Sample text

Tom gets infected by a virus that sends out messages claiming to be from you (it's filled in your e-mail address in the "From" address field in the e-mail message). One of those messages goes to his friend Jill. 3. Jill's e-mail seIVer has antivirus protection and detects the virus. The seIVer then sends a message warning the sender that he sent out an e-mail containing a virus. But the seIVer thinks the message came from you. 4. You get a message from Jill's seIVer warning that you sent out a virus.

In fact, between you and me, it's my hope and expectation that by the time you're done with this book you'll know more about virus protection than they do, and will be able to get them out of jams when they get into them. OK parents, you can pay attention again. Dr. T divided the ways viruses spread into physical media and network transfer-which makes sense considering her more technological viewpoint. But you need to understand that the way viruses spread really divides into two completely different categories: • Viruses that trick your computer into running them: These are attacks that rely on bugs in your system, errors in system configuration, or other software vulnerabilities.

5 I hate to say it, but your greatest vulnerability is yourself. Now, I don't want to leave you on such a sad note. I know security is a rather depressing subject-all about people trying to attack your computer and invade your privacy. Before I tum the book back to your nonfictional author, please let me assure you that security is a really easy habit to get into, and once you've set things up it becomes mostly an automatic process. And believe me, the time you spend on it will be nothing compared to the time and hassle of cleaning or repairing an infected system.
