"Botnets" are essentially weapons of Internet warfare: A horde of compromised computers used in larger network security attacks. And the scary thing is your computer could be compromised and you wouldn't even know it! But there are ways you can protect yourself from these attacks and prevent your computer from becoming just another "bot." 

 

The term “DDoS” can strike terror in the hearts of network operators, web site owners, gamers, educators, or anyone who relies on Internet service – which today means just about everyone. “DDoS” – pronounced “dee-doss” – stands for Distributed Denial of Service. It refers to a type of Internet attack where the attacker uses many hundreds or thousands of computers (the “distributed” part) to target a single system, with the goal of denying the target’s ability to use the Internet (the “denial of service” part).

Take a moment and ask yourself: How many usernames and passwords do you have? Now consider how many times you’ve forgotten them and had to request a password reset.

Beyond all the food, family and football we enjoy on Thanksgiving Day, there is also the deep understanding of what this day truly means. It’s a time for gathering with loved ones and reflecting on everything we are fortunate to have in our lives.

And while having our most vital human needs met is obviously at the top of the “being thankful” list, there are many other things in our daily lives for which we can and should give thanks.
