Watch out for new 'online' criminals

 article about Watch out for new online criminals


It seems that there is a new type of criminal on the loose. Those who are determined to create havoc with antivirus software and some media players, like iTunes, for example.

The hackers find security holes in the software and attempt to lift credit card numbers and other personal information from a user's computer. Microsoft's Windows system is still having problems and it appears that more than 600 new internet security holes have been found so far this year. Although the software company immediately created patches for those 'holes' they knew about, there are still approximately 20 dangerous holes unfixed.
