Beginner / Newbie Steps to Protect Your Computer Data

As long as you connect to the Internet (browse, eMail), your computer is not safe. Running NON-Windows (MAC or Linux) increases your computer safety, BUT gives your fewer choices to protect, clean-up your computer (my opinion) and, more importantly, fewer choices in Applications. 1] How to protect your computer and it's data A] PASSWORDS 1) Do not pick easily discovered passwords. 2) Set the Administrator password - DO NOT EVER FORGET THIS. 3) You may wish to add a Boot up (also called a hard drive or BIOS) password - DO NOT EVER FORGET THIS - If you have a laptop (mobile computer) or other unknown people could get at your computer. You will have to look up this procedure in computer or motherboard owner's manual. 4) Do not pick simple passwords - combine upper case lower case and symbols. 5) Make passwords at least 10 characters in length 6) Do not use birthdates, names of relatives or pets as part of your password. 7) Do not use words found in a dictionary as passwords nor as part of passwords. 8) Submit your password here, to find out how strong is the password. Generate Secure Passwords here 9) Consider using a free password (key) SAFE to protect your passwords. (Symantec) Norton's 360 includes: Identity (password) Safe B] Always keep your Operating System (usually Windows?) up-to-date. NOTE: Microsoft generally releases updates on the SECOND TUESDAY of the MONTH. C] Always run a good anti-virus and a good anti-malware program(s). Norton 360 combines these and other needed protection. ALWAYS keep these up-to-date. Again for 2011, 2010, 2009 & 2008, PCWorld and I suggest (Symantec's) NORTON 360. Note - it is very fast, these days. D] Always keep your applications up-to-date (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Adobe Reader, JAVA... E] You really should use a (they are cheap) Hardware Firewall. You may already have one. F] EMAIL - do not open emails from unknown persons. Do not open any email attachments, UNLESS you are expected it, from that person. For more EMAIL security information I suggest using a keyword on YOUR outgoing emails that contain attachments - this shows that you, not a virus, actually sent the attachment. Let your correspondents know what keyword you use. For more EMAIL safety tips, click here G] You should use a Software Firewall to prevent bad programs from sending your data back to their home. I suggest the one included with NORTON 360. I do prefer ZoneAlarm's software firewall, but I'd rather not have Norton trying to nicely interact with an other software firewall. H] I strongly advise using Firefox 27.0.1 (or later) WITH NoScript and BetterPrivacy (to squash Flash Cookies) as a Browser. If you want to use Internet Explorer, use IE 9 (or later). I] I suggest using Mozilla's THUNDERBIRD as an email program rather than any Microsoft email program - I believe it is much safer. Thunderbird Version 24.2.0 has been released J] I suggest setting your browser to remove Cookies after you shutdown the browser. This is usually an option of the web browser. K] I suggest (automatically) deleting ALL temporary files when you shut windows down. CCleaner is both good and free - I've used it for many years. Latest version 3/03/2013 = Version 3.28.1913 I have used this for Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 2008, Windows 2003 32 and 64-bit versions. I have never had a problem with CCleaner. GET THE FREE, UNSUPPORTED VERSION OF CCLEANER I also HIGHLY recommend the free CCleaner for fixing REGISTRY problems. If CCleaner finds any Registry Problems, it will ask if you want to backup the Registry prior to making the fixes - YES - ALWAYS BACKUP PRIOR TO MAKING CHANGEES TO THE REGISTRY. USING CCLEANER TO FIX REGISTRY PROBLEMS - Use the Free, unsupported version This is NOT the same technique for ccleaner to remove unneeded files. This simple procedure will make your Windows computer run faster & more reliably 1) Run CCleaner (download the FREE version) 2) Click on REGISTRY (an icon on the left side of the CCleaner window) 3) Ensure that ALL little Registry Boxes have check marks in them 4) SCAN FOR ISSUES (click on this "button" - bottom of window, left of center) 5) If it finds any issues, Click on FIX SELECTED ISSUES (ALL issues) 6) DO You want to backup changes to the registry - YES <<<< always back it up 7) You can optionally change the name of the backup file 8) FIX ALL SELECTED ISSUES 9) when done, click on CLOSE 10) REBOOT your computer (so the fixes can take effect) CCLeaner also allows you to: 1) List all programs that run at system startup and allows you to prevent un-needed applications from running at Startup. 2} Allows you to restore earlier System Saves (Checkpoints). Five tips for using Ccleaner to degunk your system - techrepublic Putting Registry-/system-cleanup apps to the test ccleaner - DOCUMENTATION ccleaner - FORUM You may also wish to peruse my WINDOWS TIPS and SYSTEM STARTUP INFORMATION. You may also wish to peruse my REGISTRY INFORMATION. L] personally. I don't use any form of IM (Instant Messenger), as I believe that they pose a security risk - it's up to you. M] Make your file extensions visible - this helps prevent accidentally executing a piece of Malware. Open Windows Explorer or any folder window and click: Tools->Folder Options->View Ensure that the option Hide file extensions for known file types is UNchecked. Disable hidden filename extensions Files that are executable (such as .com, .cmd .exe,...) are more dangerous than others. Click here for more information N] Turn of the Windows Messenger Service - this is NOT the same thing as an Instant Message, and has nothing to do with Instant Messages. If this is on, Malware can take control of your computer. O] Turn off JAVA (I use NoScript to do this task) in your web browser. Even Microsoft recommends DIS-allowing unknown sites to use JAVA. This may cause some websites to not run correctly. NoScript lets you allow specified sites to run JAVA OR other scrpting languages. P] Turn OFF JavaScript (I use NoScript to do this task) in your web browser. Even Microsoft recommends DIS-allowing unknown sites to use JavaScript. This may cause some websites to not run correctly. NoScript lets you allow specified sites to run JavaScript, and other scripting languages. Q] Click here for more BEGINNER's / NOVICE / Impoving computer seccurity guides R] DISCONNECT FROM THE INTERNET WHEN NOT USING IT If your cable modem has a switch that disconnects the modem from the Internet (your ISP), consider disconnecting from the Internet when you are not actually using the Internet (I do this). This prevents attacks on your computer when you are not using it. Newer Motorola cable modems have this disconnect switch. DO NOT TURN OFF YOUR INTERNET MODEM IF YOU USE VoIP for a phone connection - such as Vonage, or Time-Warner's Digital Phone, or SKYPE - as this will disconnect your phone(s). S] Backup your computer - this is not very expensive these days. 2] What to do if you think you have a virus or Malware on your computer. 3] Identity Theft preventiuon and information

