Internet Security Tip

Craig's First Internet Tip this week is NetFlix

With Netflix you can rent as many DVDs as you want from the comfort of your home and have them delivered to your door in about 1 business day! There are no late fees and no due dates, and shipping is free both ways.

NetFlix is the premiere online movie company. With Netflix membership you'll be able to choose from any of their 40,000 titles That's five times the selection of a typical video store and it's CHEAP!!

They even offer movie recommendations based on how you rate movies, member reviews, critic reviews, top rented lists and special collections that will help you find all movies you'll love.

Security Tech Tip

Craig warns you to watch out for an IM from Yahoo Messenger which is the target of a phishing attack in which victims receive messages that appear to come from people on their buddy lists. When they click on a link in a message, they're transported to what they believe is a Yahoo Web site, where their login information is taken down by perpetrators.

MSN Messenger was hit by a worm attack earlier this month in which recipients were asked to click on a link, causing keylogging software to be downloaded onto the victims' PCs.

The Yahoo Messenger attack appears to be the result of a worm that steals buddy-list data and sends out instant messages containing a link to the phony Web site.

So be careful out there. DO NOT CLICK on any Link in your IM's unless you are expecting them.

Next Security Tip is that you must update your Anti-Virus daily and no less than weekly to stay protected.

This month it was the older worms and viruses dominated the list of Top 10 baddest apples. This was mostly in part to users not updating their anti-virus defenses, but also because 2005's virus database entries have been too weak to unseat the old guard.

According to the list produced by Sophos, the Zafi.d worm led the Top 10 for March by accounting for 45.1 percent of all the malicious traffic the U.K.-based security vendor monitored. Netsky.p came in second with 21 percent of the month's total. Rounding out the top 10 were Zafi.b, Sober.k, Netsky.d, Netsky.z, Netsky.b, MyDoom.o, Netsky.c, and Netsky.q.

These older worms continue to spread insidiously, and are not they are not dying off, and it's simply because a lot of you who haven't protected your computers.

Just because your new PC came with anti-virus software, you have to keep it up to date. Most of the versions that come on your computer are trial versions and typically expire in a few weeks. Also it is common for their databases to be out of date because they are built from old disk images.

UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE YOUR ANTI-VIRUS!!!
