White paper explains internet threats

10 July, 2009
A free guide to hacks, hoaxes and other horrors of the internet has been published by Network Box
I was a little sceptical when I read that another white paper had been published about internet worries and how to avoid them so I expected to see more of the same stuff about not opening suspicious attachments and keeping your anti-virus software up to date.

However, 'Hacks, Hoaxes and Horrors' by Network Box offers a little more than this. Without delving too deeply into the technicalities of what goes on, the paper does scratch beneath the surface to explain how a hacker goes about finding a weakness, how an SQL injection attack is performed and how to tell the difference between a genuine site and one that's been put together with the aim of phishing.

In this respect, the white paper adds some value where many other simply re-state what everyone should already know by now.

Hacks, Hoaxes and Horrors is aimed at small businesses for them to spread the message amongst their staff to prevent themselves from falling victim to avoidable malware attacks. Those who will get the most benefit from it are those who know that these threats exist and who want to start asking more questions about it.

You can download the white paper from the Network Box website