AD Trackers - cell phones - STOP THEM

The easiest way to stop most of these targeted ads on your cell phone is to simply turn off the GPS, which is what you should probably do most of the time anyway - only turn it on when you need to use a GPS (maps, nearby retail stores,...). NOTE THAT PHOTOS OF YOUR CHILD TAKEN WITH YOUR PHONE WITH GPS ON IT WILL TELL PEOPLE
EXACTLY WHERE SHE WAS - NOT AT ALL SECURE [it is possible to remove location data from JPGs and other Digital pictures]. Stop those ad trackers on your smartphones! - Komando.com

If all else fails, purchase Spy Sweeper, $30/yr. Version 5.8.1 (build 51), has been released. DO NOT upgrade to 5.8.1 Build 55 - installation files seem to be corrupt, and caused me to go back to Version 5.8.1 (build 51), I am also using, purchased SpyWare Doctor - $30 They offer a free scan, but charge the $30/yr if you want to remove the pests. In my personal opinion, I prefer Spy Sweeper. NEVER download a spyware program without investigating it first (see below).

Spyware and Adware are files made by publishers that allow them to snoop on your browsing activity, see what you purchase and send you "pop-up" ads. They can slow down your PC, cause it to crash, and worse. If you are like most Internet users, chances are you are probably infected with these files. Simply surfing the Internet, reading email, downloading music or other files can infect your PC without you knowing it.

All users who have these versions of the plugin installed in Firefox 17 and above. What does this mean? The problematic add-on or plugin will be automatically disabled and no longer usable.

BHOs - Browser Helper Objects (CLSID)

A BHO is a small program that extends Microsoft's Internet Explorer. Examples of BHO usage include visible add-on toolbars in IE, but can also be hidden functions. Adware and spyware as well as browser hijackers often use BHOs to display ads or follow your moves across the internet, because a BHO has access to each URL you visit and can redirect you or display other pages than you requested (sites that infect your PC with Malware or ads, for example). BHOs often use ActiveX installation programs. PERSONALLY, I BLOCK Active-X from running from non-trusted sites. I am running PCWorld's free BHODemon2 Version: 2.0.0.23, which notifies me when BHOs try to install (I can block the installation). I can also block installed BHOs from running. However, I suggest that you run Firefox instead of Internet Explorer.

This section discuss cleanup, NOT removal of Malware.

