Planning a Safe and
Fun Filled vacation
Just a few more weeks
until "School will be Out" and Summer will officially be upon us.
It's probably a good time
to make your vacation plans- make sure it will be Fun Filled for

anti-virus and firewall software developers, we've been able to
avoid virus grief - at least those of us who have kept our

malware infection was detected during CounterSpy scans reported
to ThreatNet(tm), Sunbelt's community of opt-in users of CounterSpy
New threats that appeared for the first time in the top ten lists
include the Trojan. Vxgame and Blaire threats.
Sunbelt Software Company tags Vxgame as a severe threat -- a Trojan
program that silently downloads additional malware from the Internet
and lowers a user's system security settings by disabling the
Blaire is also a high risk threat -- a worm distributed through mass
emails. Once executed on a user's computer, it functions as a
backdoor, opens illicit network connections, and uses polymorphic
tactics to self-mutate, disable security software, modify system
files, and install additional malware.

There's been a lot of activity by caring webmasters and bloggers
focusing on the threats faced by our young children as they venture
more and more into the Wide World through the Internet.
Identifying online Child Predators and cyber stalkers certainly
presents a real problem. Fortunately, most of our teens are aware of
the threats and are alert enough to exercise caution when
encountering new 'friends' on the 'net.
Younger surfer's web activities can be monitored by alert parents
and guardians when they sit at their computers at home.
It's outside of the home where our children might be unsupervised
that stalkers and predators can present a serious threat. We've
trained our kids not to talk to strangers, nor accept rides, gifts
or candy from anyone they do not know, and maybe your neighborhood
seems to be safe and free of such criminal types.

April 1, 2008How Did
You Teach Your Children To Be Safe
When They Were learning to Surf the Internet?
We'd love to learn how you taught your kids to
be cautious and careful and avoid the threats from online scammers
and pedophiles when they were learning to explore the "web".
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.
Your experiences and successes could help a lot of other parents and
