Trashing out tyme

Other than having less time to blog-hop nowadays, the write-up below is another reason why I don't visit blogs anymore.
Once my firewall (which is set to very high), annouces that your blog is a high security risk, you are out of my reading list. Maybe for a trial period of 2 months.
But if the same problem persist, your blog will be categorised as history.

So please, I beg blog-writers, make sure you keep your site save for reading visitors. That is, if you want that high visitors stats. But if high visitors stats is not your type, you are free to let online threats hang on your sites that eventually will slow down your pc performance and delete all files (including photos) from your hard drive.

Not only do I keep a high security firewall. I set my email box to trash all forwarded mails,
multi-receipients mails,
mails without my name,
mails wiithout the senders name,
mails with weird attachments,
mails with invitation to become friends,
and chain letters mails.

I keep my mails (have several mail addresses for different functions) guarded tightly and never display them freely.

So, don't mind me, if I stop reading your writings. Maybe the problem is from your own pc!

Reuters - Tuesday, August 25

Biel, 27, who shot to fame in the TV show "7th Heaven" and most recently starred in "Easy Virtue," was deemed the most dangerous, with fans having a one-in-five chance of landing at a website that has tested positive for online threats, such as spyware, adware, spam, phishing, and viruses.

"Cybercriminals are star watchers too - they latch onto popular celebrities to encourage the download of malicious software in disguise," McAfee's Jeff Green said in a statement.

"Consumers' obsession with celebrity news and culture is harmless in theory, but one bad download can cause a lot of damage to a computer."

"Every day, cybercriminals use celebrities' names and images, like Kim Kardashian and Rihanna, to lure surfers searching for the latest stories, screen savers and ringtones to sites offering free downloads laden with malware," the statement added.

Coming second in the list for the second year running was pop star Beyonce, with McAfee finding that putting "Beyonce ringtones" into a search engine yielded a dangerous website linking to a distributor of adware and spyware.