CROSS-SITE SCRIPTING (XSS)

NoScript

NoScript is an excellent FireFox add-on that (mostly) prevents Cross-Site scripting from being used to destroy your computer via a web page directing your web browser to a different site, and installing malicious software. I highly recommend running NoScript V. Rational tools (IBM) (with the FireFox 27.0.1 web browser, INSTEAD of Microsoft's Internet Explorer). US-CERT now recommends NoScript as a secure browsing practice. THIS IS NOW OLD NEWS, BUT MAY STILL BE OF INTEREST:? While I love the NoScript add-on for FireFox, version 1.8.1 broke my access to (Time-Warner) Road Runner's Web Mail service. Upon investigating, I found that I had to: 1] open the NoScript OPTIONS window 2] Select HTTPS 3] DE-select ENABLE AUTOMATIC SECURE COOKIES MANAGEMENT in-order-to be able to access my email via FireFox 3.0.6 THIS WAS FIXED - NoScript's defaults were changed. I also recommend (in the NoScript Options window): 1] Clicking on the UNTRUSTED tab 2] Click on (select) FORBID 'WEB BUGS' 3] Click on OK Automatic Secure Cookie Management, is now turned OFF by default. NoScript, version 2.6.8.14, a free Mozilla Firefox Extension, blocks Cross-site Scripting (XSS). Cross-site scripting - Wikipedia CERT Advisory CA-2000-02 Malicious HTML Tags Embedded in Client ...

Buy only Digital cordless phones that use Encryption. (anyone can listen to your analog or un-encrypted digital phone conversations). I would buy only the phones that use the 6.0 MHz spectrum. I personally prefer the phones made by Uniden.

Data Held for Ransom

A malicious type of attack dubbed "ransomware" is on the rise. Strange as it sounds, one of the newer dangers is software that Encrypts your data, and then demands that you pay a ransom of as much as $400 USD to get access to your data. This technique targets Windows users. Often, ransomware encrypts the Windows Master Boot Record (MBR). Cryzip is an early example of such a program. Cryzip locates 44 different file types, zips them into an encrypted zip file, deletes the original files, and then presents you with a ransom demand. Sometimes you can recover most of your files with an undelete program. Some free File Undelete programs are here, at PC World. Other Free File UNDELETE Software PC World recommends that you do not pay the ransom, nor go to any specified links. Instead, make a police report, using an uninfected computer, search the Internet for the text in the ransom "note".

Data In Motion (enterprise data loss)

Data in Motion describes enterprise data that is in the midst of being accessed, stored, sent to remote sites, archieved. The main premis is that it might be easier for criminals to gain access to data that is being moved. There is a lot of emphasis put on securing data in motion (encrypting), and not as much thought into storing the data as encrypted. I.e., it might be much easier for criminals to hack into non-encrypted, stored data, than to try to decrypt secured data in motion.

DNS CHANGER MALWARE - IMPORTANT

DNS CHANGER MALWARE MAY PREVENT YOUR COMPUTER FROM ACCESSING THE INTERNET AFTER JULY 9, 2012 (If your computer is infected). The short story is, if your computer is infected, it has been looking at the wrong Internet site to get the correct Internet address. Bad guys caused this. The FBI put the bad guys out of business, but infected computers still point to bogus Internet sites. For a While the FBI was running the bogus sites to allow infected computers to correctly search the Internet, but this is TOO expensive, so the FBI is going to stop maintaining these bogus internet sites on July 9, 2012. After July 9, 2012, Infected computers will not be able to access the Internet, because they do not know the real location of the Internet web sites. There is a simple test that you can perform to see if your computer is one of the infected computers. DNSChanger is not the end of the world FBI Steps Up 'Internet Doomsday' Awareness Malware Campaign FBI says infected users must deal with DNS changer malware or risk losing Internet in July, 2012.

DOWNLOADS - Useful Software & caveats

1] Always download from reputable sites - some sites considered safer than most might include: tucows, download.com, PCworld and Jumbo. NOTE that very rarely, even these sites get hacked. 2] If you know the maker of the software, got to their site. I recommend using Google to locate the real site, rather than keying it in. 3] Browsers such as FireFox 20.0.1 and Newer will use your computer's anti-virus to scan downloads on-the-fly.

FIREWALLS

I strongly recommend BOTH a Hardware Firewall and a Software Firewall (free ZoneAlarm works very well). ZoneAlarm (and other such software) can prevent those spyware and keylogger programs from "calling home" with your personal information. A Hardware Firewall helps prevent Hackers from coming INTO you computer. I have replaced the excellent ZoneAlarm Firewall (my favorite) with the Firewall that comes with Norton's 360 (Internet protection Suite). This way, I know that there are no conflicts between using softwar from different vendors. I am NO LONGER using ZoneAlarm Pro - I use Norton 360, instead.

