Improve Your Computer's Security Today

One good way of increasing the security of your computer system is to let go of these security myths.

[an error occurred while processing this directive]

Myth #1: Patches fix the security hole.
No, don't give up on installing patches, but don't rest on your patch laurels either.

Myth #2: SSL is secure.
I'm guilty of this. Each time I see the lock icon when paying online via credit card, I always think it's secure.

Myth #3: Theoretical vulnerabilities don't pose a danger.
Why wait for theory to become the next big computer security news item, right?

Myth #4: Wireless networks are not secure.
I'm allergic to wireless networks because I always thought they were not secure right from the start. Looks like wireless security has improved since then. I just wish these security settings were "on" by default instead of you having to set the options yourself.
