It happens all too often: Internet browsing leads to a pop-up message promising $100,000. Intrigued, the web surfer clicks on it, which results in a severe malware infection on the computer. The malware opens a secret door for hackers, who then use it to steal personal information.
Such a problem can be avoided by not clicking on unknown links; a bigger problem is not having anti-virus software installed on a computer to protect against such incidents.
