Symantec Global internet Security threat report

  • When conducting higher-risk internet activities, such as online banking or purchases, consumers should do so only on their own computers and not public ones. Further, they should not store passwords or bankcard numbers.

  • review bank, credit card, and credit information frequently to monitor any irregular activities. For further information, the internet Crime Complaint Center (iC3) has also released a set of guidelines on how to avoid internet-related scams. See http://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx for more information.

  • Be aware that security risks may be automatically installed on computers with the installation of file- sharing programs, free downloads, and freeware and shareware versions of software.

  • Avoid clicking on links and/or attachments in email or iM messages, as these may also expose computers to unnecessary risks.

  • read end-user license agreements (EULAs) carefully and understand all terms before agreeing to them as some security risks can be installed after an end user has accepted the EULA or because of that acceptance.

  • Be aware of programs that flash ads in the user interface. Many spyware programs track how users respond to these ads, and their presence is a red flag. these ads may be spyware.
