Ihave been attempted to be  plished twice on my Papal account (failed but one nearly fooled me ), and my bank account has been cloned , but nothing to do with the internet and computers ,  and it has taken 3 months to get the money returned ,  :evil2:, I now keep a debit account card with minimal

but isn't revoking the direct debit just as easy?

Yeah, only 3 visits to the bank , many phone calls , The bank staff sugested I had bought the phone and then forgot about it , :violent1: and it has only taken 3 months to get the money back ,

still the upside is whenever I visit the bank the staff huddle behind the secureity screen , and remember my name  :evil6:

i miss the ease of direct debts and transfers in europe though the way it is done in the states is archaic. people even still use cheques to pay in stores sometimes. i remember 10 years or so ago when my bank told me to use up the last of my eurocheques since they were being phased out.

when I click on the "off topic discussion" link, I get the "PC security" page. And yes it's still the case, but the horror movie link works properly. Then again you might just have forgotten to correct it.

Works right for me...

Huh, that's weird, when I hover my pointer over the "Off Topic Discussion" link the bottom left space of my browser indicates http://www.testmy.net/forum/index.php?board=138

It might be only a "problem" on my computer but I'm baffled as to what causes it. I'l try when I get access to another computer.

wep uses an up to 128 bit key for the transfer of information. it can be brute forced fairly quickly.

wpa uses a passphrase to set up a connection and then a key generated from that key for each transmission for each transmission.(it's a lot more complicated, but that's it in a nutshell) since it recalculates new keys so much it is slower than wep, it is not actually certified for WiFi because of that, but it is a lot more difficult to break. one has to interrupt the connection then be able to listen in on the connection being rebuilt to be able to draw conclusions about the initial key. and all this multiple times. then one can try to force a disconnect again and log on to the net as the connections are rebuilt.

if you can use wpa or even better wpa2 if the last ounce of speed isn;t an issue.
