Synopsis

Living with the Internet and Online Dangers by Corey Sandler

Although cyberspace is considered a modern way to communicate, in many ways it is also the Wild West. The Internet is filled with online dangers - from those who want to infect computers with destructive viruses to criminals who want to steal money, ruin reputations, or cause personal harm. Living with the Internet and Online Dangers highlights the risks and problems that come with modern Web technology, as well as what teens can do to protect themselves. Chapters explore online job hunting, email scams and Internet fraud, finding that special someone online, and wireless security. Written in straightforward language, this new resource is loaded with helpful sidebars, a glossary, index, and appendixes.
