Online Security Risks

Online security can be enhanced, by noting prudent habits, of knowing what to do when it happens, I have devised a list of security risks, one needs to know, when using the Internet;

1) Mail and News – Downloading mail and news poised a security risk, with Mail and News clients like Outlook Express, MsOutlook and Thunderbird, always keep Security patches to the latest, to prevent exploits, with a good antivirus mail scanner, even at times if the newsgroup articles contain malicious codes, Norman’s Antivirus could easily detect and isolate it.

2) Temporary Internet Files – One of the most exploits of security risk, is rouge websites downloading tracking cookies, malware, spyware with tons of graphic files containing executable codes, and it pays to often maintain, your Temporary Internet Files, by deleting it once every few months.

3) Get a good Password container, for logging into different websites.

4) Always keep your Windows Update patches, to the latest security patches, especially Critical patches.

5) Phlishing and DNS redirection – One of the biggest headaches, and nowadays, it is critical to observe, especially receiving emails and logging into website, to watch out for phlishing scams, by identifying its origins, from where the article comes from, especially with sensitive IDs and passwords, to login to banking services and auction website, things that will cause you a financial loss.

6) Memory Leaks and Denial of Service attacks. As majority of this exploits comes from the Internet, and is very difficult to stop, especially when downloading programs, that contain malicious codes, and scanning of your system resources, that detects security risks, without a good firewall program, you are actually opening up, your PC to a host of security risks.

If prudent maintainance has been done, with intelligent knowledge on using the Internet, security exploits can be kept to a minimum, ensuring a safer Internet. I have managed to solve and isolate, 99% of all security risks on the Internet. It is also technically achievable, to offer realtime protection for networks, against all possible threats, it just need a review, on all possible hardware and software, to cover all loopholes.
