our "Security Alert News Reporter" for May, 2004
It's been a while since you've heard
from us. We plan to change that.
Some time ago, you signed up to receive
Alerts of news and analysis on maintaining your personal and
computer security. Starting this month, we will deliver what we
We welcome you to this "Kick-Off"
edition and wish to express our appreciation and gratitude for your
Reporter" will be published
periodically to keep you up-to-date on the latest information we
gather for surviving the hectic hacker attacks on your computer
security that take place constantly.
Protection from Identity Theft is vitally important to all of
us. Guidelines, tips, resources for thwarting the thieves who practice
this nefarious activity will be another major topic.
Whatever is new will be shared with you.
And the 'Hottest' news everywhere you
look today seems
to be about Spyware.
And well it should be. Spyware, Adware and Malware infiltrate our
computers is many, many ways. They are nearly always invisible,
are not detected by most anti-virus software and get past the
firewalls because they
are often written into the various things that we subscribe to,
download, or open.
Take another look at the "Spam and
Spyware" pages on the Firewalls and Virus Protection site at
and download the Free spyware "Xcleaner" that will check
your system, clear History records, spyware, and a lot more
stuff you don't really want.
A report from Australia is quite
alarming: some visitors
to the "Survivor" website have had spyware placed into their computers
without their knowledge, just by clicking
on some links on the "Survivor" webpages.
We use 'Xcleaner' to scan our computer automatically
every time we boot up. It takes only a few seconds but
gives us a more comfortable feeling about our security
and surviving a similar fate.
Here's a way you can help your
family and friends
Many people using the internet wonder
if their firewalls and virus protection are good enough to
keep them safe. For
those of you who have visited our Firewalls site, you
know that the information there is all aimed toward
keeping you safe from hacker and cracker attacks.
Because it isn't always convenient to share your computer
with family and friends, we have created a small downloadable report
that can be printed and distributed to the people you'd like to help
avoid 'virus grief'.
It's a 9 page, easy reading guide. The
a ReadMe page with instructions for unzipping and using
your Acrobat Reader, and even a link to the Adobe website where you
can get your own free Acrobat Reader if you don't already have one.
Here's what we have planned for future editions of
Security Alert NewsReporter.
| Alerts on Latest Virus
threats and variations
Latest Anti-privacy theft measures
| Children, teens and other
Family security topics

| Latest Free resources
