7. Security Annoyances

Chapter 7. Security Annoyances

Up until a few years ago, only technical publications announced the appearance of a new virus or other type of security threat. Today, Computer security has become such an important issue that the mainstream press regularly covers the topic. However, when the nightly television news reports on computer security, the information is almost always incorrect. Television news writers love hyperbole (fires are “infernos,” car accidents are “disasters,” flooded streets are “deluges,” and so on). As a result, the coverage of security threats is designed to scare you, not assist you. When you read your local newspaper, pay no attention to the computer security articles on the news pages. Instead, head for the computer columnist’s page.
