National Cybersecurity Awareness Month?

National Cybersecurity Awareness Month? Who would have known? Though mid-page navigation through this article is difficult, it is important reading for all. What is "Vishing?" Add it to your dictionary! See my comment below for a likely way for you to threaten your own security....


  1. From the article, a most important warning concerns your passwords:

    "10. Automated tools that hack through any word

    Attackers have automated software that checks passwords for every word in the dictionary – so using ANY word or name in a password reduces security. (emphasis mine) It’s not a matter of being 'guessable or not guessable' – users need to focus their passwords on letters and numbers that make no sense and wouldn’t be found in any dictionary (or phone book)."
