Internet Tech Tip Of The Week

Why does your PC Need a GPU?

A GPU is not another confusing acronym -- it stands for a Graphics Processing Unit. A GPU is a second processor in your PC and it's designed to dramatically enhance your computer's overall performance all while providing ultra-realistic effects with smooth video as well as true colors and sharp photo images.

Security Tech Tip Of The Week

Phishing attacks are increasingly using key-loggers as another method to steal personal information.

These attacks usually redirect users to a bogus website and record details once they are entered. But the past six months has seen a tenfold rise in the number of phishing sites hosting key-logging software which can be transferred to a user's PC via an improperly patched browser.

At the end of last year there were only 10 phishing sites being found each week hosting such code, but by March this had risen to 100. Some web pages remained up for over a month, but the average time to take down a phishing site was 5.8 days.

The move to key-loggers could reflect growing security awareness among consumers regarding online commerce.

Bottom line: Don't give out personal information.
