"It never ceases to amaze me; in spite of security concerns and virii that float through E-mail, people
still do nothing to prevent the tide of impersonation and mistaken identity in modern-day electronic
communication. Threats like the "ILOVEYOU" virus could have been avoided if people had used something to
digitally sign their E-mail. For some of us, it's a no-brainer. E-mail is not a secure medium, it is
usually sent in plain-text for anyone to read. Virii that take control of your mailer agent can send mail
as you, and anyone with half a clue can send an email that to the uneducated looks like it came from
anybody- including you." Get wise with more words from BinaryFreedom.com.
