Hack Yourself for Top Security

Tuesday, 30 April 2002, 10:21 AM EST

Security, like charity, begins at home. No one—not your employer, not your ISP—has a greater effect on whether you're going to get whacked by a virus or have your privacy violated by a Trojan horse or spyware than you.

We've created a page at the ExtremeTech Web site with up-to-date links to all of our favorite testing, probing, hacking, and antihacking programs and sites. The goal of /syscheck is to help keep you updated and your system as secure as possible. We'll update the page regularly, and we're also eager to hear about your favorite sites.
