Browser & Java Tips

 

Keeping your web browser up to date is very important.  If you run a web browser that is out of date and contains security vulnerabilities, you risk having your computer compromised by criminals.  Depending on the security exploit, your personal information (including emails, banking details, online sales, photos, other sensitive information) could be stolen or destroyed. Even if your personal data is not stolen, if compromised, your computer could be turned into a "zombie" sending out thousands of spam emails, or be forced to participate in "denial of service" attacks against other websites, all without your knowledge.
