: Office and home networks are essential tools- and the single most vulnerable security hole in our personal lives. Non-existent firewalls, out-dated virus protection and unsecured professional lives all contribute to information stolen online by hackers and spammers. Lack of education allows sophisticated criminals to steal personal information and countless unpaid hours of internet service through unsecured wireless networks. Virus makers and malicious spy ware can slip through holes in our networks. Even worse...our personal and corporate computers can also spread worms and viruses. PCs infected with worms and viruses become bogged down and sluggish. These viruses are also programmed to spread to each and every contact in your address book and contact manager. This can damage client relations, and can even lead to lawsuits. Furthermore, studies show that not protecting yourself from these attacks can cause you to not only lose precious personal information, but also to be legally liable for spreading the virus. While 77 percent of us believe we are protected, as many as two-thirds of all PCs are vulnerable.
