With Internet hacker attacks becoming more common by the day, Internet users are often warned to check the legitimacy of the websites they visit. When you visit your bank's website to perform online banking transactions, for instance, you're supposed to look at the address bar on the web page to see if the bank's URL is preceded by an https:// rather than simply an https:// . On websites equipped with https:// security, you get a secure looking lock icon in the address bar that tells you that your connection to them is genuine and encrypted so that hackers can't listen in. In truth, though, such websites aren't really a guarantee of security. At least, they aren't anymore. How exactly is https supposed to be safer? In the beginning, years … Continue reading

Luckily, there's another way to keep computers safe: you can create a whitelist of apps that are safe. Turning on Windows Family Safety … Continue reading

Fortunately, email programs are much smarter and safer now. Today, you can open most malicious email without fear of catching a virus. What was it about email that made it unsafe? Email has been around for a long time, since when it carried nothing more than plain text. Over time, improvements made to the protocol allowed email, among other things, to carry executable code.
