Ensure your security on the internet and use Internet Banking without any worries.
Browsing on the internet can be explained as the physical interaction of your computer with the internet environment. This always bears the risk that the information saved on your computer may be accessible from outside. Security on the internet is the secure transmission of the information that you send and receive.
There are 2 possible ways to gain unauthorized access to a computer:
- The easiest way is to hide a virus program in a file. When you copy this file to your computer or open and run it from an e-mail attachment, the virus infects your computer. Viruses are generally hidden in application (.EXE) files, however the macro virus can also be hidden in office programs such as .DOC, .XLS, and .PPT files. Both virus types may harm your computer or may cause the confidential information on your computer or office network to be copied.
- The best way to prevent this threat is to avoid downloading and using programs from websites that you don't trust 100% and opening e-mail attachments that come from unknown people or institutions.
Another way for unauthorized access is to reach your computer via active website content. Active X and Java are technologies generally used to provide interactive content, however they may also be used for malicious intentions. You can prevent this content from harming your computer by adjusting your browser settings.
To protect your computer against malicious content means; disabling malicious content on websites that you browse through or being warned about this threat. You can define different security levels on your browser. With these security zones, you can prevent problems in regards to using active content and downloading files from trusted websites, and thus surf the internet without any interruptions.
When you first install the program, you can view all the pages on the internet, however you need to classify the websites as trusted and restricted websites.
Some websites, when you visit those websites, collect information about you and keep this information in a text file on your computer. These files are called Cookies. This file contains information about which websites you visit and the information that you enter in forms on these websites.
To have protection against the security gaps that you may encounter on the internet and to protect your computer against possible threats, you need to have various supplementary programs installed on your computer. Some websites from which you can download these supplementary programs such as “Internet Security, Personal Firewall, Anti Virus and Anti Trojan” programs, are listed in the useful links section.
