I wasn't sure whether to post here or in the Web Browsing forum.
I've been using dial-up my whole life. Pretty soon I'll be switching over to cable modem. Before I do, though, I just wondered whether there are any new potential security threats that I'll be exposing myself to that don't necessarily exist with dial-up? That "always-on" thing immediately comes to mind, although I suppose I could always unplug the new modem when not in use.
Any general list of helpful tips to make my migration more secure?
