Security

 

The two biggest reasons why most people fail to get the full value from their computers are: (1) they don't learn how to use the equipment properly and (2) concerns over Internet security. We address the first point elsewhere in Wrinklies.co.uk; this section is designed to help you understand the risks and vulnerabilities and to disseminate information and advice to counter the threats.

Whether it is for financial gain in obtaining sensitive information, such as credit card numbers, bank details etc., or just the perverted pleasure in causing disruption on a small or grand scale, all computers are target for intruders. Sometimes they want access to your computer’s resources, such as hard disk space, fast processor power or your Internet connection (particularly faster broadband "always-on" connections) and will then use your resources to launch attacks on others thereby making it harder to track them. Since home computer users and small businesses are typically not as security aware as larger businesses, they become easier targets for attack because they are easy to break into.

But the value of email and the Internet is too great to allow the idiots to ruin the potential benefits that advances in the Internet and computing technology. So don't be put off – read on and share your experiences with other members.
