Keep Your Kids Away From Spyware

Aug 17, 2007
Have you heard of the case where their teacher exposed pornographic sites to students and the person has been imprisoned for forty years? This had become an eye-catching headline of recent times. Don't you smell something fishy in the factual aspect of the news?

Truth is still hidden

Well it is a part of the jurisdiction to find out what really had taken place. But the defense lawyer had placed one very important aspect in this whole event. The case brought up the spyware menace to the limelight. The computer system at which the teacher was working by some means had caught up with the spyware infection. Hence someone anonymous that the teacher was unaware of was automatically operating it. Changes were made in the home page and certain illegitimate tasks were conducted. Loading the pornographic site was a part of this whole nuisance.

We are not concerned about the verdict given to the teacher. But one interesting thing that came up in this case is the spyware threat and how can it play on your image and impression and trap you in the false position. Spyware can easily make you a victim of law.

Restrictions must be maintained

Spyware is always looking for unprotected computers and those users who are not that careful. Young children can be the best targets. While surfing the young boys and girls hop from one site to another in a random manner. Their favorite sites are games sites, the movie sites, music and sites related to famous personalities especially the film stars.

For your kind information spyware hangs around such sites in the form of pop-ups, banner advertisements and some other such menus and waits eagerly to locate the right stroke to slowly approach your computer. Once the route is open the spyware doesn't waste a single moment to drop inside. It makes use of the kids' innocence and vulnerability in understanding the danger residing in their path.

Thus it is the duty of the guardian to keep a track of what your kid is doing at the net. Is he or she getting entrapped into some ill intentions? Now to counter with the intruder in the web medium you have to make use of some such tools. For keeping spyware out of your system you need protection of anti-spyware and spycheckers. Also teach your children to operate the system by taking some precautions like not opening unknown files and images.
