Hello,
I am sure this is not the proper place for this BUT>>> I just learned of Secunia tonight through another forum discussing Browser securities. I am an i-net user now for @12 yrs. and the first thing that caught my interest was how vulnerable our PC's are to outside attack. Usually for the entertainment of some a-hole just getting a personal rise.
I became almost 100% consumed on keeping my personal info protected.
I am looking forward to future interaction with this forum. After browsing a few of the threads here I see other folks are just as consumed with this problem and encroachment on us as I am.
We will will learn from you and expand our understanding.
Thanks for letting me join!
BooMan

Good morning and welcome Booman ! Although I did have some experience with an office computer back in the '80's: ( it wasn't the internet then ): I've only been on the web for about 14/15 months or so. Luckily, I learned of Secunia early on,and I've found that coupled with confidence in one's security suite, it enables one to relax somewhat....that's judging by some of the posts/articles I've read....a kind of a happy medium between laid back/ blase, and various states of paranoia.
Secunia and members have been very helpful....most notably Maurice Joyce and Yokenny whom you may become "familiar" with.Also Anthony Wells and thedillpickl.A vast amount of knowledge and experience !
