TechBookReport on 'PC Pest Control'
TBR writes "When the general public were being sold on the idea of the ‘information super-highway’ one thing they weren’t prepared for were the hazards of the road. Nobody mentioned highway robbery as a daily possibility. But, with the rise and rise of a connected society we’ve had the rise and rise of crudware of all descriptions – trojans, viruses, worms, bots, adware, spyware and on and on and on. Trying to keep safe requires a bewildering range of software tools, activities and constant vigilance. For the average Joe or Josephine this is no mean feat. Enter then, PC Pest Control, a slim little book from O’Reilly that aims to guide the non-expert user through the PC security nightmare."
