Security update – Beware of earthquake related scams

Mar 11th, 2011 | Posted by | Filed under Indianapolis IT support
With the recent earthquake in Japan security researchers are warning against many related scams and potential threats.  Based on similar recent disasters, such as the earthquake in Haiti and Hurricane Katrina it is important to be sure where you view information about the earthquake on the Internet and contribute money to relief efforts.  Results in Google for earthquake related searches are already showing infected websites for many search terms.  Many of those web pages can infect your computer just by visiting the site.  When reading related news or making contributions ensure you do so from well known reputable sites.
