Features, Office You have just bought tickets to an exotic vacation spot. You board the flight, you land safely, you pull your netbook from your backpack, fire it up, and then check if there are any available Wireless networks. Indeed there are, unencrypted, passwordless, waiting for you. So you connect to the most convenient hotspot and start surfing. Being addicted as you are, you want to login into your email or social network just to check if something cardinal happened in the world during your four-hour flight. You're about to hit the sign in button. Stop. What you're about to do might not be safe.

Yes I know there are a ton of Viruses for Windows, but an up2date browser, AV and some common sense and you are fine.

Unfortunatly this is not the case anymore. Just recently I had to clean out a large scareware infestation that sneaked in by drive-by-download from a trusted supplier site. Our Enterprise McAfee solution was totally useless, too. I now mandated RequestPolicy but there is little you can do when the malicious software comes from a trusted source ;)
