Public Safety Tip
Cyber Safety 101: Tactics for Teens and Young Adults (Part 3)
Steer clear of peer-to-peer and file sharing networks. You always need to pay special attention to what you download and share online – Peer-to-peer networks are often swamped with malicious files. It’s not just music and movie downloads that you need to be aware of. Malware often piggybacks on other freebies that promise ringtones, smile icons, and screensavers.
Navigate social networking sites with care. Social networking and other Web 2.0 features make communicating, socializing, and sharing information easier than ever, but they also open you up to a variety of online threats. Be on guard when logging into online hotspots like Myspace and Facebook. To avoid phishing and malware installations, use caution when you check messages, click on advertisements, and access links in other member profiles. (Resource Lavasoft)
