    Your Digital Life - Is it at risk?

    Post by islandgrl on Mon Oct 03, 2011 10:50 am

    Do you have all the latest in new digital technology? See what may be at risk.



    Mobile devices are more vulnerable than home computers because they are used in a wider variety of locations and on a greater number of networks. With hundreds of thousands of apps available, the sheer variety of offerings opens a slew of possible gateways for nefarious software. The growing trend toward mobile payments and banking -- last week, Google launched its own version of an e-wallet -- adds another potential layer of vulnerability.

    The threats to our information lives are diverse. In the realm of the strictly physical, damage to a device could potentially mean losing thousands of dollars of stored files. The loss or theft of a mobile device would have the same impact, as well as opening up the possibility of identity theft. But a growing danger involves invisible threats -- aka malware. Under this heading fall viruses, spyware and other nastiness embedded into seemingly harmless free apps that can be remotely "weaponized" by a hacker to trawl for select data and access accounts through your phone. According to McAfee data, 2 million new pieces of malware are discovered each month. Last year, malicious programs and sites cost U.S. consumers more than $2.3 billion, according to Consumer Reports.

    We use our cell phone (aka Mobile device) for phoning and nothing else. I guess it pays to still be in the "dark ages" when it comes to all the latest in technology! lol!

    I'm sooooooo not at risk, because I'm so "digiatally challenged"!! My 'puter and I have a sceptical relationship.....and all that I can do with my cel-phone is say "hello" and "goodbye"...and my latest device is my digital camera and "she" and I are at war! Ugh!...I have no patience for technology......but give me a bunch of paint and brushes and a glue gun and crafting materials....and I shine!! Laughing

    Hmmmmmmmm....maybe even a pen and a a pad of paper...will do! Very Happy
