Protecting Your Family On the Internet
On the Internet, things are not always what they seem. An e-mail from your bank, asking you to change your online
password for security reasons, may actually be a fraud, sent by a
criminal hoping to access your account. A file attached to an e-mail from a friend may be, in reality, a
computer virus, sent without your friend‟s knowledge.
 And the 15-year-old girl your teenaged daughter has befriended
online could be, in truth, a 45-year-old male child molester.

These are just three examples of the many threats you and yourfamily face on the Internet. Hacker attacks, spyware, worms, identitytheft, pornographic spam, privacy intrusions
these, too, are now
everyday occurrences online.
Just how risky is the Internet today? Consider the following:
· The number of fraudulent e-mail messages
known as phishing
attacks, which are designed to steal critical data (such as bank 
passwords) from consumers and businesses
increased more than
1,000% from January to June 2008, according to an IBM report.Losses resulting from phishing scams range from $500 million to
$1 billion per year, as reported by The Wall Street Journal.· Eighty percent of users had some form of spyware on theircomputers in 2007, according to an America Online/NationalCyber Security Alliance survey.
· While yesterday‟s
viruses were primarily destructive, more thanhalf of the major viruses and malicious programs active during July-
December 2008 were designed to steal confidential information,
according to Consumer Reports.· Approximately one in five youths aged 10 to 17 have been
solicited for sex online, reports a survey from the U.S. Department
of Justice‟s Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.
 Fortunately, there are many effective precautions you can take, aswell as a variety of computer security tools available. The followingis a hands-on, practical guide to protecting yourself and your entire
family on the Internet.
