Millions of Consumer PC’s are Compromised!

I think anyone that has any tech savvy at all will agree with a host of people when I say that at some point something very serious is going to have to be done if we are going to be able maintain the level of performance on the net.

I worry about identity theft and a host of other issues that go along with having my entire family online. I am pro-active in making sure all of the security of my PC’s are up to date. But I see it everyday when people I know are doing stupid things with their computers that will in the end result in identity theft and a whole host of other bad things.

A secretive conference last week came up with some wild ideas but in the end they think the government is going to have to get involved and at this point it would seem to me that a coalition of computer vendors and software companies could really make a impact her by assuring that computers have all the tools pre-loaded on them, with lifetime updates and remote management to make sure they keep the door closed on hackers.
