If You’re a Victim of Data Hacking, Here’s What You Should Do

It’s only the first months of the year 2020, but the number of cybercrimes that has happened this year is already alarming. In the third week of February, MGM Resorts declared that personal information of its close to 11 million guests who have been into one of their hotels and resorts was dumped and released on a hacking forum. Published in the hacking site were millions of complete names, addresses, contact numbers, and birthdates. Members of the tech press were quick to confirm the accuracy of the released information by getting in touch with the published names in the forum and true enough, the information is accurate.

A security incident occurred in summer 2019, as a cloud server containing information of previous guests was accessed without proper authorization. If it’s any consolation, no credit card or financial information was published. So far, the resort giant has only released a statement saying that they have taken steps to improve their network security. For everyone’s reference, MGM’s facilities include the Mirage, Excalibur, Bellagio, Luxor, and the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, as well as the Borgata in Atlantic City, golf courses in Las Vegas, Mississippi, and California, and other properties in New England and China.

With this massive data breach occurring months ago and only made known now, it seems that everyone involved in the digital, online times (that’s almost all of us unless you’re living out of the grid) are at great risk. Are we helpless about this situation? What can we possibly do if we have fallen victim to a data breach? We investigate ways on how to cope with data breaches.

Has your data been leaked?

You need to know whether you have been victimized first. Just because you have transacted with a website that has been hacked isn’t a 100% guaranteed that your information has been compromised.

The first step is to find out if your information was a part of the latest data hack. One of the most efficient and fastest ways to check is to use the site haveibeenpwned. The site works by using your email address to see which data breaches your information was a part of and if you were affected.

What has been stolen from you?  

If you are now 100% certain that your data has been leaked, it is time to determine what information about you has been leaked. Leaked information can be classified as least sensitive (your full name, street address), more sensitive (payment methods, email addresses), and most sensitive (security codes of your payment options, social security numbers).

An online-account password, combined with an email address, can be used to hijack online accounts. A card security code lets a thief use a stolen card number for online and telephone shopping. A bank account number lets snoops track your financial history and even move money into (but probably not out of) an account.

See if you can get help

A lot of companies whose data was breach extend assistance to the people whose information was compromised because of them. If they aid you, try to see if the help they are willing to give can indeed benefit you.

skidlocked Review

A timeless staple of any hipster’s repertoire, fixed gear bikes meet the world of video games with the release of Sokpop Collective’s street racer skidlocked. These bikes might lack gears, but do they manage to make city riding fun?

skidlocked Review

In a city filled with traffic, sidewalk clutter, and drab skyscrapers, your fixed gear bike is your one true friend. This two wheeled wonder’s got some power to it – simply holding down the left mouse button whisks players along, and taking to the streets gives players an added boost of speed. The right button serves as the brakes, while hitting both at the same time lets players skid along.

This control scheme is simple at its core, almost to a fault. There is not much finesse that goes into its dealings – players will have to rely on reflexes rather than memorization or intricate mechanics to get ahead. Nevertheless, the one-handed control scheme is simple yet effective.

It’s just a shame that its environment is rage-inducing in its design. Multi-lane roads are packed with cars, and the only way to get through is oftentimes to lane split. This isn’t a problem in and of itself, but when there are cars that are turning in traffic, the act of traveling a few city blocks quickly becomes an impossible endeavor. Those who wish to take the sidewalk will not fare much better, as barriers, cones, fire hydrants, and other hazards will cause players to wipe out. As a result, it can often feel like there is no way to get ahead with the hand skidlocked provides.

Unfortunately, these threats are exacerbated when taking on one of its six different races. Much like SEGA’s Crazy Taxi, players will have to ride to select spots on the map in a set period of time. However, unlike that arcade classic, there are no arrows to help you along the way. Rather, your minimap is your greatest ally, with players relying on that more than the action itself to get ahead. It feels kind of backwards, and some additional features could have made this a far smoother process.

It’s just unfortunate that these races tend to drag on a bit. When the city uses a rigid structure with no landmarks or even curves, it can be easy to get lost in its surroundings. Going to each point on the map feels like busywork, and the amount of time provided is just barely enough to accomplish each one. A quick press of the “R” key will allow players to restart the race at any given time, but more time would have been greatly appreciated.

Those that complete the initial six races will be able to unlock a gold bike and randomized races. There are also a handful of Steam achievements, but we were able to finish the initial round of races in around an hour.

The fixie action of skidlocked seems solid on paper, but the drab city, relentless traffic, and lack of polish hurt it in the long run.

This review of skidlocked was done on the PC. The game was purchased digitally.

Resident Evil 3 Vaccine Puzzle Guide


It isn’t a Resident Evil game without some sort of vaccine puzzle. Check out this Resident Evil 3 Vaccine Puzzle guide to clear the puzzle and move on with the game. The game doesn’t have many puzzles, but this one can be frustrating if you don’t know what to do.

Resident Evil 3 Vaccine Puzzle Guide

When you get to the vaccine puzzle area, you first need to combine the Vaccine Base and the Culture Sample in order to put it into the machine. When you put it into the machine, the puzzle starts and you are probably immediately confused. Don’t worry, we’ll get through this. First hit the middle button, second the right button, third the left button, fourth the middle button again, and finally hit the right button twice in a row to even out the sample. It’ll end on left button mid, middle button high, and right button low. This will get you the vaccine that you’ve been going after for pretty much the whole game. You still have a few things to do before beating the game though, just keep it in your inventory for now.

