McAfee's New Cyber Security Tactic--Information
McAfee's new Consumer Threat Alert program is dedicated to keeping consumers informed about the latest malware and online scams.
Security software vendor McAfee last week launched its new Consumer Threat Alert program, a blog and e-mail subscription service dedicated to keeping consumers up-to-date on the latest malware and online scams circulating throughout cyberspace.
The program's initial advisory was a primer on scareware, also known as rogue software or fake antivirus software, which preys on users' naiveté and their instinctive response to what appears to be a legitimate security shortcoming with their PCs or mobile devices.
With cyberattacks on the rise, a well-informed business and consumer populace is one of the best weapons against such threats to security.
