Computer Security – Excerpt – Click Fraud on Rise

Please check the following article on Internet Advertising Click Fraud.  It is important to pay attention to what this article is warning against.  The reason for this series on Computer Security is just how easy it is to be attacked with normal day-to-day activities.  I know of a conference that had their website hacked.  I do not know the details of what was done but they one of the hacks could have been to put links to sites with malware and such.  People going to the site would be unaware until it was too late.  One of the upcoming posts will be on changing settings in your browser to help protect against these unwanted downloads and attacks.
