13:04:46 sus_denmark: :(
13:07:22 dave-on-air: http://www.edtechtalk.com/wiki/index.php/EdTechTalk_36
13:07:24 sus_denmark: yes, I read your show notes
13:08:43 scott: have you consulted any security experts?
13:11:18 JeffLebow: yes
13:11:19 sus_denmark: I had a hacker attack when I started using Windows some years ago and I tried everything I could to find out what was going on.It was such a great learning activity and apparently I managed to reinstall and then set up a stronger firewall before the PC was totally erased
13:11:41 JeffLebow: server is now very well protected
13:11:46 JeffLebow: i hope
13:12:04 sus_denmark: I was used to work on mac, so I was quite fearless when starting working on windoze
13:12:14 conrad: the best things for home pc's is to NOT to use IE, use firewall like Sygate Personal Firewall and antivirus - a very good freeware antivirus is Avast
13:13:01 conrad: i have these on my pc and I'm really happy with this set up
13:13:04 sus_denmark: I'm using Zone Alarm software firewall
13:13:09 sus_denmark: the free version
13:13:39 sus_denmark: and my virus protection is AVG
13:13:53 sus_denmark: right
13:13:58 conrad: sorry Jeff but Norton really sucks :D
13:14:00 conrad: haha
13:14:13 sus_denmark: hiya Graham
13:14:23 dave-on-air: hey graham
13:14:25 scott: hey Graham
13:14:28 conrad: hi Graham
13:14:30 GrahamStanley: Hi everyone!
13:14:45 DougSymington: Hey Graham
13:15:17 DougSymington: heard this week about a keytrap virus for stealing pwds
13:15:41 sus_denmark: tell us something more Doug
13:16:29 DougSymington: looking for more info now
13:16:40 scott: keytrap is also an issue in computer labs
13:16:48 scott: has been for years
13:17:43 scott: a text file is generated which records every keystroke that the bad guy/gal gets later
13:18:22 sus_denmark: do you know how to reveal a keytrapper?
13:19:34 DougSymington: here's a link to an article http://www.nytimes.com/2006/02/27/technology/27hack.html?_r=1&oref=slogin
13:20:16 conrad: and don't click on links from people you don't know :D
13:23:07 sus_denmark: yes, that's a very good advice
13:23:53 sus_denmark: Don't forget your toothbrush!
13:24:56 sus_denmark: you could always swallow the paper list with pw
13:25:14 scott: lol
13:27:00 conrad: gmail has implemented antivirus, but i don't know how good it is
13:27:20 sus_denmark: I had a nasty Paypal alike message telling me that my new Omega watch was on its way, and would I just confirm something by ***CLICKING HERE*** - so I reported this to Paypal who confirmed this was fraud
13:27:47 conrad: my co-host Anna had the same thing
