How to improve your password strength  13 September 2011 
Source: CNET - Posted by Alex   
For too many of us, passwords are annoying obstacles rather than valuable tools meant to keep our business (and back accounts) private. You may find yourself sticking with the same small number of passwords for every site, which means that you're only as secure as the least secure site you visit. Here are some tips to boost your online security:
 
Why Your Linux Desktop is Insecure  25 April 2011 
Source: PC Magazine - Posted by Dave Wreski   
Of the many reasons why Linux on the desktop never happened, security was not one. After all, security was a strength of Linux on the desktop, was it not? Maybe, relatively, back in the day, but today Linux actually looks a bit archaic from a security standpoint.

Source: Information Week - Posted by Alex   
Android devices may be viewed with more suspicion than rival smartphones because the more relaxed policing of Android Market apps suggests greater potential risk. But the openness of Android code turns out to be a benefit rather than a liability, at least from a security standpoint.
