Virus and Spam the How and Why.

I have a lot of friends that ask me
about what to do with all the spam, Trojans, and viruses. I have
found a few current articles that I think that people should read.
It will answer many questions about the aforementioned.

If you read about you recent statistics
on virus and spam infections will understand how much of a problem
this is. And all this leads to bot
nets
that take control of multiple computers to send out spam.
There is a good article
at the Washington Post
about what gets done with bot nets. Over at Linux-Watch
is a good article about why one should not use Windows or at least be
vary cautious about using it.

There are some things that you can do
about this and there are people
that are working on getting rid of ‘Command and Control’ servers
that control all these bot nets. Again at the Washington Post there
is another
article
about what you can do about protecting yourself from
these threats.
