Top 10 Security Issues That Will Destroy Your Computer In 2013

Here’s one for you. In October, I traveled
to Russia. Nice hotel. Six stars, let’s say. Pretty Moscow views.
Beautiful women. Bentleys in the lobby. Hush-hush restaurants. Too
expensive. Okay, last month I discover that someone had hacked into an
ATM machine there, got my pin number from my Santander debit card and
stole a few hundred bucks from my account. I had to cancel the card, you
all know the routine. I still don’t have a debit card.
Three years ago, I was the victim of identity theft. Someone,
somehow, got my ID through my Best Buy credit card and subsequently took
$8,000 chunks out of my bank account until it was all gone. They forged
my signature. They forged my checks, all made out to some New Jersey
automotive shop that did not exist.
Luckily, I got it all back, two months later. I thought it would never happen again. But it did. And it does. It never ends.
Cyber security guys say it will only get worse in 2013.
