What happen if your computer was hacked? Do you know the effect of this to you or other people? We are lucky that we find useful information out there for free. I read Brian Krebs post in WashingtonPost.com and I would like to share this to all our visitors. I hope this help will help or at least minimize risk of exposure.
"Computer users often dismiss Internet security best practices because they find them inconvenient, or because they think the rules don't apply to them. Many cling to the misguided belief that because they don't bank or shop online, that bad guys won't target them.
