Question by maxmini: Please tell me it ain’t so! Internet security is all “crap”?
I have lost all faith in internet security, especially when it comes to shopping on line or paying with your credit card. I am told that my password, etc, etc, is foolproof and that nobody can hack my information. But this is what I think. Take a computer “virus”. When it occurs we are told to buy a “program” that will erase it. How is it possible that a program already exist for a virus? I believe that
the very “company” that makes the “antivirus” program, (secretely and criminally) also cause the “virus” to infect the internet, so that they can sell the antivirus. Also, when you ask for support on “line” if you need assistance to fix a computer/program problem, the agent asks you to give him/her all sort of information such as you name, birth, address, and password…these people then reassure you that everything is being monitored for security purpose and that the information you give them will remain “secure”. Oh, yes! It maybe so, but who is to stop “these” agents from (secretly) keeping all the information you give them, and sell it to a third party/hacker not associated
with the company or server who can then use it to steal your identity or have access to your finances? By the way many of these ” on line support people” that help us fix the problem and to whom we give all the information they need, are mostly from China, India, Pakistan..because of cheaper wages. And by the way, even government files are broken into? By whom, you say? Wake up IT IS AN INSIDE JOB !!