HOSTS file

Access to/from Sites (URLs/Web addresses) listed in your "hosts" file are blocked or re-directed to specific IP addresses by Microsoft Windows. Hosts files were originally (an are still used) used in Unix, MAC OS, and now Linux and Windows operating systems as a method to prevent suspected, alleged, "bad/AD depositing/Spyware depositiong/..." sites from effecting your computer. The contents of your Hosts file may be edited. If you run Anti-Spyware or Anti-Virus programs, you may have to use one of those programs to edit the Hosts file (otherwise, those programs may try to proect your computer by NOT allowing you to edit to the Host file). Both your Anti-virus and Anti-Spyware programs will probably automatically add hundreds of suspected, alleged, "bad" sites to your Host file, in an effort to protect your computer from these sites. Normally, You the computer user, would have NO need to worry about, modify, nor setup your computer's Hosts file. Only Advanced users may wish to modify the Hosts file. NOTE that some Malware modifies your HOSTS file to prevent you from getting to URLs of known Malware detection and corrections sites.

NOTES (all OPINIONS - use at your own risk) 1] It is not possible to use software to detect hardware keyloggers 2] Software keyloggers seem to be of two types: A] Ones that use a software "hook" about 65% of all SW keyloggers These can be much more effectively found/blocked - 99%+ ??? B] Those that do NOT work by hooking into system software. 3] Using a very good OUTBOUND software Firewall, such as Zone Labs ZoneAlarm, can prevent the keyloggers from reporting back their stolen information (not 100% effective, as I can think of ways that the payload can be retrieved). 4] Don't use the same password for different sites. 5] Change passwords often. 6] Use your mouse to confuse keyloggers 7] Use a secure, encrypted keyword "Safe" - BUT enter the data via tip #6, above. Alos export and save OFF of your computer, a complete list of your IDs and Passwords, in case your system crashes and your keyword safe stops working.

MAN in the MIDDLE Attacks

A man in the middle attack occurs when an attacker can direct the client/server traffic through his/her/their computer system and modify or capture the data (which could be messages). Carnegie-Mellon University has come up with a method of detecting man in the middle attacks. The Carnegie-Mellon solution, Perspectives, is discussed in this paper. If the Detection mechanism detects a problem, DO NOT SEND personal data. Even if the Detection Mechanism (called Perspectives detects no problem, most of us would NOT trust the site.

ONLINE BANKING

While useful, online banking can be very dangerous to your wealth. There are many Key Loggers and other such Malware ready to send your bank account numbers and passwords to the crooks. If you must bank online, I strongly suggest that: 1] Do NOT send any private information (account numbers, passwords,...) UNLESS you see the "Lock" symbol (scroll down a little) on your web browser, indicating that the transaction is being send ENCRYPTED. See also: The "LOCK" security symbol 2] You use a Password Safe to keep and supply your account numbers and passwords. If you don't use a password safe, at least confuse the key logger. 3] Delete ALL temporary files immediately after doing your online banking. You could use the free CCleaner. 4] Use STRONG (not easily guessed or computed) Passwords. 5) Use an OUT-GOING Firewall to help prevent Malware from sending your banking information to the crooks. I currently use the one built into (Symantec's) Norton's 360 Version 5.0. ENSURE that it is turned on (configured) to stop BOTH unknown incoming AND outgoing Internet traffic. 6] If possible, use some non-Microsoft-Windows operating system, such as Linux or MAC OS X (there are fewer malware programs written for these operating systems, although Malware does exist for them). Majority Of Online Banking Customers Use Same Credentials On Other Less-Secure Websites NSW Police: Don't use Windows for internet banking

