I'm sick and tired of hackers, viruses, and spyware shutting down computers and websites on the Internet. Since my computer was hit by a hacker, virus, or spyware that shut it down just before Thanksgiving last year, it hasn't been compromised since. It's been attacked countless times, but I'm glad to say that it hasn't been compromised. Not ever! That's because I subscribe to a comprehensive managed security service.
Although the Internet basically provides a positive and productive experience, cyber-attacks against our personal privacy and security are reaching epidemic proportions. These attacks are occurring in our own homes and businesses. Our own computers are being used are being used as zombies to attack other people, businesses, and even our nation itself. As an average Internet user, you may not be aware of these threats nor have any idea about the dramatically increasing risks you face when connected to the Internet.
Even Xianz, a family-friendly and safe Christian site, has been hit by scammers and hackers. You might have been attacked yourself or might have seen or responded to the Scammer Alerts I initiated in order to warn, educate, and protect fellow-members.
Now I'm on a campaign for internet safety awareness and protection. My mission is to bring critical awareness to individuals, families, and small business owners, and to provide access to the necessary tools and ongoing expertise to secure your computer and help you stay protected.
I invite you to join the many thousands of others who have tested their computers, discovered these threats are real, and taken the necessary steps to protect themselves.
Take a free test to see what hackers, viruses, and spyware are hiding in your computer. Just click on the following link to go to:
Once there, click on the red Test button.
Now that you have become aware of these issues, I encourage you to share this vital information with your families, friends and communities. Together, we can reach many millions of people and inform them about the threats to their privacy and security, and help them get the protection they desperately need.
Remember: When you say No to hackers, viruses, and spyware, everyone wins! When you don't, we all lose!
