Krebs's 3 Basic Rules for online safety: Brian Krebs over at krebsonsecurity.com manages to boil years of "security awareness" training for home users down into three simple rules that pretty much everyone can understand and follow. Kudos, Brian!

If reading the three Basic Rules is too basic for you (even though you haven't updated your Java yet - you know who you are :), here's a very decent 16-page write-up by Symantec on Qakbot, a keystroke logging online banking trojan that contains its own SOCKS proxy, so that the bad guys can plunder your bank account via your own PC, to defeat any IP filtering your bank might have in place.

Have a safe weekend.
