Smart Defrag the easiest way to defrag

Keep your hard drive running at peak performance with this handy piece of must have freeware. Any PC user will tell you, after a while – after installing applications and creating data files – at some point, your PC will need to be defragmented.  PC’s tend to place data anywhere it can see space. This is fine when your drive is relatively empty. Things get complicated as it fills up with data.

If your PC’s performance is bad – if it’s slow – the first thing I always check is the defrag level. If the drive is highly fragmented, the PC’s performance is going to be bad. Smart Defrag helps improve your PC’s performance by efficiently defragmenting and optimizing your hard drive. With its “Install it and forget it” feature, Smart Defrag works quietly in the background, keeping your hard disk running at its best. Performance issues and crashes will become a thing of the past.

This application is one of the very few where no cons could be easily identified. It’s free, small, fast and good at what it does. If you’re a Windows user, and are looking for a tool to defrag your hard drive with, this is a must have. It’s better than the tool that comes with Windows and is easy to use, and above all, it’s free.

Facebook apps accidentally leaking access to third parties – change your Password now!

According to an investigation by Symantec, third parties (advertisers, analytic platforms, and other third parties), have accidentally had access to Facebook users’ accounts (profiles, pictures, chat,etc.) and also had the ability to post messages and mine personal information. However, these third-parties may not have realized their ability to access this information.

Facebook applications are Web applications that are integrated onto the Facebook platform. According to Facebook, 20 million Facebook applications are installed every day.

Symantec has discovered that in certain cases, Facebook IFRAME applications inadvertently leaked access tokens to third parties like advertisers or analytic platforms. We estimate that as of April 2011, close to 100,000 applications were enabling this leakage. We estimate that over the years, hundreds of thousands of applications may have inadvertently leaked millions of access tokens to third parties.

Access tokens are like ‘spare keys’ granted by you to the Facebook application. Applications can use these tokens or keys to perform certain actions on behalf of the user or to access the user’s profile. Each token or ‘spare key’ is associated with a select set of permissions, like reading your wall, accessing your friend’s profile, posting to your wall, etc.

Note: Symantec reported this issue to Facebook, who has taken corrective action to help eliminate this issue, however, Symantec advises Facebook users to change their passwords on Facebook in order protect their accounts from being mined.
