Digital Self Defense

Is the Internet becoming more and more of a jungle? Are you tired of dealing with Spyware? Viruses? Phishing? Do you still feel safe driving the Information Superhighway? How do you know if your computer is really protected?

In this day of rapidly increasing Internet threats you need a leg up, a way to protect yourself and your loved ones (and your computer) against all of those people on the Internet who are out to get you.