PASSWORD (Key) SAFES

The advantages of Password Safes: A] You don't have to remember the poassword B] KEYLOGGERS CAN NOT GET YOUR PASSWORD IF A PASSWORD SAFE IS USED TO SUPPLY THE PASSWORD. The problems with password safes: A] You must export (I'd print) a list of them, in case your system crashes. B] What happens if your subscription to Norton's 360 expires (it includes the password safe that I use)? I'll have to check on that. C] You have to log-in to your password safe. D] If you go to a site that allows logins, your password safe will probably ask if you want to sign in, or if you want it to save your password. Where to get a Password Safe: Do NOT use one that works online - you want the program on your computer. A] It comes free with Norton's 360 anti-Malware Suite (Version 5.0). B] With Password Safe, a free Windows utility designed by Bruce Schneier I'm a fan of Bruce Schneier - I'd use his if your anti-Malware doesn't supply one. C] Password Safe - Sourceforge D] KeePass Password Safe - open source password manager E] Password safe - Free Password Manager F] KeePass Password Safe 1.11 - C/NET G] COMODO I-Vault - Free Password Management NOT FREE - THESE HAVE SOME KIND OF COST: A] RoboForm 6.9 - (most popular for pay) C/NET A friend uses/likes it (it is not free). RoboForm creates complex passwords for you, and keeps them encrypted. RoboForm then supplies the passwords then needed (you don't type them). You can get a printout of your encrypted passwords for a backup. RoboForm review RoboForm download site. WARNING - WHEN MY (2009) NORTON 360 EXPIRED, IT WOULD NO LONGER EVEN RUN (as opposed to no longer getting updates). I FIND THIS COMPLETELY WRONG (my opinion). I CONSIDER NORTON 360 THE BEST ANTI-MALWARE (and I still use it). (I feel that it should just stop updating itself, while, of course, warning the user that that the protection is obsolete). This (not running after the expiration date) IMPLIES THAT YOU HAD BETTER PRINT OUT ANY ID/PASSWORDS THAT YOU HAVE IN NORTON'S IDENTITY SAFE BEFORE YOUR NORTON EXPIRES.

PHARMING

Phishing uses social engineering to convince users to enter personal information onto a faked site that collects the data for the criminals. Pharming goes one better, so when a user enters a perfectly legit URL of their choice (like their bank) they are hijacked and taken to the criminals' faked site. No social engineering involved. BROWSER PATCHES TO SHOW THE FAKED URL ARE USUALLY AVAILABLE. There is a tool that will help you fight both the phishers and the pharmers. It's a browser plug-in from a company called Netcraft. Larry Seltzer did a review. Of course, the latest Pharming attacks are based on phoney Swine Flu emails.

Port Knocking

Port Knocking is a technique of opening Firewall ports by attempting a connection that causes the Firewall to open up certain computer ports in anticipation of a legitmate connection. The best method of avoiding Port Knocking is to set all of your computer ports to Stealth Mode, wherein your computer does not respond AT ALL when it receives an unsolicited message to any of your computer ports. PERSONALLY, I believe that Zone Alarm Pro does the best job of locking your computer ports. You can check the status of your computer ports by going to GRC's SHIELDS UP, scroll down and run the "PROCEED" option, then scroll down & select Common Ports. Port Knocking - wikipedia

PUP - Probably/Possibly Unwanted Programs

Unasked-for software that was installed on your system. Often considered non-maligant malware. Usually installed when you install something your want. You can sometimes opt out of installing these, if you do the Custom install (NOT the default install). I DELETE THEM (via Selecting all PUPs - Malwarebytes In Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, PUP detection will show up unchecked on the results list by default. The user would have to manually check them for removal to ensure that they do indeed want these removed. But if you ever find yourself staring at a giant list of PUPs to check mark and remove, to do so quickly, you can highlight one of the detection by left clicking on it. Then, right-click on the highlighted detection, and click Check all items. Next, select Remove Selected. Additionally, you can change the default to automatically check mark all PUPs to ready for removal by following the directions below.

REGISTRY (Windows)

A lot of malware makes entries in the Windows Registry file, so that the malware can restart itself if killed, and hide itself in various places on your computer. Therefore, it is often necessary for the user to modify (via malware removal programs) these Registry file entries.

SPOOFING

Making an email's address and header information apear to come from someone other than the real sender. Spoofing is often used for some fraudulent purpose. Criminals often spoof real websites. Spoofers often send SPAM emails, These days, more and more web sites (think Banks, Credit Unions, Social Security) are being spoofed. Some of thse spoofs are so good, users can not tell that they are fake, just by looking at them. E-mail spoofing - Wikipedia How to recognize spoofed Web sites To help avoid spoofing problems: 1] Browse with a secure web browser that alerts you to known spoofed URLs I use Firefox with: [A] NoScript addon for Firefox and [B] Norton's Phishing indicator (built-in) and McAfee's SiteAdvisor and [C] WOT (Web-Of-Trust) version 20110704.

