Security Myths and Misinformation

  1. When it comes to protecting your system(s), one can not be to paranoid!
    Of course, if you don't have anything precious on your computer that
    you really need to keep, then it's a moot point -- hey, just wipe it
    clean and reinstall.

    However, most of us have at least a contact list, some home pictures
    of the kids and family, and perhaps some personal tax records. Losses
    of these can be -- shall we say DIFFICULT to cope with.

    Here are two articles that reach into our normal assumptions about
    what we (think) we know and how we use our systems.
    (btw: definition of assumption: making an A** out of You and Me,
    sort of like insanity: doing the same thing over and over but
    expecting a different result!)

    Ok, enough -- the articles are
    part-1

    part-2
