The Cougar 700M Gaming Mouse is a right handed gaming mouse offers a serious amount of adjustments and options as well as a design which certainly stands out.  The DPI is programmable from 50 to 8200 and with the software it seems you can actually specify different levels to your X and Y axis if you so desire.  It comes with weights and the height of the pad on the rear of the mouse can be adjusted to ensure it fits your hand comfortably as well as a headlight of varying colours.  Techgage gave the mouse and software a try in their latest review, check out what they thought of it here.


"Mice – there is never a shortage of options in the gaming market. They range from $10, to well over $100 – some are a tremendous value, some are not. COUGAR is no stranger to this market and have put its best foot forward with the 700M Gaming Mouse. How did it fare? Follow me, I’ll show you!"

You can't protect your PIN from a hacked POS machine

Just in time for last minute Christmas shopping comes malware designed to infect POS machines and record any PIN and credit card information stored on the machine.  The US, the UK, and Canada are all affected with the US accounting for almost a third of the current infections.  Instead of using RDP vulnerabilities this particular piece of malware will install its self on any networked machine that is running POS software and it copies the memory of that machine to a server which then parses the information and gives the crooks the ability to clone any credit cards that were used on that machine recently.  Scare yourself by reading more about Dexter at The Register.


"You could be getting more than you bargained for when you swipe your credit card this holiday shopping season, thanks to new malware that can skim credit card info from compromised point-of-sale (POS) systems.

First spotted by security firm Seculert, the malware dubbed "Dexter" is believed to have infected hundreds of POS systems in 40 countries worldwide in recent months. Companies targeted include retailers, hotel chains, restaurants, and private parking provider"
