Hackers in Messenger

Posted by shane on July 16, 2018 in Guides |
Messenger Icon


I reviewed the following message in Facebook messenger from multiple people recently.

Please tell all the contacts in your messenger list not to accept anything from Fabrizio Brambilla. He has a photo with a dog. He is a hacker and has the system connected to your messanger account. If one of your contacts accepts it, you will also be hacked, so make sure that all your friends know it. Thanks. Forwarded as received.

Hold your finger down on the message. At the bottom in the middle it will say forward. Hit that then click on the names of those in your list and it will send to them

I decided since I am bringing my blog back mostly for guidance on things like these, this would be a perfect subject to start with. I want to be sure I am clear on this next statement.

Your account cannot be compromised by a friend accepting a friend request.

Now that I have made that clear, I want to make another statement that I hope I’m very clear on.

Your account cannot be compromised by accepting a friend request.

With those being said, I want to say thank you to those who did send this warning to me. I appreciate your better safe than sorry mentality.

Posted by shane on June 4, 2017 in Local |

Recently I held a poll asking bout running a Fireside Gathering in Huntsville. The overwhelming response I received from this poll is that more information was needed rather than just one some Saturday. I figured I would take the time to write out a post of what I was thinking to go along with the […]

I lost my wallet

Posted by shane on May 8, 2017 in Tech |

Sometime Friday I lost my wallet. Most people would be in a fit over this, but because I have consistently lost my wallet since I changed to this new form factor, It didn’t really bother me. I figured it had just fallen out of my pants and got kicked under the bed or something. I […]


Facebook Friends

Posted by shane on May 8, 2017 in Guides |

  Trust. Its a very important thing between friends. It’s the glue that holds these things together. This hasn’t changed in hundreds, even thousands of years. What has changed over the same amount of time is how we communicate. For the longest of this, we have communicated through ink and parchment. Since that we have […]


Windows 10 S and the Surface Laptop

Posted by shane on May 6, 2017 in Tech |

Recently, Microsoft announced a new addition to its line up of Surface devices. This device  is a little bit different from what Microsoft has been placing its Surface name on. Aside from the 3:2 display that supports the Surface Pen, there’s nothing special about this device. It is built like your typical laptop, USB A […]
