‚   ‚   ‚  

Chapter 12. Security

Modern dangers don't lurk just in dark alleys, earthquake zones, or the moldy containers in your refrigerator. As computers have become linked in a global network, every connected PC has become exposed to a whole host of threats ‚ viruses, worms, scammers and hackers, to name just a few.

While Microsoft hasn't exactly earned a reputation for prioritizing security, Windows XP offers a number of ways you can safeguard your PC from prying eyes and other potential dangers. This chapter explains how to implement a thorough security check; how to safely share files and folders with others; and how to make sure your data doesn't fall into the wrong hands.
