Masters of their domain
Computer security is a complex issue, and there is no simple cure-all. But one thing that continues to baffle me is the way we bank online.
Think about the Web address of your bank. It probably ends in one of the common top-level domains: ".com" if you're in the United States, or, depending on your home country, in something like ".uk", ".de", ".jp", or ".ru". Which is why Web sites with such names as "bankofamerica-online.com", "lloydstsb-banking.com", "hsbc-login.com", or "paypalaccount.com" are so dangerous. They may look like the real thing, but they're operated by criminals.
