Be aware in Wi-Fi zones, hacker alert
3/5/2006 9:09:52 PM
PROBLEM: Having an unsecure computer in a Wi-Fi hot spot SOLUTION: Connect to a legitimate service provider and make sure the paid service you tap into is the one advertised for that location. Resist using a free signal; it could be a hacker nearby waiting for people to use the decoy Internet access. • Use your e-mail provider’s online Web site instead of sending and receiving mail from the e-mail software program on your desktop. Web-based services are more likely than desktop software to have an extra layer of security that protects data transmissions. • Make the most of your computer’s built-in security features. Most PCs come with a firewall; make sure it is turned on. If you use fire-sharing services from home, turn off your file-sharing capability when you’re in public. • Keep your automatic update feature turned on so you always have the latest versions of your software and operating systems. • Finally, be aware of who is nearby when typing in information such as passwords.

A Company called Kanosis has developed a new technology "COIL" that will eliminate the fear of these hackers, crackers, viruses etc. They are still in pre-launch but are very close to going public. You can join NOW by special invite. Visit: http://tinyurl.com/lpkmg My username is sunnydayz

Hi Jack, I dont think COIL will make it. They are having a hard time getting good marketing. Its a good concept, but alot of people wont like the idea of uploading thier HD contents to a server. They have heard too many stories of data being stolen. The MLM part of it seems to be doing well though. Take care,

So called free, freeware and shareware products for combatting spyware and adware and virus should be AVOIDED. They often themselves have spyware and tracking code in them. Only use commerical software that you know you can trust and is kept up to date. Shareware and freeware companies dont have the money to do this. DO NOT be fooled into thinkig they do. I have been in the computer inductery for over 30 years and have seen over and over the dangers of using so called "free" stuff.
