Switched an AOL offer some novel PC security tips

Switched has a list of “10 Security Tips” to protect your PC, available on AOL this morning, link here.  The article is called “The 10 Biggest Security Risks, and How to Fix Them.”

Some of the recommendations are well known, but interesting is their suggestion not to use Administrator logons at home for any purpose other than security, and not to password protect hardware.

It also recommends using travel email addresses and not using public PC’s (or booting from a Linux-operating USB device if you do).

It provides some usual discussion of WiFi weaknesses and firewalls.
