Chapter 9. Security Annoyances

Chapter 9. Security Annoyances

Ask people what concerns them the most about the Internet, and security will most likely top the list. Spyware, worms, Trojans, and viruses have all become accepted hazards of using the Internet, as have "phishing" expeditions, which route you to a phony web site that steals your personal information and passwords.

But there's no reason you should be bedeviled by these annoyances. This chapter gives you the tools and techniques to prevent or do away with them—it delves into special software solutions, shows you how to configure your home router for maximum security, tells you how to construct your own personal firewall, and more.