Please go HERE for more information. OR 2] The older type - which tracks where you go and what you do, to attempt to target you with ads more suited to your tastes - I call this ADWARE. I Currently (9/24/2011) use ONLY Norton's 360 Version 5 to combat Spyware. If I suspect that I have problems, I run additional, one-time scans, using other Malware removers. YOU NEED TO ACTUALLY BUY A NEW VERSION EACH YEAR (NOT just the updates), as the program's functionilty gets better each year, and you'll only get that with a new version of the actual PROGRAM (Norton's 360 security suite). I no longer run the (good) Webroot Spy Sweeper, as I got tired of programs fighting each other (reporting other anti-malware programs as actual malware. This way, Norton's 360 does everything, and does not conflict with anything. I was using Webroot's Spy Sweeper to fight Spyware.

THUNDERBIRD (Mozilla's free eMail program)

I prefer Thunderbird to any Microsoft eMail program, as fewer Hackers target Thunderbird than target Microsoft eMail products. NOTE: Mozilla wants to donate Thunderbird to the public (making it open-source) - at some point in time, Mozilla wants to stop supporting Thunderbird (8/2008). SO, FAR, 11/11/2013, Mozilla is still supporting Thunderbird. Thunderbird 24.2.0 is out If you update to Thunderbird 3.1.x, from 2.x.x.x, you may find, as I did, that you can no longer send emails, because Thunderbird complains about at Security problem with your SMTP server.

Vibrant Media MALWARE (usually on Linux / Unix)

It alters your Browser's Home page to: 1] Go to Your usual broswer home page 2] Open three more browser tabs pointing to their ADs.

On of my Redhat Enterprise 5.5 systems, running anti-malware, was attacked and altered. I first looked for evidence of more difficult attacks, before realizing that it was my Firefox Browser's shortcut (the ICON used to invoke FireFox) that had been altered; The attack changed my Home page to this format: "http://www.woodsmall.com/\http://www-first-link-to-their-site\http://www-second-link-to-their-site" I had been searching for some tehcnical information.

BOTS (ZOMBIES) - Armies of (Ro)BOTS (Botnets) - INFORMATION

One of the fastest growing Windows computer threats are armies of "Bots" (robots), also called "Zombies". Many people make money by selling software to create these Bots. Bots are usually sent to infect your computer by being distributed in Email attachments, often appearing to be from people you know. There are over a 100 known kits to create bots, for sale (5/2006). Once on your computer, these Bots take over control of your computer and use it to capture fiancial data and your account user names and passwords. These information is often sent, encrypted, back to the criminals for their use. The bots then use your computer to mount attacks on other computers. Monitor Botnet Threats Your Antivirus Can't See - free security tool - BotHunter 6 things you should know about botnet attacks - GCN Invasion of the botnets: Cyberattacks on the rise The First Linux Botnet Botnet threats and countermeasures RUBotted - a free program to find Out if Your PC is Part of a Botnet There are few really good defenses against Bots except for the usual: Symantec has released Norton's ANTIBOT, which I AM using. Anti-Bot is apparently now bundled into Norton's 350 and apparently no longer sold as a separate Utility. Antibot was well-rated by PC Magazine. Here are the usual methods of avoiding BOTs: 1] Never open email attachments, even from people that you know, with out first checking with that person to ensure that they really sent you this particular attachment. I use a pre-designated codeword to let others know that the email is really from me. (you and your email correspondants agree on a particular codeword, for example "PACKRAT" - then you always include the codeword PACKRAT in the Subject line of your Email. Put the codeword close to the beginning of the Subject line, so that is easily viewable in the short display area of your email program. 2] Of course, you are running a hardware Firewall (I hope), but also run a software firewall, such as the free ZoneAlarm. The hardware firewall helps screen out incoming Malware, but one of the duties of the software Firewall is to prevent these Zombies from sending your data OUT of your computer. Click here for more information about Firewalls. NOTE that the Windows XP Firewall can NOT prevent keyloggers from sending your data OUT to criminals, but ZoneAlarm can prevent programs from sending outgoing data. 3] Consider using an email program other than Microsoft's, as most Malware targets Microsoft's software. I use Mozilla's Thunderbird for Email. Spotlight On Bots: The World's Most Un-Wanted Bots - Symantec 1] Denial of Service Bot, aka "DoS Bot" 2] Extortion Bot, aka "Bling Bot" 3] Identity Theft Bot, aka "Bot Simpson" 4] Spambot, aka "Spam-a-bot," "Canned Spam" 5] Fraud Bot, aka "Phishing Bot," "Bot Water" Botnet Floods Major Websites With Fake SSL Connections More Researchers Going On The Offensive To Kill Botnets
