with even the cheapest international mobile tariffs.

It leverages your existing technology
These PBX-to-Skype application gateways can link any office phone system (whether traditional digital switch, or IP / SIP PBX) to Skype, for a low one-time upgrade cost without having to swap out or replace existing equipment. The gateways add anything from 4 to 30 Skype lines to the company PBX, so that Skype calls can be made and transferred between extensions as normal. Employees simply dial 8 for Skype, or 9 for an ordinary line.

None of your investments are made obsolete. You just make your existing assets work harder for your business—and start saving money.

It's easy to manage
The gateways can be installed, and Skype provisioned, in less than half a day, with zero changes to existing PBX equipment, phones, or PCs. The gateway ties the Skype Online number to the business to enable Skype DID. It also simplifies configuration, management and support, putting Skype under the IT manager's full control.

There's no need to install Skype on each PC—Skype usage can be monitored by the business just like ordinary calls, and number schemes easily managed. You set it up and it's under centralised control right away.

Skype is completely free of malware, adware and spyware
So it does not add another potential security threat, or attack vector to your network. How many other corporate networks can say the same?

Skype is encrypted
When Skype users connect, it's over an AES-encrypted session, whether it's via instant message, voice, video, or the sending of files. So Skype communications are secure—giving an advantage over conventional VoIP or voice VPNs.

And of course, with a gateway at each office, you get secure voice VPN working over Skype without paying for expensive leased lines, or having to deploy IP PBXs from the same vendor at every office. That's in addition to the benefits outlined earlier.

So with the cost savings and functionality benefits available to you through Skype usage, what's not to love about it?

Windows Live Messenger Covered 98.82% of Instant Messaging Market in Brazil

ComScore Inc, a global marketing research company unfurled a new report relating email and instant messaging market in Brazil. Data in the report shows that Microsoft is the ace in email as well as instant messenger IM, followed by Google. The report also included other IT companies with substantial growth. According comScore managing director of Latin America, Alex Banks, Microsoft exercises a strong foothold on many consumer applications in the Latin American marketplace. He also added that there were other software giants such as Google and Yahoo! flexing their muscles. Bank anticipates that the competitive landscape would changes over the next few years with so many consumer-focused Internet brands taking part in this digital gold rush.

ComScore's survey in December revealed 24 million Brazilians aged 15 and older visited web-based email sites from home and work locations. A majority of them nearly 20 million can access Windows Live Hotmail. Next in the ranks was Google's Gmail with 8.4 million visitors (up 51 percent from last year), Yahoo! Mail followed with 7.1 million visitors (up by 20 percent) and UOL Mail having nearly 4 million visitors (up by 14 percent). What's most interesting, 34 percent of Hotmail users swayed to Gmail, where as 81 percent of Gmail users visited Hotmail.

Coming down to the Instant Messenger Application, again Microsoft's Windows Live messenger rules the roost dominating 98.82% of the market in Brazil. However, this category on a whole is growing at a sluggish pace only up by 5% as compared to the total Brazilian Internet audience (up 20 percent). Further there are several smaller players such as EBuddy and Meebo in the IM market that are growing at substantial rate. Microsoft's IM application is under threat with the raging competition in IM market. It's high-time for the tech-giant to workout strategies ways to outplay the competitors to survive its dominance in the IM market, in Brazil.

Instant messaging (IM) is a set of technologies that create the possibility of real-time text-based communication between two or more participants over the internet or some form of internal network/intranet. It is important to understand that what separates chat and instant messaging from technologies such as e-mail is the perceived synchronicity of the communication by the user – Chat happens in real-time. Some systems allow the sending of messages to people not currently logged on, thus removing some of the differences between Instant Messaging and e-mail.

IM falls under the umbrella of chat, chatab.com as it is a real-time text-based networked communication system, but is distinct in that it is based on clients that facilitate connections between specified known users (often using “Buddy List”, “Friend List” or “Contact List”), whereas Chat includes web-based applications that allow communication between (often anonymous) users in a multi-user environment.
