I'm always on the lookout for apps that can ease my workload or free up some room in my budget, and open source applications are an excellent way for me to accomplish both.

If you're in the same boat as me, hopefully you're already utilizing some open source options. If not, I've put together this list of two dozen great applications that I can depend on to keep things running smoothly on my office LAN and customer systems as well.

Some of these you'll recognize, but I hope that there are some that are new to you as well.
  1. PING - I may be beating a dead horse here with my love of PING, but it's just a great piece of open source. Drive imaging with network and spanning support, password blanking, it's just an excellent app.

  2. NTRegEdit - The Windows Registry editor hasn't seen many changes over the years. NTRegEdit offers some great additional features like recursive export, color coding, improved searching, and quick edit window below the values list.

  3. Safarp - A portable alternative to appwiz.cpl (add/remove programs), it provides a few extra useful features - like silent uninstalls and repairs of Windows Installer-based apps. It also opens in a flash, unlike the clunky appwiz.
  4. WPKG - Maintaining software installs on computers in a small business environment can be a little frustrating sometimes. WPKG gives you push/pull installs and it can run as a service, so silent installs run transparently with no user ineteraction.

Thieves gain access to personal information in many ways, but the most common method is to take it from the victim themselves. They steal mail such as account statements, new checks and offers of credit left in a mailbox, discarded in the trash or stored in an easy to access location in your home or office. They access credit card and personal identification from your purse or wallet. Without realizing, you may give the information directly to the criminal when you enter data at an unsecured or unknown website, or in response to a fraudulent request for account information through an unverified e-mail; this is known as "phishing". Thieves also ask for information from you through unsolicited phone calls, tricking you into thinking it is someone you know, such as your bank; this is known as "pretexting".

How can Identity theft be investigated and prosecuted:
The investigation of identity theft is labor intensive and individual cases are usually considered to be too small because perpetrators usually victimize multiple victims in multiple jurisdictions. Victims do not even realize that they have been victimized until weeks or months after the crime has been committed, and can provide little assistance to law enforcement. Therefore, it has become a priority for the Departments of Justice and Treasury and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to pursue effective means of prevention, investigation, and prosecution of identity theft offenses.

Identity theft occurs when somebody steals a person’s name and other personal information for fraudulent purposes. Identity theft is a form of identity crime where somebody uses a false identity to commit a crime. It involves stealing victims' personal information and credentials, often to make purchases. It is an act of impersonating another by means of using the person's information, such as birth date, Social Security number, address, name, and bank account information. It is an fact the co-option of another person's personal information e.g., name, Social Security number, credit card number or passport without that person's knowledge and the fraudulent use of such knowledge. Identity theft is deliberately assuming another person's identity, usually to gain access to their finances or frame them for a crime. It can also be used to enable illegal immigration, terrorism, espionage, or changing identity permanently.
