How to protect your computer from hackers.
I am sure many of us have been
scared (or worse) by the threats
of computer viruses. Now comes
another scary thought: Someone
actually breaking into our computers
via the Internet!
What can hackers do? Well , they
* Destroy (erase) all your files and data.
* Change your information (possibly
to steal information).
* Change your information (possibly to steal your money).
Now, many experts will tell you
that the only true way to be 100%
safe is not to be on the Internet
at all, but that may not be the
best solution for everyone. Some
of us have to be on the Internet
to perform our jobs and of course
to do the things that we might
be able to do otherwise, like
paying our bills or doing research
or chatting with our friends.
Others say the best way to stop
an intruder is right at the front
door with hardware device called
a router. This is probably a great
place to end up, but routers can
be expensive and many of us will
opt for less expensive solutions
Here's a great place to start:
Apply comprehensive and customizable
security to your Internet connection,
stopping hackers and malicious
programs cold. Current pricing:
License: Free to try, $50 to buy
If you are a large company you
will probably already have a firewall
and a router protecting you, but
for the rest of us, the home users
and small business, we need to
start somewhere, and here is a
great place to start!
If you'd like to quickly find
out if your computer is secure,
check out this free service. But
be warned, you might come up with
something link this!

Scan Results: WARNING!!
The scan was able to make a connection
with your computer. This means

vulnerable to attack by malicious
people who gain access to your

Install a personal firewall on
your computer. If you have a firewall
installed on your computer it
may not be properly configured

So you can see how scary this
can be. I recommend that you run
