The more experienced among us should make every effort to alert the
new users to some of the potential cyber dangers lying in wait to
ambush them. It's often more difficult for children to grasp
the significance of these risks than it is for adults.

BEST WISHES FOR A
AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR
Would you feel
more comfortable if you could surf the web anonymously?
This is the
time of the year when most of us spend more than the usual amount of
time surfing the Internet.
Shopping, sending greetings to friends and family by email and
online greeting cards, planning vacation and holiday trips, and
possibly a lot more online activities open us up to potential
surveillance by unknown people.
It's possible for people to collect information about
us even when we don't want
to advertise who we are. This is true even if our system contains
no virus or malware software.
Basically, information is intercepted and used by others to

Santa visits EVERY needy child this year! Major William (Bill) J.
Grein, Vice President of Toys for Tots, says this is something their
great program, despite it's popularity, has never been able to do.
The need is simply too great.
Therefore, he is a little more than excited that we aim to change that
this year. Check out his message when you get to our website: http://www.internettoydrive.org
may have read this on Cyber Monday, (Dec 1, 2008) but the alert is
directed toward the whole cyber-month proceeding Christmas,
Hanukkah, or other seasonal holiday.
spite of the economy, there will be millions of dollars spent
online. Some of it mine, and probably some of it yours.
would hope that it ALL goes to legitimate online merchants, but some
of it will land in the pockets of crooks and criminals lying in wait
for us to drop our guards.
because of the economy, we'll all be searching for bargains and good
deals. That's how we can be trapped!
Cyber criminals are quite sophisticated and know how to prey on
our emotions. There will be a lot of bargains and deals that might
look too good to be true. Some could be booby-trapped with malware
that can lead us to divulge personal financial information to the
wrong people. Identity theft, raided bank accounts, stolen credit
card numbers can all lead to personal financial disaster.
all want to enter online transactions with our eyes open. Know
your merchant. Look at their web sites for evidence of secure
transactions. And if anything even looks a little bit suspicious,
think twice about proceeding with a purchase.
click on any links in the questionable sales/offer page. Confirm
with the merchant that the offer is legitimate. Contact them by
telephone or by entering their web address in a different browser
you don't know their true web address, use Google, Yahoo or other
Search Engines to get it.
the offering merchant doesn't provide a telephone number or means to
contact them through their website, beware! Use extra caution before
the Alert and you'll Enjoy your holidays without any extra stress from
unexpected financial loss.

more things for kids - see the October 23

Update your Emergency Virus Protection program
you don't have your Virus Protection program yet, here's an
Emergency Step you should take, Right Now!
McAfee offers a FREE Virus Scanning program named STINGER.
It has grown in size a little over the past few years and no longer fits on a single floppy Disk.
But so many of the newer PCs, including lap tops don't have a "A" floppy
drive anyway, you should burn it to a CD or memory stick for an offline back up tool.
You can use it as we do, to check
any of your PC computers for viruses, without being on line.
It is an 'After the Fact' application, which means that it does not scan
incoming email files, attachments or downloads, but it does scan whatever
you have already received online.
It currently checks, and repairs nearly 200 recent viruses. It's FREE
to download fromMcAfee

As parents, grandparents and guardians, we
are reminded constantly to help our children enjoy the pleasures and
excitement of the Internet in safety.
My own grandchildren learned how to boot up their family
computers at a very early age. For the youngest of
them, it was simply a matter of watching their older sisters and brothers as
they chatted online with their friends, worked on their school lessons, and
explored the mysteries of the cyber universe.
parents recognize that the Internet provides an exciting and
learning experiences for their children. Teaching online safety, and
learning together is a wonderful way for any family to enjoy it.

precious grandchildren and the last thing in this world that I ever
want to see is someone hurting them.
I'm certain that this
doesn't make me any different than every other parent, grandparent
