1.23 MB | 3 files |  DOC, PDF

Not securing your Web browser can lead quickly to a variety of computer problems caused by anything from spyware being installed without your knowledge to intruders taking control of your computer.

Today, Web browsers such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Apple Safari (to name a few), are installed on almost all computers. Because Web browsers are used so frequently, it is vital to configure them securely. Often, the Web browser that comes with an operating system is not set up in a secure default configuration. Not securing your Web browser can lead quickly to a variety of computer problems caused by anything from spyware being installed without your knowledge to intruders taking control of your computer.

Ideally, computer users should evaluate the risks from the software they use. Many computers are sold with software already loaded. Whether installed by a computer manufacturer, operating system maker, Internet Service Provider or by a retail store, the first step in assessing the vulnerability of your computer is to find out what software is installed and how one program will interact with another.
