Is all of this security really necessary?
A lot of people think that they are not doing anything on their computer that requires this level of security. Many think “what are the odds anyone will be watching me?’ The facts are that if you send email or use instant messaging, people can read every word you write.

As reported in many newspaper and magazine articles recently, including the “Wall Street Journal”, the threat of people hijacking your data is very real and growing.
