I would like to talk about malware sction from Scoop.
To discribe about malware I want to use two articles.
First article is Don’t fall for malware and scam deals this shopping season
Second article is 'Twilight' fans targeted in Facebook scam
The first article talks about on-line shopping. When we use on-line shopping, we have a risk to get malwares.Such as nowdays, many people buy manythings by internet.
Especially, after Thanks giving, many people start Christmas shoppong.
Actually those days many people do not go to shops to buy products because they use on-line shoppiong.On-line shopping is easy and sometimes cheaper than shops, so many people use those.
As many people know, to use on-line shopping, people need to use Credit cards.
But if that on-line shopping site have some malware or if your PC have malware, your credit card nunmber is stolen by criminal and you will loose a lot of money.
Sometimes, spam maile pretended to be a real Apple store and send e-mail to say here is your I-tune card. Therefore ater the people open that e-mail, people's PC gets malware.
Whatever, what this article want to say is we need to be careful to use on-line shopping site.
Second article talks about when we look at or opne some favorite web-site, we have risk to get malware.The article mentions, some people are very interested to the movie of "Twilight" and they want to know and they want to play that moviess site, so they put the "Play now" button. However, that botton is a malware bottun and after they push the bottum, thier PC get the malware.
The criminals created a lot of way to spread malware for many people, so people need to be careful about which site they watch and which site and file they will be open.
Basically both sites talks about how on-line have risk to get malware.
The article "Don’t fall for malware and scam deals this shopping season" says
"You become a victim of online fraud and identity theft."
The article "'Twilight' fans targeted in Facebook scam"says that
"The link leads to what looks like a Facebook page with a "play now" button that when clicked surreptitiously "likes" the link and spreads it on a visitor's Facebook account. "
According to those articles we need to be careful to use Internet.
Here is a interesting video that talks about instraction of Cellphone. In Japan many kids use cell phone and they use Internet daily by cell phone, but kids do not know about Internet rule, so they are easy to get Malware or access to negative impact sites. Sometimes it leads children's discrimination and sometimes it lead a crazy expensive amount.
This video try to teach how to use Internet safty.
Basically Both articles talks about different categorize, but both article say "The malware is the reason to broken people's PC and it lead some crime"
Here is other video to descrive what Malware is
When I use on-line shopping, I use only trust web-sites such as Amazon.
Some people are afraid to put thier credit card number, so they use cash on delivery system.
I think If you feel uncomftable, you do not have to use credit card and if you are not comftable to use internet shopping, you do not have to use eaither.
Last week, I got a e-mail from my old friend. The e-mail title had my olf friends' name, but I learned about spam mail in this class, so I did not open that e-mail. I send message for my old friend and ask him "Did you send me e-mail because I got a e-mail that looks like spam mail?" and my friend send me back e-mail and said he did not send me e-mail for me.
After that I felt lit bit scary because if I did not learn about malware this class, I might opend that e-mail and my PC got a malware.
PC is not cheap products, so we do need to keep good condition as much as we can and want to use log time. Also, our private infromation is impossible to put prise, so we really need to be careful about malware and computer virouse.
