In the past week, we have seen increased occurrences of elaborated scam emails with attempts to collect Office 365 credentials, so we find important to share tips on how to spot these threats.
Always verify the sender is valid. Specially the domain suffix. If its not a .com or .us there is your red flag.
DO NOT click on attachments or links. If you are in doubt, forward the email to your IT department or MSP provider. On the above sample, links were pointing to a site that looked identical to the Office 365 login page, it did have a valid SSL Certificate so it was deemed as secure but it was designed to steal office 365 logons. As of 10-27-2017 the set had been taken down already.
Why would someone want to gain access to random email addresses you may ask. A few examples:
A few steps that help protecting your systems against this threats are:

Naperville, IL - September 2016 - "IEple.com | Embrace Technology" is proud to offer "BioGreenPC – A Green Approach to High Performance Computers" project on Kickstarter.
Boost your productivity with environmentally friendly BioGreenPCs. Perform 6 times faster, and save up to 80% on electricity!
BioGreenPC was designed by Network and System Administrators who have supported thousands of corporate computers and came up with the perfect combination of Processor, Hard drive capacity, data transfer rate and RAM requirements to meet every business and home user needs.
Aside from performance benefits it also features a power supply that saves 80% on electricity, making it the only true Sustainable choice for high performance computing.
Due to the success of our first generation BioGreenPC, we are moving towards the next generation with double memory and double storage, but we need your help to put it on the market at unbeatable prices.
"We have implemented these devices in our warehouse as terminals for our RDS environment as well as machine replacement solutions for some of our end users. We tested every product under the sun from CLI thin clients to the infinitely versatile Dell Wyse clients. The iEple BioGreen PC's hands down out perform anything similar on the market that we tested..." (click to see full review) Shindawa, IL
System administrators enjoy the ability to store hundreds of BioGreenPC’s in very small spaces which save storage and time for large deployments.
Our convenient packaging also allow technicians to deploy dozens of units form a single box without the need of carts or hurt backs.
Our boxes are not only eco-friendly but also reusable, they usually end up as
office supplies storage rather than in the trash.
Deploy in less than 2 minutes per unit (3 easy steps)
BioGreenPC boots in 10 seconds or less (boot time starting after POST and may vary depending on the environment) and will continue to perform the same for the years to come. Solid State Drive technology is our signature for all our computing products; electrical signals to write and read data will beat by 10 times the speed of regular spinning plate drives. Less boot time means less employee frustration, less cigarette and coffee breaks per shift.
The pace of technology accelerates exponentially as more products become available, with better prices and better features as well as shorter release cycles. It seems like a win win situation for both producers and consumers, but what about the environment toll?
Yes, technology is a necessity and the only choice to stay in business is to stay updated and replace all equipment whenever is possible. But there is always a choice to make this practice sustainable:
As a Business Technology Services company, we wanted to join the new green movements that are spreading around the globe and be able to educate and help business and consumers about sustainable choices for high performance computers.
We’ve been selling our first generation BioGreenPC units to manufacturing companies and business offices, where benefits became visible from day one:
Evolution of the Product
We started designing low power regular towers but were not satisfied with only a few savings; after testing aside from the amount of waste generated and high costs of packaging and shipping big volumes. We tried and built many prototypes, shrinking size and power consumption until we were satisfied with the most cost effective Super Computer: BioGreenPC.
It’s been almost two years since our first generation BioGeenPC is been in production for a few companies, so it’s time to scale it and make them available for all other responsible and successful Businesses and consumers.
With your help, we will be able to acquire components in large quantities to keep pricing competitive.
Whereas in today’s world every computer part comes from overseas, we are choosing to assemble in the US, employing local professionals to help our economy and guarantee good quality in the final build.
Our Kickstarter campaign is necessary to launch our Next Generation BioGreenPC, which will feature energy efficient 6th Generation Intel Processors, 16GB of Ram and240GB of Solid State Drive. A perfect combination of high performance specifications at prices that beat competitors with Green focus savings:

It's been a few months since we started formal sales of our BioGreenPC brand. An Environmentally Friendly High performance computer. We would like to pass along the posting after an interview we had from BizFi.com which we are pasting below:
"...Bizfi Gives Green Tech Entrepreneurs A Boost
In just two years, suburban Chicago entrepreneurs Miguel and Clementina Jimenez have built a strong roster of corporate, medical, manufacturing and academic clients for their technology services company, iEple.com. They’ve also developed a strong sense of how businesses are losing time, money and productivity because of their computer setups, and they’re out to change that.
Based in Naperville, Ill. just west of Chicago, iEple (“eeple) has developed what it calls the BioGreenPC, a fist-sized device that can replace the bulky tower of a desktop computer. It boots up faster than conventional PCs and, perhaps better still, uses 80 percent less electricity. “In the three to five years that companies keep computers, 50 percent of BioGreen‘s price is paid for in the energy savings,” says Miguel Jimenez.
Miguel, now 35, developed his passion for computers as a child. “I wanted a Nintendo for my sixth birthday but my dad said you have to learn to use a computer before I will get it for you,” he recalls. “He had one of the early Apples; you had to boot it with a floppy drive. I would go to his office on the weekend to learn all the ins and outs. I ended up liking it, and by the time I learned how to use it I didn’t want a Nintendo anymore.” Later when he was in high school, he was fixing computers as well as building office networks.
Miguel, who was born in America and raised in Mexico, eventually got a law degree and practiced in Mexico. But he found himself called back to the world of computers in 2010 after he got a computer science degree from the College of DuPage in the Chicago suburbs. Clementina Jimenez, also America-born and Mexico-raised, has a bachelors in management from Purdue and 10 years of experience in corporate and hospitality management. Together, they created a company to provide tech services to small- and medium-sized companies with strong proactive approach.
When some of our clients wanted to upgrade their computers, we discovered that no major brand satisfied all of their needs in terms of budget and performance,” Miguel says. So iEple built a machine that could. Instead of the 4 gigs of RAM memory on standard computers, iEple’s first generation BioGreenPC shipped with 8 and used solid-state drives so that its patent-pending computers boot in 10 seconds, instead of 10 minutes, every time.
The BioGreenPC’s biggest plus may be its energy profile. The average PC uses 80 to 100 watts of electricity per hour, which means that it takes about 1,100 tons of coal every day to power Chicago’s 1 million business computers. BioGreenPCs use only 10 to 30 watts of electricity per hour. The Jimenez’ expect to have their next generation of BioGreenPC computers certified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Energy Star program, which would enable buyers to get a tax break for purchasing the machines.
The Jimenez’ came to Bizfi this year for funding to produce demonstration models of their next generation BioGreenPC, which will ship with 16GB of RAM and 240GB solid state drive “It is hard for people to believe that this little box can replace their whole computer so we know they need to try the real thing to spark interest. That requires a heavy investment but it’s an effective sales method” Miguel says. They shipped BioGreenPC samples to local universities and manufacturing companies, and one of their test sites has already committed an initial order for 70 of them. There will be a Kickstarter campaign in early fall aimed at eco-conscious businesses and consumers to help the company reach its next milestone: 500 units a month.
The Jimenez’ are thankful for Bizfi’s help towards that goal. “Bizfi’s representatives were very persistent and very helpful,” Clementina says. “The whole funding process only took about three days.”
“Bizfi was a really good experience,” Miguel adds. “For a fairly new company like iEple it was important to have a big company believe in us.”
iEple has launched a Kickstarter for the second-generation model of its BioGreenPC...."
