Search Engine Safety
« on: June 30, 2006, 01:50:29 PM »
Certain search terms can put your PC at great risk. Among the most dangerous:
1. free screensavers
2. download music 
3. free games 
4. singers 
5. bearshare 
6. kazaa
In many of these cases, up to 72 percent of the results returned by search engines contained web sites linking
directly to malware (Spyware) downloads and put users at great risk for identity theft.

Hi Bob3160,

Yes, that is why you search www.scandoo.com, and you know where you have to stay out.

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

True my friend and it works very well however,
an ounce of prevention is still better than a pound of cure.  :)