After this part you are getting towards the end of the game, so don’t worry about saving up ammo as often. Still save the magnum ammo, but shotgun shells and grenade rounds can be used more freely without having to worry about running out. The game is super generous when it comes to extra ammo in this section of the game, and those pale head zombies are stupidly strong. I personally like to group them up, put a mine, grenade, or flame round into them and run past when they hit the floor. They just aren’t worth the trouble in my opinion.

Inside the RPG is a locker with a combination lock. This Resident Evil 3 Remake Locker Room Combination will guide you through to find the location of the clue to solve the puzzle, as well as the answer itself so you can unlock the locker and get what’s inside.

After Jill escapes the city on the Subway, your main character switches over to Carlos. At this point, or shortly after, you will be exploring the Raccoon City Police Department searching for a person of interest. It is during this time, when you are exploring the station, that you will come across this locked locker in the Men’s Locker Room on the 2nd Floor, just before you reach the S.T.A.R.S Office.

You may have seen the clue already but were not aware it was a clue, or maybe you missed it entirely. There is a whiteboard just outside the Operations Room, the Southern door, that has some writing sprawled over it. It reads “Locker CAP”. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out what the message is trying to say.

It may be different for each user but if the “CAP” code doesn’t work for you, simply run back downstairs to the door that leads into the Operations Room. There you will be able to see the large whiteboard leaning against the wall. Look at the whiteboard to shine your torch on the letter, making them much easier to see.

Then simply run back upstairs to the Men’s Locker Room on 2F and change the combination to match the letters from the whiteboard.

Early on in RES 3 Remake an alleyway on fire blocks your path. This guide tells you How To Put Out The Fire In The Alley In Resident Evil 3 Remake so you can grab the equipment you need to use the fire hydrant and douse the flames so you can continue to progress.

At the beginning of the game you’re restricted on movement as you flee from Nemesis and meet Carlos, along with a number of survivors. After you’ve met up with Carlos and he takes you to the makeshift base in the subway carts, you’re given a more freeroam approach, allowing you to explore freely in the surrounding area of Raccoon City. At this point, when you are on the way to the Power Station, you will encounter an alley covered in flames.

How To Put Out The Fire In The Alley In Resident Evil 3 Remake
Once you have the ability to run around and explore Downtown, you need to reach the Subway Control Room area. In a hallway, just outside the Subway Control Room, there’s a large fire hose sitting on the floor. It’s difficult to miss. Be careful though as there’s a zombie nearby that will be more than happy to gnaw on your unsuspecting self.

When you have collected the Fire Hose return to the alley that’s on fire. Use your map if you’ve forgotten where to go, the Fire Hydrant is marked by a ! on the map. Highlight the icons to find its location. Then, when you reach the hydrant, interact with it and select the Fire House. Then choose the Use command. This will attach the fire hose to the hydrant so you can use it to put out the fire.

How To Remove The Parasite Condition In Resident Evil 3


One of the new conditions in Resident Evil 3 is the Parasite Condition. Check out this guide to find out how to remove the Parasite Condition in Resident Evil 3. If you don’t cure it, it will kill you slowly and make you move slower.

How To Remove The Parasite Condition In Resident Evil 3

Thankfully the Parasite Condition is not one you should be running into often. The cure for it is simple, a green herb. This can be a single green herb, or a red+green herb, or any combination of herbs that involves the green herb. What do you do if you don’t have a green herb? Die I guess, I never was without one when the condition struck. I don’t know if a first aid spray works or not, leave a comment if you try it and let us know if it works. I do have some tips for getting through that nightmare of a substation though.

First off, don’t bother with the pistol unless you are hitting one of those electrical boxes. Use the lock pick and bolt cutters to stuck up on extra shotgun shells, the bugs die in one shot to a shotgun blast. Don’t forget about your dodge. It is hard to time but it will save you ammo and herbs in here if you can even avoid a couple of attacks. There are a couple of herbs in the sub station, only use them if you are about to die or get the Parasite Condition. Fight if you need to hit a switch and the bugs are nearby, run if not to conserve ammo. It is a relatively short section so try to get in and get out as soon as possible.

Resident Evil 3 Hip Pouch Locations

Hip Pouch 1 Location
The first Hip Pouch is hard to miss. After you put out the flames in the alley, head into the repair shop and grab the bolt cutters. Cut the chain to the red door and follow the path to the Substation. When you get to the Save Room, check on top of the little ladder in the room for the Pouch.

Hip Pouch 3 Location
The third pack is found down in the sewers. After you get the first battery pack, run back towards the ladder in the sewer. Climb up and open the door up top with the battery pack.

Resident Evil 3 Remake Safe Combination Guide
Want to know the location and combination of each safe? This Resident Evil 3 Remake Safe Combination Guide does just that, with details on where you can find each safe scattered throughout Raccoon City and the puzzles associated with the combination for each safe.

Much like previous Resident Evil games, the Resident Evil 3 Remake features locked safe’s scattered throughout the game. There’s not very many, but each comes with some minor puzzle solving and often some worthwhile rewards – such as additional ammo or healing supplies. Both of which are rather tasty considering Nemesis is never too far away.

Important: When you are attempting to open a safe, you do not press on each combination. You don’t go left 9 and then press to open. You simply follow the pattern. Left 9, Right 1, Left 8, then press to open. Just as an example.
