:trumpet: These days the Internet is everywhere. It's in our homes,in our schools,in our library's,in our workplaces, but unfortunately not everyone is as "Cyber Smart" as they should be. Most general end users (the general public) don't realize the dangers lurking around the dark corners of the Internet. Computer Viruses,Malicious Hackers,Spammers they are all real !!!, and have become the next generation of con-artist. There's so many scams going around the net its really hard to keep track of them all. And the bad guys keep coming up with new ones everyday. I feel its the duty of those that "know better" this means everyone from computer manufactures to software developers to tech support personnel have a responsibility to educate the public and put these scamming con-artist out of business every chance we get. And maybe one day we'll be able to put these frauds down and out for good. :thumbsup:

I fully agree, and I love that you made this statement. When I was in college, I had to take a Professional Ethics course while studying for my Associate's degree. My term paper for this course was titled: The Ethical Responsibility of Systems Administrators to Maintain High Levels of Security and Provide Detailed Information to End Users Regarding Internet Threats.

I got an A for that paper, too. :thumbsup:
