Internet security provider AVG blogs the 5 myths of staying safe online
by Michael McKinnon
When faced with the challenge of staying safe online, it's no surprise that we're all motivated by the best of intentions to help spread advice that on the surface seems reasonable and sound. However, as technology evolves sometimes the best advice fades and is quickly replaced by better tactics, in response to the ongoing fight against cybercrime.
